What To Do With The Home In A DivorceIf there is one thing that I see divorcing couples get wrong most often, it is the way they deal with the home they have owned together.

While I am not a lawyer and I'm not providing "LEGAL" advice, take it from somebody who has helped hundreds of divorcing couples, there is a right way (and at least FOUR wrong ways) to handle the house in a divorce.

Tell your attorney that you want to do it right!

So that's five different ways to handle the house in a divorce, please remember to "like" the video on YouTube! Thank you.

Divorce is an extremely emotional issue!!! Has to be handled with TLC!!!

If there is one thing that divorcing couples get wrong most often, it is the way they deal with the home they have owned together.

Excelleent advice, Joe!  I have seen the best and the worst of divorcing couples during home sales.  If they can park their emotions (at least temporarily), it can make significant benefit for both of them during a home sale!

Man Joe, wish this post was available a year ago.  It is so true, been dealing with a divorce case in which the Mrs...has been living in the house and basically been an hindrance to the entire selling process, in some form or fashion at every phase, including denying showings, suggesting later times, that were convenient to her not the buyers, and this was with min 2 hr notices...been a nightmare for all the reasons you stated

I find that for all the similarities, iEach situation brings with it unique circumstances and therefore needs a fairly gentle hand to understand the nuances that you talked about

Good morning, Joe... just closed on a home that was being sold pursuant to a divorce... fortunately there was no acrimony and both parties worked together and with me to get maximum dollar for their home.

If there is ever a time to step back and work to take emotion out of the equation, this is it. There is no room for bitterness or rancor in splitting up or selling property in a divorce.  I'll be back to watch the video...
