It depends where you live.

This point cannot be over overemphasized. I have dealt with 2 estates in my state* and it was pretty easy and not expensive....

which is why I don't feel the need for a trust. However, I see the reasons that others have them and discuss this pretty much at least once a year with another poster here.

*This is also a reason I somewhat resist owning property in states other than my own.
