Choosing the right Real estate team to handle the sale of real property in probate or a trust can turn out to be an unexpectedly daunting task, especially when combined with the enormous amount of stress that’s involved in losing a loved one. Families only have one chance at making a decision of who to go with and they hope that it will be the right one. The way to eliminate uncertainty is to do the proper due diligence in the beginning and make sure that you hire someone who has extensive experience selling properties in Probate.
Selling real property that’s in probate involves a series of court regulated steps that must be strictly adhered to, deadlines that must be promptly met, specific documentation unique to probate transactions, a marketing system which brings maximum exposure to potential buyers and a negotiation strategy which ensures that no money is left on the table.
We are a full service real estate team handling all aspects of the sale of real property, from managing the preparation stage (property clearing and donation, repairs, touch up work, staging, etc.) to the marketing and negotiation, through close of escrow and beyond.
We are experienced in the probate, trust and court confirmation processes. We are familiar with the specific documents, contracts, and disclosures which are (and more importantly, are NOT) required during the sale. We regularly attend luncheons at the local Bar Associations, network with attorneys, and stay up to date on legal issues that may affect the sale of real property through probate and trusts.
In addition to all of the complimentary services we provided above, our team will also manage the entire process of preparing the property for sale. Because of our experience with selling probate properties that may need some additional TLC, we have developed relationships with contractors, painters, plumbers, electricians, and handymen who will do excellent work at very reasonable prices in an efficient and timely manner. We will manage the entire project so that you don’t have to, and we will send regular progress reports with pictures throughout the process. Best and most important of all, our contractors will Defer Payment until Close of Escrow. So the estate doesn’t have to pay up front and can pay for the upgrades and repairs at the close of escrow.
In addition to mastering the traditional Real Estate Marketing channels, such as; Multiple Listing Service, print advertising, open houses, etc. the Rise Homes uses a proactive, aggressive marketing campaign to ensure the maximum amount of exposure possible through Social Media Targeted Demographic Marketing, Search Engine Keyword Marketing, and multiple networking mediums with other top agents throughout the United States to find the right buyer for your property.
By generating the maximum amount of exposure possible, we facilitate an environment that will bring us more offers. With more offers comes the ability to negotiate up to the highest possible price. Having been a part of many real estate transactions on both the buyer and seller side and attending countless seminars and training on negotiation, we pride ourselves on our ability to skillfully procure the most favorable terms and highest price for our clients.
Oftentimes attorneys will want the realtor handling the transaction to do things a specific way (number of showings, presenting a comparative market analysis, etc.) We tailor our sales process to make everyone feel comfortable and confident through the transaction, while still maintaining the proper systems and strategies in place to ensure a highest possible sales price and a quicker transaction.
One of the most common complaints about realtors is their lack of communication skills. We send out a weekly email status update to the executor and the attorney and are available by phone and text every day.
You’ve got questions and we can’t wait to answer them.
