Despite what the naysayers tell you, investors continue to be interested in the opportunity zone space, as dealflow in the industry continues despite the Coronavirus pandemic. In this podcast, attorney Paul Wassgren from the DLA Piper law firm proves this point with his insights as to how stacking up benefits provides even more tax savings for investors, why he’s so pro-Opportunity Zone, what locations are the most prevalent for investment, and why he thinks real estate may be the saving grace of a recovering economy as construction continues as an “essential business”.
