The real estate market remains hot, which is very advantageous to sellers. To help avoid the stress sometimes associated with identifying replacement property within the 45-Day Identification Period, Exchangers are encouraged to look for replacement property once their relinquished property is under contract with a seller. No doubt, the 45 days go by quickly, but using the time between going under contract and the actual closing typically gives you 45-60 days before the timeclock starts clicking. This timeframe is before your 45-Day Identification Period ever starts, which gives you that extra time to navigate the identifications rules.Read More
One of the most important requirements of a successful 1031 exchange is the proper identification of replacement property within 45 days of when the relinquished property is transferred to a buyer. While this requirement seems simple to satisfy, for many, it creates a great deal of stress for a variety of reasons. Following are the most common issues that pop up and tips on how to avoid unnecessary worry.
It is true that 45 days is a very short period of time - especially when you have to determine the property or properties you want to identify for your 1031 exchange. If you closed on your relinquished property today, your 45th day will be August 24th and there is no doubt those 6.5 weeks will fly! However, wise investors take advantage of the time they have between the date the Agreement of Sale with the buyer was signed and the actual closing date. This period of time is usually between 30 – 90 days and will “extend” your identification period on the front end without the pressure of the clock ticking.
