The 1041 should include all income or deductible expenses from date of death. 

 A 1041 return can be on a fiscal year, So you can have a 1041 for August to July 31, 2017.  This is the return the house sale should be on.

If there is an attorney involved with the Estate, I would discuss this with them.
