1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange Opportunities

Taxable gains are a concern to every investor. At CWS, we believe in utilizing 1031 exchanges to enhance the powerful benefits of real estate investing by allowing for the tax deferral of capital gains and carrying forward a larger investment base into a newly acquired replacement asset.

Reasons to Exchange into a CWS Capital Partners Property:
  • Reduce management responsibility
  • Reset depreciation clock
  • Improve property performance
  • Consolidation into one property from several properties
  • Divide an estate from one property to several properties for your heirs or for diversification purposes

Through a 1031 exchange, we can defer your taxable capital gains and with the benefit of more purchasing power, reposition that equity into another property we feel will outperform the previous property.

Time is of the essence regarding how long after a property is sold before an exchange needs to occur. Once a property is sold, you have 45 days in which to identify up to three properties to exchange and 180 days to complete the transaction.


  • Since 1985, CWS Capital Partners has completed over $3.2 billion in 1031 exchange transactions.
  • Acquired over 100 properties through 1031 exchanges.
  • Exchanged over $1.1 billion of equity capital.
  • CWS’ current property portfolio consists of over 100 properties (approximately 29,000 units) all managed by CWS.

Exchange Process with CWS

➤ Communication
  • Introductory meeting or conversation to understand your goals associated with your 1031 exchange.
  • Gather information about your 1031 exchange including, but not limited to, projected exchange equity amount, mortgage debt needed to be replaced (if any), timing of the sale, and any extension options that may be built into the sales contract.
  • On-going communication throughout the 1031 exchange process between you and CWS.
  • Direct communication between CWS and the Exchange Accommodator or Qualified Intermediary (QI) to ensure that the property identification deadline and 6-month closing deadline are followed.
➤ Timing
  • It is important to notify CWS as early in the sale process as possible to give ample time to find a suitable replacement property.
  • Key Date: When the buyer of your investment property removes all contingencies on the sale and puts up their non-refundable deposit.
  • Once the replacement property has been identified, CWS will formally present details of the opportunity to you.
➤ Exchange Property Acquisition
  • CWS’ Transaction Services team works with you to gather lender-required due diligence items (financial statements, schedule of real estate owned, resumé, and other required items) and arrange for signatures.
  • Your real estate attorney reviews the tenant-in-common documents along with the loan documents and corresponds with CWS’ legal counsel.
  • CWS works directly with the Exchange Accommodator (the client needs to directly authorize transfers) to coordinate the transfer of exchange funds to Escrow for the purchase of the replacement property.

With over $1 billion in 1031 exchange transactions under our belt and a $7+ billion portfolio of high-quality apartment communities, we can find a suitable replacement property for your exchange proceeds. We have the experience to walk you through the process, help you understand what is required, and act with a sense of urgency to ensure that your transaction closes in a timely manner.
