Probate is a scary word in real estate since it is not a majority sale type. Agents and Buyers have little experience with the ins and outs so the typical result is to avoid these types of sales. We’ve had the privilege this year to participate in 4 probate transactions and successful court approved closings so we have a little more confidence in the process and what is expected by the parties involved.
So what is probate? Probate is the legal process that results in a court validating someone’s will or determining that he or she died without one. The court, as part of the probate, will appoint someone to handle the bills of the deceased as well as his or her assets.
I’ve located an article that really drills down and explains some of the finer points here at
