To get a property ready for sale after probate, follow these steps:

1. Get Legal Permission: Make sure you have the legal right to sell the property by getting a grant of probate from the court.

2. Hire a Real Estate Agent: Find a real estate agent who knows about probate sales to help you.

3. Property Valuation: Have the property professionally appraised to find out its market value. This will help set a fair price.

4. Organize Legal Documents: Ensure all necessary documents are ready, such as the will, death certificate, and probate papers.

5. Clean and Declutter: Remove personal items, clean the property thoroughly, and get rid of clutter to make the home more appealing.

6. Repairs and Maintenance: Fix any issues and perform needed maintenance to improve the property’s condition.

7. Staging: Stage the home with furniture and decorations to show its best features and help buyers imagine living there.

8. Professional Photos: Hire a professional photographer to take high-quality pictures for the listing.

9. Marketing Plan: Work with your agent to create a plan to market the property, including online listings and open houses.

10. Disclosures and Inspections: Provide any required information about the property’s condition. Consider a pre-inspection to identify and fix any issues beforehand.

11. Review Offers: Look at the offers with your real estate agent and choose the best one based on price and terms.
