Probate sales, unlike standard home sales, present unique challenges that require a thorough understanding of the legal framework. In Maryland, such sales are overseen by the Orphans’ Court, which handles matters related to wills, estates, and guardianships. The latest guide sheds light on the differences between a standard home sale and a probate sale – helping beneficiaries to make more informed decisions.

Cormier notes that stepped-up taxes may arise if the deceased family member originally purchased their home for less than its current market value. Additionally, estate taxes may also need to be addressed. The probate guide provides an in-depth explanation of these tax implications and offers advice on how to mitigate them effectively.

The guide explains that to ensure a swift home sale, it is important to partner with a knowledgeable realtor who possesses a deep understanding of the local area and market dynamics. Marc Cormier assists clients in the listing and marketing of properties and can connect them with prospective buyers. He has been voted as one of the top 1% of realtors in the space – with numerous other certifications related to the field, underscoring his ability to assist with probate home sales.

Cormier’s extensive experience in home upgrades and renovations also allows him to help clients in enhancing their properties within budgetary constraints. Whether clients require minor repairs or major renovations, he can connect them with reputable professionals who can increase their sale potential.

He states: “If a loved one has died and you find yourself inheriting their property, you’re likely experiencing a deluge of mixed emotions. In addition to grief, you may experience gratitude or even elation at your good fortune, and possibly a healthy dose of confusion and indecision.”
