Selling your Washington DC house while going through a divorce

Selling your Washington DC house while going through a divorce.         

                                                                                Marriage that is over 

Some songs have been written titled 'Lets Get Married". One was written by "The Proclaimers". One was written by Al Green. Another one was written by R&B group "Jagged Edge". But have you noticed that there are not any songs (at least that I know of) that is titled "Sweetie,I want to Divorce you." Or "Let's get a Divorce." How come you probably ask? Let's just say that nobody ever expects their marriage to end up in one. 

 

 

So what happens when as the words of B.B King "The thrill is gone" in your marriage? It has to be a very painful when a marriage is dead. Now that you are about to get a divorce,I am sure there are many questions that will arise such as 'What happens to the children?(If you have children of course),What happens to our joint bank accounts?(If you had any together)?,Who is going to pay for the divorce?These are all very important questions that will arise while during the divorce.

 

 

Washington DC House for saleAnother important question to ask is "What happens to our Washington DC house?" Now do you have to sell your DC house during a divorce? The decision is yours to make. But while will you want to hold onto something that will probably remind you of the good memories you had with the person you once loved but no longer in love with or doesn't love you anymore? Its already painful going through a divorce. So don't want to make your already painful situation more painful than it already is. Besides holding onto your house can end up costing you more now that the household income has been reduced from two to one.

 

 

Now you before you contact a Washington DC Real Estate Agent that will help you sell your Washington DC Home first thing that I've learned is that if you are getting a divorce,you need a separation and property settlement agreement before you put your Washington DC house up for sale. A separation agreement is an agreement between a husband and wife when they separate from each other. Once signed,it becomes a binding contract between the husband and wife. This separation agreement will resolve such matters as division of property and debts,child custody and support. This agreement is something that you will go discuss with your attorney.

 

 

Once you have done that then we will discuss how we are going to work together as a team to help you get your DC house sold for top dollars so that you can either Buy a home for sale in Washington DC,Maryland and or Virginia. Or refer you to one of my many real estate agent colleagues in the across the country you plan on moving to as you start your new life.
