What Property Can Be Exchanged?
Only real estate qualifies for 1031 exchange treatment. Items of personal property cannot be exchanged. Furthermore, all property needs to be held for investment or use in your trade or business. That means you can’t exchange your house that you use as a primary residence.

How Do I Defer 100% of My Capital Gains Taxes?
