How Do I Sell My Inherited House?
Inheriting a home can be a thoughtful gesture from a loved one that recently passed, but it may leave you feeling uncertain as to what you should do next. On top of working through the loss of a family or friend, you’re left to deal with the responsibility of caring for a home. Though this may seem confusing and stressful, there are many options and resources that can help you figure out your next steps.
What happens when you inherit a home?
When you inherit a home, you’ll want to gather all details about who is authorized to do what in reference to the property. If you are looking to sell, you will need to verify you are authorized to do so. By understanding who the executors are for the inheritance, you can then determine what options you have.
Before you sell the home, the entire estate needs to go through probate. If there is a will present, you will be able to petition the courts to sell the property on your own, instead of through the probate courts. Whether you choose to keep the property or sell, you’ll want to verify within the probate process what you are allowed to do. By doing this, you’ll have a clearer understanding of all your options.
Should I sell my inherited property?
If you are authorized to sell your property, deciding whether or not to sell is entirely up to you and your needs. A few things you’ll want to keep in mind when looking to sell are:
- Is there a mortgage on the property?
- Does the property need repairs or cleaning?
- Is there more than one heir for this property?

“I couldn’t have asked for more. I trust her, and you can too”
I’m here today to tell you about my dear friend and business colleague Laurel Sagen. In my church, there was a very tragic situation. The matriarch of a family passed away rather suddenly, and the husband was left with adult children in the house and a young daughter. The house was in a state of disrepair, so bad that there were health and safety issues, there was clutter, socioeconomic problems, they really had no place to go and I needed to bring a buyer in that could put them at ease.I needed somebody that was patient, kind, trustworthy, that I could rely on to get the job done. The only person who came to mind was Laurel. When I introduced her, she really immediately put the seller at ease, he was scared, he was grieving, really didn’t know where he was going to go, and Laurel made him feel more comfortable, came to the house, put him at ease, not only put the seller at ease, but was able to manage the troubling circumstances of the adult child, the additional people that were living in the home, and the young child. I knew I could count on her.When it came time to close the transaction, Laurel and her company actually helped them move, they were patient, if the people needed a little more time, Laurel just facilitated the whole process. I couldn’t have asked for more. I trust her, and you can too. She did what she said she was going to do. She offered them a fair price also. It really put them at ease so I am grateful for her, and I know there were grateful too.”
