Getting Your 1031 Exchange Off the Ground
Technically, a 1031 exchange begins with the sale of your relinquished property (or the sale of your replacement property in a reverse exchange). However, it’s not a good idea to jump into the 1031 exchange waters head first. You want to do a little bit of prep work first.
The first thing you should do is consult with a qualified intermediary. A 1031 intermediary is someone who understands section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code back to front. They will be able to advise you on the specifics of your exchange. It’s important to involve an intermediary before you sell your relinquished property. Having a little extra time will allow you to prepare all of the necessary 1031 exchange documents, and do a little bit of scouting for replacement property. The more prep time you can give yourself and your intermediary, the less chance that you’ll be scrambling at the last minute
