How Real Estate Agents can benefit from Cost Segregation - #1

Posted by Jeff on Jul 3, 2008
If you’re an experienced agent, you have a file drawer full of closed deals. Cost Segregation offers you a way to reactivate relationships with your old buyers by bringing their attention to a valuable opportunity—one they’ll thank you for in tough times like these.
Chances are, many of your previous buyers are unaware of how cost segregation can help accelerate their cash flow from properties they already own.  Because it’s a play on the time value of money, cost segregation is best applied starting in the same year the property was put into service. BUT, there’s still a lot of benefit even up to 10 years after purchase.
So dig out those old files, call your buyers, explain the basics, and then email them a copy of our “Building Owner’s Complete Guide to Cost Segregation.”

If nothing else, they’ll see you as the agent who remembered them years after your last transaction. And who knows, now that you’re delivering some value (not just making another lame call that begins  with “I’m following up to see if you want to buy/sell something...”), you may even have some real business to discuss!

P.S. If your broker is amenable, we can work out a finder's fee for you, too.


Cost Segregation and The Needle in the Haystack

Posted by Jeff on Jul 1, 2008

So....What has 16,845 pages and is hated by your CPA?

Answer: The U.S. Tax Code.  And CPA's hate it because their clients expect them to be fully informed on all 16,845 pages.
 
Which, of course, is impossible.
 
That's why the engineers, attorneys and tax specialists at Paradigm Partners specialize in just one section--one needle in the entire haystack!. By doing that, we can obtain substantial tax benefits for our clients, even if some cost segregation has already been done. (And, by the way, we only get paid on the incremental depreciation we can uncover….)
 
What deductions are you missing on your buildings?
 
It's easy to find out, and won't cost a thing to get started.
 
Call me today at 314.629.6183 to schedule a 20 minute conference call with our attorneys and engineers.  By answering a few simple questions, we'll provide a FREE, on-the-spot,  NO-OBLIGATION feasibility analysis. You'll know immediately the benefit you qualify for this year, and the cost of the required study.
 
Don't wait. Call now while you're thinking about it.

What’s the difference between a nail gun and a glue gun?

Posted by Jeff on Jun 13, 2008
A lot if you're building a new building or renovating an existing one.

That's because materials nailed in place become real property and subject to 39 year depreciation. Materials that are glued, by contrast, can be treated as personal property and therefore qualify for 5 year depreciation. That means that, when the opportunity and codes permit, trim such as cove mouldings, etc. should be glued in place, not nailed.

The difference to the building owner is accelerated cash flow.

How many other  tests could the experienced engineers at Paradigm Partners apply to reveal hidden cash flow traps in your buildings?

It's easy to find out, and doesn't cost a thing to get started.
