1031 exchange and investing in Columbus, OH

Hello fellow investors.   I have a property under contract to sell.  I would like to use a 1031 exchange to maximize my return and use my proceeds of around 40k to invest in a small multi-unit in Columbus, Oh.  If anyone has a reference of a good qualified intermediary, it would be greatly appreciated.  Also, any leads on a cash flow 2-4 unit would also be appreciated. all advice welcome! Thanks in advance!

 Hi Anthony, depending on commercial lender you would be talking to 40k at 20% down (max purchasing power) would probably put you at $200k purchase price. You can get a 2-4 unit in that price range. B and C class areas for 4 units are going under 200k. Duplexes in B areas go for about 140-180. you can get a duplex around ohio state.
