Keep the House for all the Right Reasons – By Preventing Permanent Mistakes in Divorce/Elder Family Mediation
June 15, 2020 – The family home is usually the most significant asset in divorce and elder mediation, often with significant debt. However, appraisal minus mortgage does NOT equal actual equity. This incomplete equation leaves your house over-valued and that works against you in family mediation for divorce and elder matters.
Don’t settle for a bad property settlement. In addition to the inaccurate and unfair division of your property, you risk damaged credit, default, foreclosure or even bankruptcy.
Remember all those documents you signed when you bought the house? Most are missing when mediating that same house. We provide free help to gather the house documents you need to make an informed decision regarding actual equity and whether to keep the house.
To keep your house for all the right reasons, you need a real estate agent specializing in divorce – an RCS-DTM designee.
