Homeowner Help Inheriting a Home
Inheriting a home is a unique experience, often carrying a mix of sorrow for the loss of a loved one and excitement for the property that they cared enough to leave to you. Whether you're planning to live in the home yourself, rent it out, or get it prepared for sale, following a proven process is the best way to accomplish your goals. Inheriting a house is quite different from shopping for Harrisonburg homes for sale in the traditional way, and there will be big decisions to make regardless of what you choose to do with the home. Our REALTORS® are here to help, with our guide for what to do when inheriting a house.

  • Make a Plan for Utilities
    Regardless of what you ultimately decide to do with a home you inherit, you'll want to keep the property in good shape while you decide. Start by making sure that necessary utilities remain turned on while canceling any utilities you won't need while the home's status is in flux. It's often wise to keep the lights and water on since you'll be spending time getting the house prepared.
