A Reverse Exchange, also known as a Reverse 1031 Exchange, is a powerful tax strategy that allows real estate investors to acquire a replacement property before selling their relinquished property. In a traditional 1031 exchange, the investor sells their property first and then acquires a replacement property within a strict timeline. However, in a Reverse Exchange, the process is reversed, hence the name.
This strategy is useful in situations where the investor has identified a replacement property but hasn’t been able to sell their existing property within the 45-day identification period of a traditional 1031 exchange. With a Reverse Exchange, the investor can acquire the replacement property first and then sell their relinquished property within a 180-day period. This timeline reversal allows the investor to move quickly and avoid the risk of losing out on a desirable replacement property.
