One plus side of buying probate real estate is motivated sellers. There is often a sense of urgency behind selling probate properties. Heirs generally don’t want to own the home they inherited. In the meantime, taxes must be paid and general upkeep must be maintained. This gives buyers of probate homes a bit more bargaining power than they would have with a traditional home sale.

Probate Sellers Are Motivated Sellers

Heirs don’t want to have to put in improvements to sell the probate real estate they inherited. Sometimes, they don’t even live nearby. A quick, easy sale is more important than holding off for top dollar for typical sellers of probate real estate. Plus, it’s not just taxes heirs are dealing with. Remember, every month that home doesn’t sell is also often a month of electricity and water payments and a month of lawn care payments. So, probate home sellers are usually very motivated sellers. Often, you can save sometimes tens of thousands and purchase a home with instant equity.

That’s the difference between sellers and motivated sellers.
