Can I sell or short sell a Jersey City home while it's in probate?

Yes, you can sell a home while it's in probate – and in fact selling before the estate is settled can be a helpful tool if the estate or the heirs are struggling to keep up with mortgage payments.
If the house is to be sold, it’s better to get it done quickly rather than pour estate or family resources into payments – especially if the house is worth less in today's market than the mortgage balance.  
In addition to other benefits, selling while there is but one executor to sign the paperwork can be much easier than waiting until two or more heirs would need to come into agreement.
If you're dealing with probate and have a house to sell, give me a call and I will connect you with an attorney that specializes in the process and as a team we can work navigate you thru things smoothly.
In addition to providing you with the current market value I can put you in touch with with my teams staging cosultant who will help with getting the house ready for market. And then, of course, I can find the buyer you seek.
