Is a Divorce Considered a Hardship?

Hi, I’m Toni Patillo with Toni Patillo and Associates. We are considered to be one of the best Venice short sale agents in the area. We specialize in helping homeowners with distressed properties. As Venice short sale agents, we have experience helping people with short sales, probates, divorce, bankruptcy and other financial situations. Your Venice short sale agent should inform you that if you are considering a short sale, you must have a legitimate hardship in order to qualify.

We have had several homeowners come to us, since we are Venice short sale agents, wondering if a divorce is considered a hardship for a short sale. The good news is yes it is a hardship; the bad news is no one wants to go through the pain and hassle of a divorce. Once you have decided to go through with the divorce, one of your first questions may be who gets the house? You both may be in a situation where neither of you wants it, for whatever reason. This is typically the case because usually people want to move on from the divorce and start over with a new place and new memories. If either of you are thinking about keeping the house, you have to look at all the costs that go into taking care of a house such as maintenance, mortgage, taxes, etc… If you are considering short selling your home and looking for the best Venice short sale agents, please give us a call today. We would love to meet with you about your situation and see what we can do to help. We would also love the opportunity to be your Venice short sale agents and walk you through the entire short sale process if this is what you decide is best for you. Thanks and we look forward to speaking with you soon.
