Buying and selling of real estate is big business in any economy in the world. As a population increases, more houses are needed for people to live in and offices for people to work in. Despite this fact of life, real estate transactions can still be tricky transactions! Especially when it comes to probate property…
So what is a probate anyway?
A probate is a legal way of administering the property of a deceased person (decedent) if the person never left a will or if the will had specific instructions on how his or her property was to be administered after they are dead. These proceedings take place in probate courts.
How to begin the probate process for a house in Fort Myers
The probate process begins after a person dies. Soon after this, the seller is expected to inform the court, which appoints an attorney to take care of the sale. Once this is done, the attorney advertises the property just like other real estate properties. The price is based on the agent’s suggestion and also from an independent appraisal ordered by the probate court. Note: It is important for the seller to familiarize himself or herself with the property to avoid being short-changed. This can be avoided by choosing a partner in Fort Myers that knows how this process works, that would be us, NextBridge Home Solutions.
