Your Trusted 1031 Escrow Service Provider

Introducing Vista 1031 exchange service.

What is a 1031 Exchange?

1031 exchange is one of the most popular tax strategies available when buying and selling real estate. It encourages reinvestment in business assets.

Basically, a taxpayer sells a property used for business or investment to exchange for another property also for use in business or investment. When transacting an exchange, the taxpayer never receives nor controls the funds from the sale of their property. The funds are directly used to purchase the replacement property. Because the taxpayer never actually gains the proceeds from the sale, they may

defer the tax they would pay if they simply sold a property and kept the money.

Section 1031 of the tax code:
“allows owners of qualified real estate to sell the property without paying taxes on the gain from the sale, as long as the sale proceeds or exchange value is used to acquire like-kind replacement property for investment or business uses.”

What kind of property is eligible?

Nearly all real property used for business or investment is considered to be “like-kind” to all other real property.

  • Single or Multi-family Rentals
  • Office Buildings
  • Apartment Buildings
  • Shopping Centers
  • Farm & Ranch Land
  • Vacant Land Held for Investment
  • Billboard Sites
  • Hotels & Motels
  • Cell Tower Sites
  • Warehouses

Tips for a successful exchange:

  • If you want to begin a forward exchange, start looking for your replacement property as early as possible.
  • You can stretch out this extra period by delaying the close date on your relinquished property, preventing your 45-day countdown from starting.
  • If you have already identified a property you would like to purchase but have not been able to sell your current property, consider a reverse exchange. That way, you will ensure your purchase and have 180 days to sell the old property.
  • To avoid unwanted delays that may cut your 1031 exchange timeline short, ensure your financing is in order before entering into an exchange agreement.

We are proud to offer intermediary services.
