Probate Process- What Does it Look Like to Sell a Probate Property in St Augustine?

February 5th, 2021

Are you struggling through the probate process?

Unfortunately, probate is often more complex and convoluted than it needs to be.

But at One Putt Properties, we’ve helped homeowners in almost every situation (including probate) to navigate challenges and sell their home.

So we thought we’d share some information with you about the probate process so that you know what to expect.

Here’s how it works…

File To Start Probate — First, you’ll need to submit a petition to the court to get the probate process started. You’ll need to file a valid and notarized will in addition to your application which indicates that you’re the legal executor of the estate. The court will then schedule a hearing to approve your petition. If approved, the court will open the probate case.

Provide Notice — As required by most courts, you’ll need to mail a notice that the estate is in probate to all creditors, beneficiaries, and heirs. You might even need to publish a notice in the newspaper, depending on your state.

Determine Assets & Pay Debt — You’ll also need to compile all of the estate’s assets and determine their value. Then you’ll need to analyze and pay debt.

Distribute Remaining Assets — Finally, after paying debts, you can distribute remaining assets to the appropriate beneficiaries.

Hire An Attorney — If this all sounds like too much, then you might consider hiring an attorney to help you through the process.

And once you’ve finished the probate process, if you want to sell your home quickly for cash, give us a call at (904) 299-0333 and we’ll make you a fair offer. We can buy as-is and even close in as little as two weeks!

What Our Customers Are Saying

One of the best experiences I’ve had selling a house. Was fortunate enough to work with Jacob. Everything went smooth and was able to make a deal right away. Closing was a breeze and communication was beyond expectations. I started out thinking this process was going to be a huge headache, but Jacob and his team made it really easy. Adam E.
