Here are the five main benefits that I got from reading the article. I have included a short description of each item, if you want more information I highly recommend reading the full article.

1. Depreciation

Owners can recover the cost of rental properties through annual tax deductions called depreciation. Depreciation deductions are defined as a reasonable allowance for wear and tear or exhaustion.

2. 1031 Exchange

2016 Year End Real Estate Report

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017 at 12:13pm. 21 Views, 0 Comments.

Is the house that you were looking at yesterday pending today?

You are not the only one who has experienced this, and more dramatically many listings are pending almost immediately after they come on the market. Even though this is great news for sellers, it is not so great for buyers.

In 2016 the average days on market for Bellingham was 44 days, that is a 15% decrease from 2015. In the first month of 2017, the western Washington real estate market had more pending sales (7,745) than new listings (6,507). No wonder your home search isn’t going very well.

The NWMLS reports that “sellers are able to get away with putting homes on the market in conditions that historically would be rejected by buyers. Now, however, Moorhead said buyers are…

raisehouse_600

If you are looking to strengthen your retirement fund, you have come to the right place. 

Whether you are in your early 20's or in your mid 40's, retirement is probably on your mind. When it comes to retirement, many people believe that multiple streams of income is the ticket to living comfortably. 

Having Social Security payments, retirement funds distributions, annuity payments or a pension is a good start, but there is one more thing that you can do to seal your retirement. 

Real estate investing is often overlooked as a way to earn to additional income, primarily because it can involve maintenance, tenants, vacant units, etc. and some people don't think they have enough time to upkeep the investment. If you are willing to put in…
