Inheriting Real Estate Can Be Expensive

Inheriting Real Estate Can Be Expensive

The GPS Probate Team acknowledges the difficult and often emotional situation you may find yourself in if you have been tasked with selling a loved one's home. You want to sell the probate property as quickly and easily as possible and for a good price; however, you have many other things on your mind and the responsibility may seem overwhelming. You can relax; we will help you with the entire process from start to finish.


Handling the sale of a property in probate differs from the typical real estate transaction you are probably familiar with, which is why you need a real estate team that is skilled at handling this type of sale and can address the needs of you and your family. This is what we do:



  • We help you PRICE and SELL the property quickly

  • We arrange for CONTRACTORS to handle any necessary repairs

  • We work with ESTATE SALES companies to sell the personal property

  • We arrange CLEAN-OUT crews to ensure the home looks great, inside and out


SALE OF THE HOME


You have two options when it comes to selling your probate property...


OPTION 1: Sell for Market Price


You can elect to get the house into tip-top condition and have it listed on the market and promoted in all the ways you would expect with a traditional real estate transaction. This includes, but is not limited to, listing on an MLS®, multiple online advertising sites, signage and Open Houses. This will definitely bring you the most exposure and the most opportunity for profit.


OPTION 2: Quick Sale, As-Is


If your situation calls for a quick sale, we can bring you a cash offer in a matter of days from several dozen investors that we regularly work with in New York. Cash buyers, typically professionals who buy homes for investment purposes, will purchase your property as-is, usually for less than market price. The benefit to going this route is a much quicker sale, and very often you won't have to worry about minor repairs (like fixing a window or door) or investing more into the property to prepare it for sale.


CONTRACTORS


Things happen to a house over time. Your inherited home may be outdated or might need little repairs here and there to satisfy a prospective buyer. We work with skilled, honest and reliable contractors who can handle everything from small touch-ups to larger remodeling projects.


ESTATE SALES


One of the most challenging parts of settling an estate is dealing with the personal property. After you and your family have collected special heirlooms and other meaningful items out of your loved one's home, you may still find yourself with a house full of furniture and belongings that you don't know what to do with. We work with some of the most experienced estate sale companies in the area that can sell the belongings on-site or simply buy them directly. They will also coordinate the donation of any belongings to charities/churches/non-profit organizations.


CLEAN-OUT CREWS


After the sale and distribution of the estate’s personal property, the home may still need some finishing touches, whether inside or outside. Is the landscaping suitable? Do you have a stack of things to donate? Is there junk you can't get rid of? Is the property in good condition for a buyer? If not, we will arrange for a clean-out crew and/or landscaping company to come in and take care of all the last little projects you need help with before we put the home on the market. 


The GPS Probate Team understands what you are going through and we want to lift at least one burden off of you at this challenging time. You need an agent familiar with the probate real estate process -- someone who is able to synchronize all the components of a home sale while also ensuring that you get top dollar for your property.


Get in touch with us today so we can:



  • Coordinate a stress-free, organized transaction

  • Get you the best possible price for your probate property

  • Give you peace of mind


There are many things to take into consideration when dealing with a probate property, and GPS wants you to know we will handle it all so you can focus on your memories and move on with your life, without the frustration and distraction of a major real estate undertaking. We will handle the transaction from start to finish in a professional manner, giving you the freedom to move forward, knowing you have honored your loved one’s wishes.
