Demystifying Loan to Value (LTV) in DST 1031 Exchanges

Understanding Loan to Value (LTV) in the context of a Delaware Statutory Trust (“DST”) 1031 exchange requires consideration of the reserves, when making the right financial moves for investors. Not to worry though, this post is all about clearing the fog. When investing in a DST, the LTV is important because it indicates how much debt is paired with the equity.

Using a lower LTV can create boot and will generate more taxable income in the future.
