— A Qualified Intermediary Serving Washington & Beyond —
A 1031 tax-deferred exchange allows investment property owners to fully defer paying capital gains taxes by reinvesting sales proceeds—within a specific time frame—into properties of equal or greater value.
A successful 1031 tax exchange requires two key elements: the exchangor (the property owner) and the qualified intermediary (a professional facilitator). A transaction typically involves the following steps:
The property exchangor assigns the sale contract to a qualified intermediary.
The buyer receives the existing property directly from the exchangor.
The exchangor's funds are held by the qualified intermediary.
The exchangor identifies a potential replacement property within a period of 45 days.
The exchangor assigns the purchase contract to the qualified intermediary.
The qualified intermediary funds are used to purchase the new property within 180 days of the relinquished property's closing.
The exchangor acquires the new property directly from the seller.
