Commercial real estate refers to a wide range of properties used for anything other than a personal residence. Commercial properties can include office complexes, shopping malls and retail outlets, large parcels of raw land intended for development, and residential housing such as apartment or condominium buildings and multi-family dwellings.
Purchasing commercial real estate is considerably more expensive than buying single family residences. Oftentimes, real estate investors will join forces with other investors to purchase commercial properties.

Probate liquidators refer to companies that purchase assets held in probate. This can be a valuable service for estate executors because it allows them to sell assets for cash. This money is used to pay off outstanding debts associated with the estate and allows for ease of distribution to creditors and intended beneficiaries.
The sooner assets are sold to probate liquidators, the better. Estate assets are held in probate for an average of three years. During this time assets depreciate, while attorney fees and probate costs escalate. By selling probate assets at the onset of probate, the estate receives more money and can reduce the duration of the probate process.
