For individuals not interested in the day-to-day management of an investment property, consider a Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) as a solution. DST investments are offered as replacement property for accredited investors seeking to defer their capital gains taxes through the use of a 1031 tax deferred exchange and as straight cash investments for those wishing to diversify their real estate holdings.
A DST investor may benefit from a professionally managed, potentially institutional quality property with property management and asset management teams that make all decisions regarding the property.
An active asset management team consists of real estate professionals that analyze market trends from acquisition to disposition of an asset. This active approach adds value not only to the real estate but also increases potential earnings for the investor.
