As real estate values increase, so too does the idea of selling your investment property and taking your profits off the table. One of the major considerations in doing so however, are the tax consequences. Many investors choose not to sell because they simply don’t want to pay taxes on their long-term gains.
There is a way, however, to take those gains and not pay taxes on them by transitioning those profits into a different investment property. I’m talking about the 1031 exchange, and it’s a tool that you can use to delay paying those taxes.
Dave Foster is a 1031 Exchange Expert, and he’s here today to help us understand how it works. Dave is the Founder & CEO of the 1031 Exchange Investor, and he’s also a degreed accountant and serial real estate investor, as well as a qualified intermediary and consultant. Today he’s going to share his tax saving strategies in order to help you maximize your real estate investment returns.
We’ll be discussing the timeline you must follow when doing a 1031 exchange, why you must have a qualified intermediary, the types of properties and investments you can do this with, and whether or not you can 1031 into a syndication. Dave also shares some great examples and unique 1031 strategies that I guarantee will make you say 'Wow'!
If you’ve ever considered selling an investment property and sheltering your profits through a 1031 exchange, you’ll definitely want to hear what Dave has to say. You can contact Dave through his website www.the1031investor.com

To many people the real estate market may seem unpredictable, and the very real fear of losing money has been a huge psychological hurdle to overcome. Many investors don’t want to be at the mercy of the economy and the banks.
My guest today has found a way to circumvent that fear and risk by investing in real estate on His Terms. Chris Prefontaine is rewriting the rules of real estate and coaching investors on how to scale and automate their business without using their cash or credit. His family business has done over $80 Million in real estate transactions.
Chris is also the Best-Selling author of 2017’s “Real Estate On Your Terms” and this year’s “The New Rules Of Real Estate Investing”. Chris and his family are acquiring 5 to 10 properties every month and control between $20 to $30 Million --- all done on Terms without using their own cash, credit, or signing for loans.
Today we’re going to discuss what it means to invest in Real Estate on Your Terms, the two strategies Chris recommends that new investors prioritize, how he survived the Great Recession, and the Core Values he believes are necessary when starting a business.
