Tenant in Common Restructuring
Tenant in Common (TIC) ownership allows each co-owner a fractional ownership of the investment property. ITC share-owners retain voting rights on all major issues connected to the property and typically receive a pro-rata share of all net monthly income, tax benefits, appreciation, and an annual property operating statement.
In certain circumstances, TIC owners find they lack the expertise and time to manage their properties. We work with existing owners to transition the ownership structure into one that results in better asset management, improved operations, and healthier investment outcomes.
Joint Venture Opportunities
We work collaboratively with our joint-venture partners to add commercial investment real estate expertise that provides value to the transactions along with capital. Private Joint Venture Equity can add value to nationwide opportunities for development, repositioning and value-added acquisitions.

In 2002, the IRS issued new guidelines on how a group of buyers can pool their equity to “exchange” or “trade up” to larger commercial investment properties, defer capital gains taxes and each still satisfy 1031 Exchange requirements as individual investors.
1031 Exchange, is a real estate investment technique that enables sellers of income property to defer paying capital gains taxes by naming a “like kind” property within 45 days and then reinvesting the profits within 180 days according to the 1984 Congressional Tax Reform Act
Generally, if you exchange business or investment property solely for business or investment property of a like-kind, no gain or loss is recognized under Internal Revenue Code Section 1031. If, as part of the exchange, you also receive other (not like-kind) property or money, gain is recognized to the extent of the other property and money received, but a loss is not recognized.
Self-Directed Retirement Accounts (IRA, 401k, Solo K)
Investors with individual retirement accounts can increase the size of their Self-Directed Retirement Account funds by using them for strategic real estate investments. A Self-Directed Retirement Account owner makes an investment decision on behalf of the retirement plan. The Internal Revenue Service requires the owner to have either a qualified trustee or custodian hold the asset on behalf of the owner. Generally, the trustee for the owner of a self-directed individual retirement account will maintain the assets, all transactions and other records pertaining to them. Most Self-Directed IRA custodians will permit their clients to engage in a wide variety of investments including real estate. Such investments can substantially increase the owner's IRA account and help secure the owner's financial situation during retirement years. It is a little-known but highly effective way to invest in real estate using IRA funds.
