My mother owns a home but does not live in the home, she is currently in assisted living. She does not currently have this home for sale. My brother is living in the home. Does this need to be included as part of her net worth as property? She also has inventory (used books) at her home that she used to sell over the internet. I would think that the inventory has to be included in her net worth. But am not sure. Thanks for the assistance, I like the site and the forum. Perhaps these questions was already responded to on another thread. This is a daunting task to do, all the paperwork but....she really needs this money. Between SS & the little pension, there is not much to live on.
