1031 Exchange to Primary while converting to rental?

3 Replies

I've been unofficially advised this is not OK, but thought I'd ask.

I have just sold my rental property that's all set up for a 1031 exchange (45 days starts today).  I also have my primary residence that I've considered renting out when we move.  Is it possible to invest the exchange proceeds into the property that I already own (refinance and add equity) while converting it to an investment property?

Thanks for any advice!

@Jody Des Roches , the 1031 exchange is a sale of investment property followed by a purchase of new investment property.  You cannot exchange into a property you already own.
