Simplify your Real Estate with Professionally Managed DSTs

What is a DST (Delaware Statutory Trust)?

The Delaware Statutory Trust is an alternative to exchanging into more real estate. Following all the rules of the 1031 Exchange, DSTs allow you to move from active management of personally-owned real estate to investing passively in institution-grade investment properties, managed by a DST sponsor.

Maximize Your Returns with DST Investments:
Three Key Paydays


Tax-Deferred Savings:

Investing in a DST allows you to leverage the full amount of your capital gains, thanks to tax deferral. In states like Texas or Florida, you defer the potential 23.8% capital gains tax, while in higher-tax states like California, you defer up to 37.1%. This means instead of investing just 62.9-76.2% of your gains (after taxes), you can invest the full 100%, compounding your investment power.


The Goal Of Monthly Income:

DSTs offer the allure of a potentially steady cash flow, with returns typically in the range of 4-6% annually. This income is a direct result of the DST sponsor’s ability to profitably manage the underlying real estate, distributing achieved profits monthly throughout the investment period. With pass-through depreciation, some or all of this income may also be tax-free.


Profit from Asset Sale:

The goal of the DST sponsor is a sale of the DST’s real estate assets for a profit, usually within 5-7 years (and sometimes 10 or more).The lifecycle of a DST can align well with overall market cycles. This means that in addition to regular income, you stand to gain a share of a profitable sale upon the trust's liquidation.

The Bottom Line:

Investing in a DST can yield an impressive internal rate of return when you consider the ENTIRE lifecycle of the investment. This encompasses initial tax savings, consistent income generation, and the final profit from the asset sale, making DSTs a powerful tool in your investment arsenal.
