house sale help

hi all sadly my dad passed away this morning (on his 75th birthday) so me and my sis are running around telling everyone and making arrangements

i live 200 miles away and my sis about 25 and neither really has time for the normal estated agent type sale so wondered if anybody knows of an alternative other than auction for a quick hassle free sale?

i suggested asking the local housing association and i found a few sell your house in 7 days sites on the web but not sure if they are dodgy ??

Deepest Sympathies mate to you and your family!!

If you put the house up for sale whilst your there, then cant the Estate Agent show them around, without you being there, and contact you with potential sale figures etc...

Sorry to hear about your loss, you can market the house by yourself on somethinig like house ladder. Also maybe don't worry abpout selling the house yet, get the funeral sorted first?

Dont touch those sell your house in 7 days.

Leave the keys with the estate agent, jobs a good'n.

Don't cut your nose off to spite your face. Your Dad I'm sure would be angry if you sold his house for less than it was worth.

When my nan died my mum sold her house, from more then 300 miles away - just employ a local estate agent & leave the keys with them.

oh right thanks guys thought we had to be there

guess if we price it right it should sell pretty quick nice quiet cul de sac 3 bed semi with large garden and off street parking should sell easy enough i guess

+1 Houses can take quite some time to sell. Agree get the funeral sorted first. Does the house have to be sold within 7 days?

also,not sure how it works in England ,but in Scotland you have to go through probate before you can sell anyway. i.e.,it isnt technically yours to sell yet until all debts,creditors have been checked,all assets calculated.

Scottish law is weird in some things tho so could be different elsewhere.

Where is the house located? Might give you an idea of price. Rip your dad :(
#11
Your father has only just passed away - give yourselves time for this horrible news to sink in as I dont think it has. Concentrate on funeral etc, and coming to terms with this then face things like the house and other things.

Just take it easy just now

Did he leave a Will ? He might have left the house to someone else.
#13

Not meaning to slate at all, but can't help notice that OP is thinking about the house sale (finance matters) on the same day his/her dad passed away. That is really sad.

RIP. :thumbsup:

I'm in no rush but my Sister just wants it gone it's just one of the things we have to sort out
And as it would end up being her as she is close I'm happy to go along with what she wants

I dont mean to sound mean, but I was thinking the same thing :? From reading the OP the first thing I thought was didnt you get along.. then, why do you need such a quick sale. To pay bills, funeral costs etc?? I dunno, and its none of my business, but I just think you should give yourself some time, take it a step at a time.. theres enough to sort out, the certificate, little things like hymns or songs, sorting out his belongings.. and like someone else said, maybe he left his house to a member of the family. Theres so much to do, and feel, that its perhaps best to take it one day at a time, ie give yourself time to grieve before worrying about quick sales :thumbsup:
And Im obviously also sorry for your loss.

xx

Its my feeling that stuff like that should take time.. When our Nan passed away my Aunty and my Dad didnt begin to touch her things until about 2 weeks after her funeral, by the 3rd week it was empty.. it had to be then though because she was in a council house and they wanted it done.
I dont know, I just feel things like this are better left until later. Sort through belongings, and I dont mean that to sound horrible, like people should riffle through his things and lay claim to them, but photos etc, memories, take your time over what you want to keep and not act in haste. Youre his daughter too, so you need to be comfortable with things as well.

Anyway, now Im clearing off.. Ive stuck my nose in enough here!

I hope youre ok, as ok as you can be anyway, it must be so hard xx

its not that we are in a rush its just that there is so much to sort out closing bank accounts utilitys subscriptions etc

spent all day trying to sort out funeral and waiting for death certificate from hospital

we both assumed we had to show people round and wondered if there was an easier way than estate agent

as i said my sis will be dealing with most of the stuff due to living close by and i want the minimum hassle for her the money etc is imaterial to me i just want it sorted for her

as for my dad i'm just glad his suffering is over been ill for years finally becoming housebound and losing his independance was devestating for him
