What to expect when you inherit a house in CT

Inheriting a house in CT is a multi-layered package! Not only is the family dealing with the death of a loved one; now they are responsible for figuring out exactly what to do with the house itself. Do you rent it? Sell it? Clean it out? Fix it up? As much as you may be tempted to keep an inherited house, sometimes it may be in your best interest to consider putting it up for sale. While selling an inherited house that is not in the best “resale” condition could be demanding, it’s surely not impossible! Selling it in the “as-is” condition to a local home buying company, might be the most convenient option.

 

Expect emotions & money!

The first thing you should think about when dealing with an inherited house is all the emotion that comes along with it. Selling a house under ‘normal circumstances’ can be stressful enough, now add in the removal of your deceased loved ones’ belongings and other personal things. On top of that, when our emotions get carried away, we often don’t make the best financial decisions. During times like this is when you need people with experience buying and selling probate homes in Connecticut to walk you calmly through the whole process.

Another important factor to keep in mind while inheriting a house in CT are the financial burdens. Often times we are left with liens and unpaid mortgages. Even if you are lucky enough to have inherited a paid off home, there are still unwanted expenses to owning or even trying to sell the house. Moving costs, painting and general “tidying up” of the property to prepare for sale has the potential to add up quickly. Unless you are a professional in the field, the process can be tiring and daunting.
