When selling probate real estate, a real estate agent can help with a variety of ancillary services that can make the process easier for the executor or administrator of the estate. Here are some examples of ancillary services that a real estate agent can help with:
Property Valuation: A real estate agent can provide a market analysis to help determine the value of the probate real estate, which is important when setting a listing price.
Property Cleaning and Staging: To make the property more appealing to potential buyers, a real estate agent can help arrange for cleaning and staging services, which can make the property more attractive and sellable.
Home Inspection: A real estate agent can arrange for a home inspection to identify any repairs that need to be made before the property is listed for sale.
Estate Sale: If there are personal belongings or furniture that need to be sold, a real estate agent can help arrange for an estate sale or recommend an estate liquidation company.
Marketing and Advertising: A real estate agent can help market and advertise the property through various channels, including online listings, social media, and print advertising.
Open Houses: A real estate agent can hold open houses to showcase the property to potential buyers, which can help generate interest and offers.
Negotiation and Closing: A real estate agent can handle negotiations with potential buyers and guide the executor or administrator through the closing process, including coordinating with attorneys and title companies.
Inherited Property Taxes: If the probate real estate has inherited property taxes, a real estate agent can provide guidance on how to manage them and ensure they are paid on time.
Probate Court Requirements: A real estate agent can help navigate the requirements of the probate court related to the sale of the property, including obtaining court approval for the sale.
