Many of my clients choose their treasured mementos and items of real value then wonder what to do with what remains. And, much of the time executors, administrators and trustees find making decisions to sell the San Diego house easier than what to do with the decedents remaining personal items.
Many San Diego trustees, executors and administrators choose to quickly handle the removal of personal property of a San Diego decedent through a San Diego buyout instead of a time consuming planned estate sale. A San Diego estate buyout on average would take 2 weeks versus the organizing and scheduling of a San Diego estate sale that could take 6-8 weeks. Recently I’ve experienced the San Diego buyout companies scheduling 4-6 weeks out. This is causing some problems because the remaining personal property typically brings very little revenue into the San Diego estate. Experience shows that the equity in the San Diego real estate in a trust or probate is the main source income.
Putting off the preparation, marketing and sale of the San Diego real estate because of the estate personal property is not recommended. I’ve come up with a solution for this type of situation and it is donating the estate personal property to a charity. It is a more involved solution because the charities want the estate personal property boxed or bagged. This involves hiring people to complete the job of packing the San Diego estate personal property and then scheduling the removal with the San Diego charity. But, can be completed in less than 2 weeks.
Donation is a good solution, and with some advanced planning, a San Diego buyout or a San Diego estate sale could be scheduled. How? The San Diego administrator, executor or trustee can choose to work with a trust and probate real estate expert, like me, earlier in the process.
Properly preparing the San Diego house to present to San Diego homebuyers to obtain the highest price and best terms can take weeks. So why not interview San Diego real estate agents early on in the process? That way you can get the help and guidance to make the process simpler, for you.
