1. Short-term rentals

Pros

Short-term rental properties, otherwise known as vacation rentals, can act as one of the best ways to generate significant income from your real estate holdings. Owners can charge higher rates a day than long-term investment properties and they can also potentially use the home themselves when renters do not occupy the property.

Moreover, home-sharing apps such as Airbnb and Vrbo have

Real estate investing can sound intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Real estate crowdfunding platforms make it easier to add commercial properties and other real estate investments to your portfolio at low costs.

Some of the most common investments these platforms offer are real estate investment trusts (REITs), electronic real estate funds, and non-traded REITs. A

REIT
is a company that owns and operates income-producing real estate assets. Most REITs are available on stock exchanges, but you can only buy non-traded REITs (REITs that don’t trade on stock exchanges) through brokers or financial advisors. Real estate funds are mutual funds that invest in different types of real estate securities provided by real estate companies. 

But account minimums, management fees, and investment options vary for each platform. And while some real estate investing apps serve all investors, regardless of their net worth, others may only accept accredited investors (individuals who’ve got a net worth of at least $1 million).

Rental property owners will benefit from lower ordinary income tax rates and other favorable changes to the tax brackets for 2018 through 2025, says Michael Underhill, chief investment officer of Capital Innovations in Pewaukee, Wisconsin.

Changes in tax laws have resulted in more complications, and owners of rental properties should invest more time and resources on tax planning, says Sarah Hallock, a tax senior manager for New York-based tax and accounting firm EisnerAmper.

“Recent legislation has granted some benefits to real estate investors, such as the potential tax savings from the 20{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} deduction for qualified business income and the immediate write-off for qualified improvements,” she says.

On the other hand, the limitation on business interest expense deductions has had a significant negative impact on leveraged rental activities, Hallock says.

How Real Estate Investment Can Boost Retirement When Pensions, 401(k)s And Social Security Fall Short

Bruce W. McNeilage, CEO Kinloch Partners.

There was a time in the United States where the norm went something like this: Graduate from high school or college, and then work 30 to 40 years with the same company and retire with a pension and a gold watch.

But that’s not the way it works today.

Those pensions? For most Americans, they are history. In 1980, 60{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} of American workers had access to a defined benefit (company-funded) retirement plan. Today, the percentage of workers in the private sector with a defined benefit retirement plan has plummeted to 4{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c}, according to CNNMoney.

Defined contribution (self-funded) retirement plans, such as 401(k)s, have helped pick up some of the slack, but these plans are often underutilized. According to a 2015 report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the median retirement savings for Americans ages 55 to 64 was $104,000. If invested in an inflation-protected annuity, this would equate to a $310 monthly payment.

How about Social Security? The average Social Security benefit was $1,503 per month in December 2020. The maximum possible Social Security benefit for someone who retired at the full retirement age of 66 or 67 is $3,148 in 2020. This

New Study Reveals 87{ac967ad544075fb2f6bcea1234f8d91da186cac15e616dc329e302b7c7326b8c} of Institutional Investors Expect More or Similar Investment Levels in Commercial Real Estate in 2021 Compared to 2020

NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Although the initial lockdowns at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic led to a widespread, sudden halt to many commercial real estate transactions, certain pockets of the industry are projected to have a slow, steady comeback in 2021, while others may experience a V-shaped recovery or a continuing lag, according to a survey of U.S.-based commercial real estate debt and equity investment professionals. The research was conducted by FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) and Real Estate Fund Intelligence (“REFI”) during the third quarter of 2020.

“Our research shows how varied the expectations for the recovery across commercial real estate sectors are,” said Josh Herrenkohl, a Senior Managing Director and Leader of Business Transformation Services within the Real Estate Solutions practice at FTI Consulting. “The areas where investors expect a V-shaped recovery reflect the thinking that in 2021 there will be a vaccine and that everything gets back to normal. But investors also believe that the recovery for some asset classes will take either a slow, steady U-shaped recovery or an L-shaped scenario, with a further drop and no recovery for an extended period (depression).”
