What to Do with an Inherited Home
When a person dies, all their assets and property are inherited by their heirs. The result, all the assets enter a status called probate. During probate a lawyer and appointed executor approve all inheritance-related actions. Don’t want your inherited home to enter the lengthy and expensive process probate? Learn how to sell your inherited home fast.
Benefits of Selling Before Probate
There are many reasons to sell a home before it enters probate:
- The estate executor is responsible for the home’s liabilities and insurance. Selling also decreases potential liabilities for the estate.
- Liquidating assets is the easiest and quickest way to split assets among multiple heirs.
- It is expensive to maintain a home during probate. You still need to pay regular utility bills, taxes, and upkeep costs.
- Liquidate the deceased’s largest asset to avoid conflict.
It is difficult to think about the process sale of a home after someone passes. Many individuals choose to write the sale of their property into their will to make this decision easier on their heirs. If the sale of the property works best with your family’s estate planning, the property needs to be sold quickly before it enters probate.
