How To Sell An Inherited Home

Through unfortunate circumstances you may find yourself in the possession of a home by inheritance. It may be that you already own a home and don’t want to change houses or that you live in another area and selling the inherited house is a better option for you. Whatever the reason for wanting to sell the inherited home you will want to make sure that the home sells quickly and properly so that you are not stuck paying expenses on the home.

Inherited Home Ownership

Upon passing of a relative who previously owned the home a process called Probate is normally started. With Probate the relative’s will is filed with a probate court where a probate judge will review and determine if the will is indeed from your relative and was properly signed to make it valid. If there are any disputes as to the will from those who would inherit from the will those disputes will be handled by the probate judge in court.

In certain states probate can be completely avoided with respect to real estate by use of a Transfer Upon Death deed.  Not every state offers a Transfer Upon Death deed and that type of transfer document needs to be signed before the real estate owners death.  The Transfer Upon Death deed allows the property to go directly to whomever the current owner wants it to go and completely skips the probate process.  Consult with a local attorney to see if this option is available for you.

If there are no disputes with regards to the will’s authenticity the probate judge will then begin the process of transferring assets from ownership of your deceased relative to those who...

After all you can get great deals at your local big box store and save money rather than spending it on a more expensive version. While you can get a better deal at a big box discount store the question remains will you get a better value? The same applies with a traditional real estate brokerage versus a discount brokerage, you may be getting a better deal up front by saving on the commission but what is the long term cost to you in terms of your home selling price and help in getting to the closing table?

What a Discount Brokerage Can Provide

Discount brokerages vary in their business models. Some will offer more service for a slightly reduced commission, whereas others offer you nothing other than listing your home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) with a flat fee or large discount on commission. The amount of services they provide will also vary based on the business model those brokerages choose to follow.

Be on the lookout for any of these discount or deep discount brokerages that cut the commission paid to the buyer’s agent. In all fairness the buying and the selling agents should be getting an even 50/50 split commission. Discount brokerages that cut the buyer commission while keeping their own commission high are only hurting you as the home seller in the long run since there...
