Perhaps the most significant advantage of Delaware Statutory Trusts is that the unanimous approval of the individual owners (investors) is not required in order to deal with unexpected, adverse developments. During the recent recession, which of course significantly affected the real estate market, some TIC structures were hindered from taking the necessary actions to mitigate loss, simply because one of the owners, a so-called "rogue investor," did not approve of the action desired by the majority. So while DST offerings are selected and structured to lessen the risk from such possibilities, all risk cannot be removed, and it is an additional protection to the investors that the signatory trustee is empowered to take necessary actions (restructure financing, renegotiate leases, sell the property, etc.) to reduce loss.
For investors considering selling real estate and reinvesting in a new property, a 1031 exchange could be a strategic solution to managing assets. Tax-deferred exchanges make it possible to directly reinvest profits from a relinquished property into a new property — without immediately needing to pay taxes on capital gains.
A DST 1031 exchange may be a valuable option to consider if you are an Accredited Investor. This designation applies to those who have an individual net worth or joint net worth exceeding $1 million, excluding the value of your primary residence, or an annual income of more than $200,000 or combined income of more than $300,000. If you qualify for this designation and meet the exchange criteria, you can defer taxes on your profits and put your money into a DST.
