sell-my-house-fast-divorceIf you are getting divorced and need to sell a house, Gary Buys Houses is here to help you learn all of the options that are available to you and your soon to be ex spouse.  Over 50% of us will find ourself in a divorce situation in our lifetimes, and many of those people will have a house to sell.  Typically if you are getting a divorce and want to sell your house, both parties must agree.  If only one of you want to sell the house, most likely you will have to wait until the divorce settlement is final.  But what if each of you agree you want to sell your house?

After deciding you will sell the house, now you have to decide how to sell the house.  Most of the time this means deciding between listing the house or selling the house to a Professional House Buying Company like Gary Buys Houses.  This will involve a lot of decisions like: How fast do I have to sell my house? How fast do I need to move?  How fast do I need my money from the sale of my house? And how much money will I get?  Can I sell my house with a lot of repairs?

How Fast Do I Have to Sell My House?

If you are getting divorced and want to sell your house, sometimes unique situations come up that may make it more difficult than the average house sale.   Especially if one or both people need some money now but need a place to stay for a while.  For example, some direct house buyers will allow people to sell their house now, get their money now and move later.  We do that here with our Utah Sell Now program.  Sometimes House Repairs might get in the way.  Again a professional house buying company can help with these and many other issues if you need to sell your house fast.

If you have a lot of time to sell your house and doing some repairs or waiting for needed money is fine, then you may want to consider listing your house.  We can actually help you with that if you would like.  So how fast you need to sell your house may determine how you sell your house.

How Fast Do I Need To Move?

A lot of times this is a big part of how fast you need to sell your house.  Do you or both of you need to leave the area now and get the house sold, or does one of you want to stay as long as possible?  We can help in either of these situations coordinating getting you the money you need and the time in the house you need.

How Fast Do I Need the Money From the Sale of My House?

Again this kind of goes along with how fast do I have to move, and when do I need to be moved out of my house?  Sometimes people need the money from the sale of their house while getting divorced right away, and sometimes they can wait.

If you are Getting Divorced and Need to Sell a House

It can be complicated.  Selling a house, dealing with repairs, dealing with moving on a certain date, needing money now but want to stay in the house for a while…all of these things plus any number of other reasons can make selling a house while getting a divorce stressful.  Sometimes a divorce situation with a house involved is a simple matter, and sometimes it is a nightmare.  We love to answer questions to help you make the best decision for everyone involved.  Please call us at the number below or Fill Out The Form.

Do You Need to Sell House Before or After Divorce?

One of the difficult parts of divorce can be selling your house. sell-a-house-while-divorcing

A house can hold sentimental value which can make thinking about selling your house while divorcing difficult.  Sometimes people want to be out of the house quick, and sometimes people want to stay in their house.  Then there is the issue of money.  There are a number of situations to consider and we are going to go over them here.

Selling a home during a divorce holds one major difference than a typical sale… you have to figure out who is going to get what before you sell.  Whether it’s the personal property or the money from the sale of the house, the hardest part is going to be figuring out who walks away with what and when.

Your attorney is the mediator who will help you through dividing up possessions and the house equity so that it is fair.  He or she can also help you work through the sale of your house while in a divorce.  Before you contact a Realtor or a Professional House Buyer,  you will need an understanding of who is going to get what and who will need to move and when.

A  Realtor or a Direct House Buyer like Gary Buys Houses can help you to determine the value of your house and how much you will net from the sale of your house including how much you will net if you sell to a professional house buyer.  Having a good understanding of the value of your home will give you an estimate of the equity you’ll walk away with.

Getting divorced and selling a house can be done using an agent or selling to a professional house buyer.  Each way will affect how long you can stay in the house.

Selling a House Before Divorce Agreement

Selling a house before the finalized divorce agreement from your attorney is very possible as long as both parties can agree on what price and how long each or one of you is going to stay in the house.  Perhaps listing your house with a real estate agent will work for you if everyone is ready to move, and you can wait for your money from the sale of your house.  Maybe talking with a Professional House Buying Company could help you with things like getting your money now for the sale of your house and moving later or helping you with repairs.   A direct house buyer can be very flexible with every aspect of your move and selling your house.

Selling a House After Divorce Agreement

Selling a house after the divorce agreement is finalized means you have to follow exactly what the divorce decree says.  Listing the house or working with a “We Buy Houses” company should be fine as long as both parties agree on everything.  And yes, utilizing our Utah Sell Now Move Later Program will always work.  We will make sure we can solve all of your house problems.


You have a lot of options, and we would love to talk to you.

We are always here to answer your questions, so please get a hold of us today.
