IPA 1031 Market Update – In Partnership with Mountain Dell Consulting

The syndicated 1031/DST market continues to be resilient, offering retail investors real opportunities to invest in institutionally managed commercial real estate. Strong performance has led to consistent distributions and positive full cycle returns. The global pandemic aside, we continued to see a surge in new offerings and capital flow and are expecting the same in 2021. As we turn our attention to the new administration, it’s clear 1031 is once again facing the possibility of extinction.

Watch the IPA and Mountain Dell Consulting as they co-hosted a thoughtful discussion on the past, present and future of this important investment opportunity. We provided a complete summary of 2020 performance, a 2021 outlook, reviewed the incredible data and research the IPA Data & Research committee has been mining, and see directly from those on the front line of our advocacy initiatives.
