The largest inventory of DSTs in the country

A Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) allows you to co-invest with other 1031 exchange investors in one or numerous institutional-grade properties. When you invest in a DST, you are assigned a fractional ownership of equity and debt, fulfilling your exchange requirements. You will receive a 1099 for ordinary income, 1098 allowing for mortgage interest write-off, and an operating statement or profit & loss statement for depreciation. With a DST, investors can still enjoy the benefits of owning real estate without dealing with the day-to-day responsibilities of actively managing real estate.

DST Ownership Example

$10,000,000 Raise / 7.0% Yield Rate / 60% LTV

The Debt is Handled

One of the requirements for a 1031 exchange is to take on "equal or greater debt" in the replacement property to what you had in the property you are exchanging. A DST takes the headache out of arranging financing and already has non-recourse financing set up for you.

The DST secures non-recourse financing at favorable terms.

The DST sponsor leverages their strong lender relationships to obtain financing terms investors would most likely not be able to obtain on their own.

The DST assigns the pro-rata share of debt to the investor.

The DST assigns the benefits of the debt but retains the obligations. The debt is non–recourse to the investor. The investor does not need to qualify for the debt personally.

Investors can relax and know the debt is handled!

Investors fulfill their debt requirements without the headache associated with qualifying for and being liable for the debt obligations.

  • "When elsewhere, at the last moment my initial identified exchange property fell through, I thought I was out of options. I came across 1031 Crowdfunding's website and gave them a call. Their assistance allowed me to effortlessly meet my complex and substantial goals. When things were chaotic and others were trying to sell, Ed Fernandez and 1031 Crowdfunding were helping. I highly recommend 1031 Crowdfunding to anyone dealing with a 1031 Exchange for the first time! They have patience and their advice is solid without seeming to be self-serving. They are unique!" Carl N. Metairie, Louisiana
  • “Ed’s deep knowledge of the real estate market as a whole, from the pluses and minuses of various property classifications (retirement communities, student housing, industrial, storage spaces, etc...) all the way to the ins and outs of the legal aspects of DSTs, made our process a painless one, from the minute we sold our property to the time we received our first monthly check for its replacement. Truly, one of the best business experiences I've had in some time. I would use Ed and 1031 Crowdfunding again in a heartbeat and recommend him to anyone currently considering doing a 1031 exchange.” Mary J. McCall, Idaho
  • “Edward, I would just like to thank you and 1031 Crowdfunding for your most professional response to my DST needs. I don't think that you could have reacted faster or fulfilled my needs any better. I shall of course use your services for all future needs.” Joe B. Jamul, CA

Don't settle for paying taxes on your 1031 exchange boot; put your boot to work.

Let us explain. Imagine you’ve made a $200,000 profit on the sale of your relinquished property, but your replacement property will only cost $150,000 to acquire. The remaining $50,000 is considered boot and will become taxable unless you find a way to eliminate it. You could look for a second replacement property to acquire, but you may not have enough time within your 45-day identification period. Likewise, $50,000 may not be enough to purchase a worthwhile investment property, and you probably aren’t interested in investing additional funds out of your pocket in order to afford a property you would consider worthwhile. So you might consider accepting the tax consequences.

But wait! We have a solution.

Use the excess cash to acquire beneficial interests in a Delaware Statutory Trust (“DST”). With a DST, you choose the amount you wish to invest. You can invest the exact amount necessary to avoid incurring a 1031 exchange boot – not a penny more, not a penny less than you have allocated for your replacement property. Why pay taxes on excess cash when you can invest it and let it earn you additional income?

Leverage your income.

Say you don’t take our advice. You pocket the excess cash and pay the taxes. Now, what do you do with the cash? You’re probably not going to let it sit in a zero to low-interest paying bank account. If you’re going to invest it anyway, wouldn’t it be better to invest the total amount pre-tax rather than the after-tax amount? You can leverage the income you’ve already earned to produce greater amounts of future income when you defer taxes and re-invest your pre-tax cash.

What about Diversification?

Perhaps you’re thinking paying tax on a small amount of boot is a small price to pay for an opportunity to liquidate some of your real estate investments and diversify your portfolio. May we suggest that diversification among your real estate portfolio can potentially have the same risk-reducing effect? When you complete your 1031 exchange by acquiring two (or more) replacement properties, you are limiting your dependence on a single property to meet your investment goals. When you invest your excess cash into a DST, you can afford to purchase a percentage of investment-grade real estate. You can diversify your real estate portfolio and offer a second opportunity to earn income if the primary investment property does not produce as expected.

Have a backup plan.

Don’t be surprised by boot as you near the end of your exchange transactions. Plan ahead and put a backup plan in place. If you identify a property within a DST as one of your three replacement properties, you are covered in the event that you have boot in the form of excess cash after the acquisition of your replacement property. The excess cash can be invested in the DST and your taxable boot is eliminated.

While the information provided above has been researched and is thought to be reasonable and accurate, it’s important to talk with your tax professional regarding your personal tax situation.
