Selling your home due to a divorce can be a very difficult time. Naturally, many people want to make the sale run as smoothly and quickly as possible so that the journey towards new beginnings can start.
If you’re selling your home during a divorce and want to know how to sell it quickly, here are Michael J Chapman Estate Agents’s top tips on how to arrange a smooth sale.
1. Keep Communication Open
Keeping communication strong between the two of you couldn’t be more important when selling a home during a divorce – particularly if you want to reassure buyers that the sale will be smooth.
Agree on your priorities together and make sure you’re discussing the finances all the way through. Choosing the right estate agent also helps when selling due to divorce. An agent with expert communication is ideal to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible.
2. Stage it for a Sale
Staging your home in the right way is important. If you want to sell your home quickly during a divorce, dressing it to appeal to buyers is a great way to build interest and make it more attractive.
While you don’t need to do major renovation work before selling, making small décor changes or simply decluttering can make a big difference.

3. Clear it Out Early
Clearing out a property is often one of the most time-consuming tasks when it comes to selling your home. If you want to sell it quickly, clearing out early is a good idea.
Stripping out everything isn’t necessary when selling (especially if one of you is still living in the property). But clearing it can help the sale progress quicker and it can look good to buyers if they know that you’ve already discussed what’s being kept and what isn’t.
4. Consider Your Buyers
When selling your home due to a divorce, consider what reassurance your buyers may need if they find out you’re selling due to a divorce. Their biggest concern may be that the communication isn’t good between the two of you and it may cause issues or delays.
When discussing the sale with buyers, you don’t need to mention the divorce immediately. If they ask, tell them but make it clear to buyers that you are dealing with the divorce amicably. Reassure them of any concerns they may have around how it could impact the sale.
5. Choose the Right Estate Agent
Working with the right estate agent is always important when you’re selling your home. Often, your home is your biggest asset, so you want to ensure the agent you are working with is someone you can trust.
When you’re selling your home during a divorce, having the right estate agent on your team is even more critical to achieving a stress-free sale. Make sure you choose an estate agent that understands any sensitivities and is an expert at communicating to keep you both in the loop.
