Selling an inherited home isn’t easy. There’s the emotional aspect of getting a loved one’s home ready for sale — which likely includes clearing out his or her belongings and depersonalizing the rooms.
1. Get some advice. Connect with a tax adviser to understand any tax implications of selling the inherited home. Heirs should also check and see if there are any liens on the property.
2. Assess the market. It might be clear that Grandma’s kitchen needs some major upgrading. But before doing any work, contact a real estate agent (or Markette Properties) to help you understand the local housing market.
3. Prepare for listing. Success in selling the home — and for a desirable price — will often depend on its condition and cleaning up the yard, painting the home’s interior and other minimal improvements will go a long way.
4. Expect an emotional process. The process of selling a relative’s home is likely going to be emotional, from the sorting of the personal belongings to the finalization of the sale at the closing table. Expect that.
