How to Sell an Inherited House in Florida
“I inherited a house — now what?”
If you inherit a home in Florida, you can either sell the house or rent it out, assuming, of course, that there are no co-owner family members or a mortgage that can delay or complicate things.
Whatever the situation, any delays in decision-making can cost you money as title issues can hold up the property sale. If there are tenants in the property with management issues, there can be additional headaches, too.
But to simplify this topic, let’s assume that your situation is a plain and straightforward one: your last living parent passed away and left you a house in Florida. Now, you’ve decided to sell it, but you don’t know how and where to start.
Normally, the next step would be probate, whether your parent named you in a will or died intestate (without a will). Your question at this stage might be whether you can sell your inherited property during probate.
Our quick answer: No, you can’t. But you can get the process moving along before the probate process is over.
What to Do When There’s More Than One Heir
If there are several heirs to the property, you can decide together and appoint one of you to act as your agent through a power of attorney (POA). Your agent can represent your interests as a group in negotiating the property sale even before probate is completed.
Whether you decide to sell your property for cash to us or another buyer, it’s important to inform the buyer that it cannot be sold before probate. This means the buyer must be willing to wait to take possession of the property only after probate proceedings are over.
But by negotiating the sale of your property beforehand, either directly as the sole heir or through an agent if there are several heirs, you can sell your home right away after probate. Doing so can drastically shorten the time it takes to sell your house.
And if you choose to negotiate with us, there’s no need for you to schedule repairs or facilitate the removal of unwanted possessions. In fact, we can take care of that for you at no additional cost.
