What to Do When Replacement Property Competition is High

Replacement Property Competition

So you’re in the process of exchanging your property in a 1031 transaction, but competition is high for the replacement properties you’re looking at. What can you do? In this article, we are going to discuss what to do when competition for replacement property is high during your 1031 exchange.

Consider a Reverse Exchange

If you haven’t yet sold your relinquished property, you may be able to do a reverse 1031 exchange in which you first purchase your replacement property before selling your relinquished property. This allows a taxpayer to snatch up a replacement property before another motivated buyer and then sell their relinquished property in a subsequent transaction – all while deferring their capital gains taxes.

Work with a Qualified Intermediary

Working with a qualified intermediary is a great way to find suitable replacement property for your transaction. Your intermediary can walk you through the process step-by-step, explain to you the requirements for identifying replacement property, and even help you find specific properties that fit your needs.
