Exchange Into a REIT Snippet


Exchange into a REIT

One of the most common questions I’m getting these days is, “Can I exchange my rental property into a REIT”. And if you’ve done any research on this topic there’s a good chance you’re confused at this point. While some people will rightfully tell you that you cannot exchange rental property into a REIT, there are also a lot of people out there promoting that very idea. So what is happening here? As bizarre as this might sound both positions are correct well you cannot 1031 exchange real estate directly into a REIT, there is a way to accomplish this goal through a two-step process

The process begins by selling rental property and doing a 1031 exchange into a Delaware statutory trust  (DST) then after some time has passed that DST is acquired by a REIT through a tax deferred 721 exchange. When that happens the investor’s interest in the DST converts to operating partnership units of the REIT. So in this way an investor can exchange their current rental property and ultimately end up owning shares of a REIT.

There are important qualification restrictions, time periods, and other important factors to consider before beginning the process of exchanging into a REIT. If you’d like to learn more about this topic, register for our webinar on May 29th using the link in the e-mail you just received.
