Trust Sales / Distressed Properties

Trust sales are often difficult for the seller. Not only are there lots of emotions involved, but often the trustee does not live in the area or the sale is unexpected, making the prospect of the sale difficult. We are here to eliminate that stress.

Because of our high level of customer service and experience with giving homes a facelift (see Home Staging information), trust sales have become one of our specialties. We can advise on inexpensive ways to update the home without a remodel, to get you the top dollar in the sale. We have a great deal of experience collaborating with out of town sellers, working on their behalf to get the home ready. This includes supervising repairs, updates and clean-outs of the property. We make sure our out of town clients get detailed communication about what is going on with the process, and try to handle any issues with as little worry for them as possible.

Distressed Properties

It is not uncommon for a Trust Sale home to be in a distressed condition. When someone has lived in a home for decades there is often deferred maintenance and/or the home will have a “dated” feel that may discourage potential buyers. That’s where we come in . . . .to ensure that you get the top dollar for the home. With our complimentary Home Staging services you will get an evaluation of the home with suggestions on simple improvements. This is not remodeling. We are simply showing the buyer the potential of the home through simple and inexpensive upgrades. For example, we might paint a room in a more current color, or change out a light fixture. A buyer reaching to the top of their price range might not have additional money for remodeling – so if the home looks “good enough for now” and does not seem like an overwhelming project, then they will throw their hat into the bidding ring . . resulting in higher offers for you.
