Answers to questions about donating real estate
How do I donate property?
We have streamlined the real estate donation process to make it as simple for our donors as possible. After providing your information, you will be contacted by a member of our team to get a better understanding of your property.
Skies Space will do a property review, including a title, tax and lien search and a review for environmental issues.
Upon acceptance, Skies Space will handle all the paperwork and technical aspects of the donation, such as deed transfer and closing. The receipt and IRS form for your deduction will be sent out shortly after closing.
What are the benefits of real estate donation?
Property owners have benefited from unique tax savings when donating to Skies Space. The immediate freedom from having to pay costly maintenance and holdings fees, as well as broker and selling costs makes donating a valuable alternative to selling.
Upon donation, you will receive a tax deduction based on the FULL appraised value of your property. Skies Space will also handle all transfer and closing costs.
