Our depth and experience in managing successful growth gained through the years as deal-makers, corporate real estate managers, and executives speak for itself. IRS 170 is greatly underutilized as a solution for corporate real estate and nonprofit funding. The lack of utilizing this IRC 170 is mainly due to the need for specialized expertise throughout the process and limited knowledge of those parties involved throughout the transaction may have.

Most property owners and industry professionals overlook and underutilized the IRS’s excellent solution to these challenges. A solution which optimizing the return on investment for investors while also benefiting society. There are a number of reasons why this IRS solution isn’t being utilized:
  • “One size fits all” does not apply because the desired outcome by all parties encompasses a wide range of possibilities, demanding a customized strategy to meet the desired outcome.
  • Expertise in a variety of fields is required.
  • There is a need for more professional involvement.
  • It is a multi-leg transaction.
  • Lengthy process.

Easy Peasy.

Is it really that easy?

The complexity of the transaction comes from multiple directions as follow. A) Requires specialized experts (legal, tax, financial planning, and brokerage service, closing, appraisal) specialized means specialized for example tax doesn’t mean any tax has to be a tax specialized in the IRC 170. Same with others profession not any legal, appraisal, broker, financial planner even title company. B) Process: the process is different form one transaction to another. C) Property each property will is different type, holding and outcome. D) Donor unspoken words, why, what is it for me, control, liability, etc. E) Donee assuming the wrong assumption of the transaction as easy peasy. F) Donee other assumption, problem, liability, risk, expense, handling, management, etc.

Challenge & Solution,  Gifting real estate for nonprofits is a unique area of expertise, it is a lengthy process with greater in-depth expertise in a number of areas. From development, residential, commercial, investment, financial planning, tax, business modeling, and corporate strategy.

It is about value added. Although the mobile home is classified under residential real estate, a broker who is specializing in selling residential may not be familiar with the required steps, forms, and strategy to conduct a mobile home transaction. Real estate has a number of classes and subclass. A commercial broker specializing in light industrial wouldn’t know the terms or skills required for hotels, vineyards, golf courses, net lease property, offices, or others. The value added by a commercial broker who is specializing in hotels trying to sell a luxury house is both damaging and negative.

In the nonprofit world missing the opportunity commonly happened by misidentifying the risk level and holding on to the wrong end of the stick. It is not real estate it is a different world with a different language, unspoken words, skills.

You can count on our specialized expertise in the area of gifting real estate. We are committed to helping your organization we are on a mission to help your vision.

Starting from research & identifying, strategizing, to maximizing.

Opportunities and challenges:

Real estate is almost doubled in the last few years. Providing both challenges and opportunities. Challenges for the landlord with the tax and opportunity for the expertise to provide a solution for the both landlord and NFP.

Take for example A tailor-made opportunity for NFP always comes from the lowest adjusted basis, highest capital appreciation property held for the long-term.

Real estate asset types, Ownership structures, and taxation

Taxation long-term capital gain. Vs Short term

  • Uncaptured depreciation section 1250 at 25%

A- for public charity: Receive greater of fair market value or adjusted cost basis deduction. 30% of AGI and five years carry-forward.

B- Private foundation: Lesser of fair market value or adjusted cost basis. 20% of AGI with five years carry-forward. Real estate may be conducive for testamentary funding for a private foundation to the extent the property receives a stepped-up basis. Nonprofit concerns:

  • Not being able to sell the property in a timely manner 28%
  • Getting stuck with the operating costs pending the sale of the property 18%
  • Environmental liquidity risk 16%

In 2017 $410,200,000,000 were donated to charitable organization . With less than 1% from real estate.
The complexity involve in gifting real estate property, followed by the donor unawareness of available options, and charitable organization unwilling to take over certain properties unless it is ideal case scenarios around the corner and free and clear are the major contributor to the low percentage of real estate gifting.

$5.1 Billion to a single organization.

Innovation Gift (2017)

In October 2017, Shidler donated an additional $117 million, in cash and real estate ground leases, increasing his total gift to $228 million. Shidler’s $228 million gift is the largest individual donation in the 110-year history of the University of Hawai‘i[17], and makes him the second largest known donor to any public business school nationwide.[18]

Income from ground lease payments will provide steady and increasing revenue to the College. Over the life of the 99-year ground leases, contractual income to the Shidler College of Business will average $21 million a year and total $2.1 billion. That income stream will be used to fund renovations and new programs, and will materially increase the number of available scholarships.[19]

After each ground lease expires, the ownership of each office building and hotel will revert to the College. At that time, it is estimated that the College’s stake in this portfolio will be worth in excess of $5.1 billion.[20]
