Going through probate can be a long and challenging process.
And the last thing anyone wants is to choose a real estate agent that makes the probate process MORE DIFFICULT than it needs to be.
Ideally, you’ll want to work with an agent who has a lot of experience with probate properties.
But how do you know if the agent actually knows what they’re talking about?
At Christopher Ellyn Homes , we’ve been buying and selling real estate for quite a few years now, and here are some questions that we recommend asking agents to determine if they’re experts at the probate process.
Are You Educated in Probate? — Why not just ask the agent outright? They might not be completely honest, but that’s when you can ask more detailed questions to find out the truth.
How Many Probate Transactions Have You Done? — A real estate agent who’s a true expert at the probate process will have done a sizeable number of probate transactions. They might not know the exact number, but it should be clear that they’ve done quite a few.
How Do Probate Sales and Traditional Sales Differ? — If a real estate agent can’t explain the difference between the probate sales process and the traditional sales process, then they definitely don’t know what they’re talking about. Make sure to work with an agent who’s educated on the ins and outs of probate in your area.
If you decide that you want to sell the property as-is, fast for cash rather than going the traditional sales route, then give us a call at (317) 526-5715. We can make you a fair cash offer and close in as little as two weeks!
