t’s no secret that moving can be a time consuming and exhausting process. Unfortunately, the work doesn’t end when your belongings are behind a new front door. The true task still lies ahead; how do you begin organizing all of that stuff? But what if you only had to bring your favorite swimsuit and a few family photos? If you purchase a second home or lease a long-term rental on the Islands there are plenty of fully furnished options to make your next move seamless and simple. In Hawaii, houses are often purchased as part-time residences, vacation homes, or as rental property investments, and it’s an important and a significant expectation for the buyer that the home be sold furnished. Additionally, the Islands are an ideal market for furnished homes because buyers from the mainland are not likely to have personal items shipped over and therefore, want furnishings readily available. While a primary residence is often decorated with heirlooms, personal collections, and other sentimental decor, this is rarely the case with a secondary home. So local interior designers and Realtors create interior styles that appeal to a variety of buyers and renters. When outfitting a fully furnished home it’s imperative to think of all the details. That’s when specialty interior companies shine. Ultimately, no matter which materials or colors are utilized, filling a house with furniture and accessories provides a potential buyer with the vision of a home. It’s no longer an empty space with potential - the space has realized its potential. So whether the furnishings in a home are provided for rental purposes or included as part of a sale, it can be beneficial to include them. If you are considering selling your second home or high-end luxury estate, keep in mind that fully furnished properties garner extra attention. So out with your old, and in with your new.

“Like Kind” - A Commonly Misunderstood Term In a tax-deferred exchange, under Internal Revenue Code Section 1031, an owner can defer capital gain taxes by exchanging property held for investment or used for productive use in a trade or business for other property that will also be held by them for investment purposes or for productive use in a trade or business. Any type of real property – except for a person’s primary residence – can qualify for a tax-deferred exchange. Although the rules for exchanges require that the property sold and the property acquired are “like kind” to one another, it is important to understand that “like kind” does not mean that the property sold and the property acquired must share the same physical characteristics. In other words, an apartment building need not be exchanged for another apartment building. It can be exchanged for raw land; a farm; a duplex; retail property; industrial property; a perpetual conservation easement; a leasehold of 30 years or more, etc. Instead, “like kind” simply refers to the requirement that property “held for investment or for productive use in a trade or business” must be exchanged for other property that is also “held for investment or for productive use in a trade or business”. 54) (continue on page 34)

52) (continued from page 32) This requirement is stated in the Treasury Regulations governing IRC Section 1031 exchanges. Specifically, Section 1.1031(a)-1(2)(c)(2) provides as follows: “No gain or loss is recognized if: … (2) a taxpayer, who is not a dealer in real estate, exchanges city real estate for a ranch or farm, or exchanges a leasehold of a fee with 30 years or more to run for real estate, or exchanges improved real estate for unimproved real estate.” Additionally, property held solely for future realization of appreciation is also considered “held for investment”. Owners of investment property should be confident that there are many alternatives, if they wish to replace their current investment property with another type of real estate. Choose OREXCO to handle your next exchange. We have offices nationwide to serve you and/or your client’s exchange needs. Call 1-877-591-1031 or visit our website at Taxpayers contemplating an exchange should always consult their tax or legal advisor.
