Find the gain, taxesowed, and the net equity. SP 700,000– SE 56,000= Net SP 644,000– AB 244,000= Gain 400,000 3
    • Taxes owed: Gain 400,000x Tax Rate 15% Taxes 60,000 4
    • Net equity or cash out Net SP 644,000– Loans 200,000 Equity 444,000– Taxes 60,000 Net Cash out 384,000 5
    • G = SP - SE – ABIn disposition of investment property there arethree ways to handle the gain: 1. Realize the gain. 2. Recognize the gain. 3. Defer the gain. 6
    • TWO PARTY EXCHANGESMost people think of a two-party exchange. This iswhere A and B exchange properties, and A getsB’s property and B gets A’s property AB BAIn real life this seldom (or never) happens. 7
    • THREE PARTY EXCHANGESIn a three-party exchange, we have a person whowants to exchange (E), a seller (S), and a buyer(B). There are two ways to complete thisexchange.1. ES SE BE2. S S BE ES 8
    • S E BAnybody can be the center (hub) of the exchange,except the exchanger.When a client who wants a 1031 tax–deferredexchange, in the listing, a statement shouldinclude that the client wants to make a 1031 tax–deferred exchange and should be stated in themultiple listing service (MLS). 9
    • BUY–UP RULEIf the exchanger has traded up in value and up inequity, then the exchange is totally tax deferred.Trade-up means the new property must be equal toor greater in value than the old property. If theexchanger withdraws any cash, the cashwithdrawn will be taxable.Any trade down is a taxable event. 10
    • Mr. Evans wants an exchange and Mr. Samsonwants to sell his property. Mr. Evans’ FMV is$500,000 with loans of $300,000. Mr. Samson’sFMV is $700,000 and loans of $400,000. E S Trade Down FMV 500,000 700,000 0– L 300,000 400,000= E 200,000 300,000 0 11
    • Mr. Evans went up in value and equity, thus E hasa tax differed exchange. 12
    • Mr. Evans wants to make an exchange and Mr.Samson wants to sell his property. Mr. Evans’FMV is $500,000 with loans of $300,000. Mr.Samson’s FMV is $700,000 and loans of $400,000. E S Trade Down FMV 500,000 700,000 0– L 300,000 200,000= E 200,000 200,000 0 13
    • Mr. Evans went down in value of $100,000 andequity remained the same, therefore E has ataxable event. 14
    • Mr. Evans wants to make an exchange and Mr.Samson wants to sell his property. Mr. Evans’FMV is $500,000 with loans of $300,000. Mr.Samson’s FMV is $400,000 and loans of $400,000. E S Trade Down FMV 500,000 400,000 100,000– L 300,000 200,000= E 200,000 200,000 0 15
