"1031 Exchange vs Refinance or Straight Sale or Hold"

Listen to Briefing from 02/21/10

Interview Summary:

There are many presentations on how to do 1031 tax defered exchanges, but none explain when you should do an exchange. This presentation will focus on when to do an exchange versus other alternatives: refinance and buy a second property, sell and pay your taxes, continue to hold your property or do a 1031 tax deferred exchange and defer your gain into your next property. If you compare the four economic benefits of ownership (cash flow, income tax savings, loan pay down paid by tenants and appreciation) for your current position and your new position, you can easily see which is the best way to go. We will show you how to compute the current four economic benefits and compare them in an easy format to the four benefits in the various new positions.
