In Washington County, most properties which are owned by married couples are owned within a structure called a "Joint Tenancy". In the perception of Iowa law, this ownership structure stipulates that upon death, the surviving spouse 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 real estate.
Perhaps they're overwhelmed by the upkeep of the house 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 Washington County quote!

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.
