As confusing as it may seem, acquiring a successful exchange & reverse exchange transaction in San Francisco can be easier if you have the resources of an exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company at your disposal. Follow the guidelines listed below in order to zero in on the best San Francisco exchange & reverse exchange service company for you.

A reverse exchange is a type of property exchange. The replacement property is purchased first, and then the current property is traded away. The purpose of a reverse exchange is to help the buyer who finds a new property that they would like to purchase before they are able to trade in a current property.

A 1031 exchange is also known as a tax deferred exchange. This is a simple strategy of selling one qualified property and then proceeding with the purchase of another qualified property within a specific time frame. A 1031 exchange is unique in that it is treated as an exchange rather than just a simple sale. It allows the taxpayer to defer capital gain taxes.

Reasons You Should Consider a Diamond Certified 1031 Exchange Service in San Francisco
If you are expecting to purchase a similar piece of property before the sale of an existing investment property, you might want to consider using the services of an exchange & reverse exchange real estate company. Otherwise, you will have to pay a capital gain tax which, currently, is set at 15%. It may go up to 20% in future years.

One of the major reasons for a 1031 exchange service is that the IRS depreciates capital real estate investments at a 3% rate per year as long as you hold the investment until it is fully depreciated. Then when you sell the investment asset, the IRS will tax you on the depreciated portion as an income tax. For example, if you have a piece of investment property that you own for 15 years, the IRS depreciates it 45% (15 years x 3%=45%). You are then required to pay taxes on that 45% depreciation.

There are two major rules to follow in regards to a 1031 exchange service. They are the following:

  • The total purchase cost of the replacement property must be equal to or greater than the cost of the relinquished real estate property.
  • All the equity received from the sale of the relinquished real estate property must be used to purchase the replacement property.

If either of these rules is violated, that will be a determining factor in the tax liability accrued to the person requesting the exchange. Regardless, if the cost of the replacement property is less, a tax responsibility will be incurred. However, partial exchanges do qualify for a partial tax-deferral program. But the amount of the difference will be taxed as a "non-like-kind" real estate property.

Frequent 1031 Exchange & Reverse Exchange Misconceptions

All types of 1031 exchanges must close at the same time
This is no longer true. In fact, many exchanges that are executed today are delayed exchanges.

"Like-kind" of property refers to purchasing the same type of property that was sold.
Though many people interpret "like-kind" to mean hotels must be exchanged for hotels, or apartments must be exchanged for apartments, this is not entirely true. The exact definition is more reflective of intent than its use. "Like-kind" actually refers to two types of property: property held for investment and property held for use in a business or trade.

All 1031 exchanges must involve trading with other property owners
Though there used to be a requirement by the IRS for simultaneous swapping of deeds plus simultaneous closing transactions among all parties, this is no longer true today.

Exchange & reverse exchanges are limited to a single exchange and a single replacement property
This is a myth. There are actually no restrictions in the IRS code regarding the amount and number of real estate properties that can be involved in an exchange.

Finding a Reliable San Francisco Real Estate Exchange & Reverse Exchange Company
Making a final decision regarding your choice of an exchange & reverse exchange real estate company is an important one.

Before you sit down and interview prospective exchange & reverse exchange real estate companies, gather all of your financial information. This way you can present all of your information to each exchange & reverse exchange real estate company.

This will enable you to accurately compare in order to more effectively make the right choice for you.

  • Make an Informed Preliminary Decision Among Exchange & Reverse Exchange Real Estate Service Companies

  • The Final Decision on an Exchange & Reverse Exchange Real Estate Service Company

It's advantageous to choose a Diamond Certified exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company because all certified companies have passed an in-depth ratings process that most other companies can't pass.

If you want quality from a exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area, you can have confidence choosing a Diamond Certified company. Diamond Certified reports are available online for all certified companies. And you'll never be fooled by fake reviews. That's because all research is performed in live telephone interviews of actual customers.

If you can't find a Diamond Certified exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company within close proximity, you'll have to do some research on your own. If you do, it's wise to call some references provided by your exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company. Keep in mind, though, that references provided to you by the exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process. That's because references given to customers from companies are cherry-picked instead of randomly selected from all their customers. So the contractors will likely give you a few customers to call that they know are satisfied.

If you do phone references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the company's 10 most recent customers. This will help avoid them giving you the names of only customers they know were satisfied.

  • If you need a exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company in the future, will you consider hiring this company?
  • Would you recommend this exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company to your family and friends?
  • Did you feel the exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company was working with your best interest in mind?
  • Was this exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company respectful of your time?
  • Was the exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company helpful in guiding you through the process?
  • When the process was complete, were you satisfied with the exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company?

If you are purchasing real estate such as business real estate properties, your real estate mortgage broker may ask you to sign a "buyer's agent agreement." If you choose to switch to a different real estate broker at the moment of signing a contract for real estate property for the purpose of saving money, etc., this contract ensures that the real estate broker will be compensated for their work. Before signing a buyer's agent agreement, you may want to carefully consider the following issues:

  • Compensation. Make sure that the total compensation is covered in the buyer's agreement. Any commission paid by the seller to the purchaser's broker will reduce any commission owed by the buyer. Also, avoid paying a retainer fee. Make sure you check to see how to cancel the contract if you are dissatisfied with the real estate broker's performance.
  • Exchange 1031 Experience. Be sure that the real estate broker of choice is experienced in real estate exchange and reverse exchange services.
  • Term. Set a reasonable time period for working with the real estate broker in San Francisco. You can always renew later if needed. Remember: if you purchase a property such as commercial real estate a few months after the contract has expired, the real estate broker is still entitled to a commission.
  • Geographic area. Be sure that the real estate broker is experienced in the geographic area in which you are purchasing property. If it is possible that you will venture beyond the comfort zone of the real estate broker, make a provision in the contract to be referred to another broker by your current real estate broker. The current real estate broker can collect a referral fee or simply void the contract.

Sign the Listing Contract Before Finalizing the Exchange & Reverse Exchange Service
A listing contract is the contract between a real estate broker and a seller of real estate property that gives the broker the right to offer the property for sale. The listing contract will be signed before completing the exchange & reverse exchange service. It must include the following:

  • The terms and conditions under which the brokerage fee will be paid by the seller
  • Authorizes the broker to cooperate with other brokers as sub-brokers and also details the compensation that will be offered to those brokers in the event they secure a buyer.
  • A beginning date and a termination date
  • The list price which the property will be offered for sale
  • The amount of compensation offered to the real estate broker. This can be in the form of a percentage of the sales price or a flat fee.
  • Authorizes the real estate broker to disclose or not to disclose the existence of offers formerly received.

Q: What is a 1031 exchange?
A: Section 1031 of the IRS tax code allows you to defer taxes on capital gains from the sale of investment properties if all the proceeds are quickly invested in replacement properties. Basically, you're deferring the taxes until you sell the new property.

Q: What types of real estate qualify for 1031 exchanges? Can I do a 1031 exchange on my vacation home or rental property?
A:Raw land, or vacant land, that's held for investment purposes qualifies for a 1031 exchange. Properties that you're renting out qualify, but a primary residence or vacation home does not.

Q: When do I have to decide about making an exchange?
A: You have to decide to engage in an exchange before you sell the relinquished property. If you sell the property before choosing to do an exchange, you can't defer the capital gains by investing in the new property. The transaction has been completed and you've acquired the tax liability.

Q: When is the 1031 exchange completed?
A: It is complete when you close on the replacement property.

Q: Do I need to have a mortgage on the replacement property?
A: After you pay off the mortgage, all of the net proceeds from the sale have to go into the replacement property. Basically that means that the new property must be of equal or greater value than the relinquished property. If you have the money to pay the difference, you don't need to have a mortgage on the replacement property.

Q: Can the proceeds from the sale of a relinquished property be held in escrow?
A: Yes. An exchange & reverse exchange real estate service company warehouse the proceeds from the sale in client accounts and apply them to the purchase of a replacement property.

Q: Is there a limit to how long the proceeds can remain in escrow?
A: The answer is yes. There are two deadlines. One is at 45 days; another is at 180 days. You have 45 calendar days to identify one or more replacement properties. The 45 days start from the day of the sale. You have to close on one of the identified properties within 180 calendar days. You incur the capital gains tax liability from the sale if you miss either of these two deadlines. The deadlines are set in stone and can only be waived if a natural disaster affects the property. Personal emergencies do not count.
