Selling a House When a Spouse Passes Away

Selling a house when a spouse passes away is just one of many difficult decisions the widow or widower must face. Nothing about it is easy. But there are ways to make a home sale easier under difficult circumstances. Keeping each task as simple and easy as possible is key to completing them all.

The most common reasons for selling a house after a death are: 1) receiving the home equity in cash, 2) eliminating household tasks and home maintenance, and 3) moving in with other relatives. The first reason – getting cash for the value of the property – is very significant to many sellers. They need cash and they need it fast, for a variety of reasons.

Besides wanting to liquidate their primary asset and claim their cash, sellers want to get out from under their property taxes, homeowners’ insurance, and maintenance costs. Not only do they want to turn their home into cash, they want to stop the monthly or annual expenses which amount to thousands of dollars per year.
