If its Real Estate – It Must be Real

Guest: Richard Arzaga, Cornerstone Wealth Management inc.

Featured Topics: Holding Business & Commercial Real Estate

If you own real estate as part of your closely held business it is imperative that you manage and hold this asset properly. Creating proper legal entities to protect and organize the real estate is critical for wealth creation and protection. Making sure that proper accounting techniques are used, including the establishment of cash reserves, can be the difference between a successful business asset or one that can be an anchor and drag on the rest of your business.
These issues are crucially important in the context of building toward and preparing for the eventual exit or transition of ownership of a business.

Ask yourself why do you want or continue to hold real estate as part of your business? Is it a critical feature of your business? Does your business need to own it in order to thrive? Is it purely as an investment? Is it to reduce costs such as rent?
