Selling probate house

Hate to have to write this. But here it goes.

My mother passed away a few months ago, my father a few years before that.

Me and my siblings are starting the probate process. The house is basically the only asset- and there is a pretty big chunk of credit card and medical debt.

The house also is a disaster. My mother didn’t keep up with it after my dad died. It’s embarrassing.

It’s 1250 square feet on 1.5 acres in eastern Massachusetts. Ruralish neighborhood near the coast.

There is so, so much work needed though, I highly doubt someone could get a mortgage. It needs siding, a roof, windows, skylights…. There are mice issues and termites on the basement door: it’s way more than me or my sister can keep up with. The yard is massive and wooded and impossible to maintain. There are two storage sheds my dad built chock full of his junk to toss.

There is also a lot of unpermitted work my father did. He was that kind of guy. Major things.

My sister insists an investment sale is a scam- I insist it is probably our only option.

I’m also realizing I’m not going to net much or anything from the sale after the debts. It’s that bad.

Is it even worth having a realtor look?

Fwiw house is assessed for taxes at $380,000
