This is short for Delaware statutory trust, which is an ownership model used by real estate investors 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.
