Note: One element in the home ownership equation relates to estate valuation and the estate taxation system. The net equity value of the home is an estate valuation asset (as is the value of life insurance death benefits). In combination, both of these estate value assets can greatly increase the taxable estate well beyond what many investors might think of as their invested wealth. As of now, the Congress has not addressed the return of the pre-2000 taxable estate exemptions which are scheduled to revert back into law after 2010. --Blbarnitz 02:47, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
