Investment Exchanges
When you buy an investment property, there are two important financial goals to consider. You will want a property capable of producing rental income, and when you sell, you hope that it will have appreciated enough that you will earn a good profit on your investment. If your property has enjoyed a healthy appreciation, you may need to do some careful planning to avoid paying out most of your profits in the form of capital gains taxes.

When selling your primary residence, you may be able to defer your capital gains taxes when you buy your next home. This does not apply, however, to investment property--if you sell one property then purchase another, the taxes will be due for the year the sale occurred. On the other hand, if you arrange to trade one property for another, you may be able to defer the capital gains tax. It is not as complicated as it sounds, and many Realtors and attorneys specialize in helping their clients put these kind of transactions together. You don't have to trade buildings with the people buying your property. The property you trade may belong to a third party, and your buyers need only cooperate with the closing attorney to make the transaction work.
