How to Sell a Relative’s Home After Their Death

Losing a close family member is a painful and difficult time. In addition to the sadness and loss you are feeling, you may be responsible for the person’s estate. Figuring out how to sell a relative’s home following their death may be overwhelming.

While you and other family members have been busy caring for your relative, you may have understandably forgotten to consider what to do with their home. In the case of an unexpected loss, there simply wasn’t time to address the issue at all. Read on to learn about a fast option for selling your inherited property.

Is Selling on the Market the Right Choice?

You and your family are faced with the decision of whether to sell the home or keep it in the family. If the home needs some repairs, finding cash to fix up the home may not be feasible for you. Plus, listing the home for sale with a real estate agent could mean waiting months to receive an offer.

While the home is still in your possession, you’re responsible for all carrying costs and bills necessary to maintain the home. You and your family may be paying two mortgages for months (your own and the one on your loved one’s property) while you wait to receive an offer.

Selling on the MLS may yield the highest offer, but can you afford to wait and carry the costs in the meantime?
