Much like stocks, real estate investing allows for one to be successful through a number of different strategies. One of the most popular ways to invest in real estate is to own a collection of rental properties. Properties that only have one residential rental unit are commonly referred to as single-family properties while apartment complexes that have multiple rental units are known as multi-family properties.
Real estate can be an alternative for those who are not able to withstand the volatility of the stock market. It is also a better investment for those investors who wish to take an active role in growing their capital, rather than passively putting their money into a fund to be managed by someone else. One of the beautiful things about real estate investing is that there are more than one strategies that can be successfully used. Contact Flagstone today to discuss your investment needs and goals.
Opportunity Zone Investments
Reduce your capital gain tax by up to 15%
Earn up to 10 years of capital gains TAX FREE
The tax overhaul bill that was passed in late 2017 garnered a great deal of attention for its changes to the tax treatment of real estate, along with other asset classes. This established the new Opportunity Zone program, consisting of Opportunity Zones and Opportunity Funds.
When an investor divests an appreciated asset, such as stocks or real estate, they realize a capital gain, which is a taxable event. Under the Opportunity Zone Program, if an investor reinvests a capital gain into an Opportunity Fund, they can defer and reduce their tax liability on that gain. Beyond that, they can also potentially receive tax-free treatment for all future appreciation earned through the fund. Together, these tax incentives can boost after-tax returns for Opportunity Fund investors.
