One of the first steps to being a strategic seller of Probate property is to know the current market value of your home.

  • Get a General Market Value of Your Property

  • Compare Your Property Condition to Recently Sold Properties

  • Adjust the Value Based on Condition

Don't Take On Probate Alone.

Getting The House Prepared to Sell.

I know it can be difficult and emotional selling the home of a loved one who has passed away, especially if you are living miles away from the home.

Finding a certified probate real estate agent who can be trusted and is familiar with the probate process, the details and necessary steps to place the home on the market and get it sold for the highest price possible is imperative.

This is because a house that is involved in probate can sometimes be handled differently than your traditional home sale. If things are not handled correctly it can cause a delay in the process and a delay in the heirs or beneficiaries receiving what is rightfully theirs.

To ensure that the process runs smoothly my solutions team is in place and ready to handle all of the necessary details to selling your loved one's home and keep you updated with the process so you have one less thing to worry about.
