Why Donate Real Estate?

People and organizations donate properties for different reasons.  Here are some of the most common ones.

Sometimes, owners get behind paying their property taxes.  Maybe the property is not making as much money as an investment property for you, and you might become delinquent in paying property taxes when this happens.  Perhaps other expenses creep, and you just don’t have the cash on hand you need to pay the property tax bill when it comes.  In some cases, those property taxes start piling for a year or two.  Then it might make sense to donate your property rather than fork over the money to pay taxes on a home that is not making you enough money to justify paying those past due tax bills, or you might not be able to free up \the financial resources you need to make that happen.

Sometimes, home and property repairs can be costly, maybe more costly than you can afford to pay.  If you own an investment property but are not making enough money to cover the cost of repairs that are required to be able to rent out your property to a tenant, it might make sense to donate it rather than lose the cash paying for repairs that cost more than the money your property is generating for you.

Many people become landlords, because they like the idea of making passive income.  When things work well, that can be a great plan and can build your investment portfolio nicely. Passive income is nice, because you don’t have to do (much) work to collect money each month (or however often your lease agreement says your tenant is required to make rent payments to you).  However, this is great, in theory, but reality does not always match the theory.   Being a landlord is great when you have a great tenant, but sometimes, you might have a less desirable tenant.  Maybe that tenant breaks things in your house irresponsibly.  Perhaps, your tenant has not paid you in a very long time and refuses to take your legal eviction quietly.  In some extreme cases, your tenant might even be running an illegal store from your property.  Bad tenants are not always easy to evict, and maybe donating your property might be easier.

Have you (and maybe along with one or more siblings) inherited a property that is not anywhere near where you live?  Do you now own property that is too far to be convenient for you to manage properly?  Maybe property taxes are owed, and you don’t have the money readily on hand to pay for the upcoming invoice.  Maybe the property is not in as good of shape, but you are not in position to repair the property.  As a property owner, you now have exposure to legal liability.  If someone falls or gets injured on your inherited property, you and whoever else owns the property can be sued, which is obviously a hassle.  No matter the reason, you can often donate the property and get rid of your inherited hassle.

You might simply want to help out or even make the world or community a better place with an asset you have to donate rather than make a monetary donation directly to a charity or non-profit organization.

There are many great reasons to consider donating real estate to charity. Typically, our donors have been motivated to give for reasons including substantial tax deductions, freedom from unwanted property holdings, quick turnaround on real estate assets, efficient liquidation of corporate real estate, and ultimately, the ideal way to give a generous gift to a favorite charity.
