How to Avoid Costly Housing Mistakes in the Midst of a Divorce
Divorce is a tough situation that opens up many emotional and financial issues to be solved. One of the most important decisions is what to do about the house.
In the midst of the heavy emotional and financial turmoil, what you need most is some non-emotional, straightforward, specific answers. Once you know how a divorce affects your home, your mortgage, and taxes, critical decisions are easier. Neutral, third-party information can help you make logical, rather than emotional decisions.
Probably the first decision is whether you want to continue living in the house. Will the familiar surroundings bring you comfort and emotional security, or unpleasant memories? Do you want to minimize change by staying where you are, or selling your home and moving to a new place that offers a new start?
Only you can answer these questions, but there will almost certainly be some financial repercussions to your decision process. What can you afford? Can you manage the old house on your new budget? Is refinancing possible? Or is it better to sell and buy? How much house can you buy on your new budget? The purpose of this report is to help you ask the right questions so you can make informed decisions that will be right for your situation.
You have 4 basic housing options when in the midst of a divorce:
- Sell the house now and divide up the proceeds.
- Buy out your spouse.
- Have your spouse buy you out.
- Retain your ownership.
It’s important for you to understand the financial implications of each of these scenarios.
