Using US Probate Leads Gives You an Edge Why Do Executors Want to Sell? As an entrepreneur, how you spend your time directly influences the ability of your business to succeed. Going to the courthouse week after week can eat up a good deal of the time that you have available to actually work your business. While you are at the courthouse, you could be sending communications campaigns, meeting with potential sellers, networking with attorneys that specialize in estate law or speaking to business and community groups in the area, getting more exposure for your business. Taking the time to dig through records simply might not be the best use of your time. This is the reason that many probate professionals choose to use a probate leads service. Said Leon McKenzie, the CEO of US Probate Leads, “Our researchers, numbering into the hundreds, are in county courthouses across the country finding a never ending stream of probate real estate leads. This really puts us in the unique position of being the only source of probate real estate leads with such a broad reach into this niche market. US Probate Leads is second to none when it comes to both the quality and the breadth of research that goes into providing you with prospects that are both well vetted and favorably located for you.” Having probate leads that are focused on areas and types of property that you are looking for gives you an edge in the real estate market. While other probate entrepreneurs might prefer to get their leads the “old fashioned way” by going to the courthouse, you can move right to contacting the Executor and visiting the property. By the time a competing probate investor finds what they are looking for, you may have already made a deal! This is one of the most compelling reasons to use US Probate Leads. “Our researchers, numbering into the hundreds, are in county courthouses across the country finding a never ending stream of probate real estate leads.

Having access to a lead service can keep you abreast of the changes in your area and immediately shows you new filings. Finding out as soon as a filing has been made gives you a distinct advantage in providing you time to drive by the property and also in contacting the seller. There are real reasons that you want to have access to this information so that you can make a deal. While leads are generally good for up to eighteen months, there are many Executors that move at a rapid pace once a loved one has passed away. They may do this for a variety of reasons. If the Executor is struggling with grief, it may be easier to simply sell the family home to eliminate the painful memories. Also, if the Executor lives out of state, they may feel the need to sell as soon as possible. This is because they will be facing repairs and maintenance of a home that they cannot easily supervise. Selling the home quickly is a way to eliminate that stressor. Executors also may need cash in order to pay bills that have accumulated in the individual’s name, such as funeral expenses, tax bills, medical charges or credit card expenses. By selling the home quickly they will have cash to cover these financial needs. The Executor may also have no one who is willing to live in the property and may not want to be in the position of having to rent it out. All of these reasons are what compels an Executor to move quickly when selling a probate property. If you have access to professional probate leads then you can take advantage of making a deal to assist them in moving on from their family home. This is an important reason to have a professional lead service identifying options in your area. 25
