Frequently Asked Questions

What if I already know I want to sell the house?

Although selling a house seems straightforward or even if you already have an agent, you should still consider consulting us. For one, we provide unique perspectives on home decisions during divorce. Our handpicked partners are trained to understand the intricacies of divorce-related real estate needs. We’re here to add value, regardless of your choice of partners.

We also look at the sale of the house through a personal lens to figure out whats best for your family and connect you with the right partner to do so.

Depending on our partner you sell your home with you could save $10k+ through the process.

Are the real estate strategy consultations offered by Hello Divorce free?

Yes. We offer this real estate strategy service at no cost to you. Our goal is to guide you towards the best decision for you and your family, whether that's selling your home or keeping it. Divorce can change needs, and we're here to support you through that. We'll connect you with specialized real estate partners based on your interests. If you decide to proceed with one of our partners, Hello Divorce receives a referral commission upon closing.

Are there hidden costs?

No, there are no hidden costs! When you buy, sell or use a partner to split your home through our program, the partner companies either split their commission with us or pay us a fee at closing. This commission split is a common practice in the real estate industry and is used to increase business for the brokers and real estate partners.

Are there any real estate services from Hello Divorce that have an upfront cost?

Indeed, while many of our services are complimentary, we do have certain offerings that come with a fee to best serve your specific needs:

What sets you apart from a typical real estate firm?

Hello Divorce isn't your typical real estate entity. We're dedicated to simplifying the divorce process—making it friendlier, affordable, and efficient. We don’t push any hidden agendas or inventories. Our priority? You and your family. We present all options and their pros and cons, tailored to your unique needs. We're not here to sell homes. We're strategists within a divorce company, ensuring your best interests are always at the forefront. We believe knowledge empowers, and we aim to equip you with insights you might not have considered.

Do you employ your own real estate agents?

No, we've chosen a path of complete neutrality. This allows us to offer unbiased advice, free from any conflicts of interest.

How does Hello Divorce operate without charging clients?

Our business model is partnership-driven. While ensuring you receive fair market prices, our partners share a portion of their commissions with us after successful transactions. This doesn't affect your costs. We've reinvented how divorce functions in the real estate context, providing you with expertise specific to your situation.

I’m involved with a work-related relocation package. How does that fit in?

Just inform your relocation company about your preference for Hello Divorce's partners. Then let us know who they are, and we'll ensure all your benefits are utilized.

Why do appraisals, AVMs, and CMAs have different values?

  • Appraisals reflect current or past values, relying on recent comparable sales.
  • AVMs (Automated Valuation Models) use algorithms and diverse datasets for valuations. They’re typically computer-driven and can be viewed as directionally accurate.
  • CMAs (Comparative Market Analysis) are created by real estate professionals, suggesting a listing price based on local market conditions and your home's unique features.

All are valuable, but none as accurate as an actual sale. Lenders typically rely on appraisals or AVMs more than CMAs, especially as AVM accuracy continues to improve.
