1031 Tax Deferred Exchange with Greg Schowe

Greg Schowe show cardGreg Schowe  with United Country Real Estate- Commercial  joins Doug and Tammie in the studio to help shed some light on the 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange opportunity for investors.

The payment of income or capital gain tax on the sale of property can be voluntary thanks to Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code which is one of the most underutilized sections of the tax code.  Maybe for the laymen better understood as a 1031 Rollover.  Basically the gain is rolled over to a new property. There are an unlimited number of times an individual can successfully rollover gain and postpone tax. The ultimate goal is to make this tax disappear by one of two ways:

1. Sellers may successfully rollover gain and ultimately move into one of their investment properties and declare it to be their primary residence. Provided they are married and have held the property for five years, reside in the property for a minimum of two years, they can exempt $500,000.00 in taxes upon the ultimate sale.

2. Capital gains taxes are eliminated upon the death of the property owner. Heirs receive a step up in basis on the date of death.

Below are some simple points to master to have a clear understanding of the rules pertaining to 1031 exchanges.

Managing Money During Major Life Events

major life changeAre you getting married, divorced?  Have you lost your job?  How about a baby? or Buying your first home?  We have put together some thought provoking ideas to slow you down and think how you can be prepared for effectively managing your money during some of these major life events.


  • Discuss finances early on. If one spouse is a stingy saver while the other is a carefree spender, it can be cause for turmoil in a marriage, especially if the issue isn’t discussed early on. Do you prefer a joint bank account? Separate bank accounts? Or maybe the concept of “Yours, Mine & Ours” is best for you, with one joint account for fixed monthly expenses and two separate accounts for discretionary spending. Be preemptive and talk about how you’ll manage your finances, long before an issue even arises. You’ll both be more likely to address the issue calmly and constructively, and you’ll be better equipped to resolve any future disagreements. At the very least walk away from the conversation knowing each others viewpoint.
  • Design a budget you’ll both be able to stick to. This depends on how your bank accounts are set up, what your financial goals are and how your spending styles differ. The most important thing to set measurable, attainable goals, and then follow up with weekly or monthly money meetings to keep each other accountable and on track.
  • Contribute to an emergency fund, retirement plan and debt payment plan—together. These are long-term goals that should be included in any budget but are particularly important for couples to work toward together. Not only might it be quicker than trying to reach your goals alone, meaning it’ll save interest on a debt payment plan or earn more interest on an emergency fund, but also opens you both up to more options for a stable financial future. For example, if one person has better retirement options than the other, use that knowledge to allocate your resources wisely and maximize your return.

8 Costs That New Investors In Real Estate Do Not Consider

Investing%20moneyDoug and Tammie share a list of 8 things investors must consider when investing in real estate.

Unexpected Repairs

A home inspection is a vital component in assessing whether or not a property is worth pursuing. The inspection report can reveal many inherent problems related to items such as roofing, electrical wiring, plumbing connections and HVAC, which is short for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. However, the unforeseen costs lie in the pieces not covered in the inspection report. For instance, any damage to a main sewer line that travels from a property to the street, or septic tank problems will not be detected on the report. Even leaks or mold inside the walls of the property can easily and expectedly be missed. Once a property is acquired and if significant problems arise regarding plumbing or other unforeseen elements, it can cost thousands of dollars to have them repaired.  Read More »

Are You Living House Poor?

empty-wallet-SCOne common problem that people run into is that they become house poor.  What does this mean?  You are house poor if you have no extra money to pay for emergencies, cover your expenses and save for the future, because your house payment is too large. Your house payment should be about twenty-five percent of your take home pay. Some people think it is okay to go up to about thirty percent if you have no other outstanding debt, and do not plan on going into debt. You may end up house poor if your circumstances change and you begin to struggle to make your payments. For instance if one of you decides to Read More »
