1031 exchange

Get Started

There are various ways to acquire hotel property and when selling a hotel, it’s possible to defer capital gains taxes with a 1031 exchange program. At NewGen Advisory, our team of experienced advisors work with many hotel investors reinvesting in another property through 1031 exchanges. Our partnership with JTC Americas, a qualified intermediary, adds additional value and expertise when investing in hotel property through a 1031 exchange.

1031 Exchange Process

The Basics of 1031

We’ve prepared simple documents to explain how the 1031 exchange program works and how to determine if it’s right for you.

how to get started

In order to participate in a 1031 exchange, you’ll need a property you plan to sell, a replacement property, and a Qualified Intermediary. However, you don’t need to have all these things already in order to get started. We have a history of working with JTC Americas, who can serve as your Qualified Intermediary. JTC has decades of experience with 1031 exchanges, and wrote a set of best practices that is now the industry standard.

There are two basic types of 1031 exchange:

Forward Exchange

This is where you sell your current property, then find a replacement property to purchase with the proceeds.

Reverse Exchange

First find a new property to purchase, then sell your current property within the required time frame.

The process is slightly different for each type of 1031 exchange. Your first step is to identify which method best describes your current situation, and provide your information so we can help you get started. Fill out one of the following worksheets with as much information as you’re able to currently provide. Once you’re done, just click the “Submit form” button at the bottom of the document and we’ll be in touch!

Answers to common Questions

What does "like-kind" mean?

A “like-kind” property can refer to any real property purchased for business or rental purposes, and the replacement property does not necessarily have to be exactly the same in terms of usage, housing type, or value.

What is the time frame for an exchange?

The replacement property must be found within 45 days and purchased within 180 days.

Who can participate in a 1031 Exchange?
Anyone selling an investment property who plans to purchase a replacement property can qualify for 1031. There are specific rules regarding use of the property and when it must be purchased, but as of now there are no limits based on an individual’s income (though this may change in the future).
What is a Qualified Intermediary?
he Qualified Intermediary holds the proceeds from the initial sale until the purchase of the replacement property. A QI is required for all 1031 transactions.
