Here at Realized, we help real estate investors invest in Delaware Statutory Trusts (DSTs) using 1031 exchanges. 1031 exchanges allow investors to legally defer capital gains taxes when buying and selling real estate. DSTs also offer a number of other potential benefits for real estate investors - they allow you to expand your real estate portfolio without having to manage the properties yourself, can provide diversification in a real estate portfolio, and can provide access to commercial-grade real estate an investor may not be able to invest in on their own.

As a financial advisor, you want to offer your clients helpful guidance and sound advice—that’s why they engage your services, after all. In many cases, you may suggest investment options and strategies that the client isn’t familiar with, so they rely on you to know the details and to provide suitable suggestions. Depending on your client, you may offer assistance with various tasks ranging from retirement forecasting to budgeting to estate planning. Often, you will recommend investment choices and offer tax management strategies.
The concept of cost basis, or simply basis, is frequently used when it comes to understanding taxes, amortizations, depreciation, and other issues impacting real estate investments.

DSTs can be a tool for growing your real estate portfolio, but they can also be tricky to manage when tax season comes around.
Here at Realized, we help our clients use 1031 Exchanges to invest in DSTs, or Delaware Statutory Trusts.
