Exchange investors today have a tough job. Whether they’re facing-off against a crowded market, rushing to meet the 45-day identification deadline, seeking the right real estate investment, or needing to diversify, 1031 Crowdfunding offers solutions.
In the world of 1031 exchanges, it’s difficult to know where to begin. One option to consider is a Delaware Statutory Trust. Although not a new concept, current tax laws have made this type of investment an increasingly popular option that could be worth looking into for 1031 exchange investors.
There are very specific requirements for identifying and acquiring potential like-kind replacement properties in your 1031 exchange transaction. Replacement properties that you are considering for acquisition in your 1031 exchange should be identified to your Qualified Intermediary (Accommodator) and must be identified no later than midnight of the 45th calendar day following the close of your relinquished property sale transaction.
The Internal Revenue Ruling 2004-86 names seven deadly sins that limit the Delaware Statutory Trust ("DST") trustee's power. Deadly sins can sound intimidating and engaging in any one of these prohibited acts can have serious consequences for the DST and its beneficiaries.
Whether you are a financial advisor with a client who is interested in Delaware Statutory Trusts (DSTs) or a real estate investor looking to learn more about the benefits of DSTs, here are a few key factors/questions you should consider in order to decide if a DST is suitable for your investment needs.
