Selling a Home in Probate

A probate home sale can seem like an intimidating process. It’s certainly not a simple transaction, and it can cause strain on a family, but when you hire a top-notch, experienced loc66386-425x282-Last_Will_and_Testamental real estate professional, the process will be far easier for you. At Real Estate Experts, our team of seasoned Realtors have years of experience selling homes in probate, and are familiar with the intricacies of the process in North Carolina.

Probate is a court procedure used to determine a will’s validity and any creditor’s claims, as well as identify the beneficiaries. If the validity of a will is in question, then after a person passes away, an administrator is appointed by the court. The administrator is appointed by the court to take possession of the property until probate is finalized. If the will has appointed a particular custodian, then that person is known as the executor, the person responsible for managing of the probate estate. Such management duties include preparing an inventory, paying bills, filing taxes, and distributing the estate after a court order is obtained.
