I often talk about the importance of owning your own home, when you rent it is a house when you own it’s a home, or building your net worth by investing in real estate.  However tonight I would like to encourage you to think about what will happen after you are gone (there are only 2 things guaranteed in life; death and taxes Lol) How will the real estate you own be disposed of?  If you do not have a will many states have laws in which they direct how the estate is disposed of through the courts.  If you have a will, how have you directed the disposal?  You must be clear as to what it is you want to happen, if your, not it becomes an opinion of the heirs.  I have been involved in the disposition of several estates and there is always that one that feels slighted or left out.  Who will collect the rents or supervise repairs?  Should the properties be held, sold or refinanced?  It is up to you to be clear as to how your personal and real property is to be disposed of.  Sorry for the subject, but I am seeing more and more of this.  On a brighter note Have a wonderful week everyone and remember I can assist you in the purchase or sale of real estate anywhere in the world, message me today and let me show you the way home.
