How to Sell a House in Norfolk When There are Multiple Owners

When you are part of a group that owns a house, there are complexities that inevitably come up. Sometimes different people will need different things. Things can get a little bit more complicated if the owners live in different states. For example, you may have inherited a house and you are 3 siblings all living in different cities or even states. Moreover, there are some tax implications too that must be realized and discussed. However, this article will explain to you a simple process to follow to make sure you can sell a house in Norfolk when there is shared ownership among multiple owners.

Prepping/Repairs

When you are trying to prep-up a house in Norfolk for rent or sale, there are certain things that need to happen and all of the owners need to be onboard. If the house needs to be cleaned up, someone has to lead the process and hire help, if necessary, or arrange an all-hands-on-deck meeting and work session(s) to do the actual cleaning, which may include a junk removal company service. Also, if the owners agree to fix up the house and then put it up on the market, that would the the most-complicated and longest process, because it will involve getting money together for repairs, project management and dealing with contractors and them choosing and dealing with realtor to list it. On the other hand, sometimes it may make sense to just sell the house as is to an investor buyer like Coastal Edge Homebuyers , so you can sell an unwanted property quick & easy, without any cleaning or repairs! If you already have a busy life somewhere else, this last option is frequently the best, based on our experience with other people in similar situations.

Communication

It’s sometimes easier said than done – good communication. But this is crucial for the least amount of friction during the dealings with a house in Norfolk and all the vested parties. You will need to effectively communicate with everyone, respect each person’s perspective and drive towards a common outcome for the house, whether that is to sell it as is, or to work on fixing it and putting it up on the market, or, renting it out. Having a professional investor-buyer like Coastal Edge Homebuyers will help you ease this process and effectively communicate with the other interested parties. Moreover, we can help you understand what may be the best course of action given the market and the desired of the owners.

Portions

When you are working on cleaning or repairs a house to be fixed up for a rehabbed sale, someone will need to take leadership and track all activities and expenses daily. This will really be like a project management situation. Someone has to agree to be a project Manager and/or a Money Manager. Think about it, if you will be rehabbing the place there will be multiple purchases of materials and labors, and you may need to work with 3 different types of contractors – General Contractors, Electricians, Plumbers. Each may bring others too, so someone has to keep up with all the work, projects, and finances. On top of that, you will need to dedicate a person or several people to also calculate holding costs – the money that needs to be paid for upkeep the house while it is being rehabbed – mortgage, utilities, landscaping, insurance, etc.
