Update Probate Real Estate News

We have recently had 3 homes sell in probate court. As a part of our Sanborn Team Real Estate Marketing Plan we had advertised the court date and the amount of the first over bid. We did not have any over bidding on any of these properties. We believe it is a reflection of the current probate real estate market.

The opposite is true of other properties that we have recently placed on the market. We have worked very hard with the sellers on pricing their real estate very competitively and are having multiple offers on the properties and in many cases getting more then the property was listed for.

Currently it is very difficult to establish fair market value for a property. When a property is listed for sale it is competing with properties that are REOs (real estate owned by the bank) and short pays. These properties are often being sold for less then the recent comparables, and, unfortunately, these sales are depressing the values of the real estate market.

To learn more about our marketing plans, please visit our web site -- -- and browse through the various articles that we have posted.
