Investors Are Already Trying to Get Ahead of Potential Federal Tax Changes – CoStar

SLB Capital Advisors discusses impact of potential tax changes on the sale leaseback market.

Scott Merkle spoke with Mark Heschmeyer at CoStar about the impact of potential federal tax changes on the 1031 exchange real estate market.

“I don’t think it would be prudent to hazard a guess as to what net-lease transaction volume would be without a 1031 market, but I do feel like it would be quite a meaningful impact.”

“The negative impact on the sale-leaseback market would be a reduction in the buyer pool. There would be a lot fewer high-net-worth and other individuals playing in these transactions.”
