In the age of tech-stock blue-sky investing, my choice may seem old fashioned; I still prefer profitable companies like Allied Properties Real Estate Investment

Should we put real estate / property into a trust?

Yes it may be a good idea to have an attorney help you create a trust to avoid expensive probate costs and delays.

Also a trust may allow you to “control” matters from the grave.

Find an experienced trust attorney and tax attorney to chart the best course for your property. A Certified Financial Planner (CFP) may also be a good source for taking the smart steps for you and your eventual heirs.
