Divorce can be a difficult time for all parties involved. It is very possible that the last thing people want to do at this time is work together to sell a house. In our latest post, we discuss the easiest way to sell your house during divorce in Houston.
Going through this huge life change while dividing assets can be emotionally and physically draining, depending on your situation. The process of selling a house can feel overwhelming and stressful, even if you are splitting on great terms. There are easy ways to sell your Houston house in order to quickly move on and begin the next chapter of your life. At Heritage Home Buyers, we make the process as simple as possible!
Sell Your House Without An Agent!
A quick, direct sale offers an abundance of benefits. You won’t have to worry about preparing your house for the MLS, maintaining cleanliness, making repairs, hiring a photographer, marketing the house, paying to have it listed, or paying any commissions once the house is sold. With a direct sale, you will know how much we can offer and when we can close from the start.
No Debating Who Pays for What
When going through a divorce, things you may not have discussed before can quickly become an area of contention. Who will do the cleaning, pay for the landscaping, or deal with the lender, insurance company, and utility providers? It’s important to work together throughout the process, as selling can be a lot of work. Potential conflicts can be avoided when you sell the house in a few days rather than a few months.
A Fast Sale Provides Closure
Without financial ties to a shared property, both parties can move on quickly. With a listing, you could be spending months trying to find a buyer and then finalizing a sale. If you are getting a divorce, you will likely want to be able to move on quickly rather than dragging things out. With a direct sale to a buyer such as Heritage Home Buyers, you won’t have to prolong a situation that is likely pretty painful already. Selling quickly and easily will help everyone move on.
If You Hire An Agent…
If you choose to give listing a shot, set clear boundaries ahead of time. Decide how to handle selling costs and decide who will deal with the agent, showings, cleaning, maintenance, etc. Determine your lowest acceptable price and decide how to divide the profits if it is not already laid out in your divorce agreement. While you may get lucky and be done right away, you are more likely to spend several weeks or months waiting for things to be finalized.
