It is valued at $65K (based on recent appraisal & tax records). In July, 2012, the house appraised for $65k. Property tax records from our county courthouse show a valuation of $78k. A copy of these county tax records was submitted to the VA representative when we met to establish her fiduciary; however, no copy of the most recent appraisal has been submitted. Market value and therefore selling price would be around $65k. My sister and I are reluctant to place the house on the market because we don't want to risk the sale (which will be considered income) disqualifying her current A&A benefit. Mama receives the maximum monthly benefit for a qualifying spouse of a deceased veteran. She has dementia and moved into an assisted living facility in October, 2014. Realistically, she will never be able to live at home again and our family is certain that selling the house is in her best financial interest, so long as it doesn't affect her A&A benefit. Does anyone have experience with such a situation?
