It Can Be Complicated or Simple to Sell a House after Death

When a family member names you as the executor or executrix of their estate, it means they trusted you implicitly. It also means they knew you would perform important tasks, such as sell a house after death.  

The estate attorney performs complicated legal tasks, keeps track of funds, and complies with court orders. To limit unnecessary legal fees, you can arrange to liquidate real property yourself. 

A realtor can sell a house after a death

When you sell a house after death, you must make certain you’re getting the best price. You should discuss selling options, prices, and expenses with the estate attorney. Check with a realtor for estimates on:

  • Pre-listing preparation and expenses
  • Comparables (selling prices for similar houses)
  • Potential listing and selling prices
  • Estimated time from listing to closing

For pre-listing preparation costs, contact a contractor, a house cleaning service, and other professionals. Your realtor can give you a sale price “guesstimate” by reviewing comparables. Unfortunately, until someone buys the house, a realtor can only guess how long it will remain on the market.
