 I Inherited a House, What To Do- Should I rent or sell in Boston?

 

To begin with, and do not take this to be a fake sentiment, but we are truly sorry for the loss of your loved one. We do not know one another- we have never met. Odds are you haven’t heard about us, however the staff at Glymph Properties (GP) recognize how distressing the dying of a family member could be. This is often a very challenging time for a lot of reasons, and with property possession it’s difficult even at the very best of occasions.

You’re thinking, “I inherited a house… Should I rent it? Should I sell it? How should I sell it?”

There are many of options open to you, but, which will you take? Regardless of the path you decide to take, we can help.

We’re seasoned investors in Boston real estate, and we’re planning to buy several houses each month in the Boston Texas area. Every other day we get calls from those who have inherited a house and are looking to sell their house- so the info below are some tips to help you navigate the process.

 

I Inherited A House, What To Do Next?

Here’s a few important considerations to help you make the right choice:

1) Verify the mortgage is paid off.

This may sound like a no brainer, but make sure that the person who left you the house paid it off in full, otherwise, assuming you want to keep it, you’ll have to pay it off. Some banks will allow you to assume the loan, while others may make you to refinance your home into a new loan. If you are not eligible for a new loan, renting may not be possible for you.

 

2) The investment is only as good as the manager.

 

If dealing with realtors, repairs and maintenance, tenants, rent collection, and all the detailed aspects of property management isn’t the best use of your time, hire a professional to help you or cash out now. A handful of people who inherit houses decide to keep the house and rent it for extra income. That’s a good strategy for sure. You just need to be prepared to manage the property and the hassles that can go along with tenants and toilets.

 

3) Property ownership costs money.

It’s rare to see a building that’s been perfectly maintained. Almost all inherited properties need major improvements.

 

Consider hiring a professional property inspector to give you a detailed rundown on what you’ll need to do within the next five years, along with estimated costs. Surprises are very, very expensive.

 

4) Selling a property for the max costs money.

If you don’t want to deal with making maintenance, renovating kitchens, improving landscaping and overall cleanup, don’t worry. Glymph Properties buy Boston houses for cash, as-is.

 

5) If the market will continue to grow faster than your other options, hang on to the investment.

 

We can help you find out if it’s more advantageous to keep your property and rent it out or to get rid of it. If you can use the equity in your property in another way that outpaces the performance of the real estate market, you should. If you don’t have anything better to do with the money and the neighborhood is rising in value, hang on to it- real estate can be a great investment if you know how to correctly read the market.

6) Taxes, Taxes, Taxes- Uncle Same wants his piece.

 

Don’t forget to discuss your inheritance with tax and legal professionals before you take action. There are major property and income tax consequences that will dramatically impact the cost of owning your investment.

 

7) Consider all your options.

In certain situations we may be able to help you structure a lease-option agreement that allows you to rent and sell at the same time, capturing the best of both worlds. These kinds of deals can be complicated, but our Boston investment experience can help you win.

8) Compare a few scenarios.

 

We’ll help you determine prices for any property near Boston – if you sold it today without doing any work, the highest price the market will bear, and the projected value of keeping it as a rental (along with the costs).
