Makes a good case for a horse, tree, a piece of rope.

Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. That's my story and I am sticking to it.

I know how popular real estate is as an investment, but there are more ways to lose money in real estate than I care to deal with. Let alone the midnight "fix the toilet" calls .

I feel for the victims.

Oh wow - that's bad! So just "anybody" can hold your money in these so called "1031 exchanges"? Hmmmm - I think I would think twice before letting some organization hold that kind of dough unless it were a chartered bank or a well known investment firm.

I bet she wishes she had just paid the taxes outright.

Ouch, ouch and ouch!!!!

I would think this money would be in escrow for that period of time.

Sounds like fraud. That @$$h0!3 will go to prison. Regulated or not!

Hope they put in in maximum security!
