Report: Securitized 1031 Exchange Programs to Raise Nearly $2 Billion in 2017
October 31, 2017 | The DI Wire
Securitized 1031 programs are on pace to raise $1.80 billion this year, according to the latest industry market report issued by Mountain Dell Consulting, a market research and analytics firm focused on the securitized 1031 exchange marketplace.
Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code allows investors to defer paying capital gains taxes on investment property sales by reinvesting the proceeds into a similar investment property within a specified time frame. Securitized 1031 exchange programs are structured as securities and sold through the broker-dealer community.
“Most classes of real estate are bringing record sales prices,” said Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square 1031. “That is good for sellers, but can be a double-edged sword because sellers become buyers in a Section 1031 exchange. Thus, while taxpayers are receiving record prices for their relinquished property, they are paying record prices for their replacement property. Strong, sometimes unprecedented, pricing has put a strain on replacement property cash flow, even more so for [Delaware Statutory Trust] programs that have to overcome sponsor fees and securities sales costs.”
Best Due Diligence meeting in the industry. No sales pitches, senior level decision makers, meaningful discussions and the Broker Dealer networking sessions were especially useful. Thanks to Blue Vault for raising the bar!
