If you’ve been monitoring the South Bay Silicon Valley real estate market, you know that home values are higher than ever, largely because inventory is historically low. As interest rates continue to gradually rise, demand will eventually wane, supply will increase, and this historic seller’s market will cool. If you’re similar to the other people our team works with every day, you may have already considered selling your home but don’t want to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in capital gains and depreciation recapture taxes.
But, did you know there are several strategies where you can sell and avoid virtually all taxes, allowing you to cash in on this historic seller’s market and significantly improve your return on your investment? Our team knows firsthand, because we’ve done it and advised others doing the same.
The South Bay market is the second worst in the entire country for rental returns relative to investment value. Sure, rents are high, but not relative to the cost of homes. We would like to talk with you briefly about three options:
1) The first strategy eliminates capital gains and depreciation recapture taxes entirely.
2) The second strategy defers all taxes for 30 years and provides you nearly the entire sale proceeds in one lump sum at the time of the sale.
3) If your goal is maintaining monthly rental income, the third strategy is a 1031 exchange into other investments that would provide higher returns with less hassle. Have you considered “triple net” real estate investment options with 5-10% net returns, where your tenant pays for almost all the expenses (including property taxes, insurance, and maintenance)? These are low-hassle leases, often with corporate guarantees and long (5+ year) terms with built-in renewals and automatic rent increases.
Whichever strategy you pursue, you’ll be able to net more and increase your return on your investment.
Our team can do all the heavy lifting for you to make this a reality – again, we’ve done it ourselves and would love to help you do the same with minimal hassle. Since you probably have a few questions, please text or call us at (408) 877-4209. We value your time and promise to make it time well invested.
