Qualifying for a 1031 tax-deferred exchange

It is very common for investors in the state of Florida to seek to lower their capital gains taxes. Of course, these people are also concerned with doing so legally.

The 1031 tax-deferred exchange is a great opportunity for investors in the state of Florida. It helps investors to avoid paying taxes on newly sold property if they reinvest the profits into another property. This helps investors to save a significant amount on capital gains taxes while encouraging a healthy property market.

Lease flexibility can give your property an edge

Florida has some great retail markets. There are new businesses popping up all the time. The flurry of retail activity means that the commercial real estate space is active.

With so many options, a landlord can feel pressure to take a lowered rent payment or to charge less to stand out. However, there’s another way to entice business rentals, and it’s all about flexibility.

Key ways to avoid capital gains tax in Florida

One of the most frustrating aspects of successfully investing in property is being subject to capital gains tax as a result of a lucrative sale. However, if adequate research into the law is conducted, it can be possible for those in commercial real estate to legally avoid taxation.

There are several ways to avoid capital gains tax, but the best option for you will depend entirely on your situation. You may even be able to incorporate several of these taxation loopholes to maximize your benefit.

Mixed-use developments are the new hot commercial opportunity

Workers with a long commute in congested traffic may be looking for an alternative, and many of them are getting one. The idea of a place where people can live, work and play all in one community is gaining traction, and Florida is a hot spot for new community developments serving all kinds of skilled workers.

Mixed-use developments are replacing the previously dominant paradigm of zoned residential and commercial estates. The convenience of urban living -- mixed with the easygoing mood of a suburb -- is attractive to young families with children as well as people looking to simplify their golden years.

Real estate LLCs offer protections for investors

Most homeowners are happy enough with holding the deed on their residence and rarely own a second property. In hot housing markets like Florida, many investors turn to owning multiple properties as a way of guaranteeing value for the future.

Owning a property always comes with risks, and they get bigger and more complicated with each new transaction. Many people with long-term housing investment plans choose to protect themselves from many of these risks by forming a limited-liability corporation, or LLC, to legally own their investment properties.

How do I buy a property without money?

The real estate market is rather unforgiving, but you may not even need extra cash to keep playing it. The interesting world of 1031 exchanges may appeal to real estate investors looking to increase their chances of profit.

A ready-made checklist for real estate needs can help buyers

Buying a home is one of life's biggest decisions. The right one can set the stage for a happy future while the wrong one can lead to heartache and years of legal problems. The same holds true for commercial real estate leases and purchases, as the wrong headquarters or location for retail or service businesses can spell the end of a venture.

South Florida is a hot market for real estate of all kinds, and that seems to be true for the near future as well. Major real estate transactions in the Sunshine State can regularly exceed $1 million, and thousands of companies choose Miami or Orlando for their operations.

What should I know if I'm buying my first rental property?

The idea of owning a rental property can be very appealing. It seems if you play your cards right, that you can have income coming in every month with minimal effort.

While you may know you will have to spend some time supervising and maintaining the property, you could still have a considerable amount of time leftover. With a rental property for income, you may find yourself with the time you have craved to enjoy hobbies you otherwise couldn’t enjoy because you had to hold down a 9-5.

Florida's commercial real estate scene continues to grow

Real estate is one of Florida's favorite investments. The values of housing and office floor space in Miami, Tampa and other big markets keep increasing right along with the demand. It's really no surprise -- with a pleasant atmosphere and easy access to key skills in the nearby labor markets, Florida is a great place to set up a business of any size.

Commercial real estate is also widely available, with offerings that are diverse in type as well as size and value. Now, a West Palm Beach mixed-use development is back on after two years of bids and zoning change requests. The owner recently applied for permits to build two towers that will hold apartments, hotel suites and 200,000 square feet of luxury offices that will be far removed from the clog of city traffic and have great views of the water.

Can an LLC protect real estate investments?

Many Floridians choose to protect their real estate investments by creating a limited liability company (LLC) to legally possess assets they have purchased. The extra protection from risk offers investors peace of mind, especially when they own multiple properties.

Changing the terms of an LLC can be complicated and time-consuming. As a result, it is best to be sure when initially filing for an LLC's incorporation that all the requisites are done and satisfy investors' needs.
