As real estate investors and home buyers, we have helped many in this situation so they don’t have to worry about all the little details. Instead, they can focus on honouring the ones they have lost and move forward.

Do you know how the home is titled?

When a property owner passes away, it is important to know how the property is titled which determines who owns what.  It helps the executor and beneficiaries make decisions with minimal conflict during an already trying time. It is crucial that the title and the property’s standing in a will is clear. 

Important Responsibilities of an Executor

If you are the executor of a will, one of the most important duties you have is to oversee the assets. The biggest of these assets is usually the property, whether it’s the primary residence, second homes, or vacation properties. The executor has the authority to take possession of both the assets and liabilities of the property. Then they must distribute items to the recipients according to the wishes outlined in the will.

It’s up to the executor to secure the property, get it properly appraised, and try to prevent it from losing its value in preparation for real estate transactions. First, the property is registered in the executor’s name through a process called transmission.

Next, the executor transfers registration of the property into the names of the heirs. The executor must deal with the estate quickly and act in the best interests of everyone named in the will. Therefore, they often looking for a solution for the fastest way to sell the home for the highest sales price they can negotiate.

To start, the executor should: 
  • Make sure the estate is insured.
  • If it is a rental property, try and get the most income from rent.
  • Pay all the debts and taxes before distributing the property.
  • Sell the asset for a fair market price if needed.

That’s where we can offer assistance. We can present you with a fair offer price for the home exactly the way it is without any added effort to clean or repair the home. What you may find even more helpful is taking care of any unwanted contents so you can just take what you want and leave the rest behind.

We offer additional services that a real estate agent typically isn’t able to provide.

Invite MJS Properties to work with the executor of an estate to clear up any confusion and help deal with obligations related to inherited property quickly and fairly to ensure the estate earns the right value.

Let go of some of your stress

A home or property is most likely the largest joint asset you share with your spouse. So this makes it difficult if you need to divvy it up in divorce proceedings. Your personal situation can complicate the final decision:

  • Can you buy the other person out?
  • Could you co-own it as an income property?

There are endless reasons homeowners need to downsize.

Maybe you are an empty nester with too much house. Perhaps your health is deteriorating, and you can’t keep up with your home’s maintenance and cleaning requirements. Maybe it is time to move into a long-term care facility. It's possible there is a deeper mental health issue like hoarding making the house unfit for living.

Too much stuff?

The longer someone was in their home, the more belongings they are likely to have accumulated. Each one holds a story or a memory. It can be daunting and emotional to figure out what to do with everything inside the house. And then there’s the additional cleaning or updates required to get the home ready to list on the market.

It is possible there is a more serious issue, and the resident suffers from hoarding, a mental illness that requires professional help. Consequently, the home can be crammed with personal belongings and garbage to the point you can barely move inside. It may have fallen into disrepair for fear of strangers entering and can even reach the point of becoming hazardous. These homes are almost impossible to sell and the work required is overwhelming not to mention the extent of issues that are often discovered after the house is empty. But our experience and skills can help sell a difficult property.

We respect your possessions

It is in these types of situations where MJS shines. Matt offers sensitivity and compassion to ensure a smooth transition in difficult and unusual situations.

Condemned or Problematic? What’s the difference?

Condemned Houses

There are some major differences between problem and condemned properties. A condemned property is one that the government has taken over from a private owner when it has been deemed abandoned or unsafe for living. Other factors that may contribute to a house being condemned include:

  • House has been vacant for a long period of time. This process can begin as early as 30 days.
  • A home inspector discovers problems that make the house unsafe to live in.
  • Utilities to the home have been discontinued.
Meeting Compliance

The homeowner will have to make changes to bring the property into compliance with the municipal codes and by-laws. Once it has successfully passed inspection, it can have its condemned status lifted. Changes required could include any or all of the following depending on how long the house has been in disrepair:

  • Plumbing
  • Heating and cooling
  • Hot water
  • Lighting
  • Ventilation
  • Electrical
  • Hidden problems in walls, foundation, and flooring
  • Pest removal
  • Asbestos
Problem Houses

Meanwhile, some homes, while in a state of disrepair, aren’t condemned by the city. These are known as problem properties which can have a negative impact on otherwise nice neighbourhoods.  A problem property is one that has had multiple complaints against it for different bylaw infractions.

Most often, this is because the owners do not take care of it. It will be in better shape than a condemned property, but it will still need work to bring the property up to code and make it livable for another family.

Reach out to MJS Properties to have a look at what you are dealing with and provide an overview of what is likely needed. They can provide a fair, no-commitment cash offer for the house removing the responsibility, risk, and expense of revitalizing the home yourself.

No cleaning or decluttering required at all.  There are no repairs and no upgrades necessary. Just take what you want and leave what you don’t. We’ll take care of the rest.

If you want to sell your home traditionally, buyers are going to compare your home to brand new homes in brand new subdivisions. To compete, many homeowners are faced with a long list of repairs, updates and sometimes significant upgrades. This can be expensive and time-consuming.

Are you really getting top dollar?

You may think you will get a huge payday after these projects are completed, but are you really ending up with more money? How much money did it cost and how many weekends did you lose doing it?

Difficult Tenants have you beating your head against the wall?

Is the cost and time to maintain and repair the units not worth the income you are earning on run down units? Are you ready to move on from a challenging investment but don’t want the hassle?  It’s time to reach out to MJS Properties to pass the baton to us.

No need to inconvenience tenants for showings to potential buyers or risk them sabotaging the deal while a real estate agent brings prospective buyers through the home. No cleaning, repairs or upgrades necessary.

MJS Properties partners with reputable real estate lawyers to ensure we follow the process outlined in the Landlord and Tenant Act to the letter. We stipulate these details in the purchase agreement.

Distance Proving to be Difficult?

Need to move away?

Are you forced to sell your home because of your career? Perhaps that promotion means you need to relocate. Maybe you weren’t so lucky and lost your job. Now you need to move elsewhere for a new position or to cut costs.

These are stressful times without worrying about the long to-do list involved with selling your home – especially if it has to happen quickly.

Trying to sell a home when you live far away?

We often here from people who have moved away from home who struggled to sell their parents’ house after they moved to a long term care facility or passed away.  Homes are older and filled with unwanted contents. Others have described scenarios of abandoned or damaged student rental properties in other cities. Staying on top of all the moving pieces of preparing and selling your home from a distance can put you in a vulnerable position.  Travel expenses and frequent long-distance communication can prove to be costly and inconvenient.

Lot’s to do? Reassign that long list of tasks to us. No cleaning, no repairs. Just sell as-is. Decide what you want to take with you and leave the rest to us.

Drama Free & Fast

It is a seller’s dream to decide to sell their home, find a buyer with an acceptable offer in a short period of time with little to no effort required. No hassle, no problems, no extra time or money required.


Even if your house is in great condition in a great neighbourhood, it will still need minor cosmetic work to boost curb appeal to get it ready to sell the traditional way. This takes time and money. Then there is the additional challenge of keeping your home clean and ready for whenever a potential buyer wishes to view the property.

Consider MJS Properties the “easy button” of selling your home quickly. We will make a fair, no-obligation offer for your home and then take care of any cosmetic improvements needed to get it ready for sale. Take what you want, leave the rest, and walk away on your timeline.

“I was heartbroken when I first admitted that I needed to sell my house. There was a lot of work to do and I was completely overwhelmed with all the stuff in the house I had to deal with before even worrying about what other cleaning or repairs would be required. My cancer treatments made it impossible to handle myself. You were the solution I was looking for. I still love my house but it’s no longer right for me. I can’t wait to see you bring your vision to reality.”
