Selling A Home While Getting Divorced

By
Real Estate Agent with Chestatee Real Estate 217370

This post is to explain what I do and do not do as your Realtor representing you selling a home during your divorce. Or selling a home you own jointly with your x.

My job is to help the two of you sell the house.

If both of you are own title I am representing both of you.

I advise both of you what the market is doing and help the two of you determine the asking price. 

I place the property in the MLS and my extensive advertising program. I keep the two of you up to date on everything.

I help you negotiate the offers as they come in and guide you through the closing process.

I can help either or both of you buy or lease another home after the home is sold.

 

Here is what I DO NOT DO!

Decide how to split the money from the sale.

Decide who gets what.

Show favoritism to one of you over the other. Remember we will have a signed listing agreement where I am agreeing to represent both of you.

Disclose you plans for after the sale to your X. As long as your plans do not affect the sale of the property I figure they are none of your X's business.

Bottom line , I have nothing to do with who gets what. I do not decide who's fault the divorce is or who did who wrong.

My only job is to help get the house sold!

Being tender hearted, tough skinned and getting them both to the real estate closing. Even if they can not stand to be in the same room. Or sign separately.

Good explanation. I am here to listen and try to get the most I can for you, but not to play middleman between the parties.

Sometimes it feels like we should have a referee coat on. It's like 2 people can't be civil to each other.
