Current Trends in Transaction Timing

Current Trends

Something we are seeing right now is that timing of transactions is more important than ever. If you put a property on the market and someone wants to close, ask for the time that you need! It’s your sale.. and your sale date will start the clock.

When working towards acquisition of replacement properties, there is no need to wait for the relinquished property’s closing. 1031 prohibits a taxpayer’s simultaneous ownership of the relinquished and replacement property, but you are free to negotiate purchases including the deposit of earnest money at any time. If you would like to be reimbursed the earnest money you have deposited, we can reimburse those funds at the closing of the replacement property.

Since we are on the topic of earnest money, consider the scenario where a seller personally receives earnest money. The 1031 exchange client has two options:

  1. Keep the earnest money received, it will be taxable.
  2. Deposit earnest money back in escrow at closing to be included with all sales proceeds, defer all gain.

After 100 years, section 1031 is pretty familiar to people, yet fine points as these above often become points of concern. When you have questions, we are the guys with the answers!
