In the YouTube video above, Parkland and South Florida Real Estate Agent Michael Citron discusses how to sell your real estate home while going through a divorce. Unfortunately, I deal with many divorce sales while selling real estate in Parkland and the rest of South Florida. It is imperative to have both husband and wife contact their individual attorneys in order to put together a formal agreement on the disbursement of the proceeds from the sale or agree to leave the proceeds from the sale in a third party escrow account and decide on how the funds should be disbursed at a later time. This should take place before the home goes on the market for sale. Other factors to discuss with the attorneys is who will be living in the home as well as how the bills, including the mortgage, will be paid during the listing period. All of these items should certainly be discussed and agreed upon by all parties before the home is offered for sale to potential buyers.
It is also important not to wait to discuss the proceeds and other factors after the home is on the market or when you receive a formal offer, as this can be problematic and could loose both parties a great offer, if they cannot agree on the disbursement of the net proceeds. As a result, please give me a call at 954-609-0591, as I have sold dozens of homes in Parkland and South Florida where couples are either going through a divorce or are already divorced. I can also recommend a divorce attorney to help answer all of your questions and concerns or speak to your attorney if you have already hired one.
