1031 Exchange Strategy with Apartment Buildings

Los Angeles, California – We have many commercial real estate investors seeking apartment building complexes, triple net lease properties and retail shopping centers for their 1031 Exchange replacement property. A triple net lease does require that the tenant pays some or all of the property expenses. The tenant would also pay fixed rent as well as expenses. These expenses can include property taxes, insurance, maintenance, repairs, utilities and other items agreed upon when the lease is signed. So an 1031 Exchange investor can go from an apartment building to a NNN Lease Property.

The definition of “like-kind” has been misunderstood to mean “The requirement of the acquisition of property to be utilized in the same form as the exchange property”. Some investors think it must be a hotel for a hotels, apartments are for apartments, and so on. When preparing for a 1031 Exchange remember that commercial properties are of like-kind, if they are of the same nature or character, even if they differ in grade or quality. This 1031 exchange strategy allows apartment building owners to get an asset that lending institutions trust more with a credit rating (Net lease Tenants like Walgreen’s).
