probate agent: HOW I BEAT OUT THE ESTATE ATTORNEYS AGENT FOR THE PROBATE LISTING - 01/25/15 10:38 PM
One of the hurdles you will need to overcome if you are going to be a Six Figure Probate Agent is dealing with Estate Attorneys who represent the estate you are trying to purchase (flip), Double End Sale or list.  I learned to deal with this after losing deals to agents who where good agents, some not so good but college pals, family friends or just have done business before over the years with the attorney and a comfort level developed.  It's a tough situation but if you control it and follow my system you will win most of the time and … (0 comments)

probate agent: $500K TOUGH PROBATE SALE TURNS INTO $25K FEE - 01/16/15 08:13 AM
As part of my probate system I recently made an offer for a client  to a PR on a Probate Home which needed much work, repair and updating but was a craftsman home in a Hot East Bay Area.   We couldn't move forward on the sale as the PR was not approved as administrator yet (2 weeks away) but we worked out the numbers and settled on $500K.    
The house had a upside value of $700K to $725K when rehabbed so it looked like a good one.  We entered into contract subject to her approval as Administrator and moved … (0 comments)

probate agent: HOW TO AVOID COURT CONFIRMATION WITH A PROBATE HOME SALE - 01/15/15 02:20 PM
In California which is the toughest State to work probates we have two probate procedures to sell real estate out of.   The old Court Confirmation process with 10% deposits, Court Appraisal, and Over Bidding which sucks and has kept most away from Probate R/E and then the new procedure (1987 Ha New!) which allows us to treat the sale as a regular sale without court supervision, 10% deposits, appraisals that affect the price and most important court overbidding.  You just need Letters of Testamentary or Administration, The Notice of Proposed Action (N.O.P.A) and word from the estate attorney to title … (0 comments)

probate agent: FARMING PROBATE HOMES VERSE REGULAR FARMING - 01/13/15 08:40 AM
    I want to talk about the ultimate farming system I have which is my "Level 5" income opportunity with probate Homes.   Of Jan 2nd, 2015,  my team has over 1000 probate tracking sheets in our data base which was imputed for 2014.  This is 1000+- probate cases which have real estate and all in my target search area (Bay Area).  What my team is doing is going through each PTS and finding out which sold and which did not.  I should end up somewhere around 50% or 400 to 500 P.T.S with real estate which didn't sell, some still in process … (0 comments)

probate agent: HOW TO FARM PROBATE HOMES IN YOUR AREA.. - 01/09/15 11:12 AM
In my Probate Real Estate Business my teams farms probate homes which have completed the probate process and has transferred to the heir designated by the decease to receive the home.  As a probate agent part of my monthly process is to stay in touch with these owners (Farm) and become their go to real estate agent when they do decide to sell.
Many times during the probate process the executor will not sell the property as there is just to much going on.  They complete the probate process and then the home is transferred to whomever was named in the will. It could be one person or several … (0 comments)

probate agent: HOW ONE PROBATE SALE LED TO 3 MORE IN 60 DAYS - 01/08/15 01:49 PM
This is a scenario which happens often with Probate Homes if you are working consistently and taking advantage of all the opportunities which come up.
I recently had a probate house with studio rental carrier estate I couldn't buy at my Investors price of $390K so I listed it for $470K and did my system to sell it myself.  One of the buyers who came through was a broker and it didn't work for her but in our conversation when she understood what I have been doing with Probate Homes for the last 25+ years she asked if I would find … (0 comments)

probate agent: IN PROBATE WHY WOULD AN ESTATE SELL WHOLESALE VS RETAIL - 01/08/15 01:38 PM

probate agent: WHOLESALE VERSE HIGH RETAIL PROBATE HOME SALES - 01/06/15 08:13 AM
Most of my probate business today is representing investors who will offer All Cash, As Is to the estates who have interest in moving quick, getting the house sold so they can liquidate what is usually the largest asset which then allows the probate to move through the process faster as there is now money to pay all creditors and the estate attorney.  
I often am asked why would an estate sell wholesale and leave money on the table especially in a Sellers Market.  This is a great question!  First most who ask this question are agents or investors who … (0 comments)

probate agent: WHAT IS NOTICE OF PROPOSED ACTION IN PROBATE REAL ESTATE - 12/23/14 11:12 AM
Ok, here in California and many states the Court requires when the Executor/Administrator sell the estate home through the Independent Administration of Estates Act under Full Authority that the Exec/Adm must notify any heirs with interest in the estate home the terms of the sale.   The heirs will have 15 days to contest the sale if they choose and if so the sale stops and the issue must be worked out or taken to court for court confirmation of the sale.
This is very important for your probate business as 90% of probate sales go through the I.A.E.A now so you … (0 comments)

probate agent: WHAT IS "LETTERS OF TESTAMENTARY" IN PROBATE REAL ESTATE - 12/22/14 11:07 AM
This question does come up often and I have blogged about it before but let's clear the air so agents interested in adding probate real estate to their production have an understanding.   You must know the paperwork you need and how to use it to be successful with Probate Real Estate.  It's worth it to take the time folks!
In California when a person passes what usually happens is the children of the estate, brothers, sisters, sometimes parents and spouses must deal with selling the estate home to help settle the estate (creditors) and also to distribute the final assets to the … (0 comments)

probate agent: "I'm an agent, Can Probate Help Me?" YOU WIN BIG! - 12/22/14 08:53 AM

 
Agents ask me all the time, "will your system work for me, I'm an agent not an investor" The answer is YES, you are in a great position as an agent. I created my system for me, 15 years ago and I'm an Agent/Investor.
I am asked how much can I make if I start working probate homes as an agent.  
 
This is tough to answer since there is a variable that we can't control!  YOU!    
Yes, you are really the factor which will make or break adding probate homes to your regular business.

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)

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)
