So what is probate anyway?
Probate is a legal way of administering the property of a deceased person (decedent) if the person never left a will or if the will had specific instructions on how his or her property was to be administered after they are dead. In other words, the process is overseen by the court to protect the deceased party and ensure that their will, assets, and wishes are distributed and interpreted correctly.
How to begin the Asheville Probate Process for Houses
The probate process begins after a person dies. Soon after this, the seller is expected to inform the court. Once the court is informed they will ask the administrator of the estate to help fulfill the will and or take care of any outstanding debts. In this scenario we are focusing on the Asheville probate process for houses. There are two options for the estate or for the administrator to make; 1. Keep the house 2. Sell the house. Before making a final decision on which route you plan on going make sure to check with the clerk of courts to confirm that you have the ability to do either one. If you decide that selling the house is the best fit you can Click the link here, fill out the form and we’ll help you get started now.

Okay, I decided to sell my property, now what?
The first thing to do is to make a decision on how and when you want to sell the property. Are you wanting to clean up the property and give it new life to list it on the market or are you wanting to sell the home in ‘As-Is’ condition? Once that decision is made it changes who your buyer can or might be. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions on what those differences might be.
