A Windfall Or A Headache ~ Inheriting A House!

Real Estate Agent with Charles Rutenberg Realty 255 Executive Dr, Plainview NY 11803


A Windfall Or A Headache ~ Inheriting A House!
Larry And Sheila are Realtors who deal in many sales in 55 and over communities on The North Shore Of Long Island, and many times it's through an Estate where children want the financial gains from sales. This is true in single family residential homes that we deal with also in Nassau And Suffolk County New YorkLong Island Real Estate
Larry & Sheila understand the situation of A Windfall or a Headache ~ Inheriting a House and how it is emotionally charged. Baby boomers and beyond are aging, and with that comes the natural progression.
Estate sales can be challenging, emotional and difficult and families on The North Shore of Long Island, and all over the country may face difficult decisions. Sometimes, the more siblings there are, the harder the task becomes and the occasional friction it can cause. It's important to remember that emotions run high, and there are times that not all siblings are ready to see the family "home" sold.
You may not be prepared for inheriting your parents house. Should you sell the house, rent the house, or live in it yourself?
Because of taxes, heating, insurance, landscaping and in the case of a Condo there are monthly common charges that incur, most of the time the residence is put on the market for sale. Larry And Sheila realize that cleaning out the family home or condo, memories growing up, assorting over paperwork, sentiment and history, make this a difficult decision and chore.
With all of the decisions that need to be made on a wide variety of issues, it is important that all heirs be in communication with each other and that all are in agreement regarding what to do with the property. This is not legal advice, just what we have noticed in these type of situations. However, first and foremost do consult with an attorney and tax professional before posting a For Sale sign on the lawn. It might be best to wait before putting the house on the market. ~ remember the tax man cometh!
Selling a house can be an overwhelming process, and selling a family members property may even be more stressful. 
  • You may not be living in the same area
  • You might be concerned about making mistakes
  • You may be get poor information during the transaction

Belinda, Inheriting a house that siblings grew up in is a challenge...so many emotions!

Don, Yes this may be true and that's why our first suggestion is to speak with an attorney and tax professional...

Lary and Sheila, my sister was the trustee for my parent's house...but, we still had a problem with a few of the siblings....there were 11 siblings at the time.  It worked out fine.

It is definitely interesting dealing with an inherited home and all the siblings. I once had one where one of the heirs refused to sign the closing papers: one week prior to closing. Not a nice situation.

Joshua, It's definitely an emotional situation...

Rebecca, With 11 siblings, we can't imagine it going completely smoothly, but glad it worked out fine!

Toni, We can imagine this as we had one where the 3 siblings didn't speak with each other and one got insulted that she was the last to sign so she delayed the closing!
