Greetings Real Estate Investors!
The team at Real Property Management Miami wants to wish you a Happy Summer and Grilling Season! Of course one of the best parts of summer is coming next week with the Independence Day holiday on the 4th. So with the country’s birthday right around the corner we thought it would be a great time to reflect on the many freedoms we have in this great country and how they apply to real estate investment and property ownership.
Property and the Essence of Freedom
Of course the beginnings of property ownership happened well before the birth of this nation and are highly complex. But suffice it to say that the freedom of the individual to own property without fear that the government or some other powerful entity might take it away is at the foundation of American Freedom. In fact the famous line from the Declaration of Independence “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” was actually changed from the original intent of John Locke which was “life, liberty and the pursuit of PROPERTY”. But enough history suffice it to say that property ownership is at the core of the concept of freedom. We actually only have to look a few hundred miles to the south to see an example of a government that does not allow its citizens the right to own property to know how truly lucky we are.
Property Makes More Property
Once you have the right to own property fully protected it is even more special what you can do with it. Real property, or “Real Estate” as it most commonly known, has the unique characteristic among assets to be able to produce more property in more than one way. First it increases in value with time and the appreciation of the area and second it can be rented out to actually earn income.
Freedom From Excessive Taxation
Our rights to own property in the country also afford us the right to earn money from that income and to have representation to decide how much we will be taxed on that income. Of course you may not agree with how much you are taxed and you may not even feel you are fully represented but the law says that you are. And if you are not happy you have the freedom to voice your opinion without being persecuted for your statements.
Freedom From Hassle
And the last freedom we want to reflect on is one that is core to our business and that is providing our client’s with the freedom from the hassles of daily management of their investment properties. While it is fantastic to own rental properties it can become exhausting to deal with the tenants on a regular basis. Even the best tenants constantly have needs to be met and even the best properties constantly need maintenance. So many of these issues are small and can be handled easily if you know what you are doing and handle these kind of problems as part of your main business…like we do. But as a real estate investor or accidental landlord you main business is not property management. So enjoy true freedom by letting us handle all of the little issues including the calls at all hours of the night. You will have more time to focus on your core business of finding great investment properties and of course grilling the best hot dogs on the block!

Have a Safe and Happy 4th of July!
