Hey guys, Yussef here from Speedy House Offers. A question I get asked a lot is if a family member passes away and there’s a house that’s left behind in an estate or in probate, what you can do to sell the house, if anything? The short answer is yes, you can sell the house, of course. The long answer is sometimes there are documents that need to be produced like wills or trust and which case the person selling the house or the one that’s deemed to be the executor of the estate can kind of control the direction of how that house is handled. As far as getting everyone together that needs to sign and communicating with everyone on what the intentions are and to get everyone on the same page. Now, something that recently happened to us, and I’m going to keep this short, is a family member passed away and several years had transpired since the two rightful heirs had even been to the property.
They had no interest in the property. Actually, they thought because so many back taxes were owed on the property, that the state or the city or the county had taken the property. Well, low and behold, we were interested in a property, so we did all the research and we found out that they were still the owners of the property. We were able to get with our attorneys who specialize in estate sales and probate properties and we were able to navigate through everything. Now, I won’t go into all of the details because some of that stuff is legal jargon and I’m sure you’re not here for that, but needless to say that, that’s one of the things that we specialize in is teaming up with experts like our attorneys to navigate and figure out how a property can be sold in an estate, if it’s possible at all.
If you have an inherited property or a property that’s in an estate that you’re looking to sell, give us a call. We’ll be happy to answer questions, if we can answer them. And to guide you in the right direction and make you a cash offer if that’s something that you’re interested in. I’m Yussef with Speedy House Offers and I look forward to speaking with you soon. Take care.
