A 1031 exchange, also known as a like-kind exchange, is a tax-deferment strategy that allows real estate investors to defer capital gains taxes on the sale of investment property. This means that instead of paying taxes on the profits from the sale of the property, the investor can use those funds to reinvest in a new property and defer the taxes until a future sale.
To qualify for a 1031 exchange, the properties being sold and purchased must be “like-kind” properties, which means they must be of similar nature, character, or class. This includes any kind of real estate, whether it be residential, commercial, or industrial.
There are strict rules and timelines that must be followed when participating in a 1031 exchange. For example, the investor must identify a replacement property within 45 days of the sale of their current property and complete the exchange within 180 days.
At 1031 Exchange Place, we specialize in facilitating these types of exchanges and can guide you through the process to ensure that you maximize your tax savings while finding the perfect replacement property. We believe that a 1031 exchange can be a powerful tool for real estate investors to build and grow their portfolios while minimizing their tax liabilities.
