The pros and cons of forming a business for your investments

If you have invested in real estate in the state of Florida in the past, you will likely have a good understanding of the hard work and element of risk that is involved in the activity. Many property developers fall into the real estate industry by following their passion and only further down the line do they decide to formalize it in a business structure.

Property developers have many reasons for creating companies to house their property investments, and it is common for them to choose to start limited liability companies (LLCs) in doing so. Many use a new LLC for every deal that they make. If you are considering starting LLCs for your property developments, it is important that you understand the pros and cons before making the commitment.

What is passive income and should you get in on it?

Anyone who has worked for a living understands active income: money which is earned through performing a service, but few people have experienced the joy of passive income. While setting up the passive income revenue stream may require active work upfront, it becomes a reasonably self-sufficient money-making machine in time. The best example of this is rental income.

Investing in a rental property is something that can be done at any stage in life but more and more soon-to-be retirees are seeing the benefits of the passive income.

Common questions about 1031 exchanges

What is a 1031 exchange in Florida?

Taxes, liens, closing costs and other fees are always at the front of a homebuyer's mind. Without the right resources and strategy, a home sale can wipe out equity or take a deal off the table entirely because of the extra money for middlemen or the government.

Property owners and real estate agents in Florida have room to be creative with home purchases in order to minimize extra costs. One method is not a sale at all but a type of property exchange named after its place in the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) code: Section 1031.

Negotiating a commercial real estate lease

There are many different types of commercial leases. The type of lease that will work for you will depend on your circumstances. This is why it is so important to know the ideal outcome for you and what factors are vital to negotiate.

Creating a limited liability company for real estate investment

If you are a real estate investor in the state of Florida, it is likely that you will be looking for ways to protect your personal liability while growing your profitable endeavor. Many people decide to benefit from the protections associated with a limited liability company (LLC).

Creating an LLC essentially means that you will be able to separate yourself from your real estate investments.

Before creating an LLC for your real estate business, however, you should make sure to carefully consider both the pros and cons.
