The Payne Real Estate Team has specialized in Probate sales since 2007, it has been a specific focus on our business to work with families through this process. We understand the challenges of the Probate process are know they are different than a normal home sale. We work, closely with Executors, Fiduciaries and Estate Planning Attorneys in the sale of Probate properties.
Below are some of the services our Probate team can provide for you:
- Provide a “Date of Death” analysis to you/estate/trust for a “stepped-up” tax base. In some cases, our records date back to the 1970’s.
- Handle any personal property in need of removal and cover the upfront costs: The family can remove or donate whatever they wish and estate sale experts, moving and cleaning crews, will handle everything else. The Payne Real Estate Team can cover any upfront costs and can be reimbursed by the estate at close of escrow if needed.
- Have the property throughly cleaned and staged. Again, the Payne Real Estate Team can cover these costs until the property sells and then we are reimbursed through escrow.
- Provide a luxury level of marketing to the property, even if it isn’t a luxury property. We use the latest tech, including, 3D home tours, professional video, photography, professional websites, and social media and online advertising.
- We can also arrange for almost anything else that might be required: This might include specialized cleaning services, setting up an auction for the property or contents, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, sending you (and any other heirs you designate) a weekly status report on all aspects of the process. Our goal is to make this as easy as possible for all concerned.
- Make necessary repairs/improvements: Our service providers do any type of work from minor repairs to full renovations. Often investing in the right repairs/improvements will allow you to sell for the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time.
Our priority is to “Provide Value First”. We’re here to help you in any way we can during this frequently difficult time. So, whether you are ready to sell right away or just need some information, please feel free to call our office any time at (415) 858 – 0060.
