Why Is Estate Planning Important?
Estate planning can be both emotionally and financially complicated. It's not something that most people actively look forward to, but it's essential to sit down and make those important decisions when you have the time and freedom to do so comfortably.
An estate refers to all of the property that you own prior to your death. You may hear the terms "real property" and "personal property" - real property is real estate, like land, while personal property refers to everything else you own, from the money in your bank account to your cars and your investments.
Taking the time to properly set up an effective, efficient, and organized estate plan is one of the most thoughtful gifts that you can leave to your heirs. When you take the time to set up an estate plan, you can spare your family members and heirs countless hours of hassle settling your affairs, when they should be grieving your loss. Furthermore, a poorly crafted estate plan can cost your estate, and ultimately your heirs, countless dollars in taxes, fees and time spent dealing with your unsettled affairs.
