Seeking out professionals with adequate knowledge of probate and real estate is crucial when determining how to sell probate real estate. It is important to work with professionals who understand what you are going through emotionally and what your business needs are.
Assuming that you have already filed the petition for probate, the Superior Court will issue the type of authority granted to the executor. “Limited authority” means the executor must have court supervision for selling real estate of the estate and other acts. “Full Authority” means the executor is allowed to sell the estate property without going through court confirmation. The next thing is to make sure you are issued Letters Testamentary. Letters Testamentary are necessary because these are the documents that allow the title company to accept the signature of the executor to transfer title to the new buyer. Your real estate professional should be well versed on court procedure so that they understand the flow and that they also understand the current real estate market.
