  2. Investor must acquire a replacement property with the same or higher debt amount. If a qualifying replacement property is not acquired, and no re-investment is made, then the balance of the sales proceeds are subject to capital gains tax.
  3. Investor must use a qualified 1031 Intermediary to hold the sales proceeds until transferred into the replacement property. The qualified intermediary provides the 1031 escrow services, oversight, and expertise necessary to ensure the transaction qualifies as a legal Section 1031 Exchange.

Any real estate property held for investment or real property used in a business can be exchanged in a 1031 Exchange for any other real property held for investment or real estate used in a business.
