Do You Need to Sell a House in Probate Or Inherited House?


We understand that dealing with probate can be a daunting and time-consuming task, especially after dealing with the loss of a loved one. Many times, houses in probate are in poor shape, often because the late homeowner was unable to maintain it properly. If you choose to sell the house through traditional channels, such as through a Realtor, you will be responsible for making any necessary repairs to the house and making sure it is clean and presentable to potential buyers.

At Laurel Buys Houses, we are not traditional realtors. For over 20 years, we have helped many families in Sacramento sell their house in probate without the added stress. If you choose to work with Laurel Buys Houses, and we are able to make a cash offer on the home, we will buy the house “as-is.” You don’t have to worry about repairs or cleaning. We can buy the home in any condition and provide you with a fair cash offer.

Can I Really Sell A House In Probate?

 

Before you think about selling your inherited property in Sacramento, make sure you have the authority to do so.

If the estate is intestate, meaning no will is present, the house will need to be sold through the probate courts, which is a highly regulated process. There are court fees and specific processes that must be followed. These processes vary from state to state.

However, if an estate is testate, meaning there is a will present, the executor will be able to petition the courts to sell the property on their own. This is ideal for those who want to avoid court costs while retaining more control of the process. For those who want to save even more money, quickly selling your inherited property to a professional buyer who is familiar with the probate process may be the best way to go. When you work with Laurel Buys Houses, you won’t have any of the expenses you will likely incur when working with a Sacramento real estate agent. Our goal is to make your selling experience fast and simple so you can focus on your family and loved ones.
