Selling Probate and Estate Real Estate

How Selling Probate Real Estate Sale Works

Selling Probate and Estate Real Estate With or Without a Trust Differs in Many Ways from a Traditional Real Estate Transaction

Selling Probate and Estate Sale Real Estate In Phoenix ArizonaHere at, I compassionately work with both Buyers and Sellers of probate homes for sale if and when the need arises. Unfortunately, this is all too often, not to mention emotional. And, it often involves contentious situations for the Sellers.

Court Approval May Be Needed

If a loved one has passed and did not have proper estate planning in place, their property may go into the probate court for sale approval after the probate case is opened. But, there are many cases where the property does not need court approval.

In a probate sale, an estate attorney, Trustee, Appointee or Representative hires a real estate agent to post the listing and sell the home. I work very closely with the attorneys, title companies and/or Representatives to assure the process is kept legal and ethical.

Additionally, I assure you’ll receive the most financial gain when selling your loved one’s home, even if it’s a fixer-upper. A large majority of probate homes for sale are fixer-uppers. This is not uncommon at all.

Don’t Leave Money Behind You’re Entitled To

Too often, there are other parties involved are eager to just get it over with and leave money on the table. I believe this is not to your best interest. I can assure that you’ll obtain the most money possible under your personal circumstances. Additionally, I will honor whatever pace and desires you need.

Marketing a Probate Home For Sale in Phoenix, AZ

During a probate sale, the property marketing is just like any other property. Once the local real estate agent is hired by executing a listing agreement, the home will be marketed just as a traditional listing.

Professional photography, virtual tours, email marketing, print marketing, Internet and social media advertising, open houses, private showings, neighborhood canvassing, networking with other agents are just a few of the marketing methods I use. This will all help bring in the widest audience of buyers to the home.

Appraised Value Versus Actual Value

Generally, the list price is based upon the listing agent’s suggestions. Quite often, independent appraisals are ordered and issued by the court. Either way, I’ll provide a professional, full comparative market analysis (CMA) for you, your attorney and/or the courts. If the appraised value is lower than the actual value of the property you’re selling, you’re not stuck with the appraised value.
