Some states have something called a transfer on death deed,  In Colorado, a beneficiary deed is probably the equivalent of a Colorado transfer on death deed.

In addition to any method allowed by law to effect a transfer at death, title to an interest in Colorado real property may be transferred on the death of the owner by recording, prior to the owner’s death, a beneficiary deed signed by the owner of such interest, as grantor, designating a grantee-beneficiary of the interest.

The transfer by a beneficiary deed shall be effective only upon the death of the owner.  A beneficiary deed need not be supported by consideration.
