1031 Exchange Trends

There are a few trends that I've been noticing with our 1031 Exchange clients over the last 12-16 months that are worthy of comment. First of all, many investors seem to be trading out of large properties and acquiring single family residences. In fact, one of our recent clients just sold a large apartment building and acquired seven single family rentals. The motivation for the investor was simple, the single family rental properties produced a solid cash flow and the investor expected the SFR's to appreciate better over the long term. The other trend I've noticed is that many of our clients are doing just the opposite - taking advantage of the market dynamics to trade up. One of our clients recently sold his 2 unit property and acquired his first commercial building. It's interesting to see trends going in opposite directions, but it may be a simple fact that it's a lot easier to find value in today's real estate market. If you have any questions or would like to start a 1031 Exchange, please call me anytime at 877-311-GARY.
