Property Held in a Trust or Estate
Trustees, executors, estate administrators and even family members, who are helping with assets held in a trust or estate, are faced with the task of making decisions regarding assets on behalf of family or loved ones. Sometimes estate attorneys or trustees were given the responsibility of overseeing the liquidation of assets in a timely and diligent manner. Regardless of who is helping, emotions run high and experience and understanding are paramount to making progress.
In most cases, when we work with people in these positions who have a property that needs to be sold in a timely manner, the property requires a fair amount of repairs and maintenance to bring it to marketable condition. Many people also are given this obligation without discussion and without guidance. Therefore, they are unprepared to take on all of the hassles of a typical sale including cleaning and fixing the house, interviewing agents, property showings, long escrows and the list goes on. Fortunately, when we come across people in this situation, we are usually able to help.
We buy properties directly from owners and if a property fits our buying criteria we can have a fair offer for consideration on the same day we receive a call. Since we are direct buyers, owners benefit from bypassing all of the hassles of a typical sale don’t have to pay any commissions or fees. On most transactions, we will even pay all of the closing costs.
We buy properties in as-is condition - owners do not need to do any cleaning or fixing. We have worked with owners in a countless number of situations (vacant, tenant occupied, structural problems, etc.) and we almost always find a win/win solution. We can close on the day of an owner’s choice and if there are other needs, we are flexible and will do what I can to help. All of our transactions take place with nationally recognized escrow and title companies to ensure a smooth transaction.
You may be thinking about selling a property or helping someone, but all parties involved might not be quite ready for any number of reasons. We understand. We are always available to discuss your circumstances and answer questions. We have dealt with many owners that were likely in the same or similar situations to yours and we can use our experience to help brainstorm options that you may not know exist.

"As trustee, I had the task of responsibly liquidating assets. Blake Buys Homes bought the only house in the trust and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional, no-nonsense buyer. There was no negotiating needed, just a fair offer and a closing time frame that gave the family members the time they needed."
