If there is a will and it is uncontested, the initial probate process can happen pretty fast.
Call me and we can get you hooked up with an attorney.
Even if you are the executor of the will, you need the court to appoint you as the executor, before
you can sign the listing agreement.
We can get you up and running normally the same day or day after, once that happens.
In the meantime I would like to see the house, so we can be ready when you are.
I can be reached at 682-556-5821 at anytime of the day. I'm an active buyer and I enjoy helping those who need help with their real estate transactions. Give me a call would love to help you out and refer you in the right direction.

Listing the house isn't the issue. The house will need to be in your name so when you do get a buyer the title work can be done. As others have said, you want to be up front when you list the property so prospective buyers understand there could be a delay in transferring title until the probate is done.
If you need any further information you can contact me at 817-920-7700.

I have sold homes that were in a probate situation and also have a title company closer who is experienced with such. If you have further questions feel free to give me a call or send me an email.
Sorry for your loss...

You do need to consult with two or more professionals to handle your case. I will be happy to help you with the Real Estate side of the transaction, since I am a Realtor who works in your Zipcode, and not someone trying to answer this question from out of state. You need to be dealing with someone who knows the local laws. I have 31 years of experience right here in this county.
You will need to hire a lawyer to probate the Will. I can guide you in the right direction. If you are not the executor of the Will, then you cannot sign the documents. But we can discuss the details when we get together. I will help you "appraise" the property and try to get you the best possible price for it. However, if you are in a hurry "to sell it fast", then you will probably want to lower the asking price in order to make that happen.
Please call me to set up an appointment. Our consultaions are free.

I live maybe 15 minutes from the Meadowbrook area in 76112. You can market the home, but of course it would legally have to be in your name to sell. If you like, I can send you some comp's and help you get started on a sell price if you haven't already.

b) then connect with a local Realtor who can help you price the property right in that market, so that it gets
sold quickly ////
Good Luck to you!
