I Have Inherited A House. Now What?

I have inherited a home. Now what?

Perhaps you inherited the property as a gift from a family member. Or maybe the home was left to you in a will. If you have recently lost a family member, I am sorry for your loss. Be kind to yourself during this transition, and know that there are many resources that can help you as you grieve and sort through your loved one’s possessions. You are not alone and we at Upward Home Solutions are here to help when you are ready to take the next step.

There are many reasons to sell an inherited home.

  • You live in another state.
  • You already have a place to live.
  • It’s too much to keep up.
  • The expenses of property insurance and taxes are a drain on your finances.
  • The house has bad memories.
  • It’s not in a location that you like.
  • You don’t want to be a landlord.
  • You don’t have the money or time to fix it up and sell it yourself.

In all of the above cases, it’s best to sell before the home falls into disrepair or is vandalized.

First Steps

Make an assessment of everything that is currently in the home. Check with other family members before you sell or dispose of personal items.

Consider holding an estate sale, yard sale, or auction to get rid of the household items.

Keep in mind that Upward Home Solutions will buy the home even if it is not completely cleaned out. If there is nothing of value, we will clean the house out after we buy it, so don’t worry if you can’t get to everything.

Wait for the estate to clear the probate process. If you have questions about how to do this, please consult a lawyer.

Be sure to communicate your intentions with other family members. Inheriting a house can be emotional. If you have any questions about transferring ownership or tax implications, seek professional advice.

You do NOT need to hire a real estate agent. We will help you with every step in the sales process.

If you receive phone calls, mailings, or other unsolicited contacts from people who want to buy the property, be aware of red flags. Not everyone is as honest as Upward Home Solutions.
