What’s Driving Elon Musk?

What’s driving Elon Musk?

Elon Musk is a science-fiction character. That’s how one friend puts it. In some ways, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla is the archetypical cartoon billionaire – Tony Stark meets The Simpsons’ Hank Scorpio – with the rockets, the rollercoaster personal life and the fast cars – one of which is currently speeding away from us at 13,000kph.


Tougher Criteria For Some Foreign Real Estate Investors

U.S. Toughens Criteria for Some Foreign Investment in Real Estate

“The buyer is willing to pay above market price”….WHY???

Over the past few months,  I’ve seen emails from investor representatives urgently seeking a replacement property to complete their client’s 1031 Exchange…. 

“We are currently seeking well located Southern California Apartments for a trusted 1031 Exchange client.  The buyer is willing to pay an above market price and will have approximately $2M+ for a Down Payment + additional funds….”

My question is…WHY? Why would anyone overpay and be pressured to settle for a replacement property when they don’t have to?

If you qualify for a 1031 Exchange, chances are…You’re a great candidate for a much better alternative.

I’m speaking of the IRS program that allows you to sell today, receive a lump sum, and defer the capital gains taxes for 30 years. This approach is more flexible and much better than a 1031 exchange. It allows you to use your proceeds how, when, and where you’d like to reinvest – even non-real estate investments. You’re back in control.

The market is at an all-time high and most analysts predict a correction coming soon. Why not be ready with cash in hand to buy when prices come down? Or, work with the numerous owners who would sell now at a discount if a buyer comes with cash? If the sale of your capital asset will expose $1MM+ in capital gains taxes, we should talk.
