For the properties which are going through into probate, the probate court process can be challenging and lengthy. 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 complicated and time-consuming. Individuals involved in the sale of the property may be motivated to sell quickly to prevent additional trouble. This scenario provides the opportunity for property buyers to negotiate a lower cost.
Our pre-probate list includes useful information about the property, including size, area, value estimation, tax information, and much more. For an extra fee, we will also include contact information for the owner (including telephone 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 improvements in order to increase their value.
What are "Pre-Probate" Leads?
While our Ottawa 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 Ottawa County pre-probate leads which ultimately do not enter the probate process or go to probate court.
In Ottawa County, most properties which are owned by married couples are owned within a structure called a "Joint Tenancy". In the perception of Michigan 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 real estate.
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 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 Ottawa County quote!

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 customers 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 revenue.
Our Ottawa County data is up-to-date and relevant. We source an entirely new nationwide list each month with data from every other county in Michigan.
