Today’s low interest rates and stabilized home prices have created some great investment opportunities! Investing in real estate has unique advantages over other types of investments:
- Interest in mortgage loans are tax-deductible. Investors can lower their tax liability while increasing their equity.
- Renters pay down your mortgage loan. Investors reap the benefits of rental income, which offsets your mortgage cost and build equity.
- Real Estate values increase over the long term. Real Estate is limited and will always be in demand.
- 1031 exchanges are available to defer taxable income when you are ready to sell.
Many investors are taking advantage of these great market conditions. Have questions? Give us a call. We are happy to help!
