Asking the right questions to navigate complexity
Estate sales involve many complexities that executors often do not have insight into until they’re deep in the process. A variety of factors including tenants, unpaid property bills, mortgages, or necessary repairs can all complicate an estate sale. We work with you and your lawyer to ask and answer all the right questions, reducing the burden on you and ensuring the best return for your estate.

Listing exclusively with us provides additional privacy, keeping your estate within our internal network of sales representatives, investors, and clients. We offer these options without compromising on results, enabling you to choose the path that’s best for you while ensuring we obtain the best price for the home.

What does Probate mean?
Probate is a procedure to ask the court to either: give a person the authority to act as the estate trustee of an estate, to confirm the authority of a person named as the estate trustee in the deceased’s Will and to formally approve that the deceased’s Will is their valid last Will.
What is an Opinion of Value?
As a part of the probate process, a lawyer will request up to three reports from realtors that provide a market analysis of what the estate/home is worth. We include these reports as a part of our services when working with clients.
Are there taxes payable on an estate?
Generally, there are three taxes that are applicable when finalizing an estate. A probate tax (approximately 1.5% of the overall value of the estate), personal income taxes due and income taxes due on any trusts. More often than not, these are paid prior to any estate distribution to beneficiaries.
We recommend that all of our clients speak with their lawyers and accountants to better understand their own circumstances and the above is to be used as a general guide.
We have established a trusted network of lawyers and accountants who specialize in estates and would be happy to put you in touch with the right people.
