DSTs are not suitable for all investors, and are speculative, illiquid, and involve a high degree of risk, including the possible complete loss of your investment.
A Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) is a legal entity created under Delaware law as a trust that holds title to 100% of the interest in real property.
Investors acquire a beneficial interest in the trust, with limited personal liability for the underlying assets. DSTs differ from Tenancy in Commons (TICs), another 1031 Exchange fractional ownership strategy, in that each investor does not own a fractional, undivided interest in a property as a co-owner. Therefore, DST investors are not required to share the associated costs of ownership or be considered “tenants in common.”
