Have an investment home that you want to sell but need to reinvest that profit into a new home?
A 1031 Tax Exchange is the program you want.
A 1031 Exchange, also referred to as a Like Kind Exchange or Starker Tax Deferred Exchange is a Section in the Internal Revenue Code that states if an asset, typically real estate, is sold, the profits of that sale can be reinvested in an asset of a similar kind without a capital gain or loss penalty.
Because of all the investing happening now with cash buyers and rental properties, 1031 exchanges are becoming more and more popular. This allows a seller to list and sell their property first and then buy a replacement property at a later date without profit penalties.

Many first time investors don't realize this is an option. This benefit was designed specifically for real estate investors to reinvest the gains they make on similar properties which they exchange for their old ones. While it may seem like a simple tax deferral procedure, knowing all the details before starting the process is vital to the successful completion of one.
Not just anyone can handle this type of transaction. The capital made on the 1031 exchanges should be dealt with through a qualified intermediary which is why Ranch - n - Home is here. This is due for the simple fact that you cannot be accused of keeping the money for your own financial gain. The funds from the sale of one property must be deposited into an account which should stay untouched until the end of the tax year. To benefit from the tax exchange the seller must identify the next purchased property within 45 days of the previous home sale. After this the purchase should be completed within 180 days. Any property purchased later than that and you will not be entitled to the property exchange.
