In a 1031 Exchange, money from the sale of an investment property can be put towards another “like-kind” property. This means that an investor can exchange a commercial property for another, or a residential rental property for a commercial property. But, be careful! This deal is time-sensitive. You only have forty-five days to identify possible replacement properties, and one hundred and eighty days to close escrow on the actual replacement property. (The IRS is very strict about this timeline.)
