Don’t Take On Probate Alone
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 table. 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 professional 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.
From Clean Out To Closing
Unfortunately, many estate properties suffer from deferred maintenance, either because the late homeowner was ill or simply could not maintain it properly for other reasons. You can alleviate the anxiety of repairing and/or maintaining the probate property by leaving the details to my team of carefully vetted reliable home professionals to bring the home up to a marketable condition in order to be sold in a competitive market.
Our Team Can Facilitate The Sale Of Personal Possessions
Over the course of a lifetime, people accumulate a wide variety of possessions, objects, and belongings that reflect their lives. Disposing of these possessions in a dignified, yet efficient manner is often an obstacle in bringing the estate to a final settlement. If that’s the case, our team can help coordinate a successful estate sale or refer you to reliable appraisers and other professionals that will sell the belongings for top dollar.
You should also be aware that the estate can realize significant tax advantages by donating any unclaimed assets and possessions to charity, and we maintain strong personal relationships with numerous charities that would welcome these donations with open arms.
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. Sometimes, funds can even be advanced prior to closing. 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.
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!
