If you’re wondering about the ins and outs of selling your home during a divorce in Wisconsin… we’ll dive into the steps and things to look out for in this article.
Many Wisconsin residents are looking for advice on selling a home during a divorce. The divorce statistics
in America is currently estimated at 50% of marriages.
Of all the joint assets, a house is likely the most valuable, and it can’t be divided until it is liquidated. While a divorce is a stressful and emotionally taxing life event, it’s important to remain rational and level headed. There are several factors to consider when facing a divorce in a Wisconsin real estate market.
Determine if (and when) You Will Be Selling Your House During A Divorce in Wisconsin
It’s common to see one spouse keep a house by buying out the other’s share.
Agreements are also made where one spouse uses the house for a period of time and then sold at a specified date (this is usually the case when children are in the home and the specified date is typically when the children reach a certain age).
Get Professional Help – Agents and Home Buyers / Investors
Selling a house under normal conditions is already a difficult process…
Selling your house during a divorce adds even more to the process. We wouldn’t recommend taking on the task of selling your home by yourself. There may be disagreements with your spouse about selling price or other issues.
But, by working with a real estate professional… (either a reputable agent or real estate investment firm)
There will be a neutral third party who can help you determine an accurate selling price and handle the marketing of your home.
