    If you're in the market to buy or sell a home, chances are you've heard some whoppers on what to do. There are countless pieces of real estate advice out there.

If you're fortunate enough to get an inheritance, here's what Money Expert Nathan Bachrach suggests you do with it.

Before you start spending that money, make a plan.

Write down your long-term goals before you start any of your short-term spending.

Also, make sure you know the tax implications of your inheritance as well.

Seniors are living longer, medical costs are rising, and many investments are still beat up from the great recession.

So Bachrach says it's better that you're pleasantly surprised by a windfall than plan on money that you never see.
