Divorce Conversations for Women

Oct 1, 2021

In today’s episode, Rhonda is joined by Bridget Potterton. Bridget is a Certified Divorce Real Estate Expert in the state of California. Today they discuss the things you should be considering before selling your home during your divorce. Selling your home could be a tough decision due to various reasons such as emotional attachment, but you must consider everything when making this big decision in your life. 

Bridget reminds today’s listeners to be careful and consider everything in making your decision.  

Here are some of the key points to the discussion that make this a worthy listen:

  1. The key is to take a deep breath and really think through the strategy before you make a decision of whether or not to either buy out a spouse, if that's possible, or whether you need to sell the home.
  2. Take a look at the numbers, options and data to make a good decision, not leaving the emotional part at the door but also not forgetting that there is some logic that goes along with the decision making as well. 
  3. Hire the right people on your journey. It’s not easy to go through a divorce and you need the right professionals along the way. It’s important to have experts that you need which could save you time, money, energy and mistakes. 
  4. The best time to sell is when both parties are getting along.
