What are the Problems with 1031 exchanges
Would you exchange into a replacement property if you could earn a higher return and have more choices with more security by paying your capital gains?
A 1031 exchange is an excellent strategy to defer taxes. However, what most people don't realize is that paying capital gains tax and investing after-tax dollars can provide higher returns while giving you more control and liquidity than exchanging into a new property.
While 1031 tax deferred exchanges can offer significant benefits for real estate investors, they also come with their own set of challenges and potential drawbacks. Here are some of the problems associated with 1031 exchanges:
Pacific Freedom Fund· A fund that pays you 7.0%—10.0% on your idle capital depending on the amount invested · Distributions: Monthly · Secured by real estate deeds of trust. · No penalty for early withdrawal · Interest payments are made monthly. · Minimum investment: $50,000
What is the purpose of the fund?The Freedom Fund provides real estate loans with short durations (typically less than 6 months) or loans which we sell to institutional investors. In 2022 Pacific funded, closed and sold more than $400 million in loans to institutional buyers. In 2023 our loan demand is expected to exceed $500 million. Loans are sold to institutional investors, on average every other week. Most of the loans we make are to well-qualified borrowers who want to buy a new home before their current home sells. Banks have tightened their lending requirements to the point where it takes a long time to get a loan, if at all. That is our sweet spot. By providing short-term loans, we are able to help well-qualified borrowers get into their new home. Providing short-term loans to well-qualified people is also how we can easily sell our loans to institutional investors.

How are investors paid?Investors are paid a flat interest rate of interest, based on the amount of their investment currently ranging from 6.0%—9.0% per annum, on capital invested.
How is investor capital secured?The Freedom Fund is the lender on all loans that it funds. It owns the notes. The only assets of the Fund are cash or real estate-secured loans. The Freedom Fund’s capital is used for no other purpose. Loans identified for sale are typically not held longer than 30 days.
Despite these challenges, many investors find 1031 exchanges to be a valuable tool for preserving and growing their real estate investments. It's crucial to work closely with qualified professionals, including tax advisors, real estate agents, and legal counsel, to navigate the complexities and make informed decisions based on individual financial goals and circumstances.
