How you make a gift of real property

Your real property may be given to CSULB by signing a deed transferring ownership following University due diligence review of the property. Your deduction may be based on the fair market value of the property that must be established by an independent qualified appraisal. Some people use their real property to create a trust that pays them income for life. To learn more about this option, click here.
