If you are like most people, your home is the highest-value asset in your estate. As a large part of your estate, you will want to make sure that your home is properly prepared to transfer to your intended heir(s) as quickly, privately, and affordably as possible.
Planning to transfer real property after your death is different than the other assets in your estate. Real property is your home, the land you own, and anything attached to the land. Unlike other assets, such as bank accounts, insurance policies, and personal property, real property ownership is shown with a deed and is recorded in the land records for the jurisdiction.
