How to Sell a Probate Property

This past year, many of us have experienced immense loss and challenges. If you are among them, we are so sorry for your loss. This is an incredibly difficult time, and you need all the support you can get.
Now, on top of that, you’re trying to sell a house in probate.
It’s okay to feel overwhelmed. Most people are unfamiliar with the process. 
From the foreign jargon to the complex laws you don’t have time to learn, probate is a tricky beast. And it’s not one you can afford to mess up. 
That’s why we’re here. We’ve broken down the probate property sale procedure in LA step-by-step.

4 Steps to Sell a Probate Property in Los Angeles

Step 1: Get a Probate Real Estate Agent to List Your Property

First things first, you need to find a real estate agent you can trust –– one that specializes in and has experience working with probate properties and the tricky laws in LA.
After you’ve authorized them to list your home, they can look over your property’s title, publish any necessary notices, and figure out the best listing price for you. 

Step 2: Determine the Listing Price

Just like a traditional home sale, your probate real estate agent will find comps in your area to determine the right listing price. Comps are homes that have recently been sold in the area. They’re usually similar in size, age, and condition to your property. This is a crucial step in providing you an accurate and appealing listing price.

Step 3: Marketing the Property

We’re live in a digital world right now, especially due to the COVID-19 effects. 
Listing properties on websites and other digital services will help not only expand your home’s reach but make it accessible to more potential buyers. 
Whether by appointment only or open houses, you and your probate real estate agent can make a plan of action that works best for you.
