Today’s Window of Opportunity…  

Despite no anticipated estate tax law changes, we’re still living and doing business in a limited window of opportunity. Real estate was not immune to the economic impacts wrought by the global pandemic. The existing estate tax law (if unchanged) will sunset in 2025. The disruption in the marketplace coupled with a probable near-term change to estate tax law provides investors a unique opportunity to plan under the existing law ($23.4M/married couple at a 40% tax rate) and during pandemic conditions, before the 2025 sunset. Informed by announcements by major employers, many of us at Cushman & Wakefield expect a surge of return-to-work after Labor Day that should again change the direction of real estate fundamentals and improve market conditions.   

…and How to Make the Most of It  

If you do revisit your estate plan, it’s important to talk to a provider experienced in working on portfolios from inception through IRS examination, with diversified case experience covering many issues, legal jurisdictions and property types.
