Many of our transactions this year have involved a buyer in an exchange. Exchanges are common in real estate and take place when the buyor or investor in question sells one property at the same time they inherit another.


I. Identify which type of Exchange best fits your property needs

1. Simultaneous Exchange: Property is sold and the replacement property is acquired during the same day, as the properties close concurrently. This is the rarest form of exchanges and investors are urged to use an Exchange Accommodator when conducting this type of exchange.


2. Delayed Exchange: This type of exchange allows investors to sell a property and then has 180 days to acquire a replacement property


3. Reverse Exchange: In a reverse exchange the investor is allowed to acquire a replacement property prior to the sale of their other property. This can get complicated


4. Construction Exchange: Investors use the exchange proceeds to build on land improve the existing property. All exchange funds however have to be spent within the 180 day period.




II. Once you have determined the type of exchange you would like follow the following guidelines:


A. Properties must be held for use in trade/business and must be like-kind


B. Timeline states that the exchanger has a maximum of 180 days to complete an exchange – as directed by the IRS. Timeline begins upon the date of the close of escrow


C.Identify your replacement property as:

1. The 3 Property Rule – You can ID any three properties, of any price as long as they are in the United States

2. The 200 % Rule – The 200% rule can be applied if you are choosing to excecise an option to exchange four or more properties. The rule however is that the combined value of the properties you identify cannot exceed 200% of the property that was sold.


D. Tex Defferal: In order to defer 100% of the capital gains tax liability, the following requirement must be met:

1. All the cash that was generated from the sale of the property mut be reinvested into the newly acquired property

2. The value of the new property must be equal or greater than the property sold
