Let me tell you guys about our last deal. It was a Probate deal, the seller had inherited a house in Oakland and needed to sell it fast! The house was old and quite frankly ….uninhabitable.
Let’s call our seller “Sandy” because I don’t want to use her real name. Sandy had been named “executor” of her brother Damon’s estate. That was the information I had just received over the phone. She called me to tell me that she has been appointed by the family to administer his estate and she wanted my advice on how to sell an inherited house in Oakland and the laws guiding selling a house in probate in Oakland. She said her father was a cool-headed, unassuming older gentleman who had lived in Oakland, Ca. For the last 15 years but sadly, he had passed away about a year ago. In the meantime, the family had been figuring out what to do with his house. She contacted me online by filling out a quick 30-second form about the property itself and I called her right away. I was to meet with her in 2 days as she was coming in from Missouri just for a few days to help sort out selling the inherited house in Probate in Oakland.
I called her while I sat at my table at snow white coffee, (I love this place, it is my usual lunch workspace, they serve the best coffee in all of Oakland, I suggest you try it out!) I thought about the options available for her. She was seeking my advice on the matter at hand knowing that as a professional house buyer who specializes in buying Oakland houses in Probate fast she would be selling her Oakland house in Probate. And not only have it sold….but more importantly, she would have it sold to someone who could afford to buy the house she inherited in Oakland and needed to sell fast.
As my thoughts continued to trail on Sandy and her family, it raised a few thoughts of concern in me and I considered the many families that are going through a similar challenge and most times, not having the required knowledge to deal with the grief as well as executing the Will if there is any. Most of the clients that come to me, come knowing absolutely nothing of how to go about selling a house in probate in Oakland or how they can sell an inherited house in Oakland.
I have had the privilege of advising a lot of people on what to do and steps to take when they inherit houses from a deceased parent or relative. Some of these houses are quite run down and may have been uninhabited for some stretch of time. Some have not been updated in decades. If you are looking to at selling an inherited house in Oakland, then look no further.
There are various reasons why the family of a deceased would opt to sell the inherited property of a loved one. Some are looking to stop payment of taxes on the property. Or the property may have been in a state of disrepair for a very long time and could be very dated as there may not have been any update on facilities for a long time. Some others just can’t deal with the grief and don’t want one more hassle to deal with, or have no option but sell. I have bought many houses in Probate in Oakland and I am still the number one trusted partner of people looking to sell an inherited house in Oakland.
In my years of experience, a clients education has been an important part of my service, and today I would like to give you some tidbits on probate and what to do when you are looking to sell an inherited house in Oakland or if you are having challenges selling a house in probate in Oakland.
First off, let us learn what probate is about. This is to give us an understanding of the workings, intent, and appreciation of the process.
“Probate is the court-supervised process of authenticating a last will and testament of the deceased made one. It includes locating and determining the value of the decedent’s assets, paying his final bills and taxes, then distributing the remainder of the estate to his rightful heirs or beneficiaries. “
In most probate cases, there is a family member who has passed on and has left the property for the family and relatives (usually children, or siblings). If the individual wrote a Will, that will have to go through a court process to confirm its authenticity and when it is confirmed, the court will issue an order that it be acted upon. When this is done, the family or “the will” (some deceased individuals determine who becomes the executors of their estate before their passing) appoints an “executor” of the estate.
The “executor” is the individual that handles all transactions pertaining to the will on behalf of the family. This is the person I always communicate within any dealings involving selling a house in probate when a seller has inherited a house in Oakland and is looking to sell that house.
Most probate cases take time depending on several factors. At the end of the process, most members of the family’s want out. We buy houses, we buy inherited houses in Oakland all of the time and help with selling a house in probate in Oakland.
For Sandy and her family, it took about a year to fully get done with the process and this is about the period most probate processes tend to last. Some are shorter while others could last much longer, the dynamics of how long it will take is dependent on a number of factors but chief amongst them is the siblings’ agreements, property tax, and possible legal troubles. With Sandy, I was able to buy her brother’s property and solve the issue of selling a house in Probate in Oakland for her. I have assisted a countless number of families and individuals to sell an inherited house in Oakland by buying their house, and I offer our professional service for many people selling a house in probate in Oakland.

Because most homes offered for sale under probate have been vacant for some stretch of time, there are sometimes homes in very bad condition. The lack of human presence allows the elements to take their toll on the property. This has been a challenge for many families with houses under probate such that by the time they are ready and done with the probate process and ready to sell an inherited house in Oakland, the properties are rundown and can seem like they have no value. Truly, the houses we buy weekly will require a large investment in renovation to bring them up to standard but don’t be dismayed by the looks of your probate house, we have bought worse.

Plus I’m feeling good today, seems like the coffee and tacos at snow white coffee got me going! So Let’s proceed.
These are some of the factors to consider when selling an inherited house in Oakland California or Selling a house in Probate in Oakland:
Firstly, to get good value from your inherited house, you would need to make a good assessment of the market to make that value decision to either sell or hold. In your consideration, you should put in perspective tax, maintenance, and monthly mortgage and utility cost versus the income from rental. Unless you have a huge trust account to cater for the expense, I would advise you sell if you do not plan to live in and you are not a professional investor. It’s just too much headache to fully rehab and rent a house if you don’t have the crew ready and the stomach to deal with tenants and leaking toilets in the middle of the night. Also, take into account that if the house is vacant the copper or A/C can be taken at any time. Especially if your house is in a rougher part of Oakland.
What is the right value for your inherited house? This is dependent on a lot of factors but let us assume that your property is not in a fairly bad state of disrepair, the ideal method to apply is to drive by similarly sold houses in Oakland and compare the sale price and how many offers they attracted. This should give you a fair idea on the value of your inherited house. Note that this is speculative and sales are usually “as is” on the day of interest and the market is constantly changing. If the house is very dilapidated and not liveable you will need to sell to a Cash buyer, because banks will not loan on properties that are not ready to be lived in.
If you are looking at selling a house in probate in Oakland, you may need the services of an attorney. You also may be required to appear in probate court for “creditor claims”. Most probate properties go through this period so it’s better you prepare in advance of the likelihood of you attending court. You also may require the services of a tax professional to walk you through the tax tightrope of selling a house in probate in Oakland.
There are several legal and tax hurdles to understand and cross and that’s why we are here. We provide a full-scale service to ensure that you get the best deal from your inherited property in Oakland and you are comfortable every step of the way when selling a house in Probate in Oakland.
One other thing you should consider is that before placing the property on the market, you should check it out yourself. If you can, then have it cleaned out. You could also look to fixing a few flaws but don’t invest too much as the value it attracts before your work on it may still be the same after you are done working on it. Never the less, the effort of cleaning it out can still pay off in a nudge upwards at the price of a few hundred dollars. If it is a Hoarder house Clear it out!

Finally, one last thing to consider when selling a house in probate in Oakland if you decide to sell to an investor like us and get a quick cash close is the buyer! Are they professionals? Will they offer you a fast close and fair price? How helpful will they be in guiding you through the probate process? Are they experienced at helping people selling a house in probate in Oakland?
