You just inherited a property in New Jersey and even though it’s exciting to realize that someone remembered you in their will, the reality is that an inherited home can only become a burden if you already own a home and don’t know what to do with the inherited property.
In this post we will offer you several tips you can use for selling an inherited property in New Jersey.
Before we provide you with tips on selling an inherited property it’s important for you to know that you will face potential tax implications from selling the inherited home because inherited properties do not qualify for the sales tax exclusion unless you plan on actually living in the property for two years.
Although you may not qualify for the sale tax exclusion you will quality for a stepped up tax basis meaning that you will only have to pay taxes on the fair market value of the home or property at the time of the prior owners death and you won’t have to face lots of taxes on the property that may have accumulated over the years.
