They now are involved in a more passive investment environment to better suit their lifestyle.

When considering all their options, they decided that the Delaware Statutory Trust structure was best suited for their needs.”

Lapin continued, “Through on and off correspondence for over a year and a half, the clients were able to complete their own due diligence on DSTs. They spent time with us learning about how DSTs could potentially help them all while utilizing the DST investment marketplace at”

Matt McFarland, Vice President at Kay Properties, stated, “This particular client was able to exchange out of a management intensive vacation rental. The 1031 up leg was a multifamily DST offering with multiple properties totaling over 900 units. Needless to say, this $100M+ multifamily portfolio is an investment that would have been out of reach to many investors if it weren’t for the DST structure.”
