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.
