Compassion and Coordination throughout the Process

The process of selling real estate (real property) through probate or trust is a court-regulated series of steps that must be carefully monitored and managed. Deadlines are unforgiving, documentation is specialized, and the court’s oversight must be honored throughout the marketing, offers, negotiations and sale of the property.   

Executor or Admininistrator

In addition to the personnel of the court, the sale generally involves the Executor or Administrator of the estate, the attorney representing the estate, a real estate agent representing the seller (the estate), one or more buyers who make offers with the court, and those buyers’ real estate agents. Each of these individuals must follow the guidelines and deadlines of the court.  

Because of the involvement of the court, probate and trust sales have a vocabulary all their own. They also involve various disclosure documents and contracts that are not used in other real estate transactions. 

If you are selling or buying real property through such a transaction, we are experienced in probate and trust sales and will able to explain the language, the documentation, and the steps in the process.

Why Trust The Rantis Group?

Do you already know a Real Estate Agent? The answer for most people is Yes. Often there is a family member or close friend who has a real estate license, or even someone you have used in the past.

What we often see is people focusing on the current need to buy or sell their home, and missing out on how the purchase or sale fits into their long-term real estate goals and reacting later in life.

As a Keller Williams (KW) Real Estate planner, our approach to real estate is a bit different. While a Real Estate Agent will focus on the finishing the current transaction a Real Estate Planner helps ensure your current purchase or sale and future decisions you make throughout your lifetime help to achieve your long-term real estate goals.

You will be amazed how a conversation with a KW Certified Real Estate Planner can effect your ability to Build, Protect and Transfer Wealth through real estate.
