How Does a Real Estate Donation Work?

donating real estate to charity - what you need to know
Play Video

There are three main ways to donate:

1. Real Estate Gift

The donor transfers the deed or title to the charity and receives a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the donation, while avoiding paying capital gains tax that would result from selling the real estate.

2. Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)

Donors with highly appreciated property should use CRTs to accomplish their goals and ensure future income. Other than receiving an immediate tax reduction upon donating real estate to a CRT, this trust is tax exempt and the proceeds from the liquidated property can be fully reinvested into it. Distributions from the CRT to its beneficiaries are determined annually based on a fixed percentage of the value of the CRT’s assets. At the end of the CRT’s life, the remaining assets are distributed to designated charitable organizations.

3. Bargain Sale

The donor sells real estate to a charity for less than the property’s fair market value. As the donor, you are taxed on your gain and may claim a tax deduction equal to the difference between the property’s fair market value and its selling price.

Our Charity Makes a Difference

When DonateMyHouse, a non-profit organization, accepts your real estate, you will be doing more than getting rid of unwanted properties, but rather providing a real, taxable donation to a charity in need. As an affiliate of Kars4Kids, DonateMyHouse helps fund year-round youth development and educational programs while providing donors with an efficient, streamlined  real estate gift experience.

Donating relieved us of maintaining a property 100s of miles from our home.

I was unable to sell the property, which I inherited 6 years ago. I grew tired of paying taxes and up keep on the property.

Donated it to Kars4Kids, so they could make use of it.
