With its considerable appreciation rate and tax benefits, real estate continues to be a good sector for many investors seeking to grow their capital. According to the Real Estate Investment Guide, while prices of most US goods and services in 2006 rose only 4.2%, housing prices grew at nearly 3 times that rate (12.5%). According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), consumers who bought residential property six years ago have gained more than 50% in appreciation value in that time. This means for the savvy investor, there are real estate profits to be made.

1031 Tax-Deferred Exchanges
A tax deferred exchange is a smart way to keep your investments growing.
Generally, all gains and losses on real estate sales are taxable, but an exception lies if the property is traded or exchanged for ‘like-kind’ property under a 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange. A 1031 Exchange allows investors to sell a rental, trade, or business property and use profits from the sale to buy a new property and not owe taxes immediately – because the new property is seen as a “continuation” of the original investment. If the investor eventually sells the new piece of property, however, taxes would be due.
