What is a 1031 Exchange?
An exchange provides an alternative to the usual buying and selling of commercial real estate. The 1031 exchange (IRS Section 1031) allows the holders of a business or investment property to exchange one property for another that is “like kind” and similar in value, and delay paying capital gains/taxes that would normally incur, so long as the rules are followed.
