Conventional real estate investment strategy is built on a straightforward formula. You invest in a property, possibly make some capital improvements, and reap the ongoing returns until your hold strategy dictates a disposition.

There are, however, other nonconventional strategies. One that isn’t touted too often, that can provide an alternative for some investors—especially 1031 investors—is a zero cash flow investment. We should say upfront that this is essentially a tax play, and it is not for …

In the midst of all this chaos, it’s important for all of us to get back to basics. For investors in commercial real estate, that means opportunities that provide long-term stability and the potential for growth. From …

Consequently, both sides are showing a willingness to both bid on and
