Southern New England's Certified Elder Law Attorney
Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts Certified Elder Law Attorney
Real Estate Services - Martha's Vineyard
Two Decades of Experience
Connelly Law Offices, Ltd. provides a full range of residential and commercial real estate services. For more than 20 years, our attorneys have handled real estate concerns, whether related to a simple purchase to more complicated wealth management planning.
No matter how straightforward they appear, all real estate transactions involve a certain amount of risk. Whether buying or selling a property or developing commercial real estate, it is essential to be protected from liability.
Our experienced real estate professionals can assist in downsizing estates, cleanouts, transfers, and liquidation of assets through sales and auctions. We also help in more general liquidations of property.
Probate and Real Estate
Real property is often the main asset of an estate. The home may be sold during the probate process but only by someone with legal authority to manage the estate assets. The Martha's Vineyard elder law attorney at Connelly Law Offices has assisted executors or has acted as the executor in the probate process and has sold hundreds of properties during the probate process in southern New England. During probate, we suggest the following;
Work with an experienced probate attorney and realtor knowledgeable about selling the real property during probate. Connelly Law Offices has that experience.
Have the real property appraised by a licensed property appraiser to establish a date of death value. Connelly Law can do this for you with our qualified and professional appraisers.
Consider a market analysis to determine an asking price for the real property. Connelly Law's real estate partners can order and complete this analysis quickly.
Obtain court approval to sell the real property. Connelly Law can complete this process as soon as the law allows it.
Ensure that all the beneficiaries are informed and in agreement with the home sale. Part of our real estate and probate services includes this search and contact.

Whatever the issue, our goal is to provide superior service through the zealous representation of our clients, including property owners, buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants, developers, contractors, and financial institutions.
"Because of the court's involvement, probate, and trust sales have a vocabulary all their own. Petitions requesting the court's permission must be filed and approved before the house can be marketed. Various disclosure documents required by the courts are not used in other real estate transactions. The staff at Connelly Law Offices is familiar with the real estate sales process and all the necessary documents. We can provide your needed services whether acting as or representing the executor."
