I’ve been marketing to estate executors for a few months now. I visit the county surrogate’s office and search through probate cases looking for those in my market area. The computer system at my local surrogate’s office lists the address of the deceased and the address of the executor. A decedent’s address in my target area and an out of state executor seem to me the best possibility for motivated seller.
Once I locate what seems to be a reasonable prospect I search the county clerk’s office for real estate owned by the decedent, the date of sale, mortgages, etc. Once I locate a decedent with a property with equity I send a letter to the executor with condolences and a notice that I would be interested in purchasing the property.
I had never come across the term of a county surrogates office. I will look more into it. It could just be a small office down in the county courthouse.
The reason I made the post was after attending the “free” seminar that had some general information, there is a 3-day advanced training that is a few thousand dollars. Just wanting to know if anyone is using the Banks techniques and have found success in probate investing?
