Increase in Summer Travel Spurs Interest/Questions/Demand in 1031 Vacation Property

Got the summer itch for traveling? If so, you’re like most Americans. Based on our recent research, we’re gearing up for a very busy travel summer.

Most of us, having been in our homes for a very long time, now want to discover new places, cuisines, landscapes, activities and simply reconnect and refresh. Whatever the reason for travel and mode of travel, we’re hearing about trends of:

  • “Bleisure” trips / ‘workations’ combining business/work travel and vacations for longer periods of time
  • Comfort in sticking closer to home and opting for Airbnb, VRBO or vacation home rental properties
  • Domestic travel and staying local or closer to home
  • Experiencing the great outdoors and scenic beauty in national parks and beach destinations
  • Road trips. RV parks. Tiny home camping or glamping
  • Purposeful excursions and experience-driven travel

And with these travel trends blossoming, what will this mean for investors?  If you are an investor, should you think about renting your investment property? Convert a long-term rental into short or extended stay rentals? Make a new purchase?  These are great questions to discuss with your financial planner or tax advisor and IPX1031, as a 1031 Qualified Intermediary, is the expert resource for you and your advisors regarding structuring vacation property purchases and sales as tax deferred transactions.   Here are a few tips for 1031 and vacation properties:

Bottom line – 2021 travel and vacation plans are booming.

With the current market moving as it is, an understanding of Section 1031 is essential to creating opportunities for investors looking for options to reposition assets, generate more cash flow and protect estates.
