Selling a home after someone has passed away can be an emotionally challenging experience. MovetoTacoma.com creator and Tacoma real estate agent Marguerite Martin brought on her friend and Estate Sale specialist Regina to talk about the dos and don’ts of selling a home you have inherited.
How to sell an estate home in Tacoma:
Regina specializes in preparing estate homes for the market and supporting sellers that might be heirs, trustees, or dealing with grief through the process. Estate homes often have unique challenges- from clearing title to clearing the home of possessions belonging to the family. There are often a great deal of additional decisions and paperwork, and having an expert to help you ask those questions and make those decisions before you go to market can help make the process smoother, hopefully less painful, and ultimately more profitable.
What is the real estate market like for sellers in 2022?
The 2022 Tacoma Real Estate Market continues to be a seller’s market. Pierce County home prices rose 18% from 2021 to 2022. The median home price in Pierce County in January 2022 is $525,000. The housing market is most competitive for buyers searching for homes under $650,000. Due to a low inventory of homes for sale buyers agents from across Pierce County are reporting their clients are facing multiple offers.For more information check out our recent blog post, “Tacoma Real Estate Market 2022.”
What if the house I’m selling needs work? Can we sell it without doing any work?
Even with homes selling quickly right now, doing a little bit of work will definitely increase the amount of money you net on the sale of your home. But what work is worth doing? What work is a waste of time? In this video Tacoma real estate agent Marguerite interviews a couple of her favorite seller’s agents- Madison and Regina. They talk about how they advise clients on repairs and improvements to sell a house more quickly and for the most money.
