Buy, Sell and Analyze a Grave Site Value
Gravesites are generally
the last thing anyone ever thinks about. Nobody wakes up in the morning,
picks up the newspaper and says "Gravesites, I got to find them today."
Gravesites, for most
people only come to mind when they get that call that Uncle Joe has passed
The funeral home has to be found for his funeral and someone has to find a
grave site. The search then begins.
for Sale - What am I
looking for? - It depends on what the Situation calls for.
Considerations. Did Uncle Joe have a particular Cemetery in mind for him? Is
Uncle Joe going to be buried and that is it? Does Uncle Joe have other family
members that someday will want to be buried next to him? Did Uncle Joe want a
particular type of setting for his final resting place? Do you have a particular
type of memorial or grave marker in mind for him or did Uncle Joe have a
preference? Who will want to visit Uncle Joe's Grave Site in the coming months
and years? How far are family members able to travel to see his Grave Site?
Considerations. Is the Cemetery a reputable one? How expensive is the Gravesite? Can you buy the same Gravesite from a private owner and save money for
the family to use on the funeral or so they don't go broke? Does the Cemetery
have good maintenance? Is the Grave Site covered under a Perpetual Care Trust at
the Cemetery? Is a Vault required for the Gravesite? What are the Open and
Closing costs for the Gravesite? What kind of memorial or grave marker is
allowed for the Gravesite? Who can you buy the Gravesite grave marker from?
Does the Cemetery require that its personnel install the Grave Site marker or
can an outside company do it? What is the cost to install a Gravesite marker
for Uncle Joe? How far is the travel time to this Cemetery for family members
who will want to visit the Gravesite over the coming months and years?
Depending on your answers to
these questions a particular Gravesite will begin to come into focus. The more
criteria about number of spaces needed to buy, type of setting and style of
grave marker or memorial the more narrow you choices become. Travel distance in
the long run becomes important if a large number of family and friends expect to
visit his Grave Site over time. Making the Gravesite too remote will sadden
many loved ones and should be one of your top considerations.
