Reverse Exchanges Explained
Reverse exchanges have the same ultimate outcome as forward exchanges, but the order in which things happen is different. In a typical forward exchange, the taxpayer sells their relinquished property first and then redeploys their net proceeds into a replacement property. As the name would suggest, a reverse exchange reverses the standard order of operations. So instead of selling your relinquished property first, the taxpayer acquires their replacement property first. Then, within the 180 day time period, they sell their relinquished property.
Regardless of whether you set up your 1031 as a forward exchange or a reverse exchange, the end result is the same – capital gains tax deferral.
Benefits of a Reverse Exchange
Now you may be asking yourself why anyone would choose to do a 1031 exchange in reverse. While it may seem odd on the surface, there are a some very compelling reasons to consider a reverse exchange. The most important of which is that a reverse exchange allows you to move quickly to purchase a great replacement property when the market is hot. You don’t have to wait to sell your relinquished property before acquiring your new replacement property.
