Probate Properties Available for a Huge Discount

Studies have shown that over the next 30-40 years, baby boomers will transfer more than $30 trillion to their heirs. This transfer of wealth is unprecedented. There will be a lot of properties passing through probate, and this lead source will continue to grow for decades. Moreover, heirs often sell or transfer the title of inherited property within 18 months. Probate leads are a great and growing source for smart real estate investors.

Generation Xers and Millennials, who are inheriting the assets of their parents, want to sell inherited property for a variety of reasons. They may already own a home or live in an area far from their parents. When they inherit property from their parents, they suddenly find themselves responsible for paying all of the estate expenses with little cash to do so. However, the properties they are inheriting often have no or a very low mortgage. Many of these homes are in good condition. Also, inherited property is often split between multiple family members. Therefore, offering $20,000 less on a property may only be a $5-10,000 loss per heir. Since the heirs didn’t put money into the property, unlike a foreclosure or divorce, they are often more interested in selling the property quickly than they are in trying to get as much money out of the property as possible.

All of this means that probate properties are a lead source to properties with motivated sellers. They may be the answer to growing your investment opportunities and finding great deals before your competition does.

Moreover, since this niche is only going to continue to grow, now is a great time to get into the business and learn how to effectively utilize probate leads.

Where to Get Probate Leads

The good news about probate is that they are public record and available at all county courthouses across the country. The bad news is that each county handles probate leads in a different manner, and almost always, in a manner that makes it difficult to obtain the information. In some cases, it is a painstaking process of daily visits to the courthouse to manually collect data. In other cases, an individual can sort through public, county records that are available online. Either way, researching and collecting probate leads on your own is very time consuming and ineffective, which is why this source of leads is often overlooked.

However, at US Probate Leads, we do the hard work of collecting probate data for you, so that you can focus on working the leads. We have been helping people through this process now for over fifteen years.
