There are many benefits offered by a 1031 exchange of real estate. Here we are going to offer three reasons why you should consider conducting a 1031 exchange in North Dakota.
Save Money in Capital Gains Taxes
Perhaps the greatest benefit of a 1031 exchange is that it is a vehicle through which you can defer your capital gains taxes when selling real estate. In a typical real estate sale, you are responsible for paying capital gains taxes on the sale of your property. This can be a substantial sum. A 1031 exchange, when done correctly, allows you to defer 100% of these capital gains taxes as long as you reinvest your net proceeds into a replacement property thus keeping your money working for you over time instead of paying it out in taxes.
Diversify Your Portfolio
1031 exchanges also offer a great opportunity to diversify your portfolio. With a 1031 exchange, you can exchange out of and into any segments of the real estate market provided you abide by the 1031 exchange rules and regulations.
Exchange Out of Management-Intensive Property
You can also utilize a 1031 exchange to get out of a management-intensive property such as an apartment building. Many taxpayers who are looking to retire and do not want to do the work required of management-intensive properties might find this opportunity attractive.
