1031 Exchange Real Estate Basics

A 1031 exchange refers to Section 1031 of the IRS code which addresses the exchange of real property held for productive use or investment.

No gain or loss shall be recognized on the exchange of property held for productive use in a trade or business or for investment if such property is exchanged solely for property of like kind which is to be held either for productive use in a trade or business or for investment.
- Section 1031(a)(1) IRS Code

In a typical sale of investment or commercial property, the owner can be taxed on any capital gains realized by the sale. However, the 1031 exchange allows an investor to defer payment of capital gains tax by disposing of one investment property and exchanging into another without incurring immediate tax liability. Thus, the earning power of the tax deferred dollars continues to work for the investor through the new investment property.

The 1031 exchange offers more than favorable tax benefits. It can also be used as a means of strategic investment planning. The smart investor can use a 1031 exchange to reach beyond tax deferment and fulfill a broader financial strategy. For instance, an investor might exchange into a property with a superior location, easier management, or improved cash flow.

The 1031 exchange is an excellent tool for any investor seeking to preserve, create and build wealth through investment real estate. To learn more about 1031 exchange, refer to Section 1031 of the IRS Code.

1031 Exchange Real Estate Investment Options

The types of real estate that qualify for a 1031 exchange under IRC Section 1031 include most real property held for investment. Some examples are:

  • Raw land
  • Motels and hospitality properties
  • Office and retail buildings
  • Apartments and multifamily properties
  • Farms, horse farms, and agri-business property
  • Warehousing and industrial real estate
  • Single family rentals and vacation rentals

Sometimes called a like kind exchange, a 1031 involves the exchange of real property for real property. Thus, any combination of real property types can be exchanged. For example, a warehouse can be exchanged for an apartment building, a motel can be exchanged for raw land, or a bed and breakfast can be exchanged for a retail building. Also, an investor might opt to exchange one large investment property for several smaller investment properties.
