Inheriting a property is never an easy event, having to deal with the loss of a loved one, the legal complications, and more. It can be made even more uneasy if the home that you inherit isn’t ready for the market should you want to sell. Selling an inherited home in need of repairs doesn’t have to be a nightmare.
Jake and his brother had recently lost their mom and inherited her home in the Village of Owen Brown in Columbia, MD. Unfortunately for them, the home was in bad shape.
The mom had never drawn up a will.
She was a heavy smoker, and came down with lung cancer. However, she never drew up a will or informed her sons until two weeks before her passing. Because she hadn’t left a will, her kids had to open probate. Jake ended up being appointed executor of the state, and completely handled the probate.
Once the house was in Jake and his brother’s control, they realized that neither of them had the time or money required to fix up the house and deal with the process of hiring a realtor and listing the property on the market.
They shopped around for other options to sell their inherited home in need of repairs.
After some searching, they came across the Express Homebuyers site and filled out the contact form. A representative gave them a call almost immediately, and just seven minutes later they had an offer for their inherited home in need of repairs.
Once they had confirmed that they wanted to move forward with the deal, we conducted our home inspection and found that nearly everything needed to be replaced, and the house smelled badly of smoke.
We happily take care of repairs, as well as legal proceedings for the inherited home in need of repairs.
Jake and his brother were worried that the state of the house would affect the sale, but Express Homebuyers will buy houses in nearly any state and take care of the repair costs.
It’s also worth noting that while Jake handled the entire probate situation, he didn’t need to do so. Express Homebuyers has a top-notch legal team that can handle the proceedings involve in inheriting a home – at the expense of our own time and money. All told, we had bought the house less than one month from being first contacted. If they had listed the home, it could have been months before they even received an offer.
No matter the situation, we have the capacity to help.
