How a “Deferred Sales Trust” can help sell a property or business, defer the capital gains tax, and (unlike a 1031 exchange) let you roll the money into investments other than real estate (great for tired landlords, eg., or investors who want to do a deal with a tired landlord). This is worth some very serious study. Is the period in which you must roll over the cash proceeds the same 45 days you have with a 1031 exchange (where you’d be wise nail down a replacement property with an option first)?
Whether a Deferred Sales Trust is used or not, you can always sell with an installment sale to help reduce capital gains taxes. When you’re buying an investor, make sure they know the many benefits of selling with an installment sale ( seller financing) to reduce their taxes.
