1031 Exchanging Apartment Buildings

1031 Exchange Apartment Building

Taxpayers and investors can exchange out of and into a wide variety of different property types. In this article, we are going to discuss 1031 exchanges of apartment buildings.

What Type of Property Suits You?

When considering investing in real estate, think about the type of property that’s right for you. Apartment buildings can be a great source of continuous revenue – with rent being paid monthly. However, be aware that apartment buildings can be management intensive compared to other properties. You need to deal with tenants, fix any maintenance issues that arise, and more. If you’re reaching retirement age, you may not want to have to deal with all these issues. In that case, it might be in your best interest to exchange into a less management intensive property.

Exchanging Up

Whatever property you choose, you should always consider a 1031 exchange to defer your capital gains taxes. Like-kind exchanges allow you to exchange up into a bigger and better property. That could mean exchanging from a duplex to a fourplex, or from an apartment complex into a restaurant. In any case, you can avoid a hefty capital gains tax bill by exchanging your property in a 1031 transaction.
