is a good example of how to create a potentially diversi - fied* portfolio, along with this article on why creating diversification is important for real estate investors. 4. Back-up option. One of the many reasons in- vestors should consider DSTs is as a back-up option for their 1031 Exchange. Why is this an important factor to consider? Let’s say that you have suc - cessfully sold your investment property and are now proceed - ing to search for replacement properties that you can manage on your own. In today’s market, you may discover that identify - ing and closing on high-quality “like-kind” assets within the specified timeframe is not as easy as it sounds. This is when DSTs can be used as a backup option. The reason for this is because DSTs are pre-packaged specifically for 1031 Exchanges, so they can potentially be a very helpful tool to have in the bag in case your primary real property option falls through and you’re facing a failed ex - change. In addition, because of the turnkey nature of DSTs, you can often close on them within just 3 -5 days to give you a strategy to successfully complete your 1031 Exchange. Here is a great example of how Kay Properties helped rescue a client’s 1031 Exchange from failure using DSTs. Also, here is another example of how Kay Properties encouraged a client to include at least one DST in his list of potential 1031 ex - change eligible properties, and how this strategy provided a good back-up strategy. DST properties continue to be one of the most popular passive investment option for 1031 Exchanges. Knowing how to best use DSTs to avoid common 1031 Exchange chal - lenges, you will be better situ - ated to potentially complete your exchange and avoid the expensive taxes that could accompany a failed exchange. Kay Properties team mem - bers are always available for in-person meetings, zoom meetings and conference calls with investors to edu - cate and explain various DST options, strategies, and potential benefits and risks.

DSTs can provide a cover strat - egy for your 1031 Exchange: Let’s say you need to replace a $3,000,000 purchase price for a 1031 Exchange, but your real estate broker finds a property for $2,700,000. By investing the leftover $300,000 in a DST, you could successfully avoid the taxable boot. In this way, you could successfully com - plete your 1031 Exchange by acquiring both a real property investment and a DST invest - ment with an aggregate value of $3,000,000. 3. Diversification* and true passivity. You have probably heard the expression, “why put all your eggs in one basket?” If you decide to invest in one single tenant net leased property or one multifamily apartment building for your 1031 Ex - change, that’s exactly what you could be doing. However, DST properties can potentially allow you to achieve a level of diversification that you would not be able to achieve if you only bought a single NNN as - set or multifamily building on your own. By investing in a DST, you have access to a di - versified * portfolio of properties that are often high-quality real estate offerings with very large tenants that are profession- ally managed and potentially provide monthly cash distribu - tions. In addition, you can also achieve a truly passive man - agement structure, eliminating the headaches of the Three T’s: “tenants, toilets, and trash.” Investing in a single-tenant property, on the other hand, means you are relying heavily on the quality of a sole ten - ant. If that tenant fails to pay rent or even files bankruptcy, your income could likely be reduced or even completely eliminated. Similarly, would you invest all of your 401k into one company’s stock, even if that company is Ama - zon or Apple? Your answer is probably No. No matter how great a company is, you probably do not trust it with all of your family’s wealth. In the same way, there is no perfect investment property. You may be able to mitigate your potential exposure to the various risks of real estate by diversifying*. DSTs allow for diversification* amongst a number of different income producing properties.

At a recent networking event, a business colleague asked me how I was spending my time now that I was retired. I told him that I was working as an aqua thermal treatment engineer on ceramics, aluminum and steel under a constrained environment.
