    Thanks. I deal with it daily, all day, every day.

    I'm right on the edge of losing six deals for a smaller frozen dessert retailer that is coming into the area by buying 100+ yr old buildings in the smaller city downtowns in our metro, doing the restoration with retail on the first floor and office or residential condo on the upper floors.

    This retailer is questioning whether he should be taking this kind of risk now or wait until the after the 2012 general. Anecdotal – sure, but I hear way too much of this. The retailer has 18-20 jobs per store for mostly high school and college age kids plus the construction jobs at risk to do the restoration and build out plus the tax revenue to the cities/school districts.

    The real estate partnership is also at risk from the democrats proposed ‘carried interest’ tax increase from cap gains to earned income. That not only affects hedge fund managers, but also real estate partnerships that have been taxed at the cap gains rate for 60 plus years.
