Managing an Estate is an emotional and complicated task. Family conflict, repairs, market conditions, out-of-state trustees and financial constraints contribute to the challenge of selling an Estate. The burden often creates a situation that can quickly get out of hand.
The traditional solution has been to sell the family home “as is” at a significantly reduced price. The result: the seller loses the potential equity while the buyer fixes the house and reaps all the benefits.
Trust Properties USA is the only realtor to work with the best interest of the Estate in mind. Through out Fix & Sell process, your family home and the equity your loved ones worked so hard to establish can now stay within the family!
