Did you know that it is possible to sell certain qualified properties without paying capital gains taxes in the year of the sale? Title companies, real estate professionals and many casual investors already know about laws regarding 1031 exchanges, but some confusion still exists among new investors and even some seasoned investors when it comes to 1031 exchange properties.
At Precision Global Corporation, we recognize the benefits of saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in capital gains taxes in order to fully optimize your portfolio. That’s why every project we take on is fully 1031 compatible.
A 1031 exchange is basically a swap of one investment property for another. An investment property is sold, a qualifying 1031 replacement property of equal or greater value is purchased, and any capital gains taxes on the sale of the initial investment property are deferred until you no longer are interested in making further 1031 investments and you sell your property.
The fact that this process lets you maximize your investments, and thus your potential returns, might be the most exciting 1031 exchange information you can learn, but there’s much more.
A 1031 exchange, also called a Starker Exchange, is an extremely useful tool for deferring your taxes. This strategy is used by the most successful real estate investors in the world. If you’re interested in doing a 1031 exchange or need more help understanding the process of acquiring a 1031 replacement property beyond what this page explains (along with those linked to below), please don’t hesitate to call us. One of our representatives will be glad to walk you through every step of the way.
