If you’re wondering about the ins and outs of selling your home during a divorce in Hawaii Hawaii… we’ll dive into the steps and things to look out for in this article.
With over 50% of American marriages unfortunately ending in divorce, many Hawaii Hawaii residents are looking or advice for selling a home during a divorce.
A home is one of the most valuable joint assets and obviously cannot be divided without first liquidating. While a divorce is one of the most stressful and emotionally charged life events, it’s important to remain rational. There are several factors to consider when facing a divorce in a real estate market that has shown both ups and downs since the housing bubble burst.
Determine if (and when) You Will Be Selling Your Home During Your Divorce in Hawaii
In many divorce cases, one spouse will keep the home, buying out the other spouse’s share.
In some cases, agreements are made where one spouse uses the house for a set period of time (this is usually used when there are children in the home), and then sells the house at a certain date (usually when the children reach a certain age).
Get Professional Help – Agents and Home Buyers / Investors
Selling a home is a difficult process when everything is going right.
During a divorce, you have a lot more going on and a lot to consider. You shouldn’t take on the task of selling your home yourself. You may have disagreements with your spouse about your selling price or other issues. By working with a real estate professional… either a reputable agent or real estate investment firm, you’ll both have a neutral third party who can help you determine a fair selling price and handle the marketing of your home.
