For those looking for a value-oriented, real estate investment, then the type of lease is an important part of your decision.
1031 exchanges can be complicated. 1031 exchanges can be frustrating. And, for some, 1031 exchanges can be near impossible. As we’ve said before, our goal at 1031 Crowdfunding is to ensure every 1031 exchange investor has the opportunity to complete a successful exchange.

You have probably heard that when you go through a 1031 property exchange it's necessary to replace the previous mortgage amount. We refer to this as the debt replacement principle. This means the new mortgage for your replacement property must be equal to or greater than the amount owed on the relinquished property. If the new mortgage is less, you must elect to replace the remaining amount of debt with an additional cash contribution.
