Certain property is ineligible as exchange property under Section 1031. Examples of ineligible exchange property include:
a) stock in trade, inventory or other property held primarily for saleb) stocks, bonds or notesc) an interest in a partnershipd) a personal residencee) a vacation or second home that is used by the taxpayer or his family for more than two weeks out of the year, or 10% of the actual number of days the property has been rented in a given year.
