Five Options that you should consider with the sale of real estate

One of the most difficult investment decisions is when and how to dispose of a real estate investment. For many of our clients, a 1031 exchange is not the best option.  Our five-point approach focuses on advanced financial analysis around the concept of the accumulation of wealth. Most of our clients invest in real estate for the accumulation of wealth which is more important than cash flow. We consider all five options with the disposition analysis including continuing to own the property as-is.
