Options for Your Home During a Divorce

Buying Out the Other Spouse’s Share: One spouse retains the home by buying out the other’s share. This involves a property valuation, agreement on buyout terms, refinancing the mortgage, and formalizing the arrangement in the divorce settlement.

Other Arrangements Based on Legal Agreements and Individual Circumstances: Various alternative arrangements exist, including co-ownership agreements, deferred sales, equity sharing, renting out the property, sale with future profit-sharing, family trusts, occupancy agreements, and refinancing. These options depend on the couple’s preferences, financial situations, and legal considerations.

Selling the Home and Dividing Proceeds: The home is sold, and the proceeds divided between the divorcing spouses. This process includes selecting a realtor, setting a competitive price, preparing the home for sale, marketing, accepting an offer, and closing the sale. When deciding to sell and divide, the help of a real estate professional is vital. In the next section we’ll discuss how our team can ease the selling process.
