Why Sell Through a Probate Real Estate Agent?

Probate Real Estate Agent

While selling a home may seem like a straightforward process to most of us, selling real estate through probate or trust is a very different situation — one that involves court-regulated guidelines on the preparation, marketing, bidding, negotiation, and ultimate sale of the property. To ensure a smooth sales process that meets the court’s requirements, it’s important to engage the services of a qualified probate real estate agent.

A probate real estate agent has the insight to develop a customized sales strategy for your property and the experience to determine a listing price that is appropriate for the market and likely to attract the most qualified buyers. He or she will be able to guide you through the complexities of the probate sales process, which requires special disclosures, listing agreements, and purchase contracts.

In addition, an experienced probate real estate agent can help with the following steps:

  • Make court appearances
  • Handle leases and code enforcement issues
  • Satisfy building/safety requirements
  • Engage attorneys for eviction services
  • Assist with inventory and obtain expert valuations
  • Develop a comprehensive property profile
  • Prepare comparative market analyses
  • Secure temporary property management services
  • Recommend qualified specialists to prepare the property for sale — including professional cleaning, repair, and haul-away services
  • Identify lockout/re-key services
  • Manage transfer of utilities and assist with moving services
