U.S. Property Investors

The U.S. provides great opportunities to invest in real estate. As a result, U.S. tax policy has an impact on the relative attractiveness of real estate as an investment class for non-U.S. investors. U.S. tax rates on capital gains, the taxation of the disposition of real estate (including FIRPTA provisions) and U.S. tax reporting requirements are often cited as examples of policies that may create obstacles to investment in U.S. real estate.

It is important that investors have an understanding of the tax rules and potential planning opportunities available in order to effectively develop a U.S. real estate investment strategy.

Choosing the right investment strategy matters and this is where we step in. It is important to buy into the right structure, rent the property well and maximize your deductions; thereby increasing your cash flow. You also need to dispose at the right time.

Jack Canfield: "I have lived by one crucial principle since I was 24 years old. I don't blame or complain about things like the economy, the government, taxes, employees, gas prices, or any of the external things that I don't have control over. The only thing I have control over is my response to these things."
