Written by Richard Wilson

Used by real estate investors, the Delaware statutory trust is an ownership model wherein a separate legal entity is used to defer capital gains through taxes with the utilization of a 1031 tax-deferred exchange. Compared to other ownership models, the DST’s advantage is the trust’s ability to obtain favorable financing terms as the lender views the entity as only one borrower.
