The Stress-Free Guide to Selling an Inherited Home (Redfin) – Redfin is a real estate brokerage. It wants to list your house. Still, this piece is well worth reading. There’s some useful tax information that applies regardless of how you sell the property. However, the rest of the article quite accurately describes all the hassles, headaches, and problems you’re going to run into when you use an agent to list your property. As you’re reading, just remember that you avoid nearly all those problems when you sell to Solutions 3D LLC.
Inherited Property: Selling the Family House. This is a good overview of the process of selling an inherited property. (Add this to your resources for selling a loved one’s house.) It’s written by a law firm, so the approach is legalistic (but it’s well-written!). As you’re reading it, remember that some of the problems covered in the article (the risk of the property sitting empty, the likelihood that the house is in a state of disrepair, etc.) can be eliminated or minimized by selling quickly for all cash to Solutions 3D LLC.
Are Profits From an Inherited Home Taxable? This advice comes from the National Association of Realtors, and helps explain some of the tax implications of selling an inherited property. The scenario involves two children who’ve inherited a house, plan to fix it up, and then sell it. As you read it, consider the Solutions 3D alternative: Don’t spend time and money fixing it up, then more time waiting for it to sell. Just sell it quickly in as-is condition for cash.

Father Has Dementia: How Can Daughter Sell His Home to Pay for His Care? The title of this article, written by a lawyer, says it all. Some solid advice, although laws may vary by state. Solutions 3D LLC can’t help you with the legal end of the process (though we can refer you to some lawyers who specialize in elder law in Virginia). On the other hand, once you gain the power to sell the home, we’re there to make you a quick, all cash offer for the property in as-is condition.
