Many years ago, when my own family was in its infancy, I found myself in the position of being the beneficiary of an old family member’s estate. I felt so lucky. My young family was blessed with a financial helping hand when we were just starting out. It meant we could buy our own house and move out of our apartment. All we had to do was sell my inherited home, and we could start a new chapter in a house of our own.
Selling was the best decision. The house I had inherited was not in the neighborhood that we wanted to live in, and the idea of owning the dream home for the future of our family was much more enticing than trying to exploit an already wonderful financial situation even further. I wanted to sell quickly, and focus the benefits on my young family.
Like most people, my first thought was to sell my inherited home using the traditional listing and advertising methods. At that time I had little understanding of the real estate industry, and so I assumed it wasn’t difficult, and the best way to get the most money out of selling the property.
Planning to Sell My Inherited Home
In the evenings and weekends, I cleverly worked at the puzzle of how to sell my the home for the most money I could get. It became a second hobby to me: learning the finer details of the real estate industry in order to sell for as much money as possible.
The first major problem I discovered: house repairs are time consuming.
After expertly planning how to sell my inherited home, I discovered the extent of what it meant to prepare a house for sale. I took a few tours of the inherited house, making a to-do list of all the jobs which needed to be done. I realized the monumental task ahead of me in preparing the house for sale.
Further planning showed the necessary repairs were going to take months. This not only meant I would have to do part-time DIY jobs in the evenings and weekends, but also deal with the headache of sourcing, managing, and coordinating subcontractors and tradesmen.
The second major problem I discovered: house repairs are expensive.
In order to sell the home, I found myself facing a bill which would push our savings to the limit. I didn’t like it. It felt risky to spend most of my family’s savings on a real estate lottery win, and felt very far away from the dream that we made together when this journey began. I decided to have a rethink, and began to research how to sell my inherited home for a cash offer.
