August and September 2017 have been highlighted by a series of catastrophic storms. Hurricane Harvey roared ashore in South Texas, then parked on top of the Houston area, dumping more than 50 inches of rain in some areas. And, as of this writing, we are just beginning to assess the damage caused by Hurricane Irma.
More than 10 years ago, the securitized 1031 Exchange market (real estate interests that are packaged and sold as securities and that qualify for 1031 exchange purposes) was dominated by tenant-in-common (TIC) Sponsors. TIC investments grew at a frantic pace from the start of the new millennium, increasing in volume from under $500 million of annual equity raised in 2002 to over $3.6 billion annually by 20061.
You might already be familiar with the 1031 exchange rules. Thanks to the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 1031, you can exchange proceeds from your investment real estate property sale into a like-kind property, within a certain time frame. Thanks to the exchange, you might be able to avoid a tax hit on the profits.
Part 3 in the Realized series "2017 Tax Reform Impact on Real Estate" Realized is carefully monitoring the discussions in Washington concerning tax reform and receives regular updates from trade group lobbyists. Among the topics discussed is the elimination of IRC §1031 “like-kind” exchanges. Legislators in favor of doing away with 1031 exchanges often cite a 2014 Joint Committee on Taxation Study that estimates this will increase Federal tax revenues by $40.6 billion over ten years.

Real estate investors contemplating a 1031 exchange must make many decisions regarding their choice of replacement property. Investors must determine the type of property, location of the asset, and whether or not to reinvest into multiple assets. Investors then have to thoroughly evaluate their options and select just a few potential choices -- all within 45 days from selling their investment property!
A 1031 exchange is a tax-deferred exchange of one investment property for another. The IRS permits investors to sell an investment property and defer capital gains, provided they reinvest the proceeds into a replacement property. If you are currently investing in real estate, this probably seems intriguing. In determining if a 1031 exchange is right for you, consider the following pros and cons:
You find a property that you really want to purchase, but you know you have to move quickly to take advantage of the investment opportunity. The problem is you haven’t sold your existing property yet. A Reverse 1031 Exchange might be the answer and could save you thousands of dollars in capital gains taxes.
Like-kind 1031 exchanges are widely used by real estate investors to create and preserve wealth. In simple terms, §1031 of the US tax code allows you to defer paying capital gains taxes, and what’s called "recapture" on the profits from selling a property, provided they are “exchanged” (i.e., reinvested) into another like-kind property.
When we here at Realized use the terms “fractional 1031 properties” or “fractional 1031 investments,” we are NOT referring to timeshares, shared vacation home arrangements or other “fractional interest” properties. For Realized, “fractional 1031 investments” refers to co-ownership in one or more properties by multiple 1031 exchange investors. Two ownership structures have been approved by the IRS for Fractional 1031 Investments, the Delaware Statutory Trusts (DST) and Tenants-in-Common (TIC). Realized coined the term Replacement Property Interests (RPI)™, which has the same meaning.
