Hello experts,\n\nI am a 58-year old widow who owns one home (currently renting that one) and\nhas a substantial mortgage on another (which I'm living in). I want to sell\nthe first home (which I own outright) partly due to the fact I cannot keep\nup on it's maintenance. I do not want to move back into it and I have not\nlived there for four years. I am considering a 1031 exchange and obtaining\nan equal or higher value new condo in another state and rent that out. This\nway I will not have to worry about exterior maintence. I will rent that out\nwhich will help to pay for my current mortgage. I do not work as I am\nliving off the rental income of the first home and my inheritance. Does\nthat sound like a good plan?
