Should I Sell My House to Family?

Should I Sell My House to Family?

Sooner or later, problems could come up if I sell my house to family members. That is true of a home sale to any buyer, but family members will continue to be part of my life. Selling to unrelated buyers is a different situation entirely. They will not be visiting for birthday parties and holiday celebrations.

No house is 100% perfect, even new homes usually have more than one issue the builder is called in to handle. But my house is not new, and it has a few issues I am living with rather than taking the time and spending the money to repair.

For example, there are cracks in the concrete patio in our back yard. It’s not a problem for us, but it could be bothersome for a new buyer, including members of my own family who like things to be “just so.” Yes, they are very particular, especially when it comes to the outdoor spaces where they will be entertaining their friends and business associates. Making a good impression is very important to them.

Selling my house to these relatives could cause a rift in our relationship and affect future family gatherings. I am not being negative, I am being realistic, and considering whether it is wise to sell my house to family.
