Did you know you can defer taxes on the sale of your investment or business-use property? It’s called a 1031 exchange, and it could save you a bundle if you’re planning on selling.

Internal Revenue Code 1031 allows an owner to sell their investment or business-use real estate property and use the sales proceeds to purchase a replacement property of like kind without a tax on the profit.

If that isn’t enough, 1031 exchanges are an advantageous way to diversify your assets, improve returns on your investments or just free up more capital for future investments.

But the IRS rules for 1031 exchanges are strict and complex. Don’t go it alone, let your local market expert guide you through the process and maximize your investment.

Lake Charlevoix vacation homeIf you value lifestyle in combination with an appreciation profile, there just might be a place in your portfolio for a Northern Michigan vacation home that makes financial sense. Vacation home prices typically lag major market residential rates by 12-36 months.

But with asking prices for Northern Michigan waterfront and ski-proximate real estate up 10 percent to 20 percent this year (based on 24 months sold price per sq ft averages), discounting has not hit our market.

 While the obligations and negative cash flow aspects of ownership can sometimes be burdensome, the numbers still work as illustrated on our Investment Performance page. Now is the time to explore the pluses and minuses of buying a Northern Michigan vacation home property

Home to an artsy, outdoorsy community, East Jordan is perhaps best known as the gateway to one of Northern Michigan's coolest wild places: the Jordan River Valley, an 18,000-acre paradise loaded with old-growth forest and the pristine Jordan River.  Because of the area's rich history, the homes for sale in the East Jordan real estate market are typically charming cottages and mature single-family homes, each with their unique perks and varying property sizes.  If you're looking for a home with a little more privacy, it doesn't get much better than right here. Properties here, especially those on large parcels, are hugged by lush patches of woodlands and greenery, which further enhances that feeling of exclusivity and seclusion.
