Peter Westbrook: Hello, my name is Peter Westbrook. I am with Westbrook Real Estate Investments and IBuyHousesStockton.com. I’m standing out in front of a house on Park Street in Stockton, California. This house was actually inherited by a lady whose mother had passed away and the house had never been run through a probate.
One of the difficult things about inheriting a house in Stockton is the condition that you’re going to receive it, and that on top of the emotional wear and tear, especially if you grew up in a house. It makes it very hard to be able to part with whatever is here. Making it more so is if you live in the house and you haven’t done all of the things that are necessary in a house to maintain. In this house we’ve got cracks in the ceilings and other things, but this makes it a particularly difficult property for a real estate agent to sell, simply because there’s so much work that needs to be done and banks will not loan money on houses that need a lot of work.
The other unique thing about inherited properties is there’s a process called probate. Probate by definition is just generally the passing of property from one to another and the courts determine who’s the rightful heir. If you have brothers and sisters or if there is no will, then all of a sudden the courts are going to determine who the has the right of succession for the property or who title belongs to. I have a particular expertise in that. I’m not a probate attorney but I’ve done a number of these properties where probate is required.
I’m going to show you the bathroom over here as well so you can kind of get an idea of the updates that need to be done or the updates that haven’t been done and the kind of work that is needed, and this is another bedroom in house.
Anyway, I pay for the probate to be done. I even pay for the probate attorneys. If you have a house that you have that needs to go in probate or is in probate and you would like an all cash offer for that house, even to go to court and so the court can see what you’ve done and what you’re going to do to settle the probate itself, I would be happy to give you that offer. My phone number is 209-481-7780 and I’d be happy to help you through that process. Again, my name is Peter Westbrook and We Buy Houses Stockton I look forward to hearing from you. Please give me a call. Thank you and have a great day.
