When a property in probate must be sold, it's important for the executor to work closely with an experienced real estate agent who understands how to get a property. Probate has restrictions that are different from your average home sale and those must be monitored and followed. Cerae Cooper and her team Guardian Property Group gets right to work visiting the property. Her team will provide executors a current market value their property based on condition. Once the property is through probate and we're given access into the property, we provide a detailed market assessment. Once the executor gives the go ahead, we get the home on the market quickly.
Selling a home in a probate sale requires additional steps and many probate sales involve bringing in an estate sale company to handle selling the personal property in the home. There can be certain restrictions the sale must follow. Installing a lock box so authorized people can access the property, scheduling the home to be cleaned, getting bids for any necessary repair work prior to going on the market, scheduling photos... Every step of the way, we are the executor's "boots on the ground" project coordinator.
If an executor is out of the area, we can help by sending photos and a detailed breakdown on the condition of the property, digitally signing listing and contract docs, and helping an executor plan for signing the closing docs without ever coming into town. Along the way, we send the executor a detailed market evaluation, progress updates, marketing updates, offer updates, status updates, home inspection updates, home appraisal updates, title company updates, buyer's lender updates, and see the sale all the way through to the real estate closing.
