Offering Access to a 1031 Exchange

A Delaware Statutory Trust (“DST”) is a pass-through entity that may be used by investors in a 1031 Exchange for tax-deferred access to institutional-quality real estate. Unlike other 1031 Exchange options, a DST is a trust that owns 100 percent of the real estate and has up to 1,999 investors who invest the proceeds from the sale of commercial real estate through a 1031 Exchange.


Meeting Basic Requirements

Investors must meet these guidelines to achieve complete tax deferral through a 1031 Exchange.

  • All net sale proceeds must be reinvested in one or more “like-kind” replacement properties
  • The replacement property’s asset value must be greater than or equal to the relinquished property’s value
  • Debt requirements on the replacement property must be greater than or equal to debt from the relinquished property
  • A Qualified Intermediary must be used as part of the transaction process
A transaction authorized by Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code which allows an individual to defer capital gains taxes on the proceeds of a recently sold property by exchanging it for a “like-kind” property.
Any real estate held for use in a trade, business or for investing generally qualifies as a "like-kind" property. Examples include:  
  • Office buildings
  • Multifamily properties
  • Industrial warehouses
  • Retail centers
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels and motels
  • Single-family rentals
  • Easements
  • Tenancy-in-Common (TIC) interests
  • Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) interests
  • Resource Growth Lines

    Following the Transaction Process

    A successful 1031 Exchange transaction must follow this time-sensitive process to completion.

    The 180-day Transaction Schedule

    If a replacement property is not found within the 45-day window, tax deferment may be in jeopardy. Closing on the replacement property must be the earlier of 180 calendar days from closing on the sale of the relinquished property or the tax filing due date for the year in which the relinquished property was sold, unless tax filing extension was obtained.
