Looking beyond that fact that apparently a loved one died to inherit the homes (sorry for your loss) it sounds like a good problem to have, to own 5 homes and need to do something with them. However selling them cheap just to be selling them is probably not the best option when all the ramifications are considered. Mainly TAXES. Personally I would probably keep them and rent them and get a steady monthly income, but first you need to determine the tax and legal implecations. Then determine the value of the properties,l use a good local Realtor to hep you do this, and they can always assist you with appraisals or price opinions and possibly help with property management services or reccommend someone that can. However be prepared that owning any home has costs involved, property taxes, insurance, maitenence issues, etc so selling one or tow may be something to consider if the taxes would not kill you that is. Again consult an attorney, CPA, and a Realtor, Probably in that order.
