Exploring tax benefits for investments is crucial, and when it comes to real estate, multifamily stands out as a prime choice. These investments offer stable returns and many tax incentives that can substantially mitigate operational expenses. While the savings amount varies, each incentive presents an opportunity worth capitalizing on.

In this guide, we’ll dive into the diverse tax benefits accessible to both multifamily property owners and investors in real estate syndications. This guide is for educational purposes and should not be a substitute for professional tax advice. Investors should consult with a tax professional to maximize tax benefits within the scope of the law.

Depreciation Tax Benefits

Real estate investment offers a unique advantage through depreciation, a tax benefit that acknowledges the natural wear and tear of assets over time. While real estate generally appreciates in value, the IRS still allows for depreciation tax deductions, similar to vehicles and other assets. This deduction reduces tax liability despite the property’s increasing value.

Depreciation works by recording a yearly non-cash expense as a portion of the property’s value, lowering taxable income without affecting cash flow. The IRS provides guidelines for depreciation periods, typically allowing for a 27.5-year period if the investor abides by limits on interest deductibility. However, depreciation can extend up to 30 years if the investor decides to fully deduct business interest.

Here’s how it works: Suppose you acquire a multifamily apartment building for $4 million, with $800,000 allocated to land value (non-depreciable). The remaining $3.2 million can be depreciated over 27.5 years, resulting in approximately $116,364 in annual depreciation.

Depreciation is governed by specific rules and limitations, including the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) and the potential recapture of depreciation upon property sale. Maintaining detailed records and consulting with a tax professional are crucial.

Cost Segregation Tax Benefits

Real estate investors are incentivized to maximize depreciation deductions each year, and cost segregation is a powerful strategy. This approach involves reviewing the property and categorizing its components for accelerated depreciation and decreased tax liability. A cost segregation study should be performed by a third party expert.

Typically, all elements of a real estate investment are depreciable except for the land itself, which is a fixed cost. A multifamily property can usually undergo straight-line depreciation over 27.5 years. However, a cost segregation study splits the property into four categories with shorter depreciation periods:

  1. Personal Property: Items like furniture, fixtures, and window treatments are typically depreciable over five or seven years.
  2. Land Improvements: Including parking lots, landscaping, and swimming pools, these items depreciate over 15 years.
  3. Building Components: Structural elements like roofing and plumbing systems are depreciable over 27.5 years for residential buildings.
  4. Land: Any unallocated amounts end up here. Because land isn’t depreciable, the goal is to minimize this amount.

By reclassifying non-structural items as personal property or land improvements, owners can depreciate them over shorter periods, significantly accelerating depreciation. While cost segregation increases annual tax benefits, please note that utilizing these tax breaks may inflate the tax bill upon selling the property.

Cost segregation is another tax benefit that will increase the ROI of a multifamily investment and help you build more wealth with real estate. Strategic planning and expert advice ensure optimization of this tax benefit within legal parameters.

Passive Income Tax Benefits

Understanding passive income tax benefits is crucial for multifamily real estate investors aiming to optimize returns and minimize tax liabilities. The IRS distinguishes between passive and active real estate activities, with passive investors benefiting from lower tax rates.

Investors who spend less than 500 hours annually on real estate activities are considered passive. By remaining under this threshold, investors can avoid higher federal income tax rates, resulting in substantial tax savings.

Research to determine how many hours you spend on real estate activities and the potential tax savings of becoming a passive multifamily real estate investor. The tax benefit from working less than 500 hours can save you a lot of money annually. By investing in a real estate syndication, you would likely be granted passive status by default.

1031 Exchange Tax Benefits

Derived from section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code, a 1031 exchange is a tax break that allows you to defer capital gains taxes when you sell an investment property and reinvest the proceeds into a “like-kind” property of greater or equal value.

Consider the specific criteria to qualify for this tax break:

  1. The new property must be “of the same nature or character” as the old one.
  2. Both properties must be used for business or investment purposes.
  3. The new property valuation must be the same or higher value.
  4. The new property must be identified within 45 days of the sale, and the purchase within 180 days.
  5. The tax return and the name on the relinquished property’s title must be the same for both properties.
  6. All the equity from the sold property must be reinvested into the new property. If you pull any equity out through the exchange, you may be liable for taxes.
  7. Both the sale and purchase cannot be exchanged directly with family members or people you have a personal relationship with.

Investors should hire a professional to review the transaction and ensure eligibility. Errors could result in taxable transactions, hurting your bottom line.

Real Estate Investment Tax Deductions

Rental income is taxed as regular income, and the amount depends on your tax bracket. Related business expenses can be used to offset the rental income and reduce your tax liability.

These tax deductions can significantly lighten your tax load. The IRS allows real estate investors to deduct taxes from expenses such as:

  • Marketing
  • Utilities
  • Mortgage Interest
  • Insurance Premiums
  • Repair and Maintenance Costs
  • Property Management Fees
  • Capital Expenses

You can also deduct state/local property taxes on your federal tax return. Seek assistance from a specialist to identify which tax deductions your property qualifies for, as not all expenses can be claimed.

Tax Benefits Of Investing In A Syndication

Real estate syndications, like Yankee Capital Partners, pool investor funds to acquire and manage properties. Investing as a Limited Partner (LP) in a real estate syndication offers additional tax benefits:

  1. Pass-Through Deductions: Multifamily syndications are often structured as partnerships or LLCs, which are pass-through entities. Income and losses are passed through to the investors, who report them on personal tax returns. Profits are taxed at the investor’s personal rate, rather than corporate rates.
  2. Diversification: Real estate syndications often invest in multiple properties, helping investors diversify their portfolio. Investors optimize their tax positions by spreading out deductions, credits, and gains across multiple investments.
  3. Limited Liability: Limited partners in real estate syndications have limited liability, meaning their personal assets are protected from the debts and liabilities of the partnership.

These tax advantages make multifamily real estate syndications particularly appealing to investors. It’s important to note that the specific tax benefits may vary depending on the structure of the syndication, the properties involved, and the investor’s individual tax situation. Consulting with a tax professional or financial advisor familiar with real estate syndication is highly recommended.


By leveraging the various tax incentives available for real estate investments, you can substantially reduce costs and enhance your competitive edge in the market. For accredited investors seeking to capitalize on the lucrative real estate market without the burden of direct ownership, multifamily syndication offers a compelling passive investment strategy.

Why Multifamily Homes Are the Best Recession-Proof Investments

With recent rises in inflation and high interest rates, it’s increasingly important to make sure that you find the right investments. Investors and analysts are growing concerned about an impending recession as fluctuations in interest rates can directly affect the severity of economic contractions. Because employment rates and consumer spending decline during a recession, investing might seem like a risky proposition; however, multifamily homes have historically proven to be a safe investment during recessions.

Here are the top reasons why it’s a smart idea to buy multifamily homes if you’re looking for a recession-proof investment.

Advantages of Buying a Recession-Proof Home

As with anything, there are both pros and cons in real estate investing; however, the advantages far outweigh any disadvantages. The first advantage is that multifamily homes are cost-effective compared to buying the same number of homes separately. That’s because you can group maintenance costs, making repairs cheaper. For example, you only need to hire one gardener, electrician, or plumber to look at the building. Also, when making inspections, you can visit all of the units at once. There is no need to travel all over town to separate properties.

Multifamily homes are also a big earner for the amount of rented space. Typically, you can charge more than if one family was renting the entire building. Therefore, potential earnings increase significantly.

Multifamily homes spread the risk between multiple renters. Even if one apartment is vacant, you will likely still be earning revenue from the other units. If one tenant becomes delinquent and doesn’t pay on time, the others will likely continue to pay.

Finally, rental vacancy rates remain low during a recession, as housing is a basic need. Rental inflation rates typically remain positive, making multifamily properties a recession-proof investment. In general, moving into an apartment costs less than moving into a home, so multifamily properties should have more success in finding tenants quickly.

How to Find Investable Multifamily Homes

You are not the only person looking for suitable investments during a recession. Real estate owners are holding on to their assets for the reasons outlined above. You’ll need to work harder than usual to find a property that is a good match for your investment portfolio.

You’ll need to practice more persistence and check listings regularly. You can also try to find off-market deals through seller relationships and well connected brokers. The trick is to move quickly when you find something of interest. If you wait too long to make a decision, another buyer could move in ahead of you. Even in a recession, sellers may need to get rid of a hot property for various reasons. Be in the right place at the right time to take advantage.

Real estate investment companies, like Yankee Capital Partners, can simplify this process by finding the right investment properties for you. Using favorable terms from lender relationships, we buy multifamily properties at conservative levels of debt leverage. We also conduct due diligence with our property management and construction teams.

Due Diligence in Recession-Proofing Your Multifamily Homes

Have you bought a multifamily home but don’t know how to make the most of your investment? Tilt the odds of success in your favor by implementing a few steps to recession-proof your property.

  • Tenant Retention: The goal is to keep your tenants in the property for as long as possible. Tenant turnover is costly because you may need to pay for cleaning and maintenance services as well as spend time looking for new tenants. Interview tenants to get a feel for how long they are likely to stay in the property. You can also increase capital expenditures on amenities to encourage retention.
  • Capital Reserve: It’s always a smart idea to save up money for when rental income has a downturn, especially during a recession. Tenants may lose their jobs and not be able to pay for months at a time. Therefore, a capital reserve is vital to get you through potential spikes in vacancy or emergency repairs.
  • Cost Control: Multifamily renting is like owning a business – the aim is to keep costs down to increase ROI. Don’t buy the most expensive furniture and flashy appliances. Instead, look for deals and bulk purchase discounts, as they are a great way to limit costs and boost profits. You can adjust your rent rates while maintaining a positive cash flow by reducing expenses and utilizing your cash reserve.
  • Rent Collection: Rent collection methods are especially important during a recession. You should utilize technology and allow for different methods of payment. For residents who fall behind, you can use software that takes a portion from their paycheck. Post-resident software also helps to collect payments from residents who left without paying.
  • Income Streams: By broadening your income streams, you can help soften the blow to your revenue when tenants become delinquent. For example, you can offer other services to your residents, such as laundry vending.
  • Leverage Point: Buying with a lower leverage point (debt-to-equity ratio) is a safer investment during a recession, as higher leverage poses significant risk due to potential property value declines. To mitigate this risk, opt for lower leverage (55-70%) and choose fixed-rate debt over floating rates. This conservative approach ensures more stability and predictability in interest payments, providing a safer investment strategy amid economic uncertainty.
  • Diversification: It’s a smart idea to diversify your investment portfolio across various locations, property types, strategies, stages, etc. This will help to spread the potential risks associated with a recession.


Multifamily homes are an excellent investment in a recession. All you need to do is find the right deal and make the purchase when it becomes available. There will always be a demand for multifamily homes, which makes it a low-risk investment.

Follow the list of preparation steps outlined above, and you can make the most of your multifamily investment. Take action by contacting Yankee Capital to expand your portfolio and reap the rewards, regardless of economic contractions.

The Hunt for Yield

Interest rates are low, inflation is rearing its head and equity markets are at all-time highs.  This puts many investors at a crossroads and in need of a strategy that can generate income, hedge against inflation, and is largely secular to the equity markets, and our recommendation would be to look at investing in commercial real estate.


There was a time when commercial real estate investing for a retail investor was speculative and the barriers to entry in acquiring high quality institutional assets proved to be high.  Recent policy developments have led to accredited investors being able to access these prized assets and benefit from the income, appreciation and tax benefits once only available to large institutions.  Not all commercial real estate has performed well however, with retail and hospitality properties bearing the brunt of negative effects of the pandemic over the past year.  On the other hand, one of the shining stars in commercial real estate has been multifamily properties owing to the basic fact that people will always need a place to live.


Within multifamily properties, B-Class middle income housing has proven to be a strong performer simply by being in the middle.  It is the largest pool of renters who may have student debt or are unable to afford a down payment and are likely to remain renters for an extended period of time.  In times of economic boom, renters in C-Class apartments will upgrade to B-Class and in times of economic uncertainty, A-Class apartment residents will trade down to a B-Class community to save money.  Being in the middle is comfortable, relatively safe and lucrative.


With regards to income and returns, B-Class properties can punch above their weight when combined with a “value add” strategy.  This involves exterior and interior updates that bring the property up to modern standards, commanding higher rents and driving the overall value of the property upwards.  Investors can enjoy a passive stream of tax advantaged income from the property starting on the very first day of investment and will see these cash-on-cash returns grow as the capital improvement plan progresses and the rents grow.  At the end of a typical holding period of 5-7 years, the property can be sold, refinanced or rolled tax-free into a different property.  This is where the value of the property improvement process is realized, delivering strong returns on the backend at a capital event. 


Between the income, tax benefits, appreciation, and principal protection of owning a real, stabilized asset, a pivot towards a multifamily investment strategy may be exactly what a sound investment portfolio needs in these times.

6 Factors That Influence a Real Estate Investment Market

Location is king in real estate, but the market is queen when one desires a great real estate investment. Finding a strong market reaps benefits beyond what a good location can offer. A perfect spot is not always a guarantee of a successful market. Ignoring that fact can hurt your business plans.

However, if you got yourself a great location with a robust market, you are on your way to achieving a great return for your real estate investments. The intensity of a powerful market is a big portion of your business plan that you must consider. Some investors recognize its significance when it is too late, and all that is left is regret.

The real estate failure rate is high. Investors suffer from a 95% chance of unprofitability as a result of factors they ignored before they began investing in property. Investing capital, an experienced mentor, an advertising budget, and knowing the current market are among the neglected items. Passive investors must examine which markets are strong enough, as well as which ones need to be avoided.

Though it is never easy to identify red flags beforehand, being aware of possible issues that you may encounter while venturing into real estate investments is essential to prepare your action plan. Read on and spot these specific warning signs to dodge unwanted investment mishaps! Hiring a real estate asset management company will allow you to avoid these investment mishaps altogether.

1.   Rent to Income Ratio

As residents only have so much to pay for rent, a higher cost for rentals might not be the wisest thing to do. The rental fee should be proportional to the standard income ratio to entice people to acquire units. If you stretch the value by 40% more than a rental would typically cost, expect a decline of demands.

Residents also anticipate every penny they spend on their basic needs. Apart from finding a place to call home, they have other things to consider, such as food, electricity and water bills, clothes, and other household essentials. By putting your feet in your clients’ shoes, you will have a better view of what factors are preventing them from renting your property.

2.   Population Growth

Since the real estate business is mainly for families looking for household dwellings or employers planning to erect buildings, low population growth will impact your target market big time. The domino effect will then start from the declining market to the overall real estate economy.

A few factors behind the decline of the population growth in an area include net migration, the number of households, and overall population trends. Any place is a candidate for low population growth instances, so choose an area that will likely surpass such hurdles.

3.   Regulations

Every area or region has local government regulations to maintain an organized community. Suppose you are planning to extend your real estate investment market in a specific place. In that case, you must be fully aware of its protocols and follow the mandatory ordinances that the local authority has instilled.

Regardless of what type of real estate investment, being observant and keen on the structure, policy, and systems of the place will help your future proposal attempts become more successful.

4.   No Job Diversity

You should not invest in areas where a single industry employs more than the marginal bar of 20 to 25% of the area’s total population. If a single industry employs too much of the community, your exposure to that industry’s boom and bust cycle is far too high, and a simple downturn can lead to your bankruptcy.

That small downturn will have a huge effect on the real estate investment market since the residences living in the place are the frontlines that will be affected by the company’s fallback. It would be hard for them to pay for rent and the valuation of the property. Not to mention that the Net Operating Income or NOI will hit rock bottom.

5.   High Inventory

The two key metrics in business are supply and demand. Real estate investors, such as those in multifamily sectors, must be aware of the market’s current absorption rate. Let’s say you find a community you want to invest in, first you’ll have to look up how many new residences were built in the last year. Next, you want to find out how many of those are occupied; if a significant amount of them are empty, then the data clearly shows that there was an oversupply in the market. Its excess allocation is a solid reason for a market to be ineligible as an investment location.

6.   No Job Growth

One basic factor why most real estate investment markets are likely impossible to prosper is because there is no job growth in the chosen area. If there are no posts available for the residents to generate income, a lack of population growth and low demand for real estate will follow. Investors may check out employment data and yearly jobs on some accessible sites.

Make an Informed Decision

Real estate investors may encounter critical points, but that is where adept examination and thorough survey come in. If these factors are considered, investors will have a higher chance of running the real estate investment market smoothly.

The 4 Multifamily Trends That Will Make You Wealthy

Multifamily-type dwellings have paved the way to smart and practical living. There can be a lot of options as to where to invest your hard-earned money, yet it is always fruitful to consider the ones that have long-term potential — specifically the housing and property industry.

The occupancy rate of multifamily buildings in 2019 reached a peak of 96.3%. This high occupancy rate is despite the growth of available units by 3% each year.

Properties under such housing categories are surging in different parts of the world, indisputably in the United States of America. The National Apartment Association claims that the country needs to acquire another 4.6 million multifamily house units by 2020 to meet the demands of dwellers and investors who are thrilled to engage in the development assets.

All these numbers are from before the Coronavirus Pandemic, and that should be exciting to investors because this is one of the few investments that shouldn’t see a negative fallout, people still need a place to live, and with more people than ever working from home, they’ll need to invest more into their homes in the coming years.

Here’s a list of the top 4 multifamily trends that will make you wealthy, whether you invest yourself or use a trusted commercial investment company.

1.   New apartment construction’s inability to meet demands

A total of 225,000 rental units were built ready for occupancy in 2019. However, the recent count is not proportional to the increasing demands every year. Developers predict that the increase of prospective buyers and investors could continually rise for the next ten years and beyond. To accommodate these escalating bids there is a need to build 800,000 units

The imbalance of data in multifamily apartments is significant in driving target settlers’ occupancy and rental options. The lapse of time that developers are setting is considered a wise and smart move in helping the industry prosper.

Construction lags are seen as a “recovering economy”. The halted new apartment projects will eventually open, expecting an expansion of 4% of all the available units.

2.   Two large generations turning to rentals instead of homeownership

Baby Boomers and Generation Y are the two cohorts that changed the game in independent living. It has been observed that Baby Boomers are more likely to turn to rental properties rather than homeownership. The same goes for Generation Y individuals — who are also contributing to the rental surge.

Modern lifestyles have shaped the current generation and encouraged them to walk away from the norm of owning property. A Freddie Mac Multifamily released research tackled the evident rental behavior among the two generations. According to the research, 73% of Baby Boomers believe renting is more practical than buying a home. Following the number of the elder group, Generation Y runs with a percentage of 31%.

The main concern and reason for the shift is affordability. According to the study, renters believe that their economic situation has improved since they decided to choose rentals over homeownership. Consequently, the rental surge today fuelled the growth of commercial real estate under the multifamily sector.

3.   Increasing demand but decreasing vacancies

Reducing apartment vacancies increases the demand by around 5% in many multifamily residences. From the previous track record of 4.6%, Moody’s Analytics REIS revealed that the said vacancy rate for apartments will escalate in the third quarter. Most firms are crossing their fingers for a major climb of 5.4% by the end of this crisis until the year 2021.

Furthermore, the rising rental trends attract people who are looking for a wider selection of housing. It also lowers the markets’ cost. Such demographics boost the rental housing market value, which is one of five features of every great multifamily market. Effective renting is a measure that developers use to determine the surge of apartment demands.

4.   More are leaning into renting instead of homeownership

Homeownership levels is the term that describes the ratio of those who rent to those who own. For seven consecutive years, homeownership has been on the verge of decline, and development experts foresee that the trend may continue. According to a survey, the number of Americans owning a home was at its lowest peak in 15 years.

As a stark contrast to the fading surge of homeownership, there were 1,000,000 renters who set foot in the market during the same year. The dramatic shift started in the year 2016 when 4,000,000 households turned to rentals.

Make Informed Decisions

Societal and environmental factors, coupled with new changes in behaviors, have made drastic impacts on the housing and property industry. With these new trends completely changing the game for multifamily investors, it’s safe to say that there’s bound to be a significant increase in cash flow and ROI. You want to make sure you make informed decisions and fully evaluate each investment property before investing money into them.
