Do You Need to Sell A Probate House?
A lot of people end up needing to sell a probate house because they inherited a property that needed to go through the legal process of probate. Sometimes a house that needs to go through probate will need a lot of work or there can be liens owed or no one wants the house. It will also cost $1400 to $2200 to get an estate through probate with no guarantee of success. The legal process of Probate will usually be successful if all of the family agree on things.
So what is a probate anyway?
A probate is a legal way of determining who can authorize the sale of a property of a deceased person (decedent) if the person never left a will. Sometimes a property will be placed in a Trust. If the Trust has a Successor Trustee that is alive, a property will typically not need to go through probate. Only properties that are not part of a valid Trust that have specific instructions on how his or her property was to be administered after they are dead, need to go through probate. These proceedings take place in probate courts. Sometimes an inherited house can need lots of work or have liens against it in Salt Lake City. Sometimes no one really wants to deal with the house.

How to begin Selling a Probate House
in Salt Lake City
The probate process begins after a person dies. Soon after this, the seller is expected to inform the court, which appoints a Personal Representative using a document called a Letter of Testamentary (deceased has a Will) or Letters of Administration (deceased has no Will) to take care of the sale. Once this is done, the Personal Representative advertises the property just like other real estate properties. The price can be based on a Real Estate Agent’s suggestion and also from an independent appraisal ordered by the Personal Representative. A Professional House Buyer like Gary Buys Houses can buy the house as is and even help you get the probate done with an attorney.

Often times people like to sell a probate house to a professional house buyer for many reasons like ease of transaction and getting the sale done in a couple of days vs. weeks or months. Now listing with a real estate agent will usually get you the most money for your house, but there are the people walking through your house & looking at everything, repairs to be made and hoping the new buyer can get a loan to purchase the property. So yes you can probably get more money with an agent and LISTING your house, but you have to endure all the hassles.
