The Ideal 1031 Replacement Property Alternative

What is a Delaware Statutory Trust?

A Delaware Statutory Trust, or DST, is a legally recognized real estate investment trust in which investors can purchase ownership interest. Investors who own fractional ownership are known as beneficiaries of the trust – they are considered passive investors.

DSTs, unlike many other co-ownership real estate investment structures, are 1031-eligible. Properties held in DSTs that are considered “like-kind” include retail assets, multifamily properties, self-storage facilities, medical offices, and other types of commercial real estate.

Why consider investing in DSTs?
01 1031 Exchange Qualifier

With a Delaware Statutory Trust as a 1031 replacement property, you select the exact undivided interest that meets the financial requirements of your exchange.

02 Deferred Capital Gains

As a 1031 qualifier, a DST can be used by investors to transfer their investment capital while deferring the payment of capital gains on their initial investment.

03 Institutional Quality Properties

Investing in a DST offers investors access to institutional quality assets, which often have the potential to deliver higher returns.

04 Diversification

The selection of property types and geographical locations opens a whole new level of portfolio diversification.

05 Passive Income Potential

Investors have the possibility of receiving monthly returns, offering a chance for stable cash flow through the life of their investment. Returns can fluctuate based on market conditions.

06 Management Free

All Delaware Statutory Trust properties are professionally managed for you. Investors take on no additional responsibility when they invest in a DST.

07Limited Liability

A DST is structured so that investors are protected from personal liabilities beyond the amount of their investment.

08Excellent Financing

DST sponsors are established investment real estate firms with strong lender relationships, allowing them to obtain very favorable terms for their clients.

09Debt Obligation Management

When exchanging into a DST, you determine how much you want to invest and how much debt you want the DST sponsor to assign to you.

101031 In and Out

Since the IRS qualifies DSTs for 1031 exchange purposes, you can exchange out of it when it comes time to sell, and you’ll keep deferring taxes.

11Estate Planning

DSTs offer investors unique strategies for estate planning. Upon the investor's death, estate beneficiaries receive a stepped-up basis for tax purposes.

Case Study
1031 Exchange Resources

DSTs enable investors to benefit from a 1031 exchange according to Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code.

A 1031 exchange is a trade-off in real estate ownership that allows investors to defer capital gains taxes. Section 1031 requires investors to follow a strict timeline when leveraging this opportunity.

Unfortunately, successfully locating and identifying suitable replacement property (or properties) within the 45-day identification window is one of the most challenging issues with a 1031 like-kind exchange.

With our professional guidance, library of resources, and access to properties available nationwide, Perch Wealth might be the solution for your successful 1031 exchange.

What Are People Saying?


"A few months ago, I was a complete novice to the world of accredited investing. While searching the internet and getting bombarded with marketing materials from pushy advising firms, I thankfully came across Perch Wealth and met Doug Zator. As easy-going as he is knowledgeable of the industry, Doug taught me all about Delaware Statutory Trusts and the 1031 exchange, the different sponsors and their defining characteristics, the various asset classes and which make the most sense for the current economy and my circumstances, and even how to navigate a Private Placement Memorandum. He was happy to meet as many times as I needed to learn the process and make decisions I was comfortable with, and he and the Perch Wealth team made the actual exchange incredibly simple for me. I am now a confident investor in multiple DSTs that are generating trouble-free income. The road getting here was enriching, easy and fun - thanks to Doug and the Perch Wealth team. I look forward to working with them again!"
