Attention Real Estate Investors...and Those Who Want to be!

Tax FORM 3115 could be your friend.

I'm no tax expert, believe me.  However, I'm starting to invest in real estate...and I'm a Realtor.  If I didn't share this tid-bit of discovery with you I would be "withholding information".   And that's just not right!

Most of us investing in real estate work with an accountant.  This is a definite "consult your accountant" moment.  He or she may not even realize you could possibly save double on your depreciation...simply by using a more in depth method.  The purpose of this form is to change the way you file.

Our accountants tend to use the building depreciation method.  This method is allowed for the majority of us and is simple.   Did you know that many of us can file depreciation on the building...and personal property...and land improvements involved with that property?  Yeah, me neither.  It's a bit longer way, and you have to keep track of things, but don't we kind of do that anyway???

Maybe you already do this and can comment your experience.  For the rest of us...ask your accountant.  What do you have to lose?

Happy tax time!

"Why Don't We Do It In Our Sleeves?"

Now that I have your mind thinking...DO WHAT in our sleeves????

Today at CENTURY 21 Price Right we dug out an old video we tend to watch once a year.  That one time a year we all refer to as "cold and flu season."  Seems everyone gets their turn at the sniffles, coughs, aches and pains and with the symptoms comes days off work or school and time spent on the couch...something we just don't want to see happen with anyone.  

Save the couch time for NCAA Basketball or NFL Super Bowl or search for our next home...am I right!?!?  

I've decided to share this video information with all of you.  A good watch!  This is how we here at CENTURY 21 Price Right stay... 

                  Smarter. Bolder. Faster. and HEALTHIER!

HEALTH and HAPPINESS

Today, a special day of giving thanks...I'm thankful for my HEALTH and HAPPINESS.   I try to eat and exercise better for my HEALTH...keep life simple and full of adventure for my HAPPINESS.  As I go through life I learn that it is not always within my control to have such great HEALTH and HAPPINESS. Yet attitude can change everything about the way we feel.

So today I think of those who often feel outside that box of great HEALTH or HAPPINESS. I ask for you to find a little attitude with me. Today, if only for today, our attitudes are great HEALTH and HAPPINESS. 

To a Happy Thanksgiving!

GOALS

Do you ever dream?

A GOAL is a lot like a dream.  "I want to have this....I dream of being that."  Do you say and think to yourself, "If only I could..."  They're all GOALS.  Most often...all obtainable...if you hold yourself accountable to the steps it takes to achieve them.  Break it down backwards and make it personal.

What do you want?  A new car, redecorate your living room, take a trip to Alaska..?  Where is it you want to be?  Debt free, 15 pounds lighter, move up in your job...?  What steps does it take to get there?  (You better be writing your answers down!)  Now, how are you going to commit to taking these steps?   It works.  Only you can do it though.  So write it down...write down your GOALS!  Big or small.  It doesn't matter.  Then go after it.  Take it.  Own it.  Be it!

Welcome to the New Year...2014 is going to be your year!  Let's do this!

Granted or For or Never

You could be GRANTED a wish...sounds inviting, huh?  Then when you put that word FOR in front of it...well, taking it FOR GRANTED...that just makes your heart sink.  Then when you put a negative in front of that...NEVER take it FOR GRANTED...well, you're back in business.

There are so many positives and negatives in the world and often times they get mixed up, mixed together, mixed in and mixed around.  One thing I know is...if you're ever GRANTED that opportunity to see your wish or feel love, maybe be that special person for a day...NEVER take it FOR GRANTED.  One shift in life could change that which you were GRANTED into a FOR GRANTED in a simple beat of a the heart.  Live life by seeing all you can see, loving all you can love and then being that special person for a day will just come naturally.  You'll find out what I mean.   ;-)  

NEVER take life's adventures FOR GRANTED...and life's adventures will naturally give back.
