General Session: The Art of Exchanging Properties

The IPA has a long history of supporting and fighting for the 1031 like-kind exchange market. As an advocate for this investment structure, its critical to highlight how financial advisors and investors are implementing evolving strategies around this important financial instrument, as well as 721 exchanges. With property values increasing over the last few years, many have looked at 1031s, DSTs, and 721 exchanges as viable financial planning tools. Will future changes in the real estate market affect the popularity of these important planning products?

How the Current Environment is Creating Increased Opportunities for Experienced and Well-Capitalized Multifamily Developers

Tighter financial conditions are making it difficult for small and mid-sized developers to pursue new projects. Simultaneously, single-family home developers have been pushed to the sidelines as higher mortgage rates and inflation have made home affordability increasingly more challenging. As a result, the existing undersupply of housing is being exacerbated, the propensity to rent is increasing and decreased competition is causing construction cost pressures to subside.

Griffin Capital will discuss how these factors, and more, are creating an increasingly compelling environment for large developers to execute on projects that we believe will benefit from an attractive balance of supply/demand.
