A 1031 exchange is a powerful tool that allows an individual to save on taxes after the sale of a piece of real estate. Doing so allows the investor to keep more money in their pocket, and defer all capital gains taxes.

On this episode, Leonard Spoto from Asset Exchange Company is back to share the four basic guidelines of a 1031 exchange, and why this program is so beneficial for real estate investors.

A few months ago, we posted a video in which we discussed the behind the scenes decision-making process of a potential real estate purchase. Since then, we ultimately decided to follow through on the purchase. This deal was unlike our other real estate purchases. Typically we conduct the entire closing process electronically, and never see our rentals in person.

 

However, this was a rare local purchase, and I actually was able to speak with the seller—a retiring millionaire landlord. On today’s show, Natali and I are sharing the lessons we’ve learned from this experience. Please join us on episode 349 of Investing in Real Estate!
