California 1031 Exchanges

A 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange allows you to preserve the value of your property investment and can be a powerful tool if administered correctly.

A tax-deferred exchange under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code allows the real estate investor to sell an investment property and acquire another ‘like-kind’ property while deferring federal capital gains taxes until later. This lets you reinvest sale proceeds that would otherwise be paid to the government as capital gains taxes.
