Hiring a divorce Realtor can be a stressful process. Emotions tend to run high in a divorce when a home is involved. In addition to delays, conflicts arising out of failure to agree on the offer price can lead to the home being sold at a loss. A divorce real estate agents job is to minimize the inconveniences and conflicts that typically arise when selling a home.
Conflict between Divorcing Spouses Selling a Home
Money is the main causes of fights between spouses. It’s no wonder why selling a home is a major source of conflict between divorcing spouses.
Conflict over the sales process makes it necessary to work with an experienced Realtor. Finding a divorce Realtor that both spouses trust can facilitate communication and ensure the sale process moves along quickly.
Hire the Divorce Realtor You Are Most Comfortable With
Divorce attorneys are responsible for dividing property and debt. In states like Arizona that have community property laws, proceeds from the sale of the home can be held in a trust until finalization of the divorce.
Selling a home in a divorce is no different from selling any other property. A divorce attorney can refer you to a Realtor with experience selling homes. You can also find a divorce Realtor on your own by researching real estate agents online.
Make sure you ask the agent specific questions about their credentials, references, number of properties sold, and experience working with divorcing couples. You might want to ask hypothetical questions about potential conflicts with your spouse and how they would deal with the situation.
Keep in mind that the most suitable divorce Realtor doesn’t necessarily need to be a certified real estate divorce specialist. Your priority should be hiring an experienced real estate agent with experience selling homes in your community.
