Convert Property Held in a Trust into Cash
Hi! I'm Ron - I help trustees & heirs convert Michigan real estate into cash.
Call me directly at (248) 871-7736.
I help you value the trust's property and guide you through your options, so that you can make an informed decision. I offer as-is cash sales, top dollar listings, estate sales, and coordinating of trash removal, cleaning, painting & repairs.
How My Process Works - Trusts
STEP 1: Free Property Evaluation
After you contact me, we will schedule a site visit for me to come out and assess the condition of the home. I provide you with my expert opinion of the "as-is" value and an "improved" value of the home along with my recommendations on how to achieve the higher "improved" value. Next, we will discuss all your options to figure out what best meets your goals.
STEP 2: Get Cash Offers In As Little As 48 Hours
With all my new clients, I immediately prepare and send out a marketing package of the home to my exclusive list of 400+ local cash buyers. In as little as 48 hours later, I will have cash offers for the home for us to review together. If one of the offers is acceptable to you, I will guide you through the sales process and get the transaction closed at a local title company. The best part is you pay me nothing; the buyer pays my fee! I have sold countless homes in "as-is" condition in 7 days or less this way.
If The Cash Offers Aren't High Enough - We Go To Step 3
STEP 3: List Or Auction The Home For Top Dollar
Sometimes we won't get a cash offer that is high enough to satisfy your goals. If that happens, I will guide you through the process of preparing the house to perform it's best in the marketplace. If needed, I have crews that can remove trash, clean, paint, replace flooring, cut the lawn, run an estate sale, and more. Once the sale preparations are complete, I will drive tons of interested buyers to the home with a Premier Listing or Auction Listing. I charge a standard 6% commission for my Premier Listings and a $1500 flat fee for Auction Listings. I sell most homes in 30 days or less.

Quick Tips on Selling a House in a Trust
Selling a house that is held in a trust is not too much unlike selling any other house. However, there are a couple of documents that you will want to make sure you have readily available when you start the process. These documents are:
1. A current Certificate of Trust – this document provides the name and address of the trustee as well as describing his/her powers and authority to act on behalf of the trust. The title company will want to examine this document and typically prefers that it is no more than 12 months old and signed by an attorney.
2. Death Certificate(s) of the deceased – original(s)
You also need to take note that whenever you sign your name it must follow this format “[Your Signature], trustee for [name of trust]”.
