Have you inherited a house from a family member? Are you responsible for settling the estate of a loved one so assets can be distributed to the heirs?
Losing a loved one is never easy and can be very stressful on the entire family. Aside from the emotional grief that must be endured there is the task of settling the affairs that were left behind. For most people one of the biggest gifts they leave for their family is the house they have lived in for years. Typically one person, the Executor, is selected to be in charge of handling the legal matters and ensuring the wishes of the deceased are carried out. While it sounds ideal to keep an inherited house in the family, that often is not the best option and sometimes is impossible depending on the desire of the heirs.
Proud Start Real Estate Solution is here to help reduce the stress from settling an estate by allowing you to cross off one of the biggest items on your “to do” list, selling the house. We work with people just like you throughout the Bay Area who have inherited a house and will structure a plan that is fair and easy.
We recently had the opportunity to purchase an inherited home in Vallejo. Here is the story:
We were contacted by the owner, Cathy, through one of our mail pieces. After meeting with her and walking through the house it was clear that she wanted to sell the house and preferred not to go through the traditional sales process of listing with an agent. We were able to agree on a price that was in alignment with what she expected to get and finalized the purchase shortly after.
During our discussions with Cathy we learned that the house had been in the family for many years and she had grown up there, so she had a strong emotional bond. The house had not been updated and was in need of some TLC. After the remodeling was complete we invited Cathy out to see how the house had been revitalized. She was very happy to see what had been done to give her childhood home a second life. Now the house will be home for another family for many years to come.
We were able to help Cathy fulfill her responsibilities in regards to the estate of her mother and the sense of contentment from knowing her house was being updated and taken care of.
The following video was taken with Cathy after we completed the rehab on the house. As you watch keep in mind that we are here to help you if you are in a similar situation.
