A DST may have 200 million worth of institutional real estate property and can be a resource to multiple investors that can get access to this pool of real estate. It's also a vehicle that supports a 1031 exchange. If that's you and you're looking to avoid taxes, invest in Real Estate and do it in a passive way, and haven't heard about this, then you need to listen!
