Selling a home and getting divorced are notoriously two of the most stressful events in one’s lifetime. But don’t worry, our very experienced team are extremely familiar with the importance of dealing with such sales with delicate sensitivity, and we can help alleviate some of the stress.
If you've decided to start afresh and sell the property as part of the divorce settlement, it’s likely you'll want a swift sale.
Here are a few things to consider when selling your property as a result of separation:
We can show you examples of recently sold properties in the local area to give you an idea of a realistic sales price. Whilst our team are experts at achieving the best price possible, if you’re after a really quick sale you may need to factor in that this often comes with a compromise of accepting a lower offer. It’s important to start the process of selling your property with a clear idea of what you’re willing to accept.
Once you’ve secured a buyer, our progression team will chase up mortgage lenders, solicitors and other estate agents involved in the chain to make sure everything runs smoothly in a timely manner, helping to push through to completion as quickly as possible.
If one or both of you have moved to a new home, it can be easier to stage the property ready for marketing photos. Depersonalising the space by removing belongings helps potential buyers to imagine themselves living in the property. This is a great opportunity to de-clutter and organise your belongings.
If you're not living in the property and you don’t want to attend viewings, that’s not a problem. We can keep hold of a key at our office so we show potential buyers around on your behalf. If you would like to attend viewings, our friendly team will join you and we can even coach on you on how to conduct viewings in a professional manner.
If you require a local rental property or are looking to purchase another home, we can let you know as soon as any new properties come on the market that are in your price range.
