Finding the right buyer is the key to a smooth selling journey. You can keep marketing to the wrong audience without seeing results. On the contrary, you can advertise among a small group of targetted people, and you’ll sell your house quickly without effort. Most people don’t think that way, and that’s why the selling process takes so much time and effort.
Experienced agents, successful brokerages, and brands employee a different strategy. Work with a professional agent and notice how they set the stage for a successful transaction. From pricing to remodeling, everything is done for the end buyer. They are targetting specific buyers and market only to that segment. The same goes for selling an inherited house, vacant property, or an out-of-state house. You need to find people who are specifically interested in such homes. There is more to the story, but for the moment, let’s stick with that segment.
Price it Right
Your search for the buyer begins with pricing. Price it too low, and you lose potential visitors because of skepticism. Price is too high, and customers wouldn’t want to deal with negotiations or overpriced properties. Consult an expert and expect to price your property 10%-15% below the market value. That’s the sweet spot if you want to attract offers without losing money. With effective marketing, you can receive offers above the asking price.
Qualify the Buyers
Not everyone can purchase an inherited property. A unique solution is needed depending on the circumstances, and the condition of the property. For instance:
- The inherited house might have liens or debts that must be settled before the sale
- The house might require repairs or a full-remodel
- It can be a home with negative equity
- The property can be located out-of-state
- More than one person can inherit a house and not everyone will agree on the sale
- The probate process is complicated for most people
At this stage, you need a buyer who can buy your house even with such issues. Most of the time, inherited homes are not in a good shape. So you can’t work with a buyer who wants the home to be in a top-notch condition. You can’t work with someone who wants the possession immediately as the probate process can take longer than expected. The same is the case with multiple liens or existing mortgages. Most mortgage lenders won’t allow a sale unless debts are cleared first. As you inherit the house, you also have to deal with any pending loans or tax issues. Either you need to pay for the debts or find a buyer who can do that on your behalf.
The ideal goal is to find a buyer who understands your situation and can find you a helping hand. Loved ones have a hard time dealing with inherited homes as you’re facing emotional loss as well as responsibilities.
