Understanding the potential advantages of the 200% Rule in a 1031 exchange By Dwight Kay, Founder & CEO; Betty Friant, Senior VP and The Kay Properties Team made famous by the popular TV game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

So, which is the best op - tion to use? Every situation is different. However, for those investors who want to maxi - mize their potential options and identify four or more replace - ment properties, the 200%Rule is a good choice to explore.
