How To Sell Your Inherited Home

If you’ve recently inherited a house you have no use for, the chances are that you probably think it will be a hassle to get the property in good enough shape to sell it for a profit. However, this is not the case. There are legal steps you need to take to ensure that the transaction goes smoothly, and you have no issues when finishing the process. Before you can sell the inherited house, you first have to:

Determine If You Can Sell It

When you inherit a house, there are several legal steps you have to adhere to to ensure you can legally sell the house. If you were left a home in a will from someone you were close to, before you can start the selling process, you have to double-check that in the will, your loved one did not specify that the house had to be sold through a specific real estate agency or a specific person. Though they may have left you the house, they may have different instructions in place if you choose to sell the property they left you. Before you begin making plans about the future of your inherited property, you need to read through the fine print and consulting with a legal expert to determine if you are following the wishes of the person who left you the house.

Go Through Probate

If the person who left you the property has died, you have to go through the probate process. The probate process is the legal way to ensure the person who has passed away no longer has any debts, and their assets are distributed according to their wishes. Essentially, each state has different regulations regarding probate, but they all follow the same general idea. To start, whoever has the will has to file it with the courts as soon as they can. Once the will passes through the probate courts, an executor will be set by the judge who authenticated the will in the initial step. The will’s executor is then put in charge of paying off any debts using the person’s estate before giving the remaining estate materials to the people specified in the will.

Consult With Bill Buys Houses

Once the will of the person who gave you the house has gone through the probate process, you can then begin the selling process. If the house is not in good condition or you simply don’t want to deal with the traditional real estate process, contact Bill Buys Houses today. At Bill Buys Houses, we will schedule a consultation with you to evaluate the home you were left. At this time, we will come to your property to walk through and see what we’re working with. During this walkthrough, we will look for any damages the house has, things that need to be improved, as well as several other factors. Additionally, if we believe you can get a better deal using a traditional realty service, we will tell you upfront and help you start that process.

Get Cash Fast

After our walkthrough, we will create an offer based on the current state of the house. Every offer we give to our customers is fair and competitively priced. The offer takes into account the price of necessary repairs and other important factors, and we will answer any questions you may have about. Once you accept our offer, we will go through the legalities and other necessary steps to ensure the proper transfer of your property to us before finalizing the deal and giving you your cash offer. This process typically takes under one week. To learn more about this process, contact us today.
