The process of buying or selling a home is always complex. When dealing with the various expenses and complications that come with selling a trust or probate property, those issues can become even more daunting.

For anyone wading into this process, the goal of sale should be to maximize the benefits of the family involved in the proceedings. In California, guidelines relating to probate matters are very specific so that neither the sellers nor the buyers are left in the lurch. Still, with these sales often arising unexpectedly, having some guidance provided by a professional realtor can be invaluable.

People who are well versed in real estate investing see short sales regularly and understand how tedious these matters can be. If you are unfamiliar with the world of trust and probate sales, working with a COMPASS real estate team like Andrews & Roberts will make the process much more manageable. Selling and purchasing probate properties is different in Los Angeles County than in other parts of the country, so it’s imperative that you work with someone who has direct knowledge of the California Probate Code.
