I Inherited a House, Now What? – A Guide from Tony Buys Homes

As a full-service real estate wholesaler and cash home buyer in Illinois & Chicagoland, with a 5-star rating and over 15 years of experience, we’re here to help.
Assessing Your Situation
The first step is understanding your new responsibility. Inheriting property means dealing with potential mortgages, taxes, and maintenance. It’s crucial to assess the financial and legal aspects of the inheritance. Consult with a real estate attorney to understand any obligations that come with your new asset.
Exploring Your Options
Once you’ve assessed your situation, consider your options:
1. Moving In
If the house suits your needs, moving in could be a great choice. However, consider the costs of upkeep and any necessary renovations.
2. Renting It Out
Renting provides a steady income but comes with responsibilities like finding tenants, managing repairs, and understanding landlord-tenant laws.
3. Selling the Property
Selling can be a practical option, especially if you’re not prepared for the responsibilities of being a landlord or if the house doesn’t meet your personal needs.
