How do I sell an inherited property?

When a family member passes away, they often leave a house to their heirs. This can be a stressful time for the family.

The last thing someone wants to do when a loved one passes away is manage a vacant property. The deceased often leaves the house with some deferred maintenance and lots of belongings to go through. Vacant property costs a lot more in insure than owner occupied property and can be an easy target for thieves and vandals. If the heirs decide to sell they might have several questions and may not know where to find answers.

How do I find a buyer?

Do I need to pay a realtor a commission to find a buyer?

What contracts do I need to use to sell my house?

How is title transferred? Do I need to pay an attorney?

Most buyers require a house to be in good condition to consider buying it and in order for the property to be financed. It can be overwhelming to have to manage making repairs and cleaning out the property for sale. The repair process can cost a lot of time and money.

How do I find the right contractor?

How do I know they are honest?

Will they do quality work?

Will they show up on time and complete the work in a timely manner?

Instead of going through all those headaches, it may make more sense to sell to a real estate investor. A real estate investor such as myself can save you the expense of paying a realtor, paying an attorney, paying for and managing repairs, and all the costs of heating, insuring, paying taxes on, and maintaining a vacant property. I can make an as-is offer and buy without any repairs needed to the property.
