When the Simple Becomes Complex:

Huettner Capital is a residential and commercial real estate lender. We handle all types of financing and specialize in complex transactions.

These situations typically involve self-employment, multiple properties, wealth management, investment property, relocation, and divorce to name a few. However, most people do not realize how frequently their situation is too complex for the typical lender to handle effectively.

Getting these loans done is not the problem. The problem is the people getting most borrower’s their loans. They simply have far too little knowledge and experience to get anything other than the cookie cutter loan done in less than several months. This is the reason why the traditional loan origination process just doesn’t work any more.

Creating a team and new loan process that works with full documentation loans, especially the complex ones, was the whole point in starting Huettner Capital from the very beginning. Welcome to the solution!

Going through a divorce can be a life-changing experience, especially for stay-at-home moms who may need to rethink their living arrangements and financial strategies.

Our team understands the unique challenges you might face during this time, and we’re here to help you navigate downsizing with ease and confidence.

If you’re a stay-at-home mom looking to downsize after a divorce, you’re not alone. Let our professionals guide you through your options to find a solution that fits your new lifestyle.

Assessing Your Financial Situation

The first step in considering downsizing is to assess your current financial situation. This includes understanding all your income sources, expenses, and any alimony or child support arrangements. Our team can help evaluate your financial standing and determine how much home you can afford post-divorce. This assessment will consider your monthly budget and long-term financial goals, ensuring that you make a sustainable decision.

Choosing the Right Home

When downsizing, it’s crucial to find a home that not only fits your budget but also meets your needs and those of your children. This might mean prioritizing neighborhoods with good schools, access to community resources, or proximity to family and friends. Our experts can assist you in searching for the right property, weighing factors like safety, convenience, and affordability.

Understanding the Benefits of Downsizing

Downsizing can offer numerous benefits:

  • Reduced Costs: Smaller homes typically mean lower mortgage payments, utility costs, and maintenance expenses.
  • Simplified Living: Less space can lead to a simpler, more manageable lifestyle, which can be beneficial during a period of personal change.
  • Increased Cash Flow: Selling a larger home and purchasing a smaller one can free up equity, providing you with additional cash to cover living expenses or invest for future needs.

Navigating the Downsizing Process

Our professionals are skilled in managing the downsizing process. This involves:

  • Selling Your Current Home: We can guide you through the process of preparing your home for sale, marketing it effectively, and negotiating with buyers to get the best possible price.
  • Finding a New Home: We’ll help you find a new home that suits your downsized lifestyle, handling negotiations and closing details to ensure a smooth transition.
  • Financial Planning: We offer tailored advice on managing your finances post-move, from budgeting in your new home to planning for your long-term financial health.

Legal Considerations and Support

It’s important to understand the legal implications of downsizing, especially regarding any divorce agreements relating to property and financial support. While we are not a law firm, we coordinate with legal experts to ensure your downsizing plan aligns with all legal requirements and your divorce decree. This might involve revisiting alimony or child support if your living situation significantly changes.
