Introducing the Charleston Probate Real Estate Team
Charleston Probate Real Estate
PROBATE IS NEVER EASY!
Regardless of whether you are Probate Attorney, a Personal Representative or an Executor/Executrix, we can help!
If a loved one or a friend passes away and you were designated as the Personal Representative (or Executor) for the estate, it is very probable that you may feel overwhelmed with the amount of work this generates. We know that handling a probate is never easy and you will most certainly face some difficult and perhaps emotional decisions.
We have built a team of experienced professionals to assist Personal Representatives in performing their functions. It includes probate attorneys, financial advisors specialized in estate management, estate sale companies, and a variety of contractors who can help clean, fix and present any real estate that needs to be sold.
We will also help you with some of the difficult conversations you may have to have with family members and other heirs.
Our job is to help you in every step along the way and help you anticipate and avoid any potential problems or issues. This doesn't mean that you will not have to make some difficult decisions, but at least you have a sounding board and someone to provide you the right information to make them.
Do you need to dispose of the property as quickly as possible?
We have the connections with qualified investors, rehabbers and buyers looking to buy properties "as-is", pay cash and close quickly. Often, this is vital to be able to pay medical bills, move a surviving spouse into a more suitable location, or simply get the probate proceeds into the hands of the heirs quickly. The advantage of dealing with an experienced Realtor for a quick sale (instead of just accepting an individual offer from an investor) is that we get your property exposed to a NUMBER of qualified investors, not just one. This normally results in competition among them and a higher price for the real estate.
Our investors can often make offers within 48 hours on almost any property and can normally close as soon as their title search clears. Sometimes, funds can even be advanced prior to closing. Please bear in mind that timelines are often subject to factors beyond our control (such as required court filings or probate judge's approvals) but we strive to minimize these delays whenever possible.
Can you take the time to maximize the proceeds of a real estate sale for the heirs/stakeholders?
If this is the case, then we can assist you by assessing what are the best repairs/updates to be done, how much would these cost and what return you would get (what the After Repaired Value (ARV) of the property would be). We will then list and market the property aggressively to find the buyer who would pay the TOP MARKET PRICE. Too often sellers spend too much money on repairs or upgrades that have poor Return on Investment (ROI). This is where our extensive real estate and home marketing experience comes into play!
This is what we can offer! A whole, Turnkey Probate Team! OUR job is to make YOUR job as Personal Representative as simple as possible.
If You Are a Probate Attorney
We work well as a "tag team" in these situations. Typically the probate attorney has either been appointed by the court or selected by the executor / personal representative.
If you are court-appointed, then your role is usually limited to the legal issues regarding any transactions and disposal of the assets in the estate.
If you have been retained by the family or the executor/personal representative, in addition to the legal representation, your role may include an advisory role. In some cases, the family or executor will want ALL aspects of the probate to be handled completely by the attorney. In these cases, we’ll work with you as “the client” regarding the real estate, just as we would with the executor/personal representative.
We’ve taken the time to learn about the probate process (we are Certified Probate Experts) and we have built a great team to properly assist you.
As the Team Leader, I'd be happy to help by answering any questions you may have and/or connect you with local service providers you may need.
