Divorce is undoubtedly tough, but occasionally there is a bit of a silver lining. A two-fold increase – pace of sales and prices – has been seen in the Raleigh-Durham housing market thus far in 2014. A recent report by the Triangle Multiple Listing Service states that sales of homes have increased by 3.4% and prices have increased 4.5% year to date. That’s a welcomed positive note for divorcees in the Triangle. They can expect to sell their home quicker and for a higher price than they would have been able to in the past. It’s one less thing for them to worry about.
