No one goes into a marriage expecting a divorce, yet it happens to many people all the same. If you have filed (or are contemplating) divorce, you need an Real Estate Divorce Specialist who is experienced in handling the sale of your marital home and other properties. We can help.

Once you file for a divorce, there will be three processes that happen at the same time. Each of these processes offer trained professionals to help you during a divorce.
This begins with filing for a divorce, new living arrangements, working out the finances of both spouses and child custody. A family law attorney is best suited to guide you through this process. In Michigan, the legal process typically takes from 6 months to a year depending on children and assets.
Divorce is emotionally draining, not only for both spouses, but for any children and to a lesser extent the extended family. Many people going through a divorce find help from a certified divorce conselor or family therapist who are specially trained to ease the emotional turmoil during and after a divorce.
The family home is typically the biggest financial asset in a marriage. In many cases it will need to be sold as part of the process of dividing the assets equitably after the divorce. While any real estate agent can sell a house, only a real estate divorce specialist has the tools and experience in family law court to make this a relatively fast, easy and painless process. A divorce real estate specialist combines compassion with their clients and effectiveness to get the job done.
There are a lot of real estate agents out there to choose from. This means that many of your options have probably never sold for a person in your situation. You don’t need a Realtor specializing in divorce, as very few are out there.
However, you do want a divorce listing agent that has been down this road many times. Some Realtors may even avoid divorce home sales because they are too much trouble. A Realtor who avoids controversy is not the individual you want selling your house.
Find an agent that is familiar with divorce home sales. They may have been in a divorce personally or may have experienced moving houses while folks are going through a divorce. If the experience is there, your agent will know how to be sensitive to your needs and the volatility of your current circumstances. The agent will also understand how important it is to sell the house fast while still receiving great offers for the home.
