Being Smart About Taxes

About this goal

When you sell a property that has appreciated, you could owe taxes. Here are some options to help you avoid a big tax bill.

Key Considerations

  • Do you want to sell? If so, is it because you need some or all of the cash proceeds from a sale, or do you just want the property off your hands?
  • Have you considered a tax-deferred 1031 exchange? If so, are you eligible?
  • Do any of these goals apply: defer taxes, increase monthly income, reduce ownership hassles?
  • If your property has upside potential, have you considered making physical or operational improvements—and then selling with a tax-friendly strategy?
Tip
If you plan to do a 1031 exchange, we can adjust the closing date so you have more time to complete the exchange—without the stress of the usual 45-day deadline.

Smart options to defer taxes and get what you want

Earn a steady monthly income—and minimize ownership hassles, expenses, and liability.

  • Our Installment Sale is a sale, but instead of receiving all of the cash at closing, you can earn more—and defer taxes—by taking payments over time. Since it’s a sale, you eliminate the baggage of ownership.
