Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty’s latest release is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to create a one-stop educational hub and resource for individuals and families going through probate and in need of expert guidance.
In particular, the guide explains that probate, which is a process overseen by the Orphans’ Court in Maryland, begins when the inheriting party petitions the court for approval to open the deceased family member’s estate.
Readers will learn about the crucial role the executor, who is usually named in the will or court-appointed, plays in facilitating a smooth probate real estate transaction and administration of the estate. As the guide notes, this individual is responsible for obtaining the letters of administration and appraising the property – two vital tasks needed for a house in probate to be sold.
Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty recognizes the difficulties many beneficiaries face regarding selling their inherited property, especially in Maryland, where probate laws can be complex and confusing. That’s why it recommends working with realtors who understand the local market and can help them effectively market their probate property.
The firm, led by Marc Cormier, a renowned probate realtor in Maryland, DC, and Virginia, helps clients maximize their property’s market value through a suite of proven and cost-effective strategies. The realtor streamlines the entire process, leveraging its network of professionals and as-is cash offer services for a quick sale.
Cormier states, “Losing a loved one is never easy, and the legal process that follows can add to the stress and complexity of an already difficult time. If the deceased person owned a house or other real estate, it must go through the probate process before it can be sold. Our goal is to make the process easy for you and your family.”
