1 – Simultaneous Exchange

A simultaneous exchange happens when the sale and transfer of property, titles, and funds all occur at the same time. Any delay in these transfers can cause the deal to be declared null and void and taxes may be owed on any profits earned from the sale of said property.

2 – Delayed Exchange

With the delayed exchange, there is a maximum of 45 days to find the property that the tax-free profits will be used for and a total of 180 days to complete all sales and transfer of property titles. In addition to the numerous tax benefits, the additional time allowance is very appealing to many people.

3 – Reverse Exchange

This exchange, which is also commonly known as a forward exchange, is basically set up with a buy first pay later approach. This is a very appealing feature, but it is tricky to pull off at times because the reverse exchange requires all cash transactions. To further complicate things many lenders won’t offer loans for them.

4 – Construction/Improvement Exchange
