Real Estate as an Investment
If you have purchased real estate as an investment, you have taken one of the first steps to establishing long term wealth and create additional income. Over time real estate has historically proven to be a wise investment.
However, the responsibilities of being a landlord can be demanding and in today’s fast paced world many people just do not have the time to properly manage their income producing property. Keeping up to date with laws and regulations relative to the tenant landlord relationship present even a greater challenge.

Four Financial Benefits of Owning Real Estate
- CASH FLOW – After you have paid all of your expenses and loan payments, cash is the money you have left over.
- PRINCIPAL REDUCTION – The loan is paid down by the tenant.
- INCOME TAX SAVINGS – The IRS allows property owners to take depreciation deductions, which shelter the cash flow and principle reduction. Any leftover depreciation creates a paper loss, which, in many cases, can be used to shelter other income – such as a salary from your job.
- APPRECIATION – Over time, the property increases in value.
