My mother just died and my step-father has entered into an assisted living apartment. He quit claimed his house over to me and my sister and now there is the possibility that my sister is not going to live there so we will need to sell it. We want to put the money in a trust or something to preserve it for my step-father. When we sell it, do I have to pay taxes? I do not know any real estate attorneys. Please help me in detail.
