Your parents can have the deed changed to your name and file form 709 to report the gift (because it is valued more than $14,000 the annual limit) then they can claim the lifetime allowance to cover the amount over $14000 so they will not actually pay any gift tax.
They can split the gift. Each of them has the lifetime allowed amount ($5.45 mil).
