DST vs Tenancy in Common: Which Investing Strategy is Right for You?
Rick Chess breaks down the returns and risks of 1031 exchange options (DST and TIC) for investors looking to reinvest their capital gains.

Think 1031 exchanges are just for the ultra-wealthy? Think again. This tax-deferral method has helped countless investors build fortunes over the past century, and it’s not going anywhere despite rumors to the contrary.

In this eye-opening episode, we sit down with Rick Chess, a seasoned attorney with over 30 years of experience in 1031 exchanges. Having transacted over 50,000 apartments and advised on billions in real estate deals, Rick is the go-to expert for navigating the evolving landscape of 1031 exchanges. Rick breaks down two game-changing strategies for maximizing your 1031 exchange in today’s market:

  1. The little-known “DST” method that allows you to invest in $100 million properties with as little as $100,000.
  2. The powerful “Tenancy in Common” approach that gives you more control and potentially higher returns than traditional exchanges

Plus, discover why local, state, and federal governments “make out like bandits” when investors use 1031 exchanges – making it highly unlikely this strategy will ever be eliminated. Whether you’re a seasoned real estate investor or just getting started, this episode is packed with insights that could completely change your wealth-building approach.
