Why you Should Exchange Under IRC 1031

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

There are several reasons that you as a property owner should participate in a 1031 exchange. For those of you who are not familiar with 1031 exchanges, 1031s are a way to defer taxes on the capital gains from a sale of investment property.  1031s can be very complicated and you will also need the help of a 1031 qualified intermediary. There are 5 main advantages to exchanging property.

  1. Preservation of Equity – 1031 exchanges allow owners to defer taxes on the capital gains from a sale indefinitely. This allows the owner to roll the gains into a new property over and over rather than pay the taxes. Keep in mind that if you do 1031 exchanges and then at some time in the future decide not to exchange you will owe taxes going all the way back to your original basis.
  2. Leverage – You can exchange from a property that you have a high amount of equity or one that you own “free and clear”  into a property of much more value and has a higher cash flow.
  3. Diversification – Exchangers can diversify by exchanging out of one property into two or more properties. There are time considerations that must be taken into account. Consult with an attorney prior to engaging in an exchange involving multiple properties.
  4. Management Relief – If you as an owner have accumulated several single family rentals that require intensive management you can exchange them for one single investment property that requires substantially less management.
  5. Estate Planning – In many cases, several members of a family inherent a single property jointly and cannot agree on what they want to do with it. The family members can exchange the property for several different properties that suit the needs of all family members.

Always consult with an attorney who is familiar with 1031 exchanges.

Finding Your Perfect Equestrian Property

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

If you are a horse lover and your dream is to own your very own horse property, there are several factors that you will want to consider when you begin to look at equestrian property for sale. You will need to determine what your goals are. Do you simply want a property where you can pasture and stable your own horses and ride elsewhere? Or do you want a property where you can ride for miles, or breed horses, or board horses, or train horses?

The answers to these questions will help you determine what features your property will need. For example, if you are looking for a Colorado Equestrian property for sale where you can stable and pasture your horses but want to limit the cost yet be able to ride for miles then you will want to look at small Colorado equestrian properties that border National Forest,  Bureau of Land Management land, or state land. On the other hand, lets say you are looking at Oklahoma Equestrian property for sale and would like to stable and pasture horses and have the ability to ride long distances. You will want to  look at Oklahoma equestrian properties with large acreage.

You will also want to consider what other features your property will need. If you are planning on breeding horses, then you will need breeding facilities with a number of paddocks where you can keep your mares and stallions separate. You will also need vet facilities, exam stocks, breeding dummies, stalls, etc. If you plan on boarding horses, then you will need to consider the number of horses you will want to board and then look for property with an equal or greater number of paddocks and stalls. You will also need feed storage, tack storage, farrier area, riding areas such as indoor and outdoor arenas, and possibly jumps and other equipment for riders to use while training.

These are just a few areas you will need to consider when looking for your perfect equestrian property. Good planning will save you a lot of time when looking for property as well as time and money saved after closing.
