You’ve Inherited a Home - Now What?

As someone who has recently inherited a home, it’s likely you are experiencing overwhelm.

You may not have expected this to happen, and even if you did, the burden of suddenly needing to manage another property is something most people aren’t equipped to handle easily.

We also find that most of the time, when someone inherits a property, it’s not in the best condition to sell immediately.

Often older inherited homes are in rough condition, and they may need a lot of fixing up work done. We’ve also helped people who’ve inherited a house only to discover there are back taxes owed, possibly a mortgage in foreclosure, possiblysquatters living in the property for free (see our article on squatters rights Here) and possibly a fraudulent deed.

And while there can be many challenges on your plate …

What matters right now is figuring out YOUR next best step.

That’s why I’ve created this Free Report titled “What Should I Do Now That I’ve Inherited a Property.”

This way, you can clearly understand the options available to you AND how you can choose from those options to get what you most desire out of your situation.

All you need to do is fill out the simple form on this page, and I’ll email you a PDF of this Free Report right away. I’ll send it to you by mail too if you’d like.

Then if you have any questions, you’ll also be able to find my contact information in that report.

I hope this helps you figure out the next best step for YOU and others involved with this inherited home.

How do you sell an inherited home?

When a family member leaves you a home after they pass, it’s usually considered a gift and a blessing.
However, with this extremely generous gift comes additional responsibilities.

While you’ve likely not considered the complications associated with your new inherited property, Florida inheritance laws can wreak havoc on the selling process.

What’s more, selling an inherited home in Florida can also come with emotional ramifications you may have not foreseen.

If you have siblings or other family members living on the property, what are their plans?
Unfortunately, we’ve occasionally seen other family members grow combative when talk of a for sale sign arises.

To help you navigate the red tape of the sale of your inherited home, we break down seven considerations you must make before selling an inherited home in Florida.

These include:

  • Mortgage Payments
  • Home Owners Dues
  • Insurance Premiums
  • Estate Settlement Fees
  • Property Taxes
  • Upkeep on the property
  • Costs associated with updating
While these seven items may not feel like a big deal at the moment, managing selling an inherited home in Florida from out-of-state can become complicated.

How do you legally manage selling an inherited home in Florida?

Even if you know you are the rightful heir to the property, there is a legal process that has to occur in order to legally transfer ownership.

The State of Florida is very specific on how that process must take place. Many specifics must be accounted for to ensure it is done correctly.
If it is done incorrectly, you could lose your inherited home before even getting it transferred into your name.

Have you ever purchased something that you knew was the cheapest option but then realized shortly after it broke that perhaps you should have purchased one that was better quality?

Getting the estate settled correctly is similar to this type of situation. If you try to do it yourself and mess it up, it will all have to be done again. Not only will this prolong the time frame for selling an inherited home in Florida, but it will also increase your costs in the long run as you still need to upkeep the property and pay all associated fees for which you are now responsible.

This can run into thousands of dollars in fees depending on the situation. Even if you’re 100% sure you do not want to sell the property as-is, feel free to reach out to us for our guide on selling an inherited property.

Selling an Inherited Home in Florida with a Real Estate Agent

The first thing people usually consider is listing their inherited home with a real estate agent. This is sometimes a great idea. In a hot market, the home or vacant land could sell fairly easily. Keep in mind, though, it will only sell as well as it is marketed. Check your reviews on your realtor to ensure they have an A+ track record.

Don’t forget to consider the costs associated with updating landscaping, repairing any necessary items, and anything else needed to get the property ready for sale. Additionally, you will have the costs associated with settling the estate. Depending on the situation, this can incur thousands of dollars in fees if it’s complicated. Even if you’re 100% sure you do not want to sell the property as-is, feel free to reach out to us for our guide on selling an inherited home in Florida.

Other Cash Buyers

There is always more than one way to accomplish a goal and working with us may NOT be the option you want to take. The best way is what works best for YOU!

There are many things to consider when selling such a valuable asset as a piece of property.
First, Google the person or company. Check to see if the Better Business Bureau rates them. Even some nationwide home buyers do not have a Better Business Bureau rating and perhaps you’d like to ask yourself why that is? If the company is a franchise, they are only as good as the franchise owner. The marketing, fancy website, and brochures, are all designed by professional marketers. When it comes down to brass tacks, do you trust them?

Many inexperienced “investors” have recently appeared in our local real estate market. They attended a weekend seminar or watched videos online sharing tips and tricks to make some extra money. Cash buyers who have just started in the business may be desperately trying to find financing after they make you an offer, and financing can be very hard to get. Often, they make a series of excuses to put off the closing and finally walk away if they never get financing, leaving you with nothing.

Whether it’s an internet buyer who suddenly lowers your offer or an under-funded buyer who cancels your sale, whatever situation has made you want to sell your house has probably only gotten worse because of someone who didn’t turn out to be a trustworthy buyer.
