Moving from Office to Multi-Family Property with a 1031 Exchange

Office Property

1031 exchanges can be performed on virtually any type of real estate, in any business sector or industry. In this article, we are going to talk about how you can use a 1031 exchange to move from an office property to a multi-family property.

How a 1031 Exchange Operates

A 1031 exchange operates differently than a traditional real estate sale. Rather than selling a property, receiving the net proceeds, and paying capital gains taxes on those proceeds, a 1031 exchange allows you to reinvest those proceeds into a new property and defer the capital gains taxes.

Exchanging from One Industry to Another

The beauty of a 1031 exchange is that you can use it to move from one industry to another. As long as your property is like-kind (most real estate is) and is held for qualifying investment purposes, you can sell a piece of property in one business sector and exchange into a property in a completely different industry. So you can sell an office building and exchange into a multi-family property with a 1031 exchange.
