Legal issues

Why can selling an inherited property be difficult?

Legal issues

Why can selling an inherited property be difficult?

Inheriting a property can come with legal and tax implications that need to be understood and addressed before selling. These might include estate taxes, capital gains taxes, probate processes and understanding the property’s basis for tax purposes. With countless years helping homeowners sell inherited properties, Bettermove can provide guidance on how to proceed with a sale and navigate the legal elements. This extends to help with paperwork, including titles, deeds, contracts and disclosures. We ensure that all the necessary documentation is in order, taking this often time-consuming and complex part of an inherited property sale off your plate.

Decision making

Multiple owners

Decision making

Multiple owners

It is not uncommon for inherited properties to be owned by multiple beneficiaries. As long as all parties are in agreement to sell, Bettermove can facilitate this. We know that coordinating decisions and reaching a consensus on selling, pricing and other aspects can be complicated, especially if the beneficiaries have different opinions or financial needs. We are able to provide guidance and expert knowledge to help with this decision making if required.

We understand that inherited properties often have sentimental value due to their connection to the previous owner, who may have been a family member or loved one. The emotional attachment to the property can make the selling process more challenging, as it might feel like letting go of a part of the family history. Bettermove are aware of this and our team remain understanding and empathetic in these circumstances.

Make your move better

How we compare

The old way
Estate Agent visits your home
You enquire with several different Estate Agents and wait days or weeks for them to show. The agent is more focused on winning your business from a competitor agent than what your actual needs are.
The property takes ages to be listed
Let’s face it, nobody wants to sit around waiting for weeks for your property to be listed. This does not need to be a slow, drawn out process.
Sit around waiting for enquiries
Traditional Estate Agents may wait around for buyers to make contact or pop into the branch. Your sale depends on any potential buyers getting in touch.
Reduce the asking price
Generally speaking, reducing the asking price is the first thing you are told if the property is not getting any interest. This is a lazy way of doing things, and is another way of saying ‘we were wrong about the value’.
The better way
Proactive approach
We discuss with you your requirements for price and timescales and set out a pricing strategy that meets those requirements. This is done within minutes of you contacting us.
24 hours later
In less than 24 hours we will either make you a formal cash offer or agree a fixed sum that we will offer it to our panel of cash investors for. The speed of which you need completion will determine the best approach.
Huge buyer network
If you don’t accept our cash offer then our team will proactively match your property against our extensive database of cash buyers, professional investors and pre-approved buyers to find a matching buyer within the quickest timescale.
We set your price right from day 1
We don’t want to give you an unachievable price. We would rather be open and honest from the start and set a realistic price to get your property sold without delay. That’s why we are an awarding winning agency.
