Probate sales with a court referee appraisal are required by the Probate Court to sell within no less than 90% of the value. Referee values are part of the I and A, “Inventory and Appraisal” completed by the referee. A referee is a court appraiser who establishes the values of estate property. These values are then made part of the document for the Probate Court called an “I and A.” The referee generally completes a drive-by exterior appraisal on vacant property. They are not always completely accurate.
When selling probate, real estate mama says: take your coat. I should have listened to her. I was booked yesterday to do a presentation on selling probate real estate in Placer County. When I left Sacramento County, the weather was fine. Upon arrival to the Auburn Holiday Inn, the weather was very chilly and windy.
When the presentation was complete, I had to drive to Colfax to check on a probate listing. We had hired a new vendor to steam clean the interior and wanted to check the quality of the work. Sometimes, when senior people live in a home for many years, they are not really able to take care of things. These type of properties can be shocking for buyers to see as they are often beyond a typical fixer upper. Our usual clean-up crew went to Colfax to bid the job two weeks ago. They immediately left and refused to do it. This lets your imagination run wild, just envision how bad it looked.

Looking for a Sacramento Probate property is often like looking for a needle in a haystack. It just so happens we have a Probate listing coming on market June first. The listing price range is in the lower three hundred thousand. It has two separate living units. These are smaller homes but, where can you buy anything with two rentals on one parcel in Sacramento? Well, look no further than Zip code 95817.
There will be a coming soon sign on the Sacramento Probate property within a few days. For more information call, Weintraub & Wallace. It’s currently occupied; however, proper notice of sale was provided to the tenants. They will be in the process of moving out. Access will not be available until the property goes live in MLS. There will be a lockbox installed on the property and Realtors can show it.
