More on 1031 Exchanges

A 1031 exchange, also known as a like-kind exchange, tax free exchange or Starker exchange is a way to defer payment of taxes on the sale of real estate. The seller cannot sell the property outright. To have a valid exchange, the property being sold must be exchanged for other property through a specific process.

That is where we come in. The exchange rules require using a Qualified Intermediary, such as Gain 1031 Exchange Company, to facilitate the exchange and hold the proceeds funds from the sale in an escrow account. If the seller/exchanger touches those proceeds funds, they become taxable.


We service the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Dakota property sellers. Also conducting exchanges for customers completing a 1031 exchange in Illinois and Florida
