Gifts of Real Estate

What are Gifts of Real Estate?

By gifting a real estate property purchased years ago, you may be able to take advantage of the appreciated value in the form of an income tax charitable deduction. The property contributed will have a capital gain and the appreciation is by-passed (no longer taxable).

How Gifts of Real Estate Work?

  • Leave through a bequest.
  • Leave real estate through a will or estate planning.
  • The executor of your estate will sell the property and Snowbird will receive the proceeds according to your wishes.
