In the recently published guide, Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty also highlights the key role a real estate agent with expertise in probate can play when it comes to preparing an inherited home for sale and landing a successful transaction.

While the probate process arranges the aspects of handling a loved one’s assets following their passing, many families choose to sell the properties they inherit. Knowing how to increase one’s chances of offloading a house quickly can further streamline the process. In his guide, ‘Selling a Home in Probate: How to Ensure Your Property Qualifies for Financing,’ Marc Cormier answers some of the main questions individuals have when dealing with a probate property.

As the guide explains, many prospective property buyers will want to use a financing option to back their purchase, each coming with its own specific requirements, mainly related to the condition of a property and its asking price. By ensuring that their property meets certain criteria, owners are more likely to attract a larger number of interested buyers.

Alongside this guide, Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty’s website offers a variety of resources regarding almost all aspects of the probate process, covering advice on choosing a probate attorney, the importance of estate planning, and tax questions regarding inherited properties.

Marc Cormier has also released a ‘How To Navigate Your Inherited Home Sale’ eBook for those seeking more in-depth information regarding selling a property in probate. The book is available through a sign-up form available on Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty’s website.
