Real Estate—Bargain Sale


Bargain Sale of Real Estate Diagram


How It Works

  1. You sell property to Taylor for less than its fair-market value—usually what you paid for it
  2. Taylor pays you cash for agreed sale price, and you receive an income-tax deduction
  3. Taylor may use or sell the property



  • You receive cash from sale of property (sale price is often the original cost basis)
  • You receive a federal income-tax deduction for the difference between the sale price and the fair-market value of the property
  • Taylor receives a valuable piece of property that we may sell or use to further our mission
