Selling probate and trust real estate, you can’t afford to use just any real estate agent. We has the knowledge and background to help you navigate this complicated process with professionalism, integrity and trust.
When someone dies without a will, their real property must go through probate. That can seem frustrating for family members who are trying to sell the property and move on, but it is necessary to ensure that the sale is handled in the best way possible, and that it brings in the highest sale price for the property itself. There may be heirs to be paid and debts to be settled from the property’s sale, all of which can be coordinated to run as smoothly as possible.
You’ll Need To Go Through the Court
Selling probate real estate must be done through the state and the court system, although it can be listed and marketed through an agent in much the same way as other types of properties. As the personal representative or the trustee, you definitely don’t want to be taken advantage of as you move through the process of getting the property sold, and with knowledge of the right tips and tricks that can be more easily avoided.
Choose Your Attorney Wisely
Make sure you work with a good estate attorney. If your loved one died without a will you need the legal protection that an attorney can provide. That way you will be able to ensure that your loved one’s real estate is sold fairly, and that debts and other obligations are taken care of out of the proceeds. Without an attorney on your side, you risk being cheated by people who will prey on your grief or lack of understanding of the process of probate. That could even result in the loss of the property.
How Much Work Does the Property Need?
You’ll need to focus on the condition of the property itself. There may be cleaning and repairs that should be handled. If that’s the case, work to get those done so the property will have a better chance at selling for a good price. By working with us, you can get any problems with the property corrected and you won’t have to pay anything up front. Contractors who do the work will get paid from the proceeds of the sale of the property.
