In comparison with a traditional property sale, selling a home in probate involves certain legal requirements, such as obtaining court approval for the sale and filing the necessary documentation. The new guide emphasizes the importance of hiring an experienced probate attorney and a real estate agent to assist the executor during these complex processes.

As part of home sale preparation and marketing, Cormier suggests that readers consider improvements to maximize the value of the property and make it more attractive for potential buyers. This can include cleaning, decluttering, and repairs.

Once the home is ready for sale, a realtor who has experience selling inherited properties can advise the client regarding the sale price. They will then list it on specialized online platforms to reach more interested buyers.

“Determining the appropriate listing price for a home in probate involves considering the fair market value of the property, any outstanding debts or liens, and the need to distribute the proceeds among the heirs or beneficiaries,” Cormier states in the guide. “Your real estate agent can help you establish a fair and accurate price for the property.”

Another aspect that readers must consider is communication with the heirs. In order to ensure a smooth process, the guide encourages personal representatives to maintain open and honest communication with the beneficiaries, keeping them informed throughout the process.
