Preparing a Trust or Probate Property For Sale

Many times the houses that are sold through probate or trust are usually full of furniture and personal belongings of the decedent. As the Administrator or Trustee the process of getting the house prepared to go on the market can be a daunting task. It is even harder when you have a full time job and a family to care for. And it can be even harder when you don't live in the area and have to spend your weekends and vacation days cleaning out the property.

We understand that dividing up personal belongings among the family is one job and it can be difficult. With the remaining personal property it is hard to tell if you have junk or treasure. Regardless of your situation, we at The Sanborn Team understand what you are going through and are here to assist you in the entire process.

We have resources and professionals that can help you with this. We can recommend several specialists that can sell the personal treasures and we have professionals to recommend that can hall away the junk and cleaning crews that will make the home sparkle.

We only recommend that you do the bare minimum when it comes to preparing the property to go on the market. It's important to leave the property in its present "as is" condition and let the buyer discover the condition of the property through inspections. Even though you may think a coat of pain might help, you may unintentionally conceal a defect and conceal the condition of the property.

At The Sanborn Team we make the process of selling the property seamless and smooth. We guarantee that we can make this a totally stress-free experience. For more information about our services please visit our website at or call us directly at 310-777-2858.
