PROVIDING QUALITY INVESTMENT OPTIONS
in Baltimore and Surrounding Areas
Whether you inherited a house through a will, or if you were named the executor in the will, many people in Baltimore and the surrounding areas are curious about whether or not they can sell the house, and how.
In many cases, the new owner of the house doesn’t need a second home, and so they look for options to sell it. But first, the home must go through a probate process.
Probate is the process by which a will is “proved” in court and is accepted as a legal document. A judge will grant probate (make the document legal), name the executor of the will, and the executor of the will disperses the contents, or assets, such as a house, to the appropriate people.
If a home was included in the will, the probate process needs to be completed before the house can be sold on the market. This law was put in place to protect the wishes of the deceased and to ensure that the home isn’t sold before it is willed to someone who may want to keep it.
If you inherited a home and try to sell it before going through the probate process, real estate agents will legally not be able to. There are some exceptions to the probate process in the state of Maryland; however, it is best to contact a probate lawyer who has experience with this specific situation.
After the probate process is completed, you can now sell the house. If you want to avoid costly realtor fees and commissions, many residents of Maryland are choosing investment companies. When choosing to sell your house to an investment company, you don’t need to worry about making any repairs and you are able to sell your house faster than the traditional real estate market route — often within 24 hours!
