NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Co-Founders Daniel P. Raupp, Jeffrey A Kiesnoski and Jon Paul Cirelli of Fortitude Investment Group successfully facilitated a Full Cycle 1031 Real Estate Exchange utilizing the Delaware Statutory Trust, DST, for a high net worth accredited investor with the recent announcement from Inland Private Capital Corporation disposition of a FedEx ground facility in Zionsville, Indiana. Inland's sale of the ground facility resulted in a total return to the investors of 123 percent (calculated based on the aggregate amount of original capital invested in the property). In addition, the sale resulted in an 11.95 percent average annual return (calculated using the cash flow from the property's operations, the proceeds from the sale, and the duration of the hold period to determine an annualized rate of return, inclusive of all fees and expenses).  In addition, the team at Fortitude Investment Group, LLC helped another high net worth accredited investor, who sold a horse farm in the prestigious east end village of Southampton NY, successfully complete a 1031 exchange into multiple 1031 Delaware Statutory Trust investments offered through national DST sponsors. The client was able to find these securitized properties through Fortitude Investment Groups website www.1031dst.com. Fortitude Investment Group prides itself with working with NYC's most recognizable and highly acclaimed real estate attorneys, CPA's, investment real estate brokers and national qualified intermediaries to guide accredited investors looking for 100% passive securitized real estate investments to compete their 1031 exchange needs. 1031 real estate exchanges utilizing the DST may be a viable alternative for many accredited investors. They can relinquish their investment properties and diversify into institutional quality securitized real estate DST's, for as little as $100,000.00 in some cases, that can complete their exchange and give them the ability to diversify into multiple DST's in various sectors such as net lease, healthcare, student housing etc. Theses alternative property investments are 100% passive investments to the accredited investors and they hand all control over to the sponsor managing the DST. Typically, the lifespan of a DST program is five to ten years, however can be liquidated sooner if the market and sponsor deem that the timing is optimal.
