A private real estate investment can be something from the corner lot a fractional ownership interest in a strip center across the country. We will focus on investment property producing an income bands retail, office buildings, warehouses and apartment buildings. The following principles apply to a single tenant net lease investments, such as kiosks or fast food restaurants and virtually all other forms of investment in real estate, including the most recent structure, a tenant in common, or TIC.

A word of warning here, if the transaction does not work without the tax benefits, do not let that be the deciding factor. The tax advantages are purely a sweetener long and should never be used to make a difference.

Cash flow is defined by a positive income stream from rents paid by tenants, less the costs incurred for the operation and ownership of the property, including debt service. In general, investors are looking for a positive cash flow with income over expenditure at an annual rate of return on risk. The higher the risk, the higher the expected rate of return for investors. In some cases, investors see the opportunity, even if there is a negative and / or a little cash flow. In this case, the investor sees a clear trend, which creates a “value added” opportunities.

Evaluation – is defined as the increased value of the property during the period of ownership. Generally, the investor anticipates the property will increase in value, and debt on the property will be lower, so the investor’s equity in the property, and equity also increases. The beauty of the investment property is that the tenant does all the work and payment of the debt. I like to think that the days when I’m on the beach and my property that works for me.

The tax benefits can be defined in several ways, but the two most often cited is the deduction of mortgage interest and amortization of property. Another caveat is that this small is a highly technical field, and a tax qualified professional should always be consulted before any decision making. You may deduct interest on debt used to acquire the property. In the first year, this could be a significant amount. Later, when the interest rate on the loan is reduced and you pay down the principle that you can watch the sales and exchanges in another property. The other advantage is usually taken depreciation or cost recovery. The IRS provides several means for determining the depreciation of an investor can take on a property. Some of the keys to how much you remove is to determine the investors ‘base’ in the property, they are involved in the affairs of the estate and the adjusted gross income for the investor.

A second consideration is whether the property is acquired by an exchange of 1031. While cost recovery deductions to increase the flow of investor money after taxes, a section 1031 exchange allows an investor to continually “Trade Up” for more valuable properties while deferring capital gains taxes due to the appreciation.

That invests in real estate?

Private real estate investors have a wide cross section of people: fireman, a lawyer, a retired businessman, regional director of the Fortune 200. I worked with people of all religions, ages and points of view, and all have few interests in common. Have the money, which thrive in the investment to retire and enjoy tax benefits. Most people use a tax deferred exchange method on a regular basis for updating the portfolio and defer taxes until a later date. Some investors will be young again to wait for their children are receiving at school and have extra money each month. All investors who have worked with a strong belief in the wisdom of investing in real estate, has a good sense of value, and the large “numbers”.
