Qualified Intermediary Partnerships
1031 Exchange DST works together with our Qualified Intermediary partners to complete the exchange process for our client. The role of the QI, also known as the facilitator or accommodator, is to facilitate the 1031 exchange transaction and as a matter of fact, by definition, a 1031 Qualified Intermediary (QI) is an independent and professional facilitator who receives the funds. They handle the funds from the original sale and hold the funds until they are needed to purchase the new exchange (replacement) property. The QI then directly delivers the money to the closing agent who then, in turn, delivers the deed directly to the real estate investor themselves.
