A 1031 exchange is an incredibly powerful tool that allows an individual to save on taxes after the sale of a piece of real estate. This tax deferral program permits the investor to sell a real estate property and then reinvest the funds in a property of equal or greater value. Doing so allows the investor to keep more money in their pocket, and defer all capital gains taxes.

 

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, Natali and I are sharing the six rules you must follow when conducting a 1031 exchange. We’ll discuss best practices for dealing with the IRS, and what you must do to successfully complete a 1031 exchange and defer taxes. We’ll also share more details about our favorite 1031 experts, and discuss resources you can use to learn more!
