Real Estate Investment Trust
When a corporation or a trust purchases real estate property using investors’ money, a real estate investment trust (REIT) is made. This is sold and bought on major exchanges like ordinary stocks. Taxation is more advantageous with REITs compared to buying real estate properties as a regular company.
Real Estate Limited Liability Companies
More investors prefer to use Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) because it has more benefits that can protect personal assets. Its main advantage is that the liability of the members is limited to the financial investment they placed on the table. This means if the worst happens, the investors will only lose the assets held by the LLC at most. All the members or the owners of the LLC are shielded from each other’s individual liabilities, specifically debts and other obligations.
