The Sale of your Probate Property Services
- We are experts in the probate sale under the probate code and trust law which also falls under the California Probate Code
- Court Confirmed Sales Specialists who are experts at creating auction like demand for top dollar to your estate
- Independent Administration of Estates Act- I.A.E.A. a.k.a. Full Authority Sales. These too have rules which require expertise to maximize the estate’s proceeds.
- Trust Sale without court confirmation.
- Trust Sales requiring court confirmation…Requires we have a cup of coffee to discuss. I’ll buy (Family dynamics can be special at times)!
Estate Sales Services
Depending on the Value and Size of an Estate the needs may widely vary. Either way, we have you covered.
- High Value Estates (2 Million+) require experts in “Fine Collectibles” and Auction Services which have the right audience to make the estate the most money.
- Smaller Value Estates ($500k to $2Million) may have “Fine Collectibles” but may not have enough for an Auction House to serve, so we turn to Estate Sale Companies or Consignment Companies for estates with some valuables but which lack the size or scale to sell Via Auctions.
- Hybrid Estate Sales – These companies hire local estate sale professionals who assist with inventory but sell items using Online Auctions which advertise your items, provide a preview date, and offer platform. When the auction ends, the bidding closes and a date is set for the winning bidders to pick up their purchases. Funds are usually wired or mailed to the estate account. This is becoming the fastest growing method.
Trash Out Services
We have local companies who can clean out an entire home when there is little value in personal property. As the personal representative, you should always exercise caution and do a thorough inspection before discarding. Many a lost treasure has been lost in probate estate due to lack of knowledge about what types of things are valuable. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure… So pay attention to these if you find any of the following:
- Card Collections (sports, gaming, authors)
- Stock Certificates – Mail from Brokerage houses
- Old motorcycles
- Original but old vehicles
- Bond Certificates
- Eviction for Rent Control Ordinance Tenants
- Family members with no rental agreement (Referred to as a Tenant at Will)
- Standard Eviction for non-payment or Section 8 in Violation of terms (i.e. unnamed tenants, term of lease violations, etc)
