One of the most common ways for your estate to get pulled into probate in the United States is if you own any real property (land, house, or mineral interests). If you own properties in multiple states, then you could be subject to probate in each of those states.
Avoid Having Your Properties Subject to Probate
One way to get around probate is if your properties are owned by your Trust. A Trust is its own entity, meaning it can own, buy, or sell the property. The best part about a Trust is that it avoids probate no matter the state!
