In the eyes of Iowa law, this ownership structure stipulates that upon death, the spouse who survives will immediately inherit the property without any need for it to enter into any probate proceedings.
In this circumstance, there are many reasons why the surviving spouse may want to quickly sell their property.
Perhaps they're overwhelmed by the upkeep of the house without their spouse to help them with maintenance
