Taxes for the sale of an overseas inherited house?


I am a U.S permanent resident and over 8 years ago I inherited my dad’s house in Venezuela. I just sold the house below the market value and I never made a profit from the house, I even spent money keeping it. Do I have to pay taxes for that sale and bring the money into the US? – Additionally I know about the SAR, do I have to submit any paperwork to the bank before the wire transfer so they do not consider that transaction suspicious?. Thanks
