A 1031 exchange allows investors to defer their capital gains tax when selling a commercial property. This type of exchange is beneficial because it prevents the investor from having to pay the hefty taxes associated with selling a property and allows them to reinvest in another property without taking a huge financial hit. To do this, an intermediary must be used that can hold the proceeds for the sale until the new purchase is made. It's important for investors to understand all of the rules and regulations surrounding 1031 exchanges so that they can take full advantage of this great opportunity. That said, if done correctly, using a 1031 exchange can be an invaluable tool for real estate investors looking to grow their portfolios without getting bogged down by hefty taxes!
