Estate / Probate / Trust


Estate, Probate, and Trust sales are two ways to sell assets after someone passes away. While people often mix up these terms, they involve different processes. Understanding these differences is helpful when dealing with a loved one's property or managing an estate. An Estate Sale is when the personal belongings and assets of a deceased person, such as furniture, artwork, jewelry, and collectibles, are sold off. Usually, the executor of the estate, who handles the deceased person's assets, organizes and manages the sale. A Probate Sale involves selling real estate through a court order. Probate is the legal procedure for handling a deceased person's estate, and a probate sale might be required if the deceased owned real estate that must be sold to settle debts or distribute proceeds to beneficiaries. A Trust Sale is a type of transaction in which the original owner transfers interest in the property to a third-party trustee. The trustee then holds money from the purchaser in escrow until all of the seller’s mortgages and fees are paid off. Once this is done, the title deeds are transferred to the new buyer and ownership of the property changes hands.
