probate agent: WHAT IS THE DOWNSIDE OF WORKING PROBATE REAL ESTATE - 12/17/14 10:54 AM
I often receive this question from agents and investors who are interested in Probate Homes but want to know more than just the upside.  This is smart as everything has a downside and what you do is weigh the upside to the downside than make a choice to jump in or not.  So here we go....
DOWNSIDE OF WORKING PROBATE HOMES:
I have worked on probate homes where after a month or 2 of negotiating with the estate and ready to ratify a win/win offer when someone comes in from left field and offers more and I don't even get the chance to … (0 comments)

probate agent: XMAS: TIME TO SET UP YOUR 2015 WITH PROBATE REAL ESTATE! - 12/15/14 10:31 PM
We are two weeks away from ending business for 2014 and I just have one question to ask you.  After reading my probate real estate blogs, witnessing the deals we have been doing all year! my question is HOW MANY PROBATES DID YOU DO? 
The picture below tells a very powerful story!  "THE 91 MILLION REASONS YOU NEED TO LOOK AT PROBATE REAL ESTATE" is the amount of Probate Home Sales Volume which went through my MLS board in one year!    The really great part of this is these where just the MLS probates and I don't work with MLS Probates. … (0 comments)

probate agent: MY $100 XMAS GIFT TO ANY ACTIVIE RAIN MEMBER WHO TAKES ADVANTAGE - 12/08/14 12:15 AM
As we close out 2014 I have again positioned my business to close strong (2 double ends and a listing sold all probates ($60K, $33K and $4700) in fee's which will close out my very strong probate real estate year. Working Probate Homes also has me with 2 double ends closing (Jan $28K and Feb $30K) plus a short sale probate (8700 Jan) so my 2015 is going to jump off fantastic!    I'm not trying to impress anyone but just show what probate real estate can do for any agents business if they learn something new and work smart not … (0 comments)

probate agent: DOES $1.1M PROBATE SALE NOT ON MLS WITH 6% FEE SOUND GOOD! - 12/04/14 10:27 PM
Welcome to my world!  The Probate Home niche has really paid off for me not only with 25+ years of Top Producer status BUT because now in my mid 60's I'm creating a niche within my probate niche which will allow me to Earn Six Figures on 4 Deals per year when I semi retire in 2 years.
THIS NICHE WITHIN MY NICHE IS:  $900K UP PROBATE HOMES AND $54K PAYDAYS
I just  made an offer yesterday for my client (A real estate broker) who wants this property (Prime Peninsula SF Bay Area) for herself for personal reasons and made an offer … (1 comments)

probate agent: REAL ESTATE AGENTS RETIREMENT & STOCK OPTIONS WEBINAR - 11/29/14 10:41 AM
Ok as we close out the 2014 Year as normal I work hard Nov and Dec and start my New Year (Jan) with a boom!   3 Closings for Dec with 2 of them Double End Sales Plus 4 Closings for Jan with 2 Double ends or 6 sides!     This is the best time of the year  especially if you work with 90% investors like I do and again my Niche is buying Probate Homes direct from the Estate and not on the MLS.
RETIREMENT!  This word has never really impressed me as who in real estate really ever … (0 comments)

probate agent: The Skinny on working with Probate Attorneys - 11/26/14 08:55 AM
For the past 25 years one of the biggest hurdles I had to work out was having my offer approved by the estates attorney.  My Probate Real Estate success was not going to happen if I could not figure out how to work with the estate attorney as 90% of the time the petitioner/executor is going to want the estate attorney to review the offer before they sign.  As a Probate Agent representing buyers or as an investor buying on your own you need to understand how to do this.
     Once I sit down with the petitioner/executor to go over … (0 comments)

probate agent: MOVING UP TO $900K TO $2M PROBATE HOMES - 11/25/14 12:01 AM
This was a no brain-er for me after I listed my first Million Dollar Probate Homes this year I couldn't buy at our price.  This was in the Peninsula of the Bay Area where homes are Pricey, In Demand with low inventory.   The amount of business I generated with this home was beyond my belief as I have been working in the starter Home Probate Market for all these years.
Not only did I double end this home for a Fat Fee but I picked up a half dozen Million Dollar buyers (Most flippers, some retail move in) but the Hot Ticket … (0 comments)

probate agent: AGENTS! I WENT FROM 70 HOURS PER WEEK TO 20 HR AND INCREASED MY INCOME! - 11/21/14 08:47 AM
OK, many ask me how much time do I spend doing what I do with Probate Real Estate (Flipping, Wholesaling, Double Ending Sales, Listing and Farming).   You may think I'm working 12 hours a day for what I do but what if I tell you I average less than 20 hours per week doing my probate system!  
When I was on the MLS treadmill and working retail buyers trying to beat other agents on MLS listings or being 1 of 4 agents interviewed for a SFR overpriced listing I was working 70 hours per week probably like most of … (0 comments)

probate agent: HOW DOES 6% COMMISSION COMING INTO A SALE AND 2% GOING OUT SOUND TO YOU....CHECK IT OUT! - 11/20/14 07:25 PM
http://www.dfprobatesystem.com/
YES!  This is what I do now in my real estate business.  I don't have to buy for myself any longer, worry about work crews or investors money I just sell the property (probate) I find working my 25 year system to my investor (1 client) and I am earning huge.
I don't touch anything under $500K so my commission coming in is $30K and since we have to net my investor a min. of 10% on his money we are going out around $600K  and I'm receiving another 2% for the listing after Rehab.   So each deal I'm earning $42K … (2 comments)

probate agent: Let Me tell you about Probate Court Confirmations - 11/20/14 07:25 PM
Remember, my focus over the last 25+ years I have been doing Probate Real Estate both as an Investor and Probate Agent has been with using the I.A.E.A to take my probate deals out of the court confirmation process.  This process (California) although full of red tape and many hoops to jump through is what most investors and agents know of in the Probate Investing world.  So let's talk about it.
     I assume you all understand under the old California Court Confirmation process there is a 10% deposit the buyer is required to place in escrow before the estate attorney … (0 comments)

probate agent: DON'T PLACE BIG DEPOSIT IF YOUR CONTRACTING WITH PROBATE PR BEFORE THEIR APPROVAL - 11/10/14 09:48 AM
Many times I will enter into a signed offer with the PR who hasn't been approved yet as Executor or Administrator.   WHAT!  I know some of you who know probate may be saying "The PR can't sign the sales agreement until they are approved"   and you are correct to some degree but I'm going to take deals away from you if you go up against me on a Probate Home and you don't know this information.
TIP:  The PR can sign your offer all you do is make the offer subject to the PR's Approval as Executor/Adminstrator by a particular … (3 comments)

probate agent: DOES GARYD EVER LOOSE POTENTIAL PROBATE HOMES TO OTHERS - 11/06/14 07:37 AM
YES!  I do Ha. Working Probate Homes is just like working anything else in Real Estate, Expireds, Farming, REO's, TS Sales, Short Sales, Buyers Only the difference is this Probate Niche I work in has less competition as most agents and investors don't understand the Probate Law and how to use it to earn Six Figures per year.
I still loose deals where I might have made my offer for myself or client and the Estate receives a better offer.  I just limit the times this happens by taking most objections off the table during my initial presentation.  I touch on … (0 comments)

probate agent: Here is How You Can Add 15 Sides a year to your production. - 10/29/14 01:29 PM
In my Real Estate Business I'm often asked how many probate homes can one expect to do following my program.  This is a tough question to answer for someone else so what I do is tell them what I have been averaging based on my time schedule, number of probate files and market place.  As a Probate Agent if you have 60- to 80 new files each month with real estate like I do then your expectation should be the same with the exception being how good you are compared to me.  You may be better and do more.  Hope this … (1 comments)

probate agent: How Much $$ Can YOU make working Probate Real Estate - 10/28/14 07:15 AM

I have this question come up time and time again and it is just a very tough question to pin point since there is an element to all this I can’t control for you and that IS YOU and YOUR WORK ETHIC!
Some will be too anxious and if no deals come about in the first 2 months they’re out of the game and looking for the next golden ticket.  This is not what probate real estate is about.
There are those who don’t have any general real estate experience and when they can’t put a deal together when it’s … (0 comments)
