"Don and Cyndi took care of every little detail." "Their honesty and commitment to getting me the best deal possible on my home was immeasurable." Phyllis J. Rioux, Tennessee Read Quote > View All Quotes >
"We are newcomers to the area and had a limited amount of time to search for a home. Cyndi sent us a packet of info on the Dayton area and kept in touch while we awaited military orders. During the short window of time we had to look for homes, she worked her schedule around ours, was highly organized (packets prepared & GPS programmed in her car) so we remained focused and organized during our search. She was kind, open and honest and remained with us throughout the entire nerve wracking process of trying to buy and build long-distance. She always answered emails and correspondence quickly, too, even while on vacation! We highly recommend Cyndi, not only as a realtor, but as a kind, caring individual, great to work with."

Tax Considerations >New 1031 Exchange Rules
One of the most popular "tax deferring" strategies for real estate owners who are selling one property and acquiring another is the use of Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code. It is an effective way to defer paying income tax on capital gain generated by the sale of a property when you intend to reinvest the proceeds in a similar, "like-kind" property. Almost any kind of real property is considered "like-kind" with any other real property.
A recently enacted law closes what was considered a loophole in the Section 1031 rules. In some cases, owners of investment real estate have used the 1031 Exchange to swap their investment property for real estate that could be readily converted to an owner-occupied residential property. After the exchange, they made the property into their principal residence, lived in it for a couple of years, then sold it. Now the American Job Creation Act of 2004 has ruled that properties converted from a 1031 exchange property into a residence must be held and used as a principal residence for at least five years to qualify for the tax exemption. Otherwise, the basic tax-deferring benefits of 1031 exchanges remain the same.
