No Debating Who Pays for What
People who are going through a divorce can be quick to get in disagreements about the house. Things you might not have argued about before can quickly become an area of contention. Who will do the cleaning? Pay for the landscaping? Deal with the lender, insurance company, and utility providers? Selling can be a lot of work and it is important you are able to work together throughout the process. The last thing you want to do is set yourself up for more arguments and hassles. When you sell the house in a few days as opposed to a few months, you can avoid a lot of arguing. A private sale to a professional house buyer can help you solve all of these problems. And remember, you can Sell Now and Move later when you sell to Gary Buys Houses.
A Fast Sale Provides Closure
You will both be able to move on quickly without the financial ties to a house that you both own. When you list the house, you could spend a month or two just finding a buyer that is qualified to buy a house. From there, it will still be several more weeks until the sale is final. And if the first buyer fails, you will have to start the selling process all over. All of this unknowing makes things even more stressful for both of you. If you are getting a divorce and want to sell the house, you will likely want to be able to move on quickly rather than dragging things out. When you sell your house to a direct buyer such as Gary Buys Houses, you won’t have to extend a situation that is likely pretty painful already. Selling your house quickly and easily will help everyone move on.
If You Hire An Agent…
If you decide you would rather give listing a shot, set clear parameters ahead of time. Decide how selling costs will be handled and who will have to deal with the agent, with showings, cleaning, maintenance, receiving offers, etc. Determine your lowest acceptable price and decide how the profits will be divided if it is not already laid out in your divorce agreement. While you might get lucky and have things done right away, you are more likely to spend several weeks or months waiting for things to be finalized.
A quick sale to a professional house buying company might be just what you are looking for. Read here to learn more about the differences between listing with an agent vs a We Buy Houses Company.
