Questions to Ask While Interviewing a Real Estate Agent for A Probate & Trust Real Estate Sale

When you have been faced with the arduous task of selling real estate for your dearly departed or have been nominated by the court to handle the Estate, it's important to use the most qualified and experienced real estate agent when selling the property. Selling real estate can be overwhelming in the first place and selling a property through the probate system can be even more complex.

There are many professional real estate agents, so it's to your advantage to list the property with an experienced real estate agent that specializes in the sale of real property through probate and trust. The probate process differs dramatically from a typical real estate transaction, thus it's important to interview agents and find out if they really understand and know how to market and sell a probate & trust property.

Here are some examples of questions you may consider using when interviewing a real estate agent:

1. How long have you been selling properties through probate & trust?

2. How is selling a probate property different from a traditional transaction? How can I expect it to be different?

3. How will you market the probate property?

4. What kind of documents will I have to sign to list the property?
