You might think that pricing your inherited property at what the market will pay is enough. However, there are many factors to consider when deciding this cost and one of them includes how fast do you want it sold? Selling through an agent on “the market” can take months before they’re finally able to get an offer that makes sense, this after being listed several weeks.
