When you lose a loved one, it can be hard enough coping with your emotions. But on top of that, there ends up being quite a lot of things most people never think about having to deal with.

One of those things can be dealing with the real estate your loved one owns.

Decisions, and how to proceed, can be difficult when you’re deciding what to do with your own home. But when it’s a loved one’s house, it’s often even more difficult — especially if there are others involved in the process. There’s just more to do and think about than in a “normal” sale.

This is why I’ve created my booklet . It will give you a handle on some of the common (but often unspoken) issues you’ll face when it comes to dealing with the house of a loved one who has recently passed away.

If you’ve recently lost someone, or know someone who has, please feel free to request a copy of my booklet. I hope you find it helpful, and my condolences go out to you and yours.
