Key Benefits of DST 1031 Exchanges

No Management Responsibilities

The DST is the single owner and agile decision maker on behalf of investors.

Estate Planning

All 1031 exchange investments receive a step-up in cost basis so your heirs will not inherit capital gain liabilities, and provides them with professional real estate management versus the burden of hands-on management.

Access to institutional-quality property

Most real estate investors can’t afford to own multi-million dollar properties. DSTs allow investors to acquire partial ownership in properties that otherwise would be out-of-reach.

Insurance Policy

If for some reason the investor can’t acquire the original property they identified, a secondary DST option allows them to meet the exchange deadlines and defer the capital gains tax.

Limited Personal Liability

Loans are nonrecourse to the investors. The DST is the sole borrower.

Eliminate Boot

Any remaining profit on the sale of your relinquished property is considered “boot”. This remaining money becomes taxable unless eliminate it. The excess cash (boot) can be invested in a DST to avoid incurring tax.

Lower Minimum Investments

DSTs can accommodate much lower minimum investments, whereas 1031 exchange minimums often are $100,000.


Investors can divide their investment among multiple DSTs, which may provide for a more diversified real estate portfolio across geography and property types.

Swap until you drop

The DST structure allows investor to continue to to exchange real properties over and over again until the investor’s death.
