The Probate Process from A-Z

This is a non-credit course. Not for license renewals.

The Probate Process from A-Z for Real Estate Professionals provides a comprehensive overview of the probate process for real estate professionals seeking to represent sellers or buyers in probate transactions, as well as investors looking to purchase probate properties. 

Course Content 

The course is divided into 5 chapters. Each chapter focuses on a specific probate-related topic. The material is presented from the real estate professional's point of view but with the experience and knowledge of a seasoned probate attorney, Paul Horn, who is a State Bar Certified Specialist in probate law.

As you progress through the course, you will discover why certain probate cases take longer (full authority vs. limited authority). This understanding will help you maximize your commission in a probate listing as well as guide you through the probate purchase process. We will discuss different legal documents used in probate and factors affecting homeowner's tax obligations. You will learn about different ways of holding title and how homeowners' choices determine whether a probate is needed. Finally, Paul will go over various marketing techniques to assist you in probate prospecting and listing presentations. 

Upon completing the final exam for the course, you will be eligible to receive a certification from C.A.R as a Probate Property Specialist.
