Welcome to class today on Probate Home Selling in Orange County CA.

 We all know for some people, there are times when home selling can be challenging and selling the family home in Orange County as a probate sale (or anywhere) after a loss of a family member or loved one can be trying at best.

If you’re selling a home after the loss of a loved one it’s essential you work with the proper professional, one who can guide your through the process, one who knows the guidelines and mandated requirements in our state when it comes to probate real estate.

As a long time Broker myself I’m able to guide families through the process, in particular my immediate market area of Orange Co. and surrounding communities.

If you need a CPA or legal referrals we have other professionals available to meet you needs.

It’s also important to know in CA we have a special PROBATE SALES AGREEMENT, far different from the one we use with traditional sales. Plus it’s essential the agent you hire knows the different DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS mandated with probate/estate sales vs. the traditional home sale. We understand the role and responsibilities of a successor trustee, and worked with executors and/or personal representatives along with beneficiaries when it comes to settling an estate in Orange Co.

    With home sales starting to slow, builders are giving buyers more incentives to purchase. Some are going so far as to offer tens of thousands of dollars in cash incentives as well as free home upgrades. The rising cost of new homes – some markets have seen prices soar by double-digit percentages in recent months – and higher mortgage rates have impacted buyer demand. Builders are trying to lure them back, however, by agreeing to pay closing costs, part of the downpayment, or offer a discount on a buyer’s mortgage rate for a year or two. Some builders are also tossing in some free upgrades, such as appliances, blinds, premium flooring or garage door openers. Nearly 30 percent of sales managers at 150 homebuilders nationwide say they increased their use of incentives in September, up from 14 percent who said the same a year ago, according to a monthly survey by Wells Fargo Securities. “Everybody’s giving more incentives today than they were in the summer,” says Mark Ward, managing partner of ForeverHome LLC, a homebuilder in Raleigh, N.C. His company, for example, agreed recently to cover $4,000 in closing costs and swap out carpeting with ceramic tile and hardwood flooring at no additional cost on one of its $295,000 homes. Another builder, Houston-based David Weekley Homes, is offering up to $20,000 in incentives to buyers who purchase a home in the Tampa, Fla., area by the end of the year. Some builders aren’t even waiting for customers to ask for incentives and are advertising giveaways upfront, says Kendra Cooke, a real estate professional with Bob Parks Realty LLC in Brentwood, Tenn. While incentives can generate sales, builders also must be cautious about how many freebies they throw in, since it lessens their profit margins. “As the market goes through minor gyrations and corrections on a road to a broader recovery, we think that we will have to use incentives on a select basis,” says Stuart Miller, CEO of Lennar.
