Why Pre-Probate Leads in Illinois?
Our pre-probate leads provide information about properties that are going through the probate process. Often, the owners of these properties are eager to sell.
For the properties which are going through into probate, the legal proceedings can be complex and time-consuming. Being the first party to plant the seed and express interest in the property will pay dividends over time -- Be sure to follow-up!
The probate process is complex and time-consuming. Individuals involved in the sale of the property may be driven to sell rapidly to prevent additional expense. This scenario provides the opportunity for real estate investors to negotiate a reduced cost.
Our pre-probate list includes useful information about the property, including size, location, valuation, assessment information, and much more. For an extra fee, we will also include details for the owner (including phone and email address).
In many instances, pre-probate properties are sold "as is". This provides chances for real estate investors to purchase properties at a discounted price and wholesale or make enhancements in order to increase their value.
What are "Pre-Probate" Leads?
While our data contains probate leads, it is not limited to probate leads, which is why we consider ourselves a pre-probate lead list.
A vast amount of opportunity comes from the pre-probate leads which ultimately do not enter the probate process or go to probate court.
In most properties which are owned by married couples are owned within a structure called a "Joint Tenancy". In the eyes of Illinois law, this ownership structure stipulates that upon death, the spouse who survives will immediately inherit the property without any need for it to enter into any probate proceedings.
In this circumstance, there are many reasons why the surviving spouse may want to quickly sell their house.
Perhaps they're overwhelmed by the upkeep of the property without their spouse to help them with maintenance
Maybe it is too emotional living in their family home without their spouse beside them.
Perhaps they now want to move in with other relatives.
Whichever the reason, simple probate leads would not be able to capture this type of opportunity, which is why USLeadList is the nation's best source of real estate data.Click here for your free quote!
How do you utilize these leads in Illinois?
We recommend sending a mail-piece to the family of the deceased, letting them know that you are interested in the property. We recommend utilizing first-class stamps so that USPS can be forward the letter to the appropriate person, if needed.
Avoid sending a "Spammy" looking letter. The family is likely overwhelmed at the moment, so such mail-piece are likely to be discarded. We suggest a simple letter in a unique sized sized envelope stating that you're interested in purchasing.
Given the circumstances, follow-up letters are often necessary and are especially effective for this list. To truly utilize this list's potential -- we advise following up every quarter for 12-24 months.
For an additional fee, we will also provide contact information (phone numbers and email addresses).
When communicating with these families, please be respectful. Given the circumstances, they are likely stressed. Remember, you are providing the valuable service of ease a burden from their shoulders.
Why purchase from USLeadList?
Before we publish our list each month, we check the addresses against the MLS and other online real-estate sites. Any property which has been sold within the past year is removed. We make sure our clients don't pay for leads which have already been sold.
We only sell each lead a maximum of three times (our competitors don't do this). This is to prevent any one area from becoming saturated with marketing. We want everyone to get a fair shot at a good deal, so we limit our own sales.
Our data is fresh and relevant. We source an entirely new nationwide list each month with data from every other in Illinois.
We have customers who have been utilizing our data with success for well over a decade and still going strong!
Without a good lead source, you're leaving money on the table -- There is potential in every neighborhood and USLeadList will help you find it.
