Types of Investments to Consider

There are many real estate investment options to choose from depending on what form of return is most appropriate for you (e.g., current income, capital appreciation or tax-free income), how much risk you can tolerate, and your investment time-frame. For example:

Investment Type Cash Flow Risk Capital Tax Deduct Estd. ROI5 Hold Period

1 - Buying a property, quickly conducting intelligent renovations, and selling it at a profit.

2 - Rental properties may include single-family and multi-family homes such as duplexes, triplexes, quads and apartment houses, or commercial property.

3 - For example, turning a warehouse into a mixed-use retail space with loft apartments or converting apartments into condos.

4 - Land is not depreciable. However, like most type of real estate investments, parties taking an active management role (as defined by the IRS) may be able to deduct as much as $25,000 against ordinary income annually.

5 - When selling investment properties, you can usually defer capital gain taxes by purchasing another investment property with the proceeds and electing to treat the round-trip transaction as an IRS section 1031 Exchange.
