I Inherited a Houseand How to Sell the House Quickly
Relief from the Burden of an
Unwanted Inherited Property
For some, inheriting a deceased estate property can be a blessing. For many, however, trying to deal with an inherited property lends itself to a host of difficult financial and legal obstacles — especially if multiple heirs are involved.
If you’ve just inherited a house, you’re most likely still in the process of grieving the loss of your loved one. On top of that, you may not even want the house. It may be too far from where you live, in poor condition, or just not suited to you or your family’s needs.
Regardless, Ezer can help you navigate through all of these situations and answer any questions you have along the way.
Selling a House You Inherited
Figuring Out the Estate
Before you can take the next steps, it’s important to know exactly how ownership of the deceased estate property has been distributed, whether it’s via probate, a transfer on death deed, or a living trust. This will determine the number of heirs, as well as who has the ability to make decisions regarding the property.
Can I Sell a House I Inherited?
Sometimes a house left to you just doesn’t fit into your life. Luckily, inheriting a house in a trust or probate doesn’t mean you’re stuck with it. There are plenty of ways to go about selling the deceased estate property both during and after the probate process. And, if you have a transfer on death deed or were named executor in a living trust, you can sell without going through probate at all!

Common Problems or Questions About Inherited Properties
You probably never imagined you would ever be responsible for choosing what to do with a deceased estate property. This responsibility can be especially tough if you aren’t fully aware of what options are available to you in the first place.
What is probate?
Probate is the legal process during which a court formally distributes a deceased person’s assets among one or more beneficiaries. Inherited properties often fall under a lengthy probate period (sometimes up to two years long) if ownership hasn’t already been specified in a transfer on death deed. If you’ve been appointed as the executor or administrator of the will, contact us to know more about how to sell a house in probate and how long the executor has to sell.
I’m not the only heir.
If you inherited a house with multiple heirs, it’s important to make sure you’re all on the same page about whether to sell the house and how to split the proceeds of the sale. Ezer works with the other heirs to create a solution that suits everyone and can even offer to buy their portions of the property from them.
Do I have to get the house “ready to sell”?
We buy houses “as is,” which means you don’t have to do anything to the property in order for us to buy it. We handle all repairs and renovations after the sale has already gone through, and you won’t have to worry about staging or decluttering the house beforehand.
How long does the probate process take in Texas?
The probate process in Texas can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few years depending on the size of the estate and the number of beneficiaries involved. If the will is missing or contested, it can take even longer. It’s important to note that the executor of the will has a window of four years after the decedent’s passing to begin the probate process, after which he or she will no longer be able to distribute assets to the beneficiaries of the estate.
Don’t Get Stuck with a House You Don’t Want
Chances are you just want this to be settled as soon as possible so you can get back to your normal life and grieve in peace without having to deal with the stress of what you’re going to do with the property you’ve been handed. If you reach out today, we can help get you there in as little as a few weeks. Whether or not you decide to sell, Ezer will be on your side through it all.

Do I have to fix up my house?
No, we buy houses as they are, blemishes and brusies included.
Do I have to pay for anything?
Nope! We can pay for everything: closing costs, title costs, repairs. All of it.
