WHAT IS A DELAWARE STATUTORY TRUST?
A Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) is a legal entity formed under Delaware trust law that may be structured to qualify as eligible “like-kind” replacement property for the purposes of 1031 Exchanges.
DSTs permit eligible investors to become proportional owners of professionally managed, institutional-quality real estate projects alongside other accredited investors. As such, DSTs permit Exchangers the potential of achieving the tax benefits of 1031s when exchanged into a passively owned, turnkey investment property.
WHAT IS A 1031 EXCHANGE?
A 1031 Like-Kind Exchange allows an investor or business owner to sell an investment property and replace it with another property (passive or active ownership) of equal or greater value within a time frame of 180 days from the date of close using a qualified intermediary. If all the criteria are met the investor can defer taxes on up to 100% of capital gains created from the sale of the original property. Some form of 1031 Like-Kind exchanges has been around since 1921.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
- DSTs can help relinquish the burden of managing properties without giving up the benefits of real estate investing. DSTs have professional management, so investors don’t have to deal with tenants and associated upkeep.
- As a 1031 exchange, landlords can sell their investment properties, defer all income tax on the sale of the properties and avoid leaving a tax burden to their heirs. If structured properly, in addition to tax deferral treatment, this investment product can provide long-term income and asset preservation.
- With DSTs, you can collect monthly income on-time with no worries about maintenance, repairs, or vacancies with a portion of this income being received potentially tax-free. DSTs also allow you the ability to participate in increasing income based on any applicable rent increases.
- You will be able to capture your share of any appreciation of the DST investment properties over time.
- DSTs offer you the opportunity to diversify your portfolio by giving you the ability to choose investments with various geographic locations, property types and debt leverage.
STEPS TOWARD COMPLETING AN EXCHANGE
The path toward successful 1031 exchanges includes incorporating and understanding several key steps:
- Consult early on with 1031-familiar real estate professionals to help with your sale and finding replacement property/properties.
- Engage an experienced Qualified Intermediary (we can make a referral) to handle the transaction.
- Confirm the Qualified Intermediary can securely protect your exchange proceeds during the period between your exchange sale and replacement property purchase.
- Align with professionals specializing in the DST marketplace who have ready access to a selection of pre-screened DSTs vetted by a thorough due-diligence process.
- Expect strong coordination and frequent updates from your 1031 exchange team.
- Start searching for Replacement Property as early as your schedule allows to avoid rushes and deadline crunches
