probate agent: PROBATE R/E: Why an Executor Would Take a Wholesale Offer - 11/28/16 09:30 AM
In my Probate Real Estate Business of the last 30+ years I have been often asked why would an Executor take a wholesale offer when they don't receive the money once escrow closes, so what is the motivation.  
 
This is a great question and makes sense to ask so let's try to answer this based on my experience.
 
As I track all new probate files weekly,  I always start my approach the same way.  I contact the estate and ask if they will be selling the estate property.  
I have several answers which keep coming up.

probate agent: Probate Real Estate Tracking: Part II - 11/27/16 08:07 AM
Probate Tracking Sheet...Where we find and keep all our Probate Real Estate pertinent information.. (Continued)... 
WILL OR NO WILL
 
As a Probate Agent we will need to know whether the estate has a will.  The will gives the executor power to sell property, so we can find the info two ways in the file.  First, on the back of the "Petition to Probate", you will see a statement with boxes asking if the estate had a will or no will.  If there is a will, note it on your tracking sheet under Will Information.  You will concentrate your  "LEVEL 1" searches on property where the deceased has left … (0 comments)

probate agent: Probate Real Estate -- Assigning your Contract - 11/26/16 08:48 AM
Probate Real Estate is a unique niche I have been doing for 30 of my 40 years as a real estate agent in Northern California (Bay Area).  
 
As a Probate Agent I have represented both investors and end user buyers wanting to purchase wholesale probates and also representing estates who wanted to receive high retail and not just offers from investors.  
 
There is a science to both sides of this probatet transaction you must know. Up until about 2000, I was the only agent doing Probate Real Estate full time (as far as we know).  Today many more have joined the band wagon and I don't blame them as this is a golden opportunity … (0 comments)

probate agent: The Art of Probate Real Estate Tracking - 11/25/16 11:05 PM
 
- RESEARCHING THE FILE (Calif. Court Houses)
 
In each probate file, you will find a variety of forms pertaining to the probate real estate process.  Most of these forms don’t have the pertinent information we need.  If you concentrate only on what you are looking for and don’t try to understand every detail on every form, you will have an easier time learning the system and spend a lot less time researching files.  After you have searched through a few dozen files, you will begin to master the mechanics of probate real estate as a Probate Agent or Investor.
 
Now, under the old system, if you're researching online … (3 comments)

probate agent: PROBATE: How I made a 6% referral fee, WITHOUT being involved in the deal - 11/25/16 10:24 AM
 
So these days I'm all about saving time, delegating yet still earning good.
 
What I have been doing lately on a few deals is I refer the entire probate home to my Investor who is a Broker and buys and sells 10+ homes per month.  These are big players BUT the key is they are Brokers and if you grasp this in your business plus learn probate real estate so you have some inventory to do this and keep the entire fee then your business can soar.
 
Once I meet with an estate and evaluate what their need is, (Fast Retail Offer, Exposure on the MLS, or … (0 comments)

probate agent: PROBATE REAL ESTATE: "Right To Sell" Without A Listing - 11/25/16 06:47 AM
So another technique I use in my 30 year probate real estate business, is to have a 14 Day Pre-MLS agreement where I can bring the estate home to the market place with two weekends of open houses, test the market with a “As Is” price and “Fix Up” price then report back to the owner what the market is telling us.
 
This last Sunday my team held a home open in NorCal where we had been talking with the state for about 2 weeks on our program.  The probate home was in need of fix up and updating but it was in an … (0 comments)

probate agent: The 411 on Probate Appraisals ...What a Joke! - 11/23/16 10:15 AM
In California, as I mentioned there are two ways to sell real estate out of Probate. 
 
As a Probate Agent in California you must know all the rules and regulations if you are going to represent a buyer or seller so you can make it to a successful close.   This information is hard to find and I learned it all buy going to the School of Hard Knocks over the years (30+) and developing my system each time I sold or listed a probate.  Most of our fellow agents don't have a clue how Probate Real Estate works and even more so how you can make … (0 comments)

probate agent: Real Estate Agents, Brokers & Investors: The 411 on Probate Law - 11/21/16 10:35 PM

I have been involved in probate real estate investments (flipping, listing, and buying) for over 30 yrs and it’s been nothing short of a goldmine.
 
What I found out over this period of time is attorney’s don’t study probate law by itself, but one of the courses they take in law school. I have heard this comment over and over. Estate Attorneys do Family law which includes Probates, and most attorneys I have spoke with consider Wills their retirement funds.
 
What has amazed me about Probate Law is the fee the attorney receives. What caught my attention about this fee is that it's based on the gross assets … (3 comments)

probate agent: DO YOU EARN OVER $100K NET IN YEARLY COMMISSIONS - 01/26/16 12:42 AM
Happy New Year!   This is my first blog for 2016 as I have been very busy the last month closing out 2015 with $12 Million in closed home only production and carrying over $3M to 2016 business.  My real estate business produced $15M in production in 2015 and why I'm telling you this is because LESS THAN 10% OF MY  CLOSED BUSINESS CAME FROM THE MLS!
Yes, I want to hammer this home because most agents I know earn most of their income chasing sales on the MLS or pitching sellers for listings while competing with many agents for the same business. … (3 comments)

     We just closed a probate home Monday which was another fantastic situation where I was able to really help an Administrator who had much more need then just selling her brothers home.  I had some shady real estate agents do some crazy things to try to grab this business but as usual knowing the Probate Procedure prevailed for me and I just closed earning a $24,500 Fee and also a $2600 Loan Referral from a $425K sale.    
     We first came into contact with the Estate by researching the file the week the Estate Attorney opened the … (0 comments)

probate agent: $1.6 MILLION DOLLAR PROBATE HOME DOUBLE END SALE! - 10/27/15 03:16 AM
I want to stress how great a niche working Probate Real Estate is.   After 4 months of back an forth communication between the Executor, Estate Attorney and myself we are finally ratifying our Investors Purchase of a Home in Cupertino which has a $2.5 Million Dollar upside.    This requires my investor to tear down and rebuild so he is basically buying a lot and will be into the the new building around $2.2M and will have a $2.5M resale and probably a $200K plus profit!   My fee on this property is $80,000 (5%) and a Double End Sale which … (2 comments)
