Everything you need to know about 1031 Exchange.

Article | March 9, 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.

When this virus first started making the news late last year, few people anticipated that it would turn into a global pandemic that would virtually shut down world economic markets. In the real estate world, when this did happen, it was easy to predict that the deals that had not yet been signed, would come to a stop and/or be terminated, and that deals that had been signed would be paused and extended. But what about deals in progress and under construction? Supply chains have not only been disrupted, but in many cases, have been stopped altogether. This could cause many borrowers to miss important benchmarks under construction loan agreements. It could also cause developers to miss delivery dates under leases and contracts. Will lenders declare loan defaults for missed benchmarks? Will tenants and buyers?

The 3 Tasks Every Real Estate Agent Should Be Outsourcing

Article | March 9, 2020

A clean, well-managed CRM can be your most valuable real estate tool. Too often, however, the database is so neglected and disorganized that it’s not living up to its full potential. Management of the system is an ongoing task, requiring a significant amount of an agent’s time. In fact, the folks at Hubspot found that nearly 30 percent of salespeople spent in excess of an hour a day on data entry. That’s an hour much better spent taking a former client to lunch or prospecting for new clients. When it comes to outsourcing real estate tasks, how does one go about finding help with data entry? Hiring a virtual assistant with CRM experience is probably the easiest way to get started. Here are just a few tasks to hand off:
