John and Carrie’s brother Robert passed away, leaving the family home and all the personal property in Encinitas to be sold through the San Diego probate process. The San Diego probate beneficiaries, Carrie lives in Colorado and John lives in Florida. John was appointed by the San Diego probate courts as the San Diego Executor.
Since all the details of the San Diego probate are published in a local San Diego newspaper, John’s contact information was easily available. As a result, he was receiving many phone calls and much mail from people interested in the San Diego probate house. He was beginning to feel harassed by the aggressiveness of San Diego real estate agents wanting to list the probate property for sale and San Diego investors that were offering cash for the San Diego probate house.
San Diego Executor John was considering an as-is offer from a San Diego cash investor at $440,000 because he thought that would be the quickest and easiest way to sell. He traveled to San Diego and after our meeting at the Encinitas probate house, he chose to offer the San Diego house for sale on the Sandicor Multiple Listing Service.
His decision proved to be the best step for the San Diego estate for several reasons. John was able to return to his home in Florida and know that he had all the help he needed selling the probate house in San Diego and just as important, as promised, we received multiple cash offers. Ultimately Executor John accepted an as-is cash offer of $480,000.
John was relieved that the San Diego probate sale had gone so smoothly and because of offering the house to all potential San Diego buyers, generated a whopping $40,000 more than he had originally been offered by the San Diego investors.
