1031 Exchange

The Industry Leader in 1031 Exchanges

A 1031 exchange is a way to defer capital gains taxes by rolling the equity from the sale of one investment property into the purchase of another. Many clients seeking to increase their returns or reduce their management responsibilities opt for a 1031 exchange to achieve their investing goals.


Marcus & Millichap is the industry leader, executing more tax-deferred exchanges than any other firm, thanks to our vast inventory of exclusive listings and our culture of collaboration and information-sharing.

The Basics

Instead of immediately paying capital gains on the sale of a property (the "down leg"), many investors prefer to defer that payment by purchasing a new property (the "up leg") with the proceeds. This is commonly referred to as a 1031 exchange, in reference to the section of U.S. tax code that defines it. There are specific rules and timelines related to a 1031 exchange, and it is important to have an experienced and knowledgeable specialist handling the process.

Lay the Groundwork

Speak with your real estate, financial and tax advisors to understand the timelines and restrictions and enlist a qualified intermediary to facilitate the transaction.

Sell a Property

The specialists at The Issenberg & Britti Group of Marcus & Millichap have access to the largest pool of qualified buyers in the industry, helping you sell your property quickly and at a good price.

Identify Replacement

You have a limited time to make your next transaction, purchasing up to three replacement properties. Marcus & Millichap has the largest inventory of exclusive listings, giving you a range of excellent up leg options.


As the market leader in 1031 exchanges and in overall transactions, Marcus & Millichap has the experience and expertise to guide you through the closing process successfully and painlessly.

Report Exchange

Your tax advisor must report the exchange on your tax return for the year in which you sold your down leg property.
