Selling Your House During Divorce

Divorcing couples often decide to sell their house during divorce proceedings because they are dividing up their assets. The home sale process can be stressful for happily married couples, so trying to sell your marital home during a divorce can be a nightmare. On top of the personal stress that comes with trying to separate property, there are also tax implications on the sale of the house which could further complicate a divorce settlement agreement.


Here are a few things that divorcing couples should consider before selling their family home.

Is there a pre-nuptial agreement?

A pre-nuptial agreement is a legal document that outlines how property division, including real estate will occur in the case of divorce. If there is already a pre-nuptial agreement in place, selling the house may be a non-issue. 

Is your realtor ready to play referee?

If you are planning to sell your house through a real estate agent, make sure they know that there is a divorce in progress. Many realtors don’t want to work with homeowners during divorce proceedings because the process can become contentious.  

Did you hire an appraiser?

If you plan to sell your house during a divorce, you will need to hire a professional appraiser that can tell you the value of the home. This is important in order to properly divide the assets. Of course, there is no guarantee that the sale price will be equal to the amount of the appraisal. Potential buyers may find flaws with the home and not be willing to pay the asking price. The listing and tour process can take months. 

Are you ready to pay multiple mortgage payments?

If you are selling your home during a divorce, one or both parties may want to move out of the family home. If the house is no longer your primary residence but still sitting on the market waiting to be sold, you will need to pay multiple mortgage payments and/or rent until the home finally sells. 

Consider a cash offer instead.

If you are getting a divorce, the last thing you need is to go through the stress and hassle of trying to sell your home through a real estate agent. Why not make the process quick and easy with a cash offer instead? OneStep Offer pays cash for houses and fast. We can help you close on your house quickly and get ready to move on with your life following your divorce. Give our phone number a call today, or simply fill out the quick form below.

How OneStep Offer Buys Your Home As-Is?

It's time to focus on your new mortgage and stop making two monthly payments!

No one wants to be making mortgage payments on a house they no longer want to own. The longer you wait for your closing date, the more mortgage payments you have to make on the vacant home. During this period of time, your budget is stretched thin as you’re paying for a second home.

Every month that you wait to sell your home, you’re putting money into it that you may not get back. Every month that you wait to sell your house, your needs get pushed aside while you pay for two homes. There’s a better way with OneStep Offer!

Building codes pertain to the construction and occupancy of a home. They are put in place to protect the health and safety of those who spend time in or around the home, including residents, neighbors, and even passersby.


Empty houses make buyers believe they can offer a lower home purchase price.

There’s another pesky risk to leaving your home on the market waiting for a sale. When homebuyers see a vacant house, they think it’s prime for low-balling . This means you may not get a very good offer when you do finally get one. Remember, home buyers are thinking about their own wallets, and they’re hurting from the down payment and closing costs, so they’re looking for a bargain.

The longer the time period between listing the home and selling it, the more likely it is that you’ll receive low offers. You need to sell your home fast, especially when relocating!
