More About This Show

  1. Decluttering. Before the year ends, you'll want to ensure that all of your documents are in order. This means making sure that all of your books and balance sheets are in order, and that you're organized for tax time. Decluttering also applies to your responsibilities. We like to think about what kinds of tasks we can outsource in our real estate business. For example, this year we hired a bookkeeper which allows us to better allocate our time and energy.
  2. Maximize your deductions for 2017. This can mean purchasing more real estate, taking inventory of business purchases, and maximizing accounts like self-directed IRAs.
  3. Cost segregation. A cost segregation is an amazing way for a real estate investor to decelerate depreciation. Although the actual cost segregation doesn't need to be completed in this year to reap the benefits, you will want to have your calculations complete by 2017. This is something you should speak with your CPA about.
  4. Acquisition strategy. It's important to assess whether you'll need to pick up more rentals by the end of the year in order to offset your income. Or perhaps if you're planning on making significantly more money next year, you should hold off until then. It's important to have a strategy in place that will be the most beneficial.
  5. Set goals. Before the new year rolls around, you should take a good look at your goals. Think about how you plan to get closer to your Freedom Number and increase your net worth in 2018. 

On this episode you'll learn: 

  • How can a self-directed IRA benefit a child?
  • What are the tax implications of a cost segregation?
  • How can you start outsourcing in your business?
  • What is the importance of working with a real estate-savvy accountant?
  • And much more!
