What To Do With Your Unwanted Inherited Property In Minneapolis St Paul

Many people find themselves with an inherited a Minneapolis St Paul property from a parent, uncle, ante, or from just anyone who wanted them to have it.  Often that piece of real estate is unwanted and does not mean that much to the person who inherited it. When family members or close friends pass on, they will their property holdings to their next of kin, if they don’t specifically say who is to get it, the local government will step in to decide what happens to it. This leaves you, the recipient, responsible for property upkeep, possible landlord duties, property taxes and possible homeowner’s or property owner’s association fees.d Let alone if there is back taxes owed on the house that will need to be dealt with.  What now?

You Might Need To Do A Probate

First of all, the property will most likely have to go through a probate process depending on how it is currently deeded (what kind of paperwork the county has connected to the property. Check into the local and state laws regarding the inherited properties around the twin cities. We have worked a lot within Hennepin, Anoka, Ramsey, and Washington counties.  They all seem to be in agreement with what needs to be done.  If you are in a different county, contact them, or give us a call and we might be able to answer some questions. If you have already completed probate, you may have to do an additional probate in the county or state the property is located, especially if it differs from where you live in order to have full legal rights to the property. For more information regarding these laws, contact Minnesota Cash Home Buyers at (612) 444-5088 to discuss potential probate for your unwanted inherited property in Minneapolis St Paul, Minnesota . 

You Could Rent It For A Profit

If you inherit a single-family or multi-family residential home, and you don’t want to live there, consider renting out the property. Today’s market is hot for rentals. with such a shortage of housing in the Twin Cities the rental market just continues to get better.  This could be a nice addition to your pocket book. You might have to make a few repairs, do some painting or upgrades to make it marketable, but over a short amount of time, it will be a really good investment since you didn’t have to make a large purchase to have this extra income stream. You might have inherited this home or multi-family property with renters in place;  this can be even better! This will save you the trouble of fixing it up and finding tenants. But also know that you do not know who you are inherited as renters.  Do some research if you can on how they are at paying rent, taking care of the place, and estimated time they think they will remain in the property. As a uptick, most people in Minneapolis St Paul who get a home or piece of real estate given to them like this find out that the renters have been paying under market rent for years.  You should be able to raise the rent at least $25 month and maybe as much as $100.

If you inherit commercial property and you don’t own a business or don’t plan on starting a business, you could also rent this property out! There are plenty of business owners in Minneapolis St Paul looking for a new place to run their business, especially if the property is in a prime location with plenty of traffic. These properties tend to have a pretty nice return. The main difference from residential real estate and commercial rentals is the residential leases tend to be 12 months long while commercial ones are 5 years.  Once you get someone in a commercial property you don’t really have to worry about them for years.

Of course, being a landlord isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. There is a lot of  responsibility that falls on the landlord’s shoulders; broken appliances, roof repairs, cracking driveways, potential structural issues, annual taxes, homeowner or property owner’s association fees, tenants that are fighting with each other in duplexes,  finding new tenants… the list goes on. 

You Could Sell The Property

If you do not want to move into the property as your home and the whole idea of renting and being at your tenants beck and call drives you crazy, then selling would be another option.   You owning an unwanted inherited property does not have to be a bad thing, we can help.

You Could Give The Property Away

Since you did not pay for it out of your hard working cash and you don’t want it, you could give the property to a charity or the municipality in which it lies. Contact the future recipient for their donation process, sometimes you get a tax credit for that donation. You could also give the property to one of your family members or friends, or children. You may still have to go through probate locally in order to take full ownership to donate or give the property as a gift.
