You might think that the role of a good real estate agent selling the home during a divorce is not much different from selling real estate during normal times. However, working with a Realtor experienced with divorce and separation issues and legal matters can be extremely beneficial by preparing for and preventing potential issues, tackling crucial situations in the easiest ways possible, and preventing minor things become complicated arguments that create even more stress, tension, and drama.
One of the primary roles of a good agent is communicating with both of the divorcing owners, as well as the potential buyers and other real estate agents. Agents who are inexperienced with divorce situations might not understand the lack of communication between you and your ex-spouse, causing them to only relay messages to one of you. Or, they may expect both of you to be present at the same time to sign documents, creating an uncomfortable situation for you.
Accomplished agents know the timeframe you have to work through due to court orders or other legal agreements, and are able to work under tight schedules. The best agents understand your needs and fine-tune their approach accordingly to serve your best interests.
If you’re ready to take the next step in selling your home, be sure to choose Realtors that are knowledgeable, experienced, and understanding of your situation. We’d love the opportunity to work with you!
