Real Estate

Mapping out a blueprint to your financial goals

Real estate investors, developers, property managers, and landlords face a complex array of challenges. These include regulatory compliance requirements, new federal and state tax codes, and continually shifting accounting standards that can significantly impact your bottom-line performance.

The key issues or challenges you may face range from accommodating shifts in housing ownership because of generational and demographic changes, to adapting new accounting standards, to capitalizing on tax deferral strategies, including like-kind exchange transaction structuring.

There are, however, opportunities in real estate that continue to make it an investment of choice. It takes keen awareness and constant vigil to find and capitalize upon these opportunities and a team of trusted advisors to structure business, financial, accounting, and operational infrastructure to ensure that the objectives of all stakeholders, from investors to renters, are properly met.

Real estate companies often need assistance in areas such as project feasibility determinations, business process improvements, benchmarking and ratio analyses, and more. Our real estate business clients range from sponsors for Opportunity Zone Funds to real estate investment and property management firms with thousands of units and millions of dollars of assets.

Real estate development in the United States continues to rise making this a financially and professionally rewarding industry.
