DIVORCE YOUR HOUSE AND YOUR MONEY

Divorce is difficult enough, then you add the emotions of selling your home and the financial stress of searching for another one--it all can be overwhelming! Geni Manning knows from personal experience how difficult this time in your life can be. She can be sensitive to your situation and is always available to help.

 

You may be asking yourself right now, “Should I keep the house or should we sell it?” The answer to that question depends on several factors, here are a few: 

    #1  Can I afford the payment, maintenance, utilities, taxes, and HOA fees by myself?

    #2 Do I need to stay here for the children (schools, emotional stability, etc.)?

    #3 Do I want to stay here with all the past memories or do I want to start new ones with a fresh start?

 

Whether you decide to sell your home, or choose to buy out your spouse's equity, you need to ask, “What Is My Home Worth?” We will give you a Comparative Market Analysis to give you an accurate ‘home value’ with no obligation. 

 

Don’t use Zillow, Realtor.com or any other online sources to get your home’s value! These sources do not consider the condition or upgrades you might have or don’t have compared to the sold properties. Don’t order an appraisal either. This might look to the opposing party as biased and cost you unnecessary money. Depending on the sq. footage of your home and location, it could cost $500-$1500. If you refinance to pull the equity out to buy out your spouse, an appraisal will be required and your lender will NOT be able to use your appraisal. You don’t want to pay for two!

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS
PROVOKE ANXIETY

Questions will arise when trying to sell or keep your home. We can provide you answers that will help decrease your fears and clear up misconceptions so you can move forward confidently.

 

Answers to your questions will keep you from making snap decisions that could severely impact your future and could greatly influence your decision to keep or sell the family home.

 

There are considerations to be made for each piece of the puzzle, and they all require a significant amount of due diligence and early financial planning. You can keep the house, but it can carry risks and challenges. The liability of these risks may be the very reason to sell.
