In today’s concluding segment of the Real Estate Syndication Show episode, wrapping up our five-part series, we reconnect with Eric Most—an expert in strategic real estate investing and philanthropy. Our primary focus remains the often overlooked aspect of real estate investing: the exit strategy.

Many investors find themselves ensnared in a 1031 exchange cycle, where death becomes an unintended and somber final exit plan. Eric introduces a life-affirming alternative: gifting real estate assets to a donor-advised fund or a supporting organization, such as the National Christian Foundation (NCF). This approach not only allows investors to bypass capital gains tax and depreciation recapture but also secures a fair market value deduction—all without the need to pass away to break the 1031 exchange cycle.

Furthermore, Eric meticulously details the tax benefits and distinctions between private foundations, donor-advised funds, and supporting organizations. While private foundations offer more control, he emphasizes their lower tax efficiency compared to the simpler and more cost-effective options of donor-advised funds and supporting organizations, both providing fair market value deductions.
