Do you want your inherited house? In this blog post, you’ll read about the 4 no stress tricks for preparing to sell an inherited property in Suffolk so you can sell it easily, with no hassle.
In general, selling a house can be a stressful process, because this is one of the biggest assets for most people. Selling your own house can be a hassle, but selling an inherited property in Suffolk can even be more complicated, because there may be other people/heirs involved and all of you may be living in different cities, or even states!
No Stress Trick #2 Get Yourself Informed
What is the process? What paperwork needs to be done? How will it affect me tax-wise? Many of these questions will be answered by the city/county where you could file the probate, or by a probate attorney. Each case is different and the laws are not the same in each state. Also, you need to talk with all the heirs to the house to decide do you want to keep, rent out, rehab, or just sell the house. Guess which one is the quickest and easiest option? To sell it “as is”.
No Stress Trick #1 Plan Ahead based on your plan
Many people look online and think their house can sell for a million dollars if they rehab it. But, they don’t realize what’s involved. If there are multiple heir, who is going to lead the rehab project. Here is some other questions to consider:
- Who is going to work with contractors to create estimates for all work that is needed? You may need several different contractors – plumbing, kitchen, electrical, drywall, windows, roof, HVAC…
- Who is going to buy the materials?
- Who is going to check with the progress of the work daily?
- Who is going to arrange inspectors, house staging cleaning, cutting grass, switching utilities onto a new name and paying them until the house is sold?
- Who is going to find a trustworthy realtor?
These task can be stressful, especially if there are multiple heirs and you don’t live close by the inherited house.
No Stress Trick #3 Get Consensus
This is one of the trickiest parts. If there are several heirs to the property, everyone must be in total agreement of what to do with the house. This can get overly complicated also when someone has to put money together for a rehab. Then comes the part abut managing the property and rental or rehab process is going on. As you can see, this is no small deal and you must really involve everyone and get full consensus on what to do exactly with the house.
