Reasons to Consider Selling All or a Portion of Your Rentals

  • Immediate Cash Payout: Reduce interest and inflation risk by receiving a cash payment now instead of waiting for annual payments over the remaining life of your lease. We are open to buying all or a portion of your future lease payments.
  • Reduce Your Income Taxes: Rental income is taxed at your ordinary income tax rate. By selling your rental income now, your proceeds can be treated as long-term capital gains, resulting in considerably less tax exposure. The transaction may also be eligible for a 1031 exchange. You should consult your own tax, legal and accounting advisors before engaging in any transaction.
  • Reinvestment Opportunities: In addition to a 1031 eligible investment, you can diversify into different asset classes. Many of these opportunities may outpace your current rent escalation rate and better insulate you from inflation.
  • Simplify Estate Planning: Cash assets are easier to distribute. Cash distributions can easily be made during your lifetime, allowing loved ones to enjoy the benefits sooner rather than later.
