It’s true we are all going to die and many times as the result of a death people become an heir to an estate.  Sometimes by themselves or in other situations as a group of individuals with defined interests in a property.

Good planning by persons prior to death can save money, time and be extremely beneficial in the property transfer process.  A good starting point is performing a marketability analysis to identify needed repairs or improvements that will enhance a sale for market value. Sometimes people are overly frugal and fix up actions are taken after a person has passed from estate monies and become a burden to the survivors.  The property review can show things you can do now and enjoy in your remaining years from your equity.
