Typically people accumulate wealth during their lifetime. The sum of that accumulation including real estate, other owned items, investments, other assets and cash combine to establish a person or family’s estate. While the value of each state varies the need to protect that estate after death is essential for everyone.

Simply put an estate is the net worth of a person or family. It is the sum of all assets, less all liabilities at that time. The issue is of special legal significance on the death of the person.
