A DST is a legally-recognized trust in which property is held, managed, and invested. DSTs allow investors to pool together their 1031 exchange proceeds into the trust, making it an attractive investment option. DSTs have become the investment vehicle of choice for syndicated IRC Section 1031 exchanges. DSTs can be used with many different classes of real estate assets, can accommodate a wide range of financing in place, and can be structured to have multiple assets. Nevertheless, the qualification of DST interests as replacement property for purposes of IRC Section 1031 is a complex subject, and DSTs that are not structured correctly may be a trap for the unwary investor.
Investors are able to 1031 exchange into multiple DST properties in an effort to lower the potential risks of real estate investing. Typical minimum investments are $100k and asset classes range from multifamily apartments, triple net lease properties (NNN), medical office properties, and all-cash/debt-free properties.
