Look forward to hearing from you soon.
Prudential Collins-Maury REALTORS
Again, my condolences.
Tina Evans, Broker
I am sorry for you loss. I know from experience that settling an estate is one of life's most stressful events. I am assuming the house is in zip code 38111. I specialize in in-town properties and would be happy to help you do the research on the mortgage and discuss selling the property. Please feel free to contact me directly at 901-214-5563
First, you need to consult with a Real Estate Attorney to conduct a title search to find out any and all leins on the property. This will also reveal the current mortgage holder so that it can be paid. I know of several reputable Real Estate Attornies that I could referr you to, if you would like.
In these types of situations, Auctions can be very beneficial in selling the real estate, as well as, any or all the personal property in a timely and covenient manner. It can also maximize the sales price and make it possible for the hiers or family members to move on in life.
In most cases, this entire process can be started and closed within 30 days or less. This process also allows for the buyer(s) to pay the commissions associated with the sale rather than in coming out of the seller's pocket.
I have dealt with many situations similar to yours. Please feel free to contact me at 931-224-2228 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we may further discuss possibilities for settling your mother's estate. Again, I am truly sorry for your loss and look forward to helping you in any way that I can.
