Probate with full authority closed, this property had a tenant which was not cooperating with showing or moving out, in fact he removed my for sale sign. The administrator of the estate ended up evicting him, we had the property on the market and were accepting offers while the eviction process was also rolling. We accepted an offer, evicted the tenant and delivered a vacant free of debris property to a new family.
Some of my client's properties need major cleaning up and hauling. But no task is to large, it can be done!
The amount of junk is sometimes surprising! Some of the junk can be recycled and some of it can also be sold to the right type of buyer by having estate sales.
I come across interesting items in my client's homes. In this case we have a combination stereo and television furniture piece and a stove from what seems to be the 50s or 60s. There is antique shops and vintage appliance stores that I call and let know about these items but strangely there is not the amount of interest that you figure people should have? Many times they want them for free or nearly free?
Businesses that refurbish and re-sell these items take storage space, time to sell and consumer demand into consideration before offering to purchase.
People who see these items think they are neat and may think about having them for themselves but when they start thinking about where they would keep it and their usefulness and practicality they have second thoughts about buying them.
I still think eventually I will find someone who will value items such as these and will appreciate me letting them know about them and having my clients make some money by selling them. If you know of someone who appreciates items such as these please let me know.

This is the dining room of a home that went through the California probate process and the administrator of the estate hired me to sell the property.
The court appointed appraiser gave it a higher value because he assumed the property was in a habitable condition. It did not have a water heater, a portion of the house was missing drywall, and there was much deferred maintenance therefore the property did not qualify for financing.
I have sold several fixer uppers, Investors frequently call me to ask if there is something available for them to invest in. This property had several cash offers, it was sold to an investor who assumed responsibility for the city presale inspection and took the property "as is".
Sellers of fixer upper homes are sometimes unaware of the interest that investors may have in their property and unaware of the potential that the property may have. I have spoken to sellers who have been short changed by selling to an investor without giving the property exposure and having the opportunity to choose from several cash offers.
This is a picture of the Norwalk courthouse this morning at the
hearing to confirm the sale of real property. My client is the administrator of the estate and decided to sell a condo that belonged to the now deceased brother. There was one overbidder that showed up, the minimum overbid was set at
$226,250 and the original buyer defended herself and kept the property for $228,500. The judge started at increments of $1000 and then down to increments of $100. The buyer was represented by another local realtor, now we move forward
to closing this transaction and go on to the next!
