palo alto trust sale realtor: Selling A Palo Alto Home In Probate or Trust With or Without Tenants - 01/05/17 07:58 AM

This is a question I get asked all the time. When an owner has passed and has rental property should the heirs sell the Palo Alto probate or trust home with the tenants in place, or wait until the lease is up?
