3 Ways to Maximize your Gain with a 1031 Exchange

Maximize Your Gains

A 1031 exchange allows you to defer your taxes and maximize your gain when selling real property. In this article, we are going to offer three tips for maximizing your gain and deferring your taxes with a 1031 exchange of real estate.

Exchange into a Bigger Replacement Property

One of the benchmarks of a 1031 exchange is that you need to go up in value, equity, and debt on your replacement property. This will keep your money compounding and building wealth over time in a bigger investment property.

Exchange into a Different Segment of the Market

You can also exchange into a different market segment with a 1031 transaction. The great thing about real estate exchanges is that nearly all real estate is like-kind to all other real estate. That means you could exchange out of a relinquished property in the retail market and into a replacement property in the hotel industry. This can allow you to move your money into the most advantageous market segments.

Exchange into a Less Management Intensive Property

If you own an apartment building or something else that requires a lot of management work on your part, a 1031 exchange allows you to move your investment into a less management intensive property. This is especially beneficial for older taxpayers who many not want to be as involved with their properties as they once did.

4 Beneficial 1031 Exchange Options

1031 Exchange Options

When conducting a 1031 exchange, an exchangor has many options to consider. In this article, we are going to discuss some of the various options available to taxpayers conducting 1031 exchanges, and the benefits of each.

1031 Exchange Options

Here are some of the many options you have when exchanging 1031 property:

  • An exchangor can exchange out of a property in one area, and into a property in another area, so long as both properties are within the US.
  • An exchangor can exchange raw land for income-producing real property.
  • An exchangor can use a 1031 exchange to consolidate multiple properties into one property that is easier to manage.
  • An exchangor can exchange out of a management intensive property and into a property that has fewer management fees.

Each of these scenarios has its benefits. However, every taxpayer conducting an exchange is different and should approach their situation strategically. That’s where a qualified intermediary can really be a big help. When you hire a qualified intermediary for your 1031 exchange, they are your advisor for all things related to your exchange. They can answer all of your questions throughout the exchange process.

Is a 1031 Exchange Worth the Trouble?

1031 Exchange Trouble

Many people are aware of the benefits of a 1031 exchange, but might not want to go through the hassle of setting up an exchange – thinking that they’d rather just sell their property, pay their capital gains taxes, and be done with it. But a 1031 exchange really isn’t as much of a hassle as many people think. In this article, we are going to explain why a 1031 exchange of real estate is worth any associated “trouble.”

The Benefits of a 1031 Real Estate Exchange

A 1031 exchange allows you to defer your capital gains taxes when selling real estate as long as you move those net proceeds into a like-kind investment property.

That’s a significant amount of money you can save by conducting a 1031 exchange. In a typical sale, that money would be gone – out of your hands after the sale. But a 1031 exchange allows you to hold onto that capital gains tax money and reinvest it in a like-kind property. The benefit to you is that your money continues to compound and build over time. You can even continue deferring those taxes over time by arranging 1031 exchanges every time you wish to see your property.

1031 Intermediary Services

A qualified intermediary can advise you on your exchange, answer any lingering questions you might have, and prepare your 1031 exchange documents so you are ready for closing. The qualified intermediaries at Commercial Partners Exchange Company have two decades of experience facilitating exchanges of real property.

The Importance of Balancing Value, Equity & Debt in a 1031 Exchange

Value, Equity, Debt

In this article, we are going to discuss the importance of balancing value, equity, and debt when it comes to 1031 exchange transactions.

Balancing Value, Equity and Debt

Typically, an Exchangor will acquire replacement property that is “up or equal” in Value (price) and will roll over all of the Equity (net proceeds) from the relinquished property into the replacement property.

Further, to the extent that the Exchangor was relieved of liabilities and debt, such as mortgages on the relinquished property, the debt relief must be offset by (1) new liabilities or mortgages taken on the conjunction with the purchase of the replacement property, OR (2) by investing additional cash in the replacement property equal to the amount of liabilities and debts that were discharged.

A QI’s Role

A Qualified Intermediary (QI) is a critical component in the success of a transaction:

  • Provide a safe harbor structure to exchange transactions according to the Treasury Regulations.
  • Hold proceeds from the sale of relinquished properties.
  • Isolate the receipt of any taxable proceeds.
  • Utilize the proceeds to purchase like-kind replacement properties.
  • Prepare the required exchange documents and instructions.

If you are looking to defer your capital gains on the sale of real estate, your first step is to contact a qualified intermediary who can get you started with the process.
