Estate Sales

It’s inevitable. Everyone at some point will need help selling a home that is wrapped up in an estate. Let the Aimee Ness Realty Group guide you through the process.

What do Estates have to do with real estate? 

Most often homes need to be sold to close out an estate. Sometimes a family member will choose to purchase the home, or the home will be put on the market to be sold. Working with an experienced agent makes selling a home in an estate much less stressful.


Having an experienced agent on your side is important when selling a home due to bankruptcy. Not only being able to price the home properly, and setting realistic expectations, but actually being able to negotiate a timely sale is key. Due to the home needing approvals to accept an offer means adding timeframes to offers that will keep contracts in place. Having an agent who knows the ins and outs of these documents will ensure a more timely sale, with fewer setbacks.

Another important component of selling a home in an estate would be repairs. Typically repairs are not negotiated during an estate sale and the home is sold “as is”. This also protects the family because they usually do not know the full condition of the home, as they were not living there. An experienced agent such as Aimee Ness, can put the documents in place to protect those in charge of selling the home.


Estate real estate sales have many moving parts and communication is of the utmost importance to get a home to the closing table. Communication with attorneys, sellers and other third parties, such as lenders and other agents will need to be continuous to keep everything on track for the seller. The Aimee Ness Realty Group has systems in place to make sure no ball is ever dropped and to keep the sale moving forward.


As you can imagine additional documentation is needed for the sale of a home involved in an estate. Aimee Ness has a system in place to make sure all documents are filed properly and never lost. This system also allows for electronic signatures to facilitate the signing of documents and the sharing of documents with appropriate parties.

The home is for sale, now what? 

Once all the documents have been signed by the appropriate people the home is ready to be on the market. At this point the public has access to the information and photos of your home. It is important to keep your home in “show ready” condition as best as possible. However, this is your home, and you live there and people understand that. If the home is empty, Aimee Ness can give you some pointers about how to stage it to highlight the property’s features.
