What is a 1031 exchange?

A 1031 exchange allows you to swap one investment property for another and defer the capital gains tax that you would otherwise have to pay at the time of sale. The property you’re selling and the property you’re buying must be "like-kind," which means they must be similar but not necessarily the same quality or grade.

How long do I have to reinvest in a 1031 exchange?

There are two important deadlines to know. You must identify your replacement property within 45 calendar days from the date you sell your property. And you must complete the purchase of your replacement property within 180 calendar days from the date you sell your property. The IRS does not grant extensions.

What happens to depreciation in a 1031 exchange?

If your new property costs the same as the sale price of your old property, your depreciation schedule will remain the same as it was for your old property.

If you "buy up" in your exchange (your new property cost more than you sold your old property for), you treat the buy-up as you would a new addition to an existing property.

If you “buy down,” you will continue your depreciation schedule as if you still owned the old property, but you’ll need to keep track of your depreciation recapture.

What is a Delaware Statutory Trust?

A Delaware Statutory Trust is a separate legal entity that allows you to pool your resources with other accredited investors. Together, you purchase beneficial interests in professionally managed real estate properties, making this a completely passive way to complete a 1031 exchange.
