Use 1031 Exchange for California Apartment Building Sale

San Francisco, California – We have some 1031 Exchange information on various types of 1031 Exchange transactions. A Commercial Real Estate investor can have a Simultaneous Exchange. This is a 1031 Exchange of the relinquished property for the 1031 replacement property that occurs at the same time. There is also the Delayed 1031 Exchange. The Delayed 1031 Exchange is the most common type of 1031 exchange. A Delayed 1031 Exchange occurs when there is a time gap between the transfer of the Relinquished Property and the purchase of the 1031 Exchange Replacement Property. The investor must remember that the Delayed 1031 Exchange is subject to strict time limits. These 1031 Exchange time limits are set forth in the Treasury Regulations.
