Inherited Home Sales & Staging - The Villages® Community - Florida

Among the many topics real estate agents discuss routinely with clients, the subject of selling an inherited home after a loved one has passed away is the most difficult. With the combination of clients’ painful emotions, unanswered questions and conversations between family members regarding the best plan for the future of the home, the experience can be overwhelming.

Although the discussion is not easy to have, we advise our clients that preparation is essential in these situations. The first step after settling the estate is to determine whether to sell, rent or keep the home. You will want to include a team of experienced professionals such as your attorney and real estate agent to guide you with practical advice through the process.

Next, you will want to perform a home walk through and take notice of the condition of everything from the walls, floors, ceiling, paint, etc. A professional home inspection is a vital part of this process as there may be areas requiring upgrade or rehabilitation. You will also want to locate the deed to the home, determine if there are any mortgages or liens and find out if the property taxes are all paid. Obtain an accurate appraisal of the home, and price it correctly.

Finally, and probably most importantly, have the home staged in preparation for the sale. The staging of a home can make a significant impact on getting the home sold in a market that is price-competitive. The experts at White Pelican Realty can assist you in determining areas that need design improvements like updated paint colors, strategic lighting scenarios, and maximum curb appeal. We can also help you to see the home from the perspective of potential buyers and to organize clutter, spotlessly clean the home and get it ready for open house.

How will the extensive growth of the Villages® community impact existing home sales?

Thursday, August 24, 2017

While The Villages® community is rumored to be at or near the originally intended “build-out” capacity of 100,000 residents, growth in and around “Florida’s Friendliest Town” (spanning Marion, Sumter, and Lake Counties) shows no signs of slowing down.
