How do you sell an inherited home?
It's usually meant as a blessing when a family member leaves you an inherited home. With the gift comes additional responsibilities. Here are some things that you will mean to take into consideration. Additionally karma if you have siblings or perhaps there were other family members living in the property what are their plans? Sometimes we've seen that events in other family members lives can complicate the situation.
- Mortgage Payments
- Home Owners Dues
- Insurance Premiums
- Estate Settlement Fees
- Property Taxes
- Upkeep on the property
- Costs associated with updating
This may not be a big deal now but if you are in a state that is not local it's definitely something to take into consideration.
How do you legally sell an inheritted home?
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 has to take place and there are many specifics that have to be accounted for to ensure that it is done correctly. If it is done incorrectly if you try it the do-it-yourself way it will definitely cost you more in the long run. Have you ever purchased something that you know was the cheapest route to go but then realized shortly after it broke that perhaps you should have purchase one that was better quality? Getting the estate settled correctly it's 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 you selling the property but it will increase your costs in the long run as you still need to upkeep the property and pay all associated fees that you are now responsible for.
Depending on the situation, this can run into the 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 property.
Selling with a Real Estate Agent
The first thing people usually consider is listing it with a real state 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 a A+ track record. Don't forget to keep in mind the costs associated with updating landscaping, repairing any necessary items, and anything else that is 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 run into the 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 property.

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 they are rated by the Better Business Bureau. Even some of the 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?
Recently, many inexperienced "investors" have shown up in our local real estate market. They attended a weekend seminar or watched some videos online that have shown them 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 in the lurch.
Whether it’s an internet buyer who suddenly lowers your offer or an under-funded buyer who cancels your sale, whatever situation that has made you want to sell your house has probably only gotten worse. All because of someone who didn’t turn out to be a trustworthy buyer.
I received a ton of mail after my Mom passed away. This was the first and only phone call I made. I felt so comfortable with them that I did not feel the need to look anywhere else.
I called several cash home buying companies and they all wanted to give me low ball offers.
What I liked most about FL Real Estate Buyers is that they laid out several options
for me - including ones that did them no benefit!! These guys were EXCELLENT to work with.
I had a feeling the whole time that they truly care about helping and wanted my best interest.
At least hear what they have to say because they will not pressure you into anything.
What I liked about working with Gabe and Eitan is that they were upfront and honest about
whether or not my house was one they wanted to buy. I never felt pressured and they actually
offered a lot more than what my bottom dollar sales price was. I didn't feel like they were
trying to take advantage of me. Communication was great and we spoke regularly. They did everything
they said they were going to do.
We were in a bind. We were lucky enough to meet you guys. It was a mutually acceptable agreement
between the two parties. It was done quickly, legally, fairly, and judiciously. We got to keep our
house which was the most important thing. It cost us some money, but it was worth us staying in our
house. I didn't know them from Adam so there was a trust factor which had to be overcome.
But after meeting you guys we quickly knew you were honest and ethical.
FL Real Estate Buyers were fantastic to work with. I had a very complicated situation with my Mom's condo.
Many companies were making promises and I did not know who to trust exactly. After having a short
conversation with the buying specialist, I felt that what he said made sense and took the leap of faith in trusting him.
I'M GLAD I DID!! FL Real Estate Buyers helped me so much and did everything they said they would do. Thank you
guys and keep helping people!!
