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.

“I need to sell a house quickly.”

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.

Is Now the Time To Sell Your Rental Property?

Rental Property: Know When To Sell

Owning a rental property is an investment, and with all investments, you have to pick the right time to sell. There’s a lot of uncertainty out there right now: in the housing market and interest rates, in a looming national recession, in geopolitics of the world. Maybe now is the best time to cash in on your investment. You have been a good landlord, investing time and money into the property.

When you hear yourself say, “I want to sell my rental house now,” it’s time to call UHS.

Upward Home Solutions Will Give You A Fair, Cash Offer For Your Rental

We will come to you, on your schedule. The tenant doesn’t have to know you are thinking about selling. You will be able to recover all the money you have put into the rental property and realize a profit. The time has never been better for cashing out.

Whether you bought the property as an investment or inherited the rental, we have solutions for you.

It’s not easy being a Landlord and owning a Rental Property

  • Repairs can be costly and unexpected. Did you know that the average roof replacement is about $10,000?
  • Owners have to buy property and liability insurance in case the house burns down and to protect you against a lawsuit.
  • Tenants can be a real headache, calling all hours of the night and weekends.
  • Property taxes keep going up.
  • You have to keep records to account for the rental income and expenses. Tax time is complicated.
  • Vacancies create their own set of problems: screening prospective tenants, showings, repairs, and drafting leases.
  • Evictions are a drain on your time and resources.

At Upward Home Solutions, we have a team of people who take care of the rental properties we buy.

We always work with tenants to keep them in their houses.

In fact, most tenants tell us that they are happy to work with our management company because

  • When Upward Home Solutions buys a property, we make repairs and upgrades, listening to the tenant and what makes them comfortable.
  • We have a maintenance guy on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • We have a convenient online portal for residents to submit maintenance requests and pay their rent from a bank account or credit card.
  • Our management company has about 30 properties. This makes us small enough to care but large enough to have staff that can handle questions and emergencies.

Just this week, one of our tenants wrote us an email to say how happy she has been with our management company.

“The apartment was great! Never had any problem with the maintenance or getting problems solved… In the future I definitely would recommend someone wanting to rent from this company.
