You CAN Avoid Much of the Probate Hassle

There Really Is a Simple, Easy Way to Sell a House in Probate 


We make a fair, direct, cash offer – with a quick close – to cut through the tangle of 
probate and listing hassles. All with little effort on your part. 


Consider the multitude of procedural obstacles with a traditional listing . . .  

Here’s how it generally . . . and slowly . . . works (with variations from state to state.
  1. Locate an appraiser and get the property appraised.
  2. Get a petition from the court to sell real estate and then fill it out, including all the many details about the property sale, being sure to attach the independent appraisal. And then you wait . . . for the probate court’s approval that will allow the sale.
  3. List the property, endure the showings and people traipsing through the house, and hope you get an offer. You also have to inform a buyer that the sale is conditional on court confirmation.
  4. Petition the court for a hearing to confirm the sale and wait the standard 20 to 40 days.
  5. Secure a deposit of 10% of the purchase price before the scheduled hearing. 
  6. Post the fact of the sale and the offered price in a local newspaper. 
  7. Attend the hearing, suffer through the bidding process, and wait for the winner to present to the court cashier’s check for the deposit. 
  8. If the winner is a new buyer, refund the original buyer’s deposit. 
  9. Sign the contract and close the sale, ensuring that the buyer’s financing covers the cost of the property

     and that all of it goes to the estate. 

And even more headaches . . .  


Loan issues – You will, of course, have to wait for a buyer to qualify for a loan. But if the house has any problems, a buyer probably won’t be able to get financing, even a government-backed loan. 

Ongoing expenses – The longer that house sits unsold, the more it will cost the estate and you in the long run. Even without mortgage payments, you’re still looking at homeowner’s insurance, liability insurance, property taxes, utility bills, maintenance expenses, and so on. 

Emotional stress – You’re probably dealing with probate owing to the passing of a parent or other close relative. 
So there’s already the emotional turmoil and stress, which the long standard listing process only intensifies.

The Sierra Group had been recommended to us, and as soon as we had our first contact with Ben Souchek, we knew that we had made the right decision. He personally handled the entire transaction – (having the house inspected) and explaining each step through closing, which went quickly, with terms and cash exactly as agreed upon, and with almost no effort on our part.

Your quote was within the parameters I had determined in my study of real estate agent sale. The major selling point was the very short period needed to complete the sale of my house. The second selling point was that there were no showings required and the repairs that would be required to obtain the money in hand I wanted would be done by you with no involvement required on my part. The third selling point was your involvement and professionalism.

Just a note to thank you and your Sierra Group (and assistants) for easing the process of selling my home. Specifically your enterprise has saved me a great deal of time, energy, and the expense of paying the substantial prices of commissions, inspections, repairs, escrow, closing costs, warranties, etc.
