Article | March 4, 2020

Since we know machine learning is driving innovation across every industry, real estate included, I took the time to summarize my experience as an attendee of ICNY by highlighting key findings in this blog post. These insights are based on my personal interpretation of the sessions, booth visits, and conversations with industry players (real estate agents, proptech workers, investors, and other conference participants). It’s no longer news that the real estate industry experienced a major revolution over the last few years with the involvement of iBuyers. In short, iBuyers digitize as many housing transactions as possible. Players like Zillow, Opendoor and Redfin offer buyers, sellers, and renters the option to find an agent or search, distribute, finance, and even close a transaction online.

Complete Guide to Real Estate Scripts in 2020

Article | March 4, 2020

There is a huge chance that you heard the word “scripts” thousands of times. It’s like a real estate urban legend that newbie real estate agents hear about all the time. Everyone has an opinion about it and no one can agree on it. Some say scripts are just a shallow representation of a natural conversation between the real estate agent and the client. Others claim that it’s a very helpful tool—especially for a less experienced real estate agent—and scripts may help them overcome many unexpected situations. Well, we think there is a grain of truth in both of these statements and we should examine the scripts case more carefully. So, why are real estate agents so confused about scripts? Here is the thing. Many real estate agents go through the different conventions, purchase ready scripts and use them without changing even a word.

Everything you need to know about 1031 Exchange.

Article | March 4, 2020

A 1031 exchange is used by savvy real estate investors to defer paying capital gains tax on the sale of an investment property. This is allowed by exchanging the first property for a second property the investor wishes to purchase. To put this in perspective, you would rolls the taxes of the sale of first property into the new property, deferring it until the sale of second property. Effective use of 1031 exchanges allows investors to leverage the proceeds of an investment property sale to build bigger real estate portfolios. Essentially, if you sold a building for $500,000, you would lose, say, $150,000 to taxes. With a 1031 exchange, you might be able to use the entire half a million dollars to purchase one or more properties. Normally, you would have $350,000 after paying taxes on a sale of your investment property which it would put a limit to potentially buy property in the future. By implementing a 1031 exchange, your purchasing power goes up almost 30%. That sounds like a pretty good deal—and a deferred 1031 exchange is one way to potentially help you achieve it. We use 1031 exchange with majority of our real estate investors. It's a great tax strategy for any real estate investor.
