Unlocking The Potential of Self-Management
As a short-term rental property owner, have you ever considered the potential benefits of self-management? Self-management doesn’t merely provide you with control over your property; it can also unlock considerable tax advantages through a status known as the Real Estate Professional Status (REPS). Discover more about REPS in our detailed guide.
The Power of Real Estate Professional Status (REPS)
When you achieve REPS, you gain the ability to treat losses from your rental properties as non-passive, allowing you to offset other income. This shift can significantly reduce your tax liabilities and boost your net income.
Requirements for REPS
Acquiring REPS requires substantial and regular participation in real estate activities. The IRS uses two tests, the material participation test and the 500-hour test, to determine eligibility. With self-management, you are more likely to satisfy these tests as you are heavily involved in the operation and management of your property.
Benefits Beyond Tax Savings
While the tax savings are a significant advantage, REPS and self-management also empower you with direct control over your property. This control allows you to make decisions that best suit your property and financial goals. You have the freedom to personalize your property management strategy, resulting in a more profitable and efficient operation.
