Do you need to sell an inherited home, but are struggling to do so on the regular real-estate market?

KC Property Guys offers an alternative solution, which allows you to bypass lots of bureaucracy and headache. It’s a great way to resolve estate issues once and for all, and divide equity proceeds among one or more beneficiaries. This article will cover everything you need to know about selling inherited properties in Kansas City.

Why People Sell Inherited Homes Through Cash Buyers

The calls and inquiries we receive for inherited homes are very common. They typically come from local siblings who have gotten homes through estates, probates, or trusts. Sometimes an inheritance does not have specific documentation to prove it, but there are several ways to demonstrate you’re the rightful heir.

Even when the documentary evidence of inheritance is a little fuzzy, you can claim a property without enduring the probate process alone. KC Property Guys handles these situations in both Kansas and Missouri, which have their own legal procedures for verifying inheritance.

Sell an Inherited Home to Avoid Several Burdens

Each case has its own variables and circumstances, but it’s not difficult to claim an inheritance and sell a property you don’t wish to keep. The cash sales approach has advantages over regular real-estate sales in inheritance cases because it’s much easier with way less hassle. You don’t have to endure as much burden, which includes all the emotional and possession aspects.

The whole scenario can overwhelm inheritors, so we try to take care of the selling details. If, for example, you don’t want to sift through your loved one’s old possessions, you can leave them and let us handle everything with an auction or estate sale. We work with companies that can handle all the belongings.

How Long Does it Take to Sell an Inherited Home?

This timeline for selling an inherited property can vary substantially, but it can work to your advantage. KC Property Guys always offers as much deadline flexibility as possible. Of course, the specific timeline constraints depend on whether you’re in Missouri or Kansas.

In Missouri, it works much quicker with less red tape. It’s easier to sign over the property in as little as 12 days after signing a transfer affidavit.

You may have to jump through a few more hoops in Kansas, by going through probate court. First, you must secure a “determination of descent,” where the court gives a blessing on the inheritance, and it usually takes at least five to six weeks. There then also follows a 10-to-12 day underwriting process for signing off on the home.

KC Property Guys has plenty of resources like real-estate attorneys and closing companies that are very savvy at handling these issues. We do this regularly for clients in both states and can establish closing timelines even amid all the court procedures.
