You’ve Just Inherited A House in Gainesville, What Now?

Table of Contents

Losing a family member is a hard thing for anyone to go through. However, you may inherit something that your deceased family member left behind for you (by way of a will or a written document). But what if you inherited a house that once belonged to them? There may be several ways that you can be able to take care of the house and the property that goes along with it. Grid Home Buyers understands that a home can be just as important to you as the next person. 


Now that the house is under your name, there are a few things you can do with it. Here are some possible suggestions you might want to consider:


Use it as an “asset”: If you are looking to generate a bit more income, you may want to consider renting out the house to a tenant. You may want to set the rent price to the desired amount. However, being a landlord does come with its financial implications. So if you plan on going down this road, do so at your own risk. 


Gift it to a family member: While you might not plan on living in the house yourself, someone else in your family might be interested. If you have a child who is old enough to own a home and know that they are reliable enough to keep it in good hands, you can give it to them. But keep in mind your name is still on the deed and you may add them later on. Remember, you still need to pay any property taxes if need be. 


Sell it outright: If the last two suggestions are not what you want to do, then you can sell it outright. That’s where Grid Home Buyers comes in. We buy inherited houses in Gainesville regardless of the condition that it’s in. So you don’t have to worry about getting repairs done or anything like that. Plus, you can rack up a good amount of cash just by taking a house off of your hands. Sure, it belonged to someone important and you may have sentimental value. But odds are, that family member who has passed probably would not want you to feel burdened.
