Let’s walk through the step by step process for carrying out a 1031 exchange. Be aware that the following is just a general outline, so specific deals will likely vary slightly from this process.

 

The 10-Step Process to Perform a 1031 Exchange

1. Decide to sell and do a 1031 exchange.
Not every purchase is worth doing a 1031 exchange. After all, with all the requirements, costs, and countdown timers, simply paying the tax and moving on may be advantageous. That is definitely a discussion for you to have with your accountant.

2. List your property for sale.
You then list your property for sale, as you ordinarily would. Your agent will likely include language in the listing paperwork regarding your desire to do a 1031 exchange and the buyer’s

I had a VA client who was told by their lender that they did not have to pay closing costs. One of the things I do for all my clients is to explain the buying process and with a VA loan, I explain they may qualify for no money down but there are still closing costs. I asked my client to check with their lender what they would be and they were still left with the impression there were no closing costs. We ended up finding a home rather quickly and now my client they had 10,000 in closing costs that were due. One of the things I pride myself on is my negotiation skills. In this situation to help them attain their toll brothers dream home, I was able to negotiate with the seller to pay half their closing costs and we would add 5k to the offer we had made.

These disparate realities can be difficult to merge

One of my first Las Vegas Real Estate clients was a wonderful couple looking for their future retirement home. They were getting calls left and right from agents since they visited so many sites online. I assured them that I had no intentions of bombarding them with calls or emails. However, what I did let them know that I was there to find them a home, and if that was their goal I would work honestly and diligently with “THEIR” timeline. I let them know I was licensed in CA, as well as NV; which in turn was truly beneficial to them coming from there. I educated them on both markets and what their buying power truly was. They appreciated that I actually listened to every detail, and welcomed any feedback “negative or positive.” They decided to move
