Not many people or professionals are aware of the passive solution to the 1031 Exchange:
The Delaware Statutory Trust (DST).
Basically to qualify you need $1M Net Worth excluding primary residence, $200K Single Income and $300K with spouse. The property sold qualifies to satisfy Net Worth.
This is great for someone who wants to reduce their real estate portfolio and avoid taxes or cannot find an appropriate 1031 replacement property. You will get a check every month. You or your clients may not want to deal with the property management aspect of their real estate anymore.
Also, if there are disputes, there are shares which can be split up amongst members of a family and they can do whatever they want with their shares. I have a situation like that now.
A DST can offer many other benefits;
1. Access to institutional quality real estate.
2. Professional asset and property management.
3. Passive ownership
4. Non-recourse institutional financing
5. Lower minimum investments
6. Portfolio diversification
7. The ability to close quickly.
