1031 Tax Exchanges Part 11

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Miami Beach

Accommodators it is Real Estate Exchange Services, Inc.'s responsibility to counsel with the exchanger, structure the exchange, prepare the documentation, coordinate the closing (for the exchange portion of the transaction) and maintain preparation for IRS audit.

This is all I have on 1031 Tax Exchanges. If you need help you can e-mail me at lucastaylor@century21beggins.com.

Lucas -- in California the term accomodator has been replaced by Qualified Intermediary to properly assist those participating in a 1031 exchange.

Hi Lucas,  We use the term Intermediary here in NM as well.  Same thing only different I suppose.  Everybody has their role in a 1031 Exchange.

We were quite successful with 1031 exchanges before the crash but now, NOTHING.  Wonder why?

Lucas,  echoing Micheal's comment. It is interesting how we have to keep up with the changes on so many different levels, not just 1031 exchanges on a local and regional level...also about ordinances, regulation changes the list goes on and on...

I have not had this in a long time. Good idea for a series. You can take my Evernote idea and add photos and video pronto to these posts even on an iPad! It takes seconds with a cheat sheet.

Good Evening Lucas:

Interesting Series. I will definitely checkout the rest of the series. I am not licensed in FL , so I would not have picked up on the "Accommmodator' A qualified Intermediary is what's  used in NM

Lucas, I am wondering if the 1031 tax exchanges have slowed down this year with the the capital gains rate increasing on New Years Day and beyond.  Are people taking their money and running?
