How's everything going? I believe it is the case if both are your names are on the mortgage.

Get an attorney and may I suggest a savvy accountant before you anything...
On a primary residence ownership is granted to the spouse as it's the Marital residence the answer is yes you need your spouses consent to sell that home.
Regarding the second home & the investment property if the spouse is not on the deed or the mortgage then the answer is NO you don't need your spouses consent to sell.
Again you should check with an attorney or possibly even a title company Tony. Good Luck!
You really need to speak to an attorney. Realtors must get the signatures of the legal owners of the home to sign the contracts. There is a chance that you might be able to sell the house without the spouses signature if the title and deed are in your name but your assets are joined by law.
Speak to an attorney.
When listing a property all legal owners must sign the listing agreement when placing a property up for sale in order for it to be a valid listing. If for example, a spouse or co owner was not able to sign , the other party would need a power of attorney to sign on behalf of the other person.A power of attorney agreement can be arranged through an attorney. Consent to sell properties you personally own although you are married is a totally different issue. You should consult with an attorney to make sure you do the right thing & avoid problems later. When you are ready, if you need assistance selling your properties,please feel free to contact me.

Although we realtors are somewhat versed in the matter you bring up, I don't think most of my colleagues would venture a response to your inquiry. I suggest you contact your attorney. Should you need assistance in determining the value for any of your properties, or staging your home, etc., feel free to contact me.
Good luck in this matter!
