Why Pre-Probate Leads in Shelby County, Illinois?
Our pre-probate leads provide information about Shelby County properties that are entering into the inheritance process. Often, the owners of these properties are highly motivated to sell.

The probate process is complicated and lengthy. Individuals involved in the sale of the property may be driven to sell quickly to prevent additional bother. This scenario provides the opportunity for real estate investors to negotiate a lower price.
Our pre-probate list includes useful data about the property, including size, location, value estimation, tax information, and much more. For an additional 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 opportunities for real estate investors to purchase properties at a discounted price and resell or make improvements in order to increase their value.
What are "Pre-Probate" Leads?
While our Shelby County 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 Shelby County pre-probate leads which ultimately do not enter the probate process or go to probate court.
In Shelby County, 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 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 house.
Perhaps they're overwhelmed by the upkeep of the home 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 family.
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 Shelby County quote!

Why purchase from USLeadList?
Before we publish our list each month, we scrub 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 chance at a good deal, so we limit our own sales.
Our Shelby County data is up-to-date and relevant. We source an entirely new nationwide list each month with data from every other county in Illinois.
