Tax casualty? Trumps sister lists her oceanfront estate.

Real Estate Agent with Beachfront Realty 3220434

I think this may be the new trend thanks to the real estate tax reform. So many millionaires use Florida as their primary residences because of our no income tax status plus FL is awesome. That may change as the limits on real estate tax reform takes hold in 2018.

Could it be a slap in the face to her brother or just ditching her oceanfront mansion before everyone else starts? A question we will have answered no doubt soon. Maryanne Trump Barry the older sister of Donald has listed her Palm Beach estate which is located across the street from Mar-lago for $23.9M.

The very dated home sits on 200 feet of oceanfront. Most would think "teardown" and that will probably be the case here. Stay tuned....

Marco, for some reason I don't look at a home for $23Million to be a teardown.   Those views must be fabulous!

Good afternoon Marco,

And the Governor here thinks the tax law is unconstitutional compared to what he has here!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

What a great property, even if it is a teardown, the land is irreplaceable.  At that financial level, I have not seen anyone worry about taxes all that much...A

There is no issue paying the property taxes for them. The issue arises when they can't deduct it anymore!

200 ft direct ocean front in Palm yeah lol!A friend of my father bought 2 side by side old mansions and tore them down then built a 30,000 sq ft place which sits on 400 ft of ocean front. Does that make sense now?

Interesting, like most keep us posted.  I'm sure with her money, the tax issue is not an issue for her

Marco - Funny that members do not see the problem for these people to pay tax, but do not see the issue with not being able to write it off. And yes, I do not know how it would play out.

The fact that this is Trump's sister add some flavor to the story. (LOL)

I was on Worth Avenue last week but avoided Trump. Yes, I would bet on a tear down but as they say location, location, location.
