Case Study:

Freedom Home Buyers has purchased many inherited and probate homes over the years but one recent case study stands out. Three sisters Margaret, Julia and Barbara were in the process of probating the estate of their late parents. The property had been in the family for over forty years and had been vacant for almost 16 years as their parents were in assisted living facilities.  To make maters worse the Jacksonville house was filled with personal property similar to hoarders as it had been used for storage.

Up keep, maintenance, property taxes, insurance, lawn care and risk of vandalism where constant concerns and expenses for the three sisters.  They had spent countless weekends, vacations and holiday’s caring for this property………can you imagine mowing a vacant houses yard for almost 20 years?

If you are facing a similar situation, caring for an inherited property and need to sell your house during probate, understand that this is very common.

To complicate the situation even more, due to the amount of time the property was vacant, serious deterioration of the house had taken place.  For example, the roof was partially collapsed and there was some serious foundation cracks that had made the sisters question if the home was salvageable, much less safe to be in now.  They feared that the house would need to be demolished.  This was upsetting due to the fact that the house had been in the family for generations. While they didn’t want to live in it, they also didn’t want to see it torn down.

Freedom Home Buyers was able to step in quickly and help them with some answers.  Our team determined quickly that the house was salvageable. We gave them the piece of mind that the house would be renovated and that another family would get to enjoy it for years to come.

The family explained at closing that they went with us for several reasons:

  • Professionalism
  • Humanization
  • Sensitivity
  • That we set ourselves apart from the “stack.”

Our Acquisitions Specialists worked closely with the family from day one.  We were sure to answer all their questions, help them understand the process and help them find the best possible solution to their situation. The key is to be aware of he core need to sell your house during probate.  We were careful to be empathetic to their situation… but also to remember that they were counting on our expertise to push this deal through.  In the end, we were able to make the whole transaction as lucrative as possible for the three sisters.  They had nothing but good things to say to us and got a big old check to boot.
