Family Residence Into Credit Shelter Trust

Bogleheads • View forum - Personal Finance (Not Investing) - www.bogleheads.org
I am learning more and more about Credit Shelter Trusts ("Bypass Trusts"). I am wondering about this. Let's say that the wife owns the family residence in her Revocable Living Trust. She dies first and her trust directs the creation of a Credit Shelter Trust for the benefit of her widower. Is there any problem or reason not to leave the family residence in the Credit Shelter Trust? Is there some reason that it's a good idea or a bad idea or neither? And if the widower sells the residence and buys another, can he put the new residence in the Credit Shelter Trust. And again, are there good reasons to avoid this or to encourage it?
