Sell Inherited House in Washington DC,
Maryland, or Virginia

Upon the passing of a loved one, there are often many questions left behind when deciding the next steps to take. Answers to these questions are a lot simpler if the estate can be turned into cash quickly. With cash, the family can pay the deceased person’s bills, taxes and expenses. Then the remaining cash can be distributed to other family members, according to the deceased’s wishes.
If the family cannot turn the estate into cash quickly, the burdens will increase.

  • Houses can’t be split up amongst family members until they are sold.
  • Houses can’t be used to pay bills, loans, taxes and other obligations until they are sold.
  • Houses continue to cost money the longer they stay in the possession of the family. Mortgages, taxes, insurance and utilities still have to be paid every month.
  • Houses must be fixed up, cleaned, and marketed with a realtor in order to sell them in the traditional way. The market is not so easy right now
There are a lot of expenses and anxiety associated with putting a house on the market:

  • Realtor commissions will eat up 6% of the sales price ($12,000 on a $200,000 house)
  • Fix up and repair costs can run into the $10’s of thousands and can take months to complete
  • Every month the house does not sell means another mortgage payment, another tax payment and another insurance payment
  • Vacant houses require attention – lawns need cutting, rooms need cleaning, and systems have to be maintained
  • Vacant houses can also attract vandalism, squatters, and other unsavory characters, not to mention complaints from the neighbors
  • Staging costs can be 1-2% of the cost of the house per month

All of these issues become even worse if many of the family members have to deal with them long distance. People are so busy these days, and taking care of a loved one’s house from afar can be very challenging. Especially at such a deeply emotional time.
