Earn your C.A.R. Probate Certification today with The Probate Process from A-Z for Real Estate Professionals. This certification 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. 

In general, a Probate occurs when a homeowner dies without a trust and by default leaves a home to an heir. This means (in many cases) that an estate attorney or representative may need to help family members sell the property. Of course, these scenarios can vary widely which is where this course becomes valuable. For example, the first chapter examines when a Probate sale should occur.

Each of the 5 chapters in this course 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 seasoned probate attorney and State Bar Certified Specialist, Paul Horn.

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.
