A 1031 exchange is a smart tax tool that allows real estate investors to reinvest the sale of one investment property into another without paying capital gains taxes. While it is very intelligent to use a 1031 exchange, there are some pitfalls, many around timelines. Sellers have 45 days from the sale of the first property to identify three more and then 180 days to close on one of those or the entire 1031 exchange opportunity is lost. During this time an escrow company, such as Traditional Abstract, holds onto the funds from the first sale as well as help with any of closing or settlement transactions.
