People generally dread the thought of selling property, and who can blame them. The process generally involves a lot of formalities, paperwork and can also be stressful. It is often evident that people often would would rather keep their property than sell it. But if you have inherited property and need to sell it, here are some tips to simplify the process.
Selling a house can be frustrating, time-consuming, and even expensive.
And if it’s an inherited house, it can be even worse!
So if you want to sell your inherited property without all the hassle, here are 4 no stress tricks for preparing to sell an inherited property in New Jersey…
No Stress Trick #1 Plan Ahead
Most people who sell a house just decide to sell without thinking through what that looks like.
- Do you have a budget for the ongoing expenses and any repairs needed?
- What if repairs take a long time?
- What if the listing takes a long time?
- What contingencies do you have if the real estate agent can’t find a buyer?
It’s stressful if you have to decide these things as they come up but if you’ve already thought about them, you’ll eliminate a lot of stress.
No Stress Trick #2 Be Informed
Do you know what the process is to sell? Do you know how long it will take? Do you know how much it will cost you? Is it even a good time to sell? Who is buying right now? Do some research ahead of time and ask these questions to get informed about selling.
The more information you have, the better.
No Stress Trick #3 Get Consensus
If multiple heirs own the inherited property, you’ll want to gather your research and then talk to each heir to get a consensus.
Nothing is worse than starting the listing process and trying to sell your property only to be stopped in your tracks by an heir who wants to go in a different direction with the property.
No Stress Trick #4 Work With A House Buyer
Actually, you can skip a lot of the legwork and hassle by selling directly to a house buyer. A house buying company (like what we do here at Segis Group) is the simplest, fastest way to put cash in your pocket because they often buy houses fast, for cash, and in as-is condition… and are experts at dealing with any of the challenges with titles, liens, multiple heirs, etc.
