What is a 1031 Exchange

A 1031 exchange is simply a method by which a real property owner disposes of one property and acquires another without having to pay any capital gains tax on the transaction. In an ordinary sale transaction, the property owner is taxed on any gain realized by the sale of the property. In an exchange, the tax on the exchange is deferred indefinitely.

1031 exchanges are authorized by Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code. Careful adherence to the requirements of Section 1031 is important in maintaining the tax-free status of the transaction. The sale of the relinquished property and the subsequent reinvestment in a replacement property can qualify as a trade or exchange by means of an exchange agreement and the services of a qualified intermediary (see 1031 intermediary). An intermediary can guide you through the IRS's regulations, making a 1031 exchange easy, inexpensive, and safe. You should also consider having your accountant and/or attorney review any real estate transaction.

What is a 1031 Tenancy in common Exchange

Tenant-in-Common Ownership, also known as TIC ownership, is rapidly becoming the most popular choice among real estate exchangers seeking ideal replacement properties. While it is often difficult to locate a property that has the right purchase price, debt ratio and closing schedule within the 45-day time limit, TIC properties are flexible enough to meet almost any 1031 exchanger's needs. A TIC interest represents co-ownership between two or more investors and is especially suited to investors involved in the 1031 exchange process because the properties can be identified and closed in a timely manner thanks to pre-arranged financing.

The following factors have increased the popularity of Tenants in Common investments:

  • The investment property marketplace is over 4 trillion dollars
  • In California, 90% of all investment properties listed and sold over 3 million dollars were involved in a 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange
  • Most non-institutional investors, (individuals,) are not familiar with the strict provisions of the IRC 1031  
  • Owner age shift: 170,000 reach the age of 65 daily
