There is a huge shadow inventory of probated properties that are unlisted, unpublished, and unknown. If you are seeing a lack of inventory in your market, you owe it to yourself to seriously look at the probate niche and reach out to the executors/administrators that are tasked with liquidating their loved one's assets. The numbers are staggering - with an aging boomer population, trillions of dollars will transfer from one generation to the next. 

Many real estate professionals shy away from probate for a couple reasons. One, it is sometimes viewed as "ambulance chasing". This is a myopic view, in my opinion. The family NEEDS to settle the estate, cash out and move on to build memories. This is obviously a difficult time for families, and they MUST dispose of assets in a dignified manner. A compassionate real estate professional that helps them through this trying time is certainly not an ambulance chaser - they are providing a huge value. 

Also, many agents/investors are under the impression that probate is a complex transaction, too arcane to delve into. There are some things to know, yes, but it's not all that different from a traditional sale. 

In the next post, I'll get into the more meatier topic of getting probate leads and how to work them to get more consummated real estate transactions.

Subject: How Agents and Investors can Profit from the Multi-Trillion Dollar Probate Niche

It’s estimated that 15 Trillion Dollars in estates will be settled by 2017. Will you be the trusted resource for sellers in your area?

I am hosting a beginner’s class in Probate Real Estate. The instructor is Jim Rutkowski and he will be answering the following questions….

I've been interested in this niche for some time and would like further information about it.  Any light you can shed on it is appreciated.  There was a "class" for this in our market and I had considered it.  Thoughts?
