Preserving Your Family’s Prosperity

Selling Your Ranch and Securing Long-Term Income

By taking advantage of the Section 1031 exchange rules, you can potentially defer or even eliminate the burden of capital gain taxes on the proceeds from the sale of your ranch or farm. By exchanging into other property, you can redirect the funds that would have been allocated towards taxes and instead invest them. This strategy not only offers immediate financial relief, but it also opens up opportunities for further growth and prosperity in your investment portfolio.

Our experienced team will efficiently manage your 1031 exchange from start to finish. From carefully crafting timelines to providing backup property options, we employ strategic steps to ensure a smooth and successful exchange process so you can get back to enjoying life.

The 1031 Process

ROVE Exchange coordinates the whole 1031 process from beginning to end. We believe our clients are clients for life, and we will assist and advise well into the future if needed.

30 Days Before Closing

At least one month before closing, ROVE Exchange begins to research and find properties around the nation that fit the client’s criteria through utilizing online sources along with personally contacting national brokers. Once properties are identified, ROVE Exchange begins to make offers with nonbinding Letters of Intent.

Ranch Closing

Ideally, like to have replacement property(ies) under agreement by the ranch sale closing.

Within 45 Days of Closing

During this identification period, we prepare the purchase and sale agreements prior to closing on the replacement properties. Once a PSA is in motion between the buyer and seller, ROVE Exchange begins the due diligence process—lease and CCR reviews. During this time, we also order the Phase 1 and survey reports—making sure we have enough time to review within the 45-day ID period.

Closing of Investment Property

Upon closing of the property, ROVE Exchange introduces our client to the proper contact for the property and provides a summary of landlord responsibilities and contact information sheet.

Purchasing Properties Nationwide

We source High-Quality, Triple Net (NNN), Leased Commercial Properties across the nation. These low-risk commercial investment properties can help you grow your portfolio and secure your financial future.
