HOORAY FOR DAD! They guide, they protect, they encourage and they inspire. Dads are such an important part of our lives, and here we celebrate just what makes a man more than a father, it’s what makes him a dad! “ A father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way." —Unknown

" My father didn't tell me how to live. He lived and let me watch him do it." —Clarence Budington Kelland " Lately all my friends are worried they're turning into their fathers. I'm worried I'm not." —Dan Zevin " Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, and singers of song." — Pam Brown

" It's only when you grow up and step back from him—or leave him for your own home—it's only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it." —Margaret Truman " The quality of a father can be seen in the goals, dreams and aspirations he sets not only for himself, but for his family." —Reed Markham

Could a 1031 EXCHANGE Work for You? If you own investment property and are planning to sell and purchase something different, you’ll want to consider if a 1031 Exchange might be your best strategy for maximum monetary benefit. The IRC Section 1031 tax code allows for an investor to sell a property and then reinvest the proceeds into a new property or properties, and to defer all of the capital gains taxes. This gives you the ability to keep all of the property’s equity for re-investment which can be a powerful strategy to facilitate significant portfolio growth and offer an increased return on your investment. A 1031 Exchange must be properly structured for it to be valid. There are some rules of the transaction that must be followed, and an accurate understanding of the process is important. We will refer you to a required qualified intermediary (QI) who serves as a 1031 Exchange facilitator and will advise and guide you through the specific selling and buying process. For a property to qualify, it must have been held for productive use in trade, business or investment. Likewise, the property you’ll be exchanging it for must be considered “like-kind.” Some people confuse this concept and think that they must exchange properties that have the same use. That’s not the case. It simply means you can exchange real property held for investment with any other real property held for investment. So, for instance, you could exchange raw land for a commercial site, an office building for apartments, or single-family rentals for retail.

Mother’s Grace foundation is dedicated to the support Mothers-Grace.org of mothers and children who have endured life tragedies. By providing financial, emotional and hands-on support and guidance, Mother’s Grace empowers these women to reach their goals of making a difference in their communities by helping others inflicted with similar circumstances. Mother’s Grace offers immediate help for those burdened with a devastating loss or illness with financial help for bills, medical expenses or any other service that may be required during their time of need. Mother’s Grace also supports children dealing with the loss of their mother, or in need of a mother’s mentorship. This grassroots foundation further strives to support mothers who have dealt with personal tragedy by awarding four to five grants per year to women wishing to start their own 501(c)(3) organization in an effort to help others suffering with a similar crisis.

GO ON STRIKE Warm up your killer bowling stance and head over to North Just about all of us could benefit from better sleeping. Whether you have trouble winding down for sleep or are prone to waking through the night, perhaps some changes in your bedroom will help improve your slumber from “so-so” to “so splendid.”

GIVE YOUR BEDROOM A BETTER-SLEEP

CHOOSE SERENITY – Calming colors for your walls and bedding really do go a long way in setting the mood for sleep. Pastel shades of blues and greens, lavenders or muted grays are a nice choice. Cool colors have been proven to help lower blood pressure and heart rate while inducing a relaxed state-of-mind.

When you are exchanging, you must exchange into property of equal or higher value. However, you may exchange one property for several, or vice versa. You can exchange property from other states. So, if you own an office complex in Minnesota for instance, you can exchange it for income-producing rental properties in Arizona.

We’ve helped many clients sell and buy while using the 1031 Exchange to their advantage. Call or email us and we’ll put you in touch with an exchange facilitator who can answer your questions and help you determine whether it’s a good option for you as well.

& NOTEWORTHY

WHAT THEY DO:

What is not allowed in an exchange is property held for personal use, or property held primarily for sale such as developed lots or fix-andflips. Second homes and vacation homes might qualify if they meet the requirements; such as you’ve personally used the property for 14 days or less of every calendar year that you’ve owned it.

Exchanges must meet a predetermined timeline as well. You must identify which property or properties you’ll be buying within 45 days from the close of escrow on the property you’re selling, and you must close on the new property or properties within 180 days.

SPOTLIGHT ON

Mother’s Grace foundation is dedicated to the support of mothers and children who have endured life tragedies. HOW CAN YOU HELP? In addition to helping monetarily; a donation of your time, business skills or social connections can assist this organization in meeting its goals. Mother’s Grace holds several fundraising events throughout the year in which your contribution and attendance is appreciated. Visit the website to learn how you can be of assistance.

Along those lines of rest and relaxation, surround yourself with soothing aromatherapy notes such as lavender, vanilla or ylang ylang. Spritzing your pillow with a sleep-inducing spray or putting a drop of oil on your light bulb as you settle in to read before sleep can calm and ease frayed nerves. COZY UP – Nestling into a comfortable bed is crucial for the best sleep. If your mattress isn’t as comfortable as you’d like, take the plunge and invest in the best mattress you can afford. It will be money well spent. The same goes for your

Scottsdale’s new pillow. Keep trying different materials, lofts and firmness until you find the perfect one. For bedding, choose fabrics that are soft and pleasant to the touch such as silks or high-thread-count cotton.

DELETE & DECLUTTER – As you settle into bed at night, what is in your line of sight? Your laptop? Unpaid bills? Discarded clothes on the floor? Your bag of dry cleaning to be dropped off tomorrow? Get it all out of the bedroom. Your bedroom is your respite from the rest of your busy life, so don’t allow anything in your bedroom that doesn’t make you feel happy. Instead, strive to fill your space with beautiful artwork, eye-pleasing furnishings and cherished mementos that help you recall joyful experiences you’ve had. GO AU NATUREL – We’re talking about plants here, not your sleepwear choice! That’s right, plants in the bedroom are excellent at purifying the air of toxic compounds and indoor pollutants. Not only do they absorb harmful chemicals, they emit fresh oxygen, making your air quality better for sleeping. One great choice is the aloe vera plant which produces its oxygen at night – just when you need it!

Bowlero for a fresh, fun and lively take on knockin’ the pins. This isn’t your father’s bowling alley. Here you’ll find signature blacklight lanes, plush lane-side seating and vibrant hi-definition video walls.
