- Real estate is usually someone’s biggest asset, and it becomes a challenge to settle a divorce when it is involved. There’s something about real estate that makes it different from other assets.
- When doing the financial splitting during the divorce process, it’s important that you take a bird’s eye view and do a financial analysis instead of just saying you want to find a way for everyone to get an equal amount.
- With real estate involved in a divorce, you should have a team of experts weighing in to contribute from their respective lenses; with a combination of essential, different perspectives, you can arrive at the best possible solution.
- Approaching the issue of real estate from a completely objective standpoint makes the process run more smoothly. Rather than focusing on comfort, a practical mindset is necessary to make a decision that will best set you up for the future.
