Selling a deceased estate can be difficult, that’s why getting the right agent can be important. So, who is the right agent ? With our current focus on helping families, it’s a pleasure to have my colleague, Wendy Russell, Buyers Agent extraordinaire, write an article for me based on her recent and very personal experiences when a family member died late last year. Dealing with a Deceased Estate is not confined to the older generation obviously, but more often than not, we associate the older generation with having to deal with it more frequently than younger members of the family. Here is Wendy’s experience.
Winding up an estate is not just something that older people have to deal with. It can be thrust upon you at any stage in your life. Being prepared is something I’d never thought of until it happened to me.
Selling a deceased estate can be difficult for all involved
When my uncle passed away fairly unexpectedly last year, I was hit for six. Dealing with the death of loved one is never an easy experience and probably not one that twenty or thirty somethings think about until the unexpected happens.Since he had no wife, no kids and no other immediate family other than myself, my sister and my dad, well, it was up to us to make the necessary arrangements to say goodbye.
