If you were granted full authority to administer the decedent’s estate, under the IAEA, you don’t have to follow this rule. Normally, as you may have heard, the law requires the price of probate property from an estate to be at least 90 percent of the appraised value. Under the IAEA, personal representatives granted full authority can use their own discretion for the terms of the sale of property.

Of course, they still maintain a fiduciary duty to all heirs to make sure to get the most money out of the sale as possible. It’s just that with full authority granted, the sale isn’t subject to court supervision. Also, with full authority granted, the sale isn’t subject to the sometimes tedious overbid process.
