UPREITs as 1031 Exchange Replacement Property Solutions
REITs – also known as Real Estate Investment Trusts – are considered securities and can be publicly traded like any other publicly traded stock, and thus are very similar to a mutual fund that invests in real estate and real estate related assets. REITs tend to provide solid returns on their initial investment and provide an Investor with a very diversified real estate portfolio because they tend to acquire numerous properties.
An Investor cannot 1031 Exchange into a REIT because it is not considered an interest in real estate; instead, it is considered personal property and not like-kind to the property that was sold.
When Investors 1031 Exchange into an upREIT here are risks inherent in doing so; for example, the sale of interest in an upREIT will be taxable because the Investor has exchanged into a security and therefore no longer owns real estate. The upREIT also has control over the sale or disposition of the asset they 1031 Exchanged into, and are able to trigger the Investor’s deferred capital gain and depreciation recapture by sale of the asset. However, if the upREIT does not sell the property, capital gain and depreciation recapture taxes are indefinitely deferred.
The upREIT makes for investment diversification, increased cash flow, and tax-deferred planning strategies, but also contains some significant risks as well.
