Tax-Advantaged Real Estate Solutions

1031 Exchanges, 721 Exchanges, and Delaware Statutory Trusts

A 1031 exchange is often used when an individual is looking to sell investment real estate in a tax efficient manner enabling the indefinite deferral of capital gains tax. A 721 exchange, on the other hand, allows the investor to exchange into the operating partnership of a REIT.

One way to conduct a 1031 exchange is by utilizing a Delaware Statutory Trust (DST), which is recognized by the IRS as qualified replacement property. DSTs provide turnkey solutions to complete exchanges for investors who may not have the time, energy or the expertise to find and manage a replacement property, or for individuals seeking access to more institutional quality properties and management.

Cantor Fitzgerald Asset Management offers a variety of DST options comprised of institutional-quality properties for investors seeking a passive solution to satisfying their 1031 and/or 721 exchange. Cantor Fitzgerald has extensive experience managing a multi-billion dollar portfolio of DSTs.

Qualified Opportunity Zone Program

The Qualified Opportunity Zone Program created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, is a tax-incentive program designed to encourage long-term private sector investments in designated communities known as qualified opportunity zones by offering certain tax benefits to investors through qualified opportunity funds.

Individuals and entities may invest short- or long-term capital gains generated from a wide range of assets into qualified opportunity funds (QOFs). The potential tax incentives include the deferral of taxes owed, pass-through depreciation, and ultimately the elimination of future capital gains tax on any appreciation of the investment as well as the elimination of any depreciation recapture expense.

Cantor Fitzgerald and Silverstein Properties launched an opportunity zone partnership in early 2019 to invest in, develop, redevelop, and manage a diversified portfolio of institutional quality commercial real estate assets. The partnership manages a multi-billion dollar portfolio of projects in various stages of development.
