10 Misconceptions Surrounding the 1031 Exchange

Today we’re joined by Julie Tumbaga, the vice president and regional manager of Old Republic Exchange Company, to help dispel some myths surrounding the 1031 exchange. A 1031 exchange is a way to defer paying capital gains tax. This applies only to investors. They sell or buy a property within a specific time, and if they have gain and they want to defer it, they have to do an exchange. Here are the top 10 misconceptions about the 1031 exchange:

  1. Like-Kind means you must exchange the same type of properties. Nope! Like-Kind is actually very broad and can be any combination of real property.
  2. Your attorney can handle it for you. Your attorney hopefully can handle a lot of things, but they actually cannot handle this for you if they have been your attorney for the last two years.
  3. You must literally swap your property with another investor. Wrong - you only have to be buying and selling investment properties. It doesn’t matter who you buy the property from, only how you use it.
  4. 1031 exchanges are too complicated. They’re actually not so bad. The paperwork is pretty standard. Just sign when you buy and sign when you sell.
  5. The sale and the purchase must take place simultaneously. There are, on the contrary, different timeframes when it comes to the exchange. You have 45 days to identify the property and 180 days to close on it.
  6. You only need to file a form with the IRS with your tax return and roll over the proceeds into a new investment. While you do need to report your 1031 exchange with the IRS, you also have to have all the 1031 exchange paperwork signed before the closing and purchase.
  7. 1031 exchanges are only for real estate. There are other types of exchanges. For example, a personal property exchange.
  8. All of the funds from the sale must be reinvested. When the client sells the relinquished property, the net proceeds come to the exchange company, and then they must use all of those funds as their down payment for the new property. They can then use cash or get a mortgage to make up the difference. If you don’t use the money, whatever is remaining will be exposed to taxes.
  9. 1031 exchanges are only for “big” investors. Any level of investor can do an exchange as long as they’re selling or buying an investment property.
  10. You must hold the property longer than a year before exchanging it. There is no rule or law on how long you have to hold an investment property.

1031 exchanges only apply to investors.

Team Lally’s Finest Moments

Call us at (808) 426-7211 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation

If you think we are able to make our videos on this blog with just one take, you are far from the truth. Although the finished product is polished, sometimes it takes us a while to get there.

We’re silly when we want to be, but
 serious when the time comes.

Today we’ve got a fun video to share with you. It’s the Team Lally blooper reel, and we know you’ll enjoy it. Although we take our time to give you the best information possible, sometimes we get sidetracked. We make mistakes because we’re human, but we wanted to share those mistakes because they are just too funny to keep to ourselves.

There are some great moments here, from Attilio’s impressions to Duke’s long stares into the camera. We’re silly when we want to be, but serious when the time comes. We hope you enjoy the video, and if you have any questions for us, you can always give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!

Team Lally with Chris Hogan

A former national champion and all-American football player, Chris Hogan has never backed down from a challenge. But how did he find his way off the gridiron and onto the path of helping others achieve financial peace?

Once his playing days were over, Hogan served as the vice president of a well-respected mortgage company helping clients manage their money and their businesses. In the process, he realized that too many marriages and families were being adversely impacted by financial issues because they could not communicate openly and honestly about money. Hogan realized that the way people were counseled about money had to change. That’s when he met Dave Ramsey.

Today, Hogan helps spread the message of hope and financial peace to audiences across the country. Chris helps people plan for their future and reach their retirement goals through his Retire Inspired Live Events and R:IQ Assessment tool. Hogan works with high profile clients, including business leaders, professional athletes and entertainers, to help them develop financial strategies to generate revenue, protect their wealth, and secure their futures.


They talked about his Retire Inspired book and about his free R:IQ Tool for people to use. He also shared eye-opening stories about people who have not taken the time to plan their retirement. He also talked about Why it is important for people to start planning for retirement now?
He also answered some questions from Adrienne and Attilio about:
Foreword from Dave Ramsey in his book
How he met Dave Ramsey?
Where people can get his book?
He also gave some advice about helping people build the habit of BUDGETING
His perspective as a Financial Planner regarding DEBT
What are common characteristics all high performers share?
What are DISC profiles and how do they help you lead?
Tips about Public speaking
Team Lally is also giving out FREE Retire Inspired book!
