Bobby and Kristen knew that they had been outgrowing their apartment in the West Village. When they realized that there was a third child on the way, however, they began to imagine just how uncomfortable their apartment was going to become.

Rising crime rates at home in Sao Paulo had become a daily concern of Rafael and Fernanda, who feared for their children’s safety. Even beach towns around the city or in other parts of Brazil were crime-ridden, offering no respite on the weekends and vacations.
Rafael and Fernanda now own a 4-bedroom apartment in Miami, where their children can walk the streets day and night without fear for their safety. They often have family visit or stay at the apartment when they are back in Brazil. The openness and multi-cultural makeup of Miami Beach were great attracttions.
Robert had been living in Asia for the last 15 years, but had always planned to retire to the Upper West Side of Manhattan where Robert had lived for many years. Planning ahead, Robert was hoping to buy his retirement home well ahead of his move, rent it out, and finance at low rates.
Ultimately, Robert purchased a 4-bedroom condo in the Upper West Side. He obtained a mortgage and rented out the apartment for 5 years. Since retired, Robert has moved back to NYC, and into his apartment, in which he doubled his investment over 5 years.

After 15 years of owning a small studio apartment in the Upper East Side, Suresh was ready to sell the property and trade it in for a much larger apartment in Chelsea, one he planned to use in a couple of years. Without planning, however, these separate transactions could result in a large capital gains tax bill.
Entering into a 1031 exchange, Suresh sold the old property and used that money to purchase a larger investment property in Tribeca. Following strict rules, Suresh avoided paying the capital gains tax on the old property by transferring the tax basis of the old property to the new property.
Todd and Steve live and work in New York City, but found themselves traveling often to Miami, especially during winter months. With each trip, they began spending more time in Downtown Miami, which has been thriving over the last few years, especially with the addition of Brickell City Center.
At a fraction of the price they paid for their NYC apartment, they purchased a 1-bedroom condo at Icon Brickell for $400K. Now they have a pied-a-terre to use year-round in a beautiful, full-service building, only a short Uber or car ride to the beach.
Denise took a senior job with a tech startup in Manhattan and was looking to relocate from Ireland. While her preference was to purchase an apartment, Denise thought it would be best if she rented first so she could explore different neighborhoods, like Madison Square Park, West Chelsea, Meatpacking, NoHo, and SoHo before deciding on a final purchase.
Denise is now renting in a high rise in the Flatiron District, the center of tech in New York City and has fantastic views of Madison Square Park and the Empire State building, reminding her every morning of the opportunities that lie in NYC. Soon she will be buying her own NYC apartment.
Gina and Andrew live in Australia and have always wanted to experience the range of cultural activities and excitement that New York City offers—but without making a full commitment to move to the city. Now in their 50s with senior positions in their firms, they have the leeway to pursue this dream on a part-time basis.
Now Gina and Andrew own a 1-bedroom condo in Columbus Circle that they visit a few times a year for extended periods. They come to see all the Broadway shows, tour the MoMa, take in the MET’s latest exhibits, dine at the trendiest restaurants in SoHo, and stroll Central Park, just two blocks from their home away from home.
