The Benefits of a 1031 Exchange

An IRC Section 1031, a properly structured 1031 exchange, allows an investor to sell a property, and then reinvest the proceeds in a new property and defer all capital gain taxes.

IRC Section 1031 (a)(1) states:

“No gain or loss shall be recognized on the exchange of real property held for productive use in a trade or business or for investment, if such real property is exchanged solely for real property of like-kind which is to be held either for productive use in a trade or business or for investment.”

In order to understand the full potential of these benefits, it is important to have a comprehensive knowledge of the exchange process and the Section 1031 code.

An accurate understanding of the key term “like-kind” – often mistakenly thought to mean the same exact types of property – can reveal possibilities that might have been dismissed or overlooked. 

There are many other details that must be considered and rules to abide by when completing a 1031 exchange real estate transaction. To help our customers understand the complexities of this process, we’re hosting a one-hour seminar presented by Greg Lehrman with Asset Preservation, a subsidiary of Stewart Title. Asset Preservation, a 1031 exchange qualified intermediary and has helped thousands of investors achieve their financial goals by using this tool.
