Most 1031 exchanges are set up as straight property-to-property exchanges. But are there other alternatives to this typical set up?
The short answer is yes. In a 1031 exchange, you can purchase any real property in the USA that will be held for either productive use in a trade or business or for investment. That includes traditional brick and mortar properties (broad spectrum of land and buildings and other real property interests) as well as securitized real estate investments such as Tenant-In-Common (TIC) deals, Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) and even some oil and gas investments (a working interest is considered a real property interest whereas a royalty interest is not).
TIC & DST Investments
Some TIC and DST investments may convert to Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) after a period of time, providing additional diversity, divisibility and liquidity.
It’s always a good idea to consult with a qualified intermediary about the details of your 1031 exchange before you begin the process.
