If you're selling, just ask your buying agent for your new home ask them to use the same settlement agency that you're using for your sale. The settlement agency can then create the account and easily transfer the money. OTHERWISE, you'd use a different settlement agency for the purchase and the selling settlement agent would wire the funds from the 1031 acct to them so you'll ready for closing on the purchase. If I can answer any other questions, I'd be happy to help! Best wishes otherwise, Kimberly Lawson, Ohio Licensed Mortgage Loan Originator. Contact and licensing information can be found on my profile.
