Selling your home can be a stressful time, so just image the prospect of selling an entire estate. While it can be a relatively fast and simple process, if the deceased was not organized, it can be a very slow and painful process.
Estates come in all shapes and sizes; it could be anything from a mobile home, to a multimillion dollar mansion. No matter what form the estate comes in, the goal is the same, the property is to be disposed of according to the deceased’s will and Utah law.
One of the complications with selling property which has been left by the deceased is that it needs to go through the probate process. This process ensures that there is an orderly and legal transfer of the property and that any outstanding bills and taxes are paid. This process can be a simple process, or it can get very complicated depending upon the complexity of estate and what planning was done by the deceased.
There can be many parties involved in the estate sales process. There are the heirs, attorneys, Realtors, estate sales companies, auction houses. All these parties must work together during the process.
One thing is for sure, you need an experienced Realtor who is used to working with estate sales, and can coordinate with all the necessary parties to ensure that the process runs as quickly and smoothly as possible.
