All Cash Method

This method is as the name implies. The purchase is made with cash on hand. The funds for the purchase can be money from a refinancing or with available cash on hand.

Parking Method

This method allows the purchaser to finance a replacement property with a traditional mortgage. With this method the title of the Relinquished property is deeded to the Accommodator before the close of escrow on the replacement property. When the Relinquished property is sold, the exchange is over.

Reverse 1031 Exchange Financing

Although difficult to find, a few lenders will, on occasion, finance a Reverse 1031 Exchange. Many lenders do not fully understand Reverse 1031 Exchanges and if approved often carry higher interest rates.
