I inherited a house in California and all of its problems – help me!
Losing loved ones is one of the most difficult things we go through in life. We deal with our own grief and the grief of friends and family members. In the midst of everything, we are expected to make decisions for funeral arrangements and execute the will.
If you’ve inherited a property, you’ve also inherited everything that comes with it. Suddenly you are faced with your own expenses and the expenses of another home. Property taxes, deferred maintenance, and dated décor all become problems you have to deal with. The situation becomes more complicated when more than one party shares an interest in the home. This is often the case with siblings. Everyone’s life is on hold until the property sells.
You could go the traditional route and list with a real estate agent. An agent will want any major repairs completed before listing the property. They may even suggest staging the home. In addition, while the house is on the market, you and any other heirs are responsible for property taxes, utilities, and lawn maintenance. Inspections and appraisals could bring up major repairs that have to be fixed. If you are seeking a faster way out, I would love to make you an offer.
Benefits of Selling Your Inherited Home to Me:

You’ll Be Free From:

The loss of a loved one is always difficult. Make this part as easy as possible.
