Can you avoid taxes by giving the property as a gift or a charitable donation to someone or by transferring the property title?

Can you avoid taxes by giving the property as a gift or a charitable donation to someone or by transferring the property title?

You cannot avoid taxes by gifting the property to somoene else or by transferring title. Estate tax exemptions start at around $60,000.00. Gift exemptions start at around $13,000.00. If you transfer the title to another person, this is essentially selling the property and you will need to pay capital gains tax.  There is no avoiding taxes as a Canadian buying US real estate property in Florida.
