As with any home, you have the option to sell with a real estate agent. Depending on the home’s location, age, repairs needs, and other factors, as well as your own ability to devote time and effort to the process, selling in this way may be a good option. You could potentially earn more for the home, but keep in mind you will need to pay the real estate agent a commission fee, in addition to other fees and closing costs. If the inherited home is not close to your own home, or you live outside Florida but the inherited home is located here, you will also need to be available for showings, upkeep, and management of any contractors who visit the property.
Selling a home is not a simple task if you take the traditional route. This is true for most everyone — especially if you’ve had the responsibility placed on you out of the blue by inheriting the home. While you may have known you’d inherit the home, it’s extremely difficult, if not impossible, to know exactly when it will happen. If selling an inherited home with a real estate agent isn’t feasible, contact Compass Home Buyers in Tampa to sell you home for cash in as few as five business days
