    SV45: Single Family Rental Market Outlook w/ Gaston Escudero

    SV45: Single Family Rental Market Outlook w/ Gaston Escudero

    The real estate investing asset class with the lowest barrier to entry is the single family rental. That’s the reason most people find themselves starting there. Some people actually inherit homes from grandparents or older relatives, and become accidental landlords. What is the outlook for the single family rental market going into 2021, on the heels of the most ridiculous economic scene some of us have seen in our lifetime? Gaston Escudero from NexPoint is back to discuss the economics behind the single family rental market, it’s history as an asset class, and his outlook going forward.

    SV44: Introduction to Deferred Sales Trusts w/ Brett Swarts

    SV44: Introduction to Deferred Sales Trusts w/ Brett Swarts

    What are you going to do if you can no longer do a 1031 Exchange? What are your options? These are questions that are being asked in real estate investing circles all over the country right now. A favorite but lesser-known option for deferring capital gains taxes is the Deferred Sales Trust™. If you are ultra high net worth, or are intending to sell a business, commercial real estate, or anything with a large capital gains liability, you need to know about the Deferred Sales Trust™, and you need to listen to this conversation I had with Brett Swarts, Founder and CEO of Capital Gains Tax Solutions.
     
    Brett created Capital Gains Tax Solutions to equip high net worth individuals and their trusted advisors with the Deferred Sales Trust™ tool to help them solve capital gains tax deferral limitations. The first step to a great exit and wealth plan is to sell your highly appreciated assets when the time is right for you. The second step is to defer your capital gains tax, pay off your debt and remove funds from your taxable estate. The last step is to have the funds invested in a diversified portfolio of liquid investments and real estate. The foundation to these 3 steps is timing.
     
    Enjoy the episode!
