The FMV at the time of the gift is greater than the basis of the giftor.  Thus, they will get the carryover basis from the giftor but will have to factor in any additions (substantial improvements done by the giftor since the home was purchased) and subtractions (any depreciation taken when the property was a rental).  Depreciation will be passed on to the family receiving the gift.
