While a forward 1031 exchange allows you to first sell your investment property and then buy another one, a reverse 1031 exchange does just the opposite. So if you identify a property you want but still haven’t sold your existing one, that is okay. A 1031 reverse exchange can be done for a variety of assets and provides the flexibility needed to make a 1031 exchange work while accommodating the needs of your business.
Because they are less common than 1031 forward exchanges, not every 1031 qualified intermediary (QI) is experienced with reverse exchanges. So if you think a reverse 1031 exchange is the way to go for your business needs, make sure you choose a QI who can easily handle it.
