Personal property in Sacramento Probate sale is a diverse topic. I have sold a probate property with a truck, all the contents, and building supplies included in the purchase. Is this common? No, not common at all, but things can happen in a Probate sale based on the Trustee or Estate Administrator’s instructions. Always run this by your legal team first, before attempting personal property transfers within a real estate sale.
The photo posted above I took while my client, the administrator of this estate, was on site. She has been a real trooper while working through so many issues. She is kind and generous to all the workers, saying so many times the endless, “thank-you.” It takes fortitude and courage to administer an estate. It is a huge undertaking to clean up the remnants of a lifetime. She suited up in coveralls and marched into whatever we faced. Her husband was there every step of the way, he is handy with tools and supportive. Every time something was needed, off to home depot, he went without a complaint. I feel blessed to know these two exceptional human beings.
July 2020 Sacramento County housing market update written by Josh Amolsch, is a terrific post, very informative, ENJOY!
Come January 2021, we may look back at the year 2020 and conclude that “unprecedented” was the word of the year. I can think of a few more words too, but that would be for a different blog. That word comes in to play for the July 2020 Sacramento housing market update in a couple of areas. But the driving factor here is nothing new. Inventory is the culprit of rising prices. Take a look at the Month of Inventory for July 2020. I could not find one instance in the last 15 years when the Months of Inventory was at .7 months except for July 2020. Unprecedented. This is down 46.5% from July 2019. Sacramento’s real estate has proven to be very strong during the COVID-era. Stronger than ever, in fact.
So, you want to be a probate specialist selling real estate? There is always some sort of issues with title and or the heirs. These matters can take months to get straightened out. Meanwhile, you are talking with the attorney and the seller regularly moving toward having keys made and meeting the locksmith, that is once you have the court orders.
Next, you hope you can get in to evaluate the property, except when squatters are living in the property as per the photo below. This is a real photograph after calling 911 at one of my new probate properties. The Sacramento Police department showed up, and they were so very caring and helpful. Do not ever go inside with squatters as you do not know if they have weapons or are on dangerous narcotics. Always call the men and women in blue as this needs to be handled by the professionals.
The true cost of waiting to buy a home in Sacramento, as written by our fantastic lender, Dan Tharp, with Guild Mortgage., Enjoy. — JaCi Wallace.
I know shopping for a home today is hard work and very frustrating at times. Inventory is low, and demand is high – It may take many offers, and a few tension-filled bidding sessions, before you land that home. Buyers can quickly get discouraged and say, “I am tired of this. I am just going sign a new rental lease instead and try this again in 6 months to a year”.
Ever wonder how to price rural property for sale in northern California when there are no comparable sales? This is not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure. First, there are so many factors, one being construction type, like a log home. If you’re lucky enough to find another log home, that is a start; however, it won’t be the same size or may not have your desired 360-degree wrap-around porch. Again, it is a start. But the acreage — is it usable? Is it functional for raising animals or vineyards? So many variables.
