Depending on the amount of authority granted an executor, probate real estate properties are classified as either “Court Confirmation Not Needed” or “Needs Court Confirmation.” First of all, if an Executor was given full authority, they have the right to sell real estate property without going before the court. So, these sales aren’t exactly like standard sales, but they progress similarly. See, you will need some special changes in disclosures, but as realtors specializing in probate, we’ll get you all the documentation you need. If the Executor was granted only “Limited Authority,” things get a little more complicated. Plus, you need court approval for the sale.

Needs Court Confirmation

If your probate property is categorized as “Needs Court Confirmation,” there are some extra hoops to jump through, but we’ll help you every step of the way. Keep in mind, a Probate Referee will establish a value on the property. The accepted offer has to be at least 90 percent of this value before it’s accepted. Once accepted, your probate attorney will schedule a hearing and go from there. If you need a probate attorney, we can refer you to one of the top probate attorneys that we trust.
