Article | March 2, 2020

Taking financial literacy into consideration will assist in forming a clear understanding of personal finance, how to plan for the future, and to achieve one’s financial goals. While such knowledge could be conveyed in high school, or earlier, it seldom is. For those who wish to invest in real estate, being financially literate is crucial in being a successful investor. This often results in leaving people who lack the necasarry knowledge with the belief that they are incapable of qualifying for a home loan. The key is gaining an education in real estate. A homebuyer or investor who skips doing their homework can end up facing a costly situation that can result in further financial hardship. However, real estate is an industry that’s regulated by an extensive set of laws and ordinances so it’s better to start small and focus on a particular niche in order to avoid becoming overwhelmed.

Utilizing your IRA to Buy and Sell Real Estate

Article | March 2, 2020

Self-directed IRAs are the less offered and lesser known of the IRA options. That’s simply because they’re seen as needing too much effort to utilize correctly. The truth is that self-directed IRAs aren’t as complicated as they’re made out to be. Especially if you have the right custodian who offers the services you need to successfully run your account. Similar to other IRA accounts, owners can still invest in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. They can also invest in things like small businesses, boat slips, storage units, parking lots, land, and homes. Interested investors should seek legal advice, as well as input from an accountant and real estate agent for a well-rounded picture. They should also be familiar with the rules for the type of retirement account they’re using. Whether it is a Simple IRA, Roth or Traditional IRA, SEP IRA or Solo 401K, contribution limits still apply, and there are penalties for early withdrawals.

Helping Companies to Navigate a Changing Commercial Real Estate Landscape

Article | March 2, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted most every industry over the past few months, creating a scenario of rising financial stress, retracting employment and diminishing market confidence for companies around the globe.

To that end, according to a recent Bisnow story on data collected by independent research and advisory firm Green Street Advisors, real estate investment trust shares have decreased by 34% since mid-February, while office high-rises have experienced a 10% decrease in overall value across global markets. The same story notes unsurprisingly the retail sector has been among the most negatively impacted product types across the world’s commercial real estate portfolio.
