Looking for a real estate agent to help with probate?
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?
Here are some questions that we recommend asking agents to determine if they are the right person to help you through 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.
Will this property do well if I list it for sale on the MLS? — If a property is outdated or in need of repairs, it may not sell quickly or sell for what you were hoping for.
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 without the hassle of listing the house the traditional way, give us a call at (813)324-3131. We can make you a fair offer and close in as little as two weeks! When you choose Hammock, you get to relax while we do the work.
