Inheriting a Family Home

Marin County has seen some dramatic demographic shifts over the last few years. For example, the average age of a Marin resident is now over 60 years old. We’re always talking to people who have inherited the home they grew up in. This can create a lot of wealth for you.

You don’t have to live here to know that entering the Marin real estate market can be pricey. If you already have an asset in hand, it’s in your best financial, and often emotional interests, to hold onto that property. Renting the home can be a better option than selling, and our Marin County property management services make it easy for you. We have established strong connections with companies to help pack and store the possessions in the house and can help facilitate this process.

Prandi Property Management provides leadership, resources, and experience to owners and investors renting out their inherited properties. Find out how much you can earn on your home when you choose to rent it instead of sell it. Then, we’ll be here to help you lease, manage, and maintain that investment.

Leasing your Inherited Property:
Financial Pros and Cons

If you’re in need of some quick cash, selling the home obviously makes sense. While renting it out is going to earn you stable long-term returns, you won’t see the investment wins right away. When you need a healthy influx of cash to send a child to college, make a down payment on a home of your own you want to buy, or make some other purchase or investment, renting out the home you inherit isn’t your best option.

However, if you’re interested in earning some monthly rent and you have the time to allow your inherited property to grow in value, renting it is a smart financial move. You’ll earn more, and you’ll have a tangible real estate asset as a foundation in your portfolio.

You’ll also earn tax benefits. Selling a property often comes with capital gains taxes. Renting it out can actually ease your tax burden. As a rental property owner, you can claim depreciation on your investment, and you can deduct for expenses such as:

  • Maintenance
  • Property management and other professional fees
  • Travel to and from the property
  • Mortgage interest and property taxes
  • Advertising, insurance, and utility costs associated with your rental

After a few years, you might want to leverage the value of your investment to buy other properties. You can continue to build your investment portfolio or sell the home you inherit through a 1031 exchange, in which you defer the taxes you’d pay when you buy a similar property or properties.

We offer expert property management in Marin County neighborhoods.

Leasing Your Inherited Property:
Emotional Tolls and Triumphs

Selling the home that’s been in your family for years is difficult. It’s hard to let go. That’s another good reason to keep it. You can rent it out and then it’s still in your family. Maybe you’ll even pass it on to a child of your own or a niece or a nephew.

Sometimes, owners worry that they’re too attached. They wonder how they’ll be able to treat the property as a business instead of a cherished family home. We understand. It might be difficult to find a tenant you can imagine sleeping in your old bedroom. You might be critical of how the residents are caring for the rose bushes that your mother always loved to water.

There are many memories tied up in your property, and that’s why a professional Marin property management team is so invaluable. We’ll be the buffer between you and your investment. You can hold onto the treasured family home while we manage the tenants and the day-to-day activities. We know how to treat the property like a business, and while we’ll treat the property like our own, we won’t be as emotionally attached as you are.

If you’re still not sure of how to handle inheriting a family property, contact our team at Prandi Property Management. We can make a difference.

“EXTREMELY SATISFIED”

Thanks again for all the terrific work you do. It gives me real peace of mind to know that you are taking care of everything. We’ve been extremely satisfied with your management of our property over the past 7 years.

I have been a tenant of Prandi at 2 of their properties and have nothing but positive things to report. They communicate well, their staff are interested in the tenants. All of my service requests have been handled promptly and positively, that in itself is unusual and very welcome. They actually listen to me when I call-what a concept!

My family has been clients of Prandi for over a decade. Every professional at Prandi has been and continues to be, superb. We have dealt with not only our property manager, but maintenance, accounts, finance, and Matt Prandi himself. Two generations are working with PPM and we could not be more pleased. Of particular excellence is Yvonne Espinoza, Tony in Maintenance (exceptionally knowledgeable and quick), and Reidun in bookkeeping/accounts. We feel they have our best interests at heart and are top notch at communication, and getting things done.

Finding a rental property in Marin is no easy feat, but after discovering Prandi it became a breeze! Our new home is gorgeous and perfect for our small family, and the leasing process was complete within 2 business days of viewing the home. Matt, Lauren, and Ashley treated us with dignity, and a level of customer service that reminds me of the before times when business relationships were built on mutual trust and respect. Matt even remembered my daughter’s unusual name and asked about her when I dropped off the deposit checks. If you’re looking to rent I highly recommend working with Prandi’s inventory to find your next home.

My husband and I relocated from New York a couple of months ago and we were living in places like airbnbs and motels because could not find a permanent place until we contact Prandi Property Management. Lauren, Yvonne and Ashley worked so fast to find us a place that in a week we had a cozy studio located just a couple blocks from downtown San Rafael, near restaurants, supermarkets, public transportation, mayor highways. They are easy to communicate with, a great team work. Thank you so much!
