Why 1031 Exchanges of Real Estate are Great for the Economy

1031 Exchanges Economy

1031 exchanges of real estate are beneficial for the taxpayer conducting the exchange, as well as the economy as a whole. But many people may not understand why that’s the case. In this article, we are going to explain why 1031 exchanges of real estate benefit the economy.

Encouraging Investment

First and foremost, 1031 exchanges encourage investment in real estate. The ability for taxpayers to defer their capital gains taxes makes re-investing very attractive. Selling a piece of real estate can result in a hefty tax bill on the capital gains from the sale. A 1031 exchange allows taxpayers to defer that tax burden, and continue their investment in another property.

Consider the situation from the perspective of an investor. If the 1031 exchange did not exist and you were required to pay your capital gains taxes, you may hesitate to sell your property. But by doing a 1031 exchange, you can avoid a tax hit with the incentive of reinvesting your funds in bigger, better property. This keeps money moving around the market and stimulates growth!
