Buying and selling of real estate is big business in Daphne. As more people move here, more houses are needed for people to live in and offices for people to work in, and real estate transactions can be very risky, especially when it comes to probate property.
So what is probate anyway?
“Probate” is a legal way of administering the property of a deceased person, 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 Daphne
The probate process should begin soon after a person dies. The seller would need to inform the court, which then would appoint an attorney to take care of the sale. The attorney would advertise the property just like other real estate properties. The price would be created based on an agent’s suggestion and 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 the right partner in Daphne. Companies like Southern House Buyers LLC can help you through this process and can give you a cash offer when probate is over.
