Handling Probate is Never Easy!
Whether you are a newly appointed personal representative, executor or an attorney, we can help!
As a team of experienced professionals, we will help you at every step along the way.
The process of selling your loved one’s home is likely going to be emotionally challenging, from the sorting of the personal belongings to the finalization of the sale at the closing. By surrounding yourself with professionals who are empathetic and helpful, this process can be easier. Other than an attorney, your greatest resources are real estate professionals that understand the intricacies of probate property sales.
Everyone needs time to deal with the passing of a loved one. When it’s time to liquidate the real estate in the estate, you need to take the appropriate steps to learn the market, educate yourself and find an empathetic REALTOR® that can save you time, money and headaches during the transaction. My team is ready to help in every phase of the transaction and get the terms you and your family want and need.
Do you need to dispose of the property as quickly as possible?
Here’s where we really shine. First, we will help you determine specifically what the most critical objective or objectives are regarding the real estate that’s involved in the probate.
If so, we can provide immediate cash buyers from our list of qualified investors. Often, this is vital to allow a surviving spouse to move into a more suitable location, handle medical or other bills or simply get asset funds into the hands of the heirs quickly. Our investors can often make offers within 24 hours on almost any property and can close really quickly. Of course, timelines are frequently subject to the courts and filing timelines which are beyond our control, but our efforts minimize these delays whenever possible.
Do you need to maximize the selling price to provide the greatest cash benefit to the heirs/stakeholders?
When maximum revenue is the focus, we’ll make certain the property is not only listed properly but marketed aggressively and intelligently to assure maximum exposure. We’ll make sure you know exactly what the property is worth if you are willing to wait for the right buyer and we’ll help you determine any possible repairs (if any) that might add more to the final selling price than their cost – in other words, the greatest bang for the buck. Be aware that all too often, ill-informed sellers spend far too much on repairs that do not even cover their cost in the final sale price. This is where our experience, preparation, and savvy marketing skills come into play.
WHAT IF YOU ARE THE ATTORNEY?
We work especially well in these situations. Typically the attorney of record has one of two roles. They are either appointed to the task by the court or selected by the family or executor / personal advisor. If you’ve been court-appointed, then your role is usually focused strictly on the legal issues regarding any transactions and dispersal of assets. However, if you are retained by the family or the executor/personal representative, your role usually extends to include a more advisory capacity as well. In either case, we will at all times keep you well-informed about any aspect of the process in which we are involved – especially when it comes to fielding offers on the real estate.
In some cases, the family or executor/personal advisor will want ALL aspects of the probate to be handled completely by the attorney. In these cases, we’ll work with you as “the client” regarding the real estate, just as we would with the executor/personal advisor.
We have focused our efforts on working in this unique area of Real Estate because we feel it allows us to not only perform a much-needed service to people in times of great stress but also because it is a place where we can differentiate our level of expertise from others who are not as focused in this niche. We’ve taken the time to and made the investment to properly prepare to assist you. We are ready to start working with you today and ease any unnecessary burdens quickly. We’re ready to help you immediately!
