WHAT IS A CERTIFIED DIVORCE REAL ESTATE SPECIALIST?
Anyone going through a divorce which involves any real estate needs a professional, not an amateur. Divorce specialists are trained in the legal and tax aspects of the divorce process as it relates to real estate. We have specialized knowledge regarding obscure legal rulings, regulations, and tax implications and how it can affect divorcing couples.
A large part of our training is understanding the emotional nature of property issues in the divorce process. There may be difficulty deciding on such things as a sale price or disagreement on the anticipated equity.. This can be further complicated if the divorce is contentious. We work to educate couples about the financial and legal aspects of the real estate process. Our job is not to take sides, but to focus on the property issues and demonstrating to the divorcing couple that they do have options.
WHAT VALUE DO WE BRING TO THE TABLE?
Historically, the family home is the asset that most often causes controversy both before and after a divorce. To avoid costly mistakes, you must address tough but necessary questions.
What are the tax liabilities should one party keep the home?
What are the possible pitfalls if one party stays and the other is responsible for paying the mortgage?
What are the actual annual costs to maintain the home and has a recent inspection been done?
Should you keep the home and buyout your soon to be ex-spouse, or vice versa?
Can either of you really afford to keep it after the divorce?
The answer to these and other weighty questions are best approached with real estate agents that specialize in divorce. Neutral, third party information can help you make logical decisions removed from the emotional turmoil.
