If you are interested in selling your real estate, the phrase “1031 Exchange” has certainly come up once or twice in your research, as an outright sale can trigger large tax consequences. The capital gains and depreciation recapture taxes can be a serious dent in the return you expected to earn from the sale of your real estate. A 1031 exchange is a process by which an investor can defer the taxes they would pay upon sale of their investment property. It is important to understand how the 1031 exchange can be utilized.

A 1031 exchange may be performed if the property sold and the following property or properties purchased are both considered investment property. Investment properties are those that are used for business or investment purposes. Raw land, land with mineral rights, multifamily, and commercial real estate can all qualify as “like-kind” for the purposes of a 1031 exchange. Any property that falls outside that definition would not qualify. A primary residence or any property in which one stays more than two weeks in a year is NOT considered an investment property.

Again, an investment property must be exchanged for another investment property. Properties can only be exchanged if they are used for investment purposes like residential rentals, multifamily, condominiums for rent, commercial, industrial, retail etc. Furthermore, there are many 1031 exchange alternatives one may consider. A Delaware Statutory Trust is a great example. With DST real estate, an investor is able to exchange into properties and own a fractional interest in the real estate. Instead of investing the entirety of the proceeds into another property, one for one, an individual is able to invest in multiple pieces of property as a fractional and passive owner. Under the DST structure, fractional real estate ownership is still considered eligible for 1031 exchange. This is a helpful way to potentially diversify into a portfolio of properties, thereby buffering the risk of having “all your eggs in one basket” by buying a single property. Utilizing the DST structure, one can own fractional interest of multiple properties with the opportunity for several geographic locations as well as with various asset managers running each real estate investment as part of a diversified 1031 solution into DSTs.

These are illustrative examples of 1031 DST offerings. Future available 1031 DST offerings and tenants may be different. Diversification does not guarantee profits or protect against losses.
