How to Determine Business Deductions and Do Your Accounting Based on Cash Or Accrual

Business Deductions
One of the things I try to remind people of is to always be thinking. It’s not only the obvious expenses of your business, there are a lot of other business deductions you should be thinking about. Obviously if you spend $100 to replace a window that’s a business expense – that’s as clear as day.
What I’m talking about is if you have to drive over to your property to pick up rent, that mileage is a business expense and it’s deductible. You should be tracking it and deducting it.
If you use part of your home office or your home to do your accounting to run your business, you can deduct a portion of your home expenses. These are things that are not that intuitive.
Any sort of educational material – books and things like that – are deductible. If you have to wear specialized clothing …

Yes, The Seller Can Get a New Loan

One of the questions I see asked over and over on the REI newsgroups is “Can the seller get another loan?” This is a great question because it so often is one of the objections raised by a seller when a creative offer is being discussed.
The short answer is “yes”. Only in rare situations would a seller not be able to qualify for another loan. This, of course, assumes the seller would typically qualify if they were not going to leave their loan behind. Let’s explore explanations that can be used with the seller.
Straight Rental
If the seller doesn’t sell the house and plans to move anyway, the seller will be forced to either lose the property to foreclosure or lease the property out soon.
Yes, there are other solutions, but this is what the typical motivated seller sees as their options by the time they jump on …

Real Estate Investment Tips – Understanding Property Appreciation in Pune

Real estate investors buy property when they know that the property will gain in capital appreciation – but it is not only property investors who are attracted by this phenomenon. There is also greater interest for buying property in Pune rather than for rental properties, since real estate appreciation allows them to increase their personal net worth.
What causes property prices to rise in areas such as Pradhikaran and other parts of Pimpri Chinchwad? This phenomenon – a key concept behind real estate investment – is called appreciation, which is nothing but the enhancement of a property’s market value over time. Real estate appreciation takes place because of various factors, including:
• The supply and demand dynamics of a particular location
• Inflationary pressures
• Home loan interest rates (cost of borrowing)
• Arrival of new real estate market drivers in a location
• Population growth

Choosing a Corner Sofa Bed

Choosing a Corner Sofa Bed

Sleeper sofas can be a bit touch and go. People get them with the idea of getting more functionality out of a piece of living room furniture, but this only becomes reality if the product is well designed. In truth, many sleeper sofas aren’t worth the money because the sleeper part can be so uncomfortable to sleep on that sleeping on the ground would be a better alternative (this is especially true of those pull-out metal frames). If you don’t know what to look for in a sleeper sofa, you could end up getting something that leaves you dissatisfied, to say the least. Of course, if you want guests to leave your home sooner rather than later, you might want to purposely get one of these back killers. That would be wrong, though, so let’s talk about some of the best sofa beds on the …

A Great Time to Invest in Real Estate

Yes, it’s true; we are experiencing what may go down as the worst real estate market in the history of the United States. Historically, real estate investments were treated as one of the best and safest ways to invest your hard earned money. Despite what you may think or hear, right now, may very well be the opportunity of a lifetime when it comes to investing in real estate. It can be argued that the next 12 – 24 months will be a great time to invest in properties.
Real estate investment is a simple concept, buy property at a low price and sell it at a higher price so as to make a profit out of it. That being said, the most important part of good investment is to get hold of properties which can give you good returns. Buy low and sell high. Property is at an all …
