And you thought 1031 Exchanges Were Just for Real Estate!

Edmund & Wheeler, Inc. is synonomous with 1031 Exchanges. You might not find this as fascinating as I did, but here's a 1031 exchange I've never heard of or even thought possible.

"The Molitor Stradivari" is a violin that was handcrafted in 1697 by Antonio Stradivari and was recently sold for $3.6M making it the most expensive instrument EVER sold at auction. The name "Stradivarius" has become a superlative often associated with excellence; to be called "the Stradivari" of any field is to be deemed the finest there is. The seller of the violin utilized Section 1031, and Edmund & Wheeler, Inc. to defer his sizeable capital gains on the sale!

Read the full story and hear the violin being played by its new owner! Truly amazing!
