Real Estate Services

First Midwest Wealth Management Advisors1 view real estate as an investment, not simply as property to be managed. We provide the right strategies to maximize the value of real estate assets, while helping clients efficiently navigate tax and legal obstacles.

1031 Exchange

The 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange allows a property owner to exchange existing property for "like-kind" property without having to pay state and federal income taxes on the transaction. When contemplating selling property to purchase other "like-kind" property, it makes sense to consider deferring the payment of capital gains taxes through the use of a 1031 Exchange.

First Midwest Bank has provided services as a Qualified Intermediary for IRS Section 1031 since 1988. We work hand in hand with property owners and their legal/tax advisors to provide a smooth, timely tax-deferred exchange. For those who are not familiar with 1031 Exchanges, we have experienced Wealth Management Officers to guide you through the entire process.
