So you’ve found a rental property with great ROI, but it’s in a state with high property taxes? Should you proceed with the deal, or look in a more favorably taxed state? That’s our first question for this Q&A Monday!
On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m answering three listener questions. You’ll learn about topics like property taxes, LLC structures, and bank accounts. It’s all here on episode 681!
On this episode you’ll learn:
- Why high property taxes aren’t always a bad thing.
- How to arrange your LLC structure.
- How banking accounts work when you own multiple LLCs.
Why High Property Taxes Aren’t Always a Bad Thing
When you’re looking at an investment, focus on the long-term stability of the ROI. The smaller components of that ROI (like property taxes) don’t necessarily matter. For example, we do a lot of investing in Texas, which has high property taxes. But in that particular market, the ROI is still excellent. Not to mention, many times higher property taxes can mean better schools, more amenities, and longer term tenants.
How to Arrange Your LLC Structure
There are two main ways to set up your LLCs. The first is the traditional hub and spoke model. This is what we use, and have set up through WealthAbility. The second model is called a Series LLC, which we talked about with Scott Smith. I recommend you look into both, and talk with a professional who can help you determine which method better fits your circumstances.
How Banking Accounts Work When You Own Multiple LLCs
If you have a holding company, the holding company owns and operates the smaller LLCs. The holding company pays all the taxes, but each LLC is required to have its own bank account. For further clarification and advice, seek the advice of a certified public accountant.
