We get it. While you’re grateful to be on the person’s will, inheriting a house in Charlotte comes with a lot of unexpected responsibilities. For example, you’ll now be responsible for taxes, insurance, and any leftover debt.
Fortunately, at Bright Haven Properties, we’ve worked with a lot of people in the same situation.
And here are your options to consider.
If the home is in good condition and you like the area, then you might consider moving in. Obviously, this won’t work if you have obligations elsewhere, but it’s certainly an option for people who don’t have deep roots in the place they’re already living.
Rent the property
If you don’t want to live in the home but you also don’t want to sell it, then you might consider renting out the property. The biggest obstacle here will be finding tenants that you can trust to respect the home. If you have a lot of emotional connection to the home, then putting it in the hands of tenants might not be a good idea.
List with an agent to sell
If the home is in excellent condition and you’re willing to repair what’s broken and update what’s outdated, then you might consider selling the home the traditional way, with a real estate agent. But that probably won’t work if the home isn’t in pristine condition.
Sell to a Professional Homebuyer
Since you probably have a lot of equity on the home and it also has a lot of sentimental value (making it hard to rent out), you might consider selling to a professional home buyer like ourselves at Bright Haven Properties — we can close in just two weeks and buy your home for cash as-is.
