The dissolution of a marriage can be complicated for both emotional and financial reasons. However, one of the most complex parts of getting a divorce is the sale of the marital home, even if two spouses easily agree to it. A couple of tips might help those navigating real estate sales during the divorce process in Texas.
When embarking on the sale of a home during divorce, choosing a real estate agent who is experienced in working with divorcing couples is paramount. After all, these types of real estate agents realize that both parties may not necessarily want to see each other during the home selling process. As a result, they are willing to meet with or talk to both parties separately to get the job done.
In addition, creating a clear plan for preparing the marital home for showings is critical. The couple would be wise to decide early on who will handle the preparations. Alternatively, they could decide to hire professionals to handle such projects as painting, making minor repairs or even staging the house to make it more appealing to would-be buyers.
There’s nothing easy about divorce, and likewise, selling a home is hardly a simple process. Both processes, however, can be more manageable with the help of a qualified real estate agent and a qualified attorney in Texas. An applied understanding of both the real estate process and divorce law may help a spouse going through divorce to more confidently and effectively navigate these processes in the most personally favorable way possible, given the circumstances surrounding the home sale and marital breakup.
