1031 Exchanges

Use a 1031 Exchange to Defer your Capital Gains Taxes So Your Investments Can Grow Faster

Defer capital gains taxes when you sell your property then reinvest in “like-kind” property using a 1031 exchange.

Five Types of 1031 Exchanges

  • The original: simultaneous exchange. One property is sold and the next is bought at the exact same time.
  • Most common: delayed exchange. One property is sold and the replacement property is bought within 180 days.
  • Most unusual: reverse exchange. As the name implies, replacement property is bought before the initial property is sold.
  • Improvement exchange is structured to use some of your capital to improve the property, build a road, for example.
  • Personal property exchange is used for “like-kind” exchanges for other than real estate – such as cattle, aircraft, mineral rights, etc.
