This acquisition demonstrates the growth of the 1031 Tenant-in-Common (TIC) Industry and its appeal for investors seeking the benefits of 1031 exchange, and the Q1 2005 Edition of OMNI NEWS offers a glimpse of where this market is heading.

Specifically, the securitized TIC marketplace has grown from placing close to $167 million TIC equity in 2001 to placing $1.73 billion in 2004, and it is estimated that over $4.27 billion TIC dollars will be placed this year. This is why seasoned investors, “baby boomers” seeking to build extra retirement income, and others are turning to TICs to meet their 1031 exchange requirements. Further details on the industry are available at www.1031street.com.

TIC properties may be any of the major property types (including office, retail, apartment or industrial) and may be located all across the nation. As a TIC owner, each investor owns an undivided, fractional interest in an entire property and shares proportionately in the net income, depreciation, interest deductions, and gains or losses.

Each TIC owner receives a separate property deed and title insurance for their portion in the property investment. This provides the same rights of ownership that a single owner would enjoy. Additionally, because TIC offerings are often “packaged” with management and financing in place, TIC may simplify the 1031 process for the passive real estate investor.

Investors should also take note that TIC investments do have their drawbacks such as additional fees (mostly legal and marketing fees) and less liquidity compared with wholly owned investments in real estate.

However, TIC investments provide simplicity by eliminating active management headaches. Individuals who are ready to relinquish the day-to-day burdens of being a landlord, or who own land and would like an income producing property, may benefit from TIC investments. TIC programs provide a "mailbox management" investment that may save you time and money.
