Don't think you have a large (enough) estate to worry about a living trust? Think again! The
market value of even the smallest of homes can result in a probate estate costing more than $10,000
to administer and settle. When you consider that estate planning can cost less than ten percent of that
amount and will eliminate all probate costs, it seems better to have that living trust drafted, doesn't it?
