Thank you so much for your prompt reply, I really appreciate it!
As a matter of fact, my Mom sold her house (or went to contract) JUST before she died. We were lucky enough that our attorney was smart enough to change the contract at closing so that her estate sold the house and my sister and I received the stepped up basis. I was not aware of the tax deduction for the brokers fee, thank you for pointing that out!
Thanks again!
