There are different schools of thought on this topic. The best course of action is to speak to your accountant about the tax implications and you could also find a local real estate attorney to discuss your particular area of the country and what the benefits would be.

  • When should I buy an investment property?

    My husband and I have always wanted to have a rental property, but we're scared to pull the trigger. We don't want to stretch ourselves too much financially and get stuck. But we also know that all investments carry some risk. Do you have any advice? At what point should we feel confident with our purchase?
