What you need to know about DEPRECIATION

Today’s real estate investing word is depreciation.

Depreciation is when a property decreases in value. The benefit of that is you can write that off your taxes.

DISCLAIMER: I’m not a CPA or a lawyer. So make sure you talk to those people who understand how that works for you.

So when you get a property, it depreciates… its value goes down with the wear and tear of the property over time.  That certain amount could be used to offset some taxes as you build income on a property, usually on a buy and hold or rental.

TIP: Talk to your CPA or tax professional to see how you can best capitalize on the depreciation of your property.  They must be spread out so you want to have a solid plan to offset as much of your profits as legally possible.
