Use of the installment sale as an estate planning and wealth management tool is gaining popularity. When the sale of property is done by installment payments spanning more than one year, the transaction provides numerous value-added opportunities for long-term owners of real property. For instance, the seller would create a steady stream of income over the life of the agreement, illiquid or unmarketable hard assets would be converted into monthly, liquid payments, and eliminating the risks and burdens associated with property ownership/management.
