Qualified Personal Residence Trust (Qprt)
A trust designed to save on estate tax by moving a residence (or vacation home, if certain conditions in the tax code are met) out of the owners taxable estate. The owner transfers ownership of the property to the trust but keeps the right to live there for a number of years. QPRTs are most popular when real estate values are going up rapidly.
