Dear Phyllis,
I am in the midst of trying to get my dad’s home on the market to sell. Last year we placed him in assisted living and it’s apparent that he won’t be moving back to his home. Between working full time and daily visits to him, I don’t have remaining time to get his home ready. He and my mother owned the home for 30 years and, after she passed, it became a little neglected.

I really don’t know what question to ask or what advice you could give me, but any guidance is appreciated.  
Carrie


Dear Carrie,
I am sorry about your father; selling a family member’s home is always difficult. You certainly have your hands full. I agree that your father is your number one priority.

The first thing you need is help – you need an experienced real estate agent. As soon as your hire a Realtor® they begin working for you. Your agent can provide you with two marketing assessments: one in as is condition and one with some minimal repairs. Of course, if you want to sell for the most money you may want to spruce up the property perhaps with a fresh coat of paint or brightening up the landscape, etc.

I understand you have limited time to devote. In addition to making suggestions on inexpensive repairs which will provide the most bang for your buck, your Realtor® should be able to meet vendors for estimates and supervise any work. It really doesn’t need to be time consuming for you, that’s what we do on a day to day basis: Help home sellers prepare their home for sale.
