Over the past several months, NAR has been an active participant in several studies and surveys to examine the scope and use of 1031 Exchanges by membership and other real estate professionals. Specifically, the studies were aimed at offering a prospectus of what the economic effect will be if they are eliminated from the tax code. July marks the official “roll-out” of the Ling-Petrova study, which analyzes 1031s in the real estate industry and their effect on the economy.
In addition to the Ling-Petrova study results, you may view the results of NAR’s 1031 Exchange Survey. NAR has culled together some compelling anecdotes from members to highlight the innovative and important ways that our industry utilizes 1031s.
Both the Ling-Petrova study and the NAR survey results are available for download below:
