Real Estate Exchanges

The most common type of real estate exchange is the 1031 Exchange, also known as the “like-kind” exchange for Real Estate or Real Property. In general, any type of U.S. real property held by the client for productive use in a trade or business, or for investment purposes can be exchanged for more real property as long as the properties are of “like-kind”, regardless of grade or quality. maintains an active database of properties by owners who specifically desire a 1031 real estate exchange to defer paying taxes.
