My mother and I hadn’t been on speaking terms for quite some time.
We never ended up making it right together.
She passed away and all I got was what she wanted to give me in her will. There was no big makeup story or sweet, touching letter at the end. All I got was her house in Oregon. I am not a real estate person at all. I had no interest in turning her house into a rental property. I also didn’t want to list the house with a real estate agent. After my mother passed I just wanted to sell my inherited property fast for cash. I looked around at Portland real estate buyers and found cash home buyers. The Portland cash home buyer I worked with was great. I originally thought I was going to need to fly into Portland, OR, and sign a bunch of papers. I also was planning to make a bunch of repairs, clean out the house, and potentially stage it. I didn’t realize that when you sell a property fast for cash, all you need to do is sign on the dotted line. I didn’t need to lift a finger. I didn’t want anything from my mothers. I had no sentimental value to anything. So I just told the guy to take it whenever he wanted. He wrote me a check and then I was out once and for all. I even did an electronic signature. How great is that? It was such a nicer way to sell a home rather than listing with a real estate agent.
