Last week, we thought we were wrapping up this series about how we reached financial freedom and became full-time real estate investors. But then we realized it would be a huge disservice to you to leave the impression that after we reached our Freedom Number, everything was rainbows and unicorns. Real estate is passive to an extent, but there are a lot of systems we’ve had to put in place in order to make our business run smoothly.

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, Natali and I are sitting down to talk about all of the intricacies of running a real estate business. We’ll talk about finding the right legal and tax teams, and our experience with setting up trusts. If you want to learn some of the high level ninja tricks we’ve learned in our investing career, this episode is for you! 

More About This Show
While real estate investing is passive, we’ve had to do a lot of behind-the-scenes work in our business to ensure that everything is working correctly. And much of this has been a learning experience that we figured out along the way. For example, we owned our first few properties in our personal names.

Now we invest exclusively in LLCs, but back when we started, we simply didn’t know better. In fact, we were advised incorrectly. Our accountant at the time was not well-versed in real estate, and instructed us to invest as sole proprietors. The advantage to this was that we had immediate access to our rental income, but we were missing out on the excellent tax advantages real estate investing has to offer.

Things started to evolve when I heard Tom Wheelwright on a podcast discussing the tax implications of real estate investing. Natali then read Tax-Free Wealth, and we made it our goal to work with ProVision as soon as we could afford it.

From there, the ball started rolling. The team at ProVision referred us to our legal team, York, Howell, and Guymon. We’ve learned how to structure our business entities, trusts, and family business in accordance with expert advice. We’ve learned the importance of having the right team in place, and how to teach our children about wealth building.
