Things to do When Listing an Estate for Sale

Things to do when listing an Estate for Sale

Be sure that the Will is probated before the Estate is put on the market

The executor or executrix can not enter into an agreement of sale without the will being probated

Best to refer them to an attorney if they do not have one Get the process started before putting the home on the market .

The home  should be cleaned out prior to showing the house  . Sometimes the family does this. Sometimes it becomes overwhelming for the family . It is good to have someone on hand who does professional clean-outs  It reduces the stress for the family involved and is often much appreciated  Some of these companies also clean the house . If they do not it may be a good idea to have the house cleaned. This way the house  smells clean and fresh

Once you receive word that the Will is probated list the home for sale. Have all the picture taken

You are ready!

In the winter make sure the heat is on in the summer the air conditioning . I do check on the home a few days a week to make sure everything alright The executor/executrix and I have also discussed getting a Home Warranty as it does cover vacant homes and gives the buyer extra security  It also adds security for the sellers you never know what can go wrong when a house is vacant


 The  house is now it is ready to put on the market ! Hope you priced it Right ! Price is so important . Seller must consider updating and time on the market . If it needs updating it is best to price it below market and allow for repairs for a quick sale

(unless the seller wants to do updating )

 

Time is money. The longer it is on the market the more money it is costing the Estate  The other factor I am sure to make known is Your first offer is usually your best offer   That is unless it is a ridiculous offer  Think hard before saying no   Do not get emotional  It is a house   

 

 

Relax let's think about this and talk about it  My job is to get you the best possible price & the best terms  If I think that I have accomplished that I will tell you so
