Let’s walk through the step by step process for carrying out a 1031 exchange. Be aware that the following is just a general outline, so specific deals will likely vary slightly from this process.

 

The 10-Step Process to Perform a 1031 Exchange

1. Decide to sell and do a 1031 exchange.
Not every purchase is worth doing a 1031 exchange. After all, with all the requirements, costs, and countdown timers, simply paying the tax and moving on may be advantageous. That is definitely a discussion for you to have with your accountant.

2. List your property for sale.
You then list your property for sale, as you ordinarily would. Your agent will likely include language in the listing paperwork regarding your desire to do a 1031 exchange and the buyer’s

I had a VA client who was told by their lender that they did not have to pay closing costs. One of the things I do for all my clients is to explain the buying process and with a VA loan, I explain they may qualify for no money down but there are still closing costs. I asked my client to check with their lender what they would be and they were still left with the impression there were no closing costs. We ended up finding a home rather quickly and now my client they had 10,000 in closing costs that were due. One of the things I pride myself on is my negotiation skills. In this situation to help them attain their toll brothers dream home, I was able to negotiate with the seller to pay half their closing costs and we would add 5k to the offer we had made.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sellers tend to overprice and spend a tremendous amount of effort trying to defend their price, even if the market doesn't support it.
  • Pricing a home correctly is a partnership between sellers and their agent, not a battle of wills.
When it comes down to it, the most important advice a real estate agent can give sellers is how to price their home. No matter how beautiful or well-maintained a property may be, how many upgrades it has or how well it shows, if a home is not properly priced, it’s going to be a tough sell.

The battle for agents most often lies with aligning what sellers’ think their home is worth with its true market value.

These disparate realities can be difficult to merge

One of my first Las Vegas Real Estate clients was a wonderful couple looking for their future retirement home. They were getting calls left and right from agents since they visited so many sites online. I assured them that I had no intentions of bombarding them with calls or emails. However, what I did let them know that I was there to find them a home, and if that was their goal I would work honestly and diligently with “THEIR” timeline. I let them know I was licensed in CA, as well as NV; which in turn was truly beneficial to them coming from there. I educated them on both markets and what their buying power truly was. They appreciated that I actually listened to every detail, and welcomed any feedback “negative or positive.” They decided to move

The very first appointment I had was with an extremely difficult client who was convinced his condo was just going to continue to be a money pit for him and his family. He admitted that most of the time he hung up on or cussed out every agent that called him because he truly didn't think anyone was actually out to help him. Despite that, he was excited by the things I said and could tell I was different, so not only did he not cuss at me, he invited me for an appointment. We were able to get him an offer that was much higher than expected and would have gotten him out from under his loan. With the newfound hope in agents though, he decided instead of selling, he wanted to turn a profit and rent. We can't win every transaction, BUT we can win people, and

We live in California and became interested in purchasing our future home in Las Vegas. We had the pleasure of working with Kimberly. As a longtime resident, she is very knowledgeable about the area. We were interested in new development and Kimberly knew exactly where to take us. We weren’t too familiar with the town other than the strip so having Kimberly showing us around was great. For any out of towners, she’s a great relocation specialist. It made purchasing a home a great experience, she’s very personable and kept us in the loop through the whole buying process and nothing was a mystery. The loan process was a breeze, she works with some great partners in the loan industry and had provided us some great creative finance options.

Typically my clients are relocations and many have never actually been in their home until the day of move in. That can create a unique situation such as timing for arrivals of delivery trucks, buyers not being in the city at the time of close, pet-friendly hotels, etc… I provide information necessary to assist and make the transition as smooth as possible.

I create a trust with my buyers and most importantly follow through. Once we close I hold on to their keys for them until they arrive and when the big day is here and that van pulls up they are the happiest people moving into their new home and new city. The next questions are where are the nearest grocery stores, pet hospital, hospital, church, jazz clubs, etc.

Moving to a new city can be
