Cash Deals Being Further Scrutinized by Feds

Back in January, 2016 we reported about the federal government requiring real estate companies in New York and Miami to disclose the names behind all-cash real estate transactions.  The measure was supposedly “temporary” and targeted properties purchased with cash in New York City and Miami-Dade County that met certain thresholds.  Now, flash-forward to the present; a recent article in the Miami Herald discusses some recent all-cash real estate deals (where the buyers are anonymous) that are being snagged by that very same Treasury Department rule.  However, in May of this year the thresholds for triggering those reporting requirements were quietly lowered to $300k (down from $1 million) and now includes trusts, which had previously been excluded.  Indeed…

“Where people get their money is none of my business,” Tony Elias, a Realtor who specializes in selling condos in Brickell and Miami’s urban core, told the Miami Herald in a recent interview. “I don’t see how Realtors can enforce where the cash is coming from. I’m not going on an expedition for that.”

The Passive Income Course with Paul Rossano

There are 3 sides to every deal.

  • The Money – your cash, loans, private money, etc.
  • The Asset – where the money is invested such as real estate, businesses, notes, etc.
  • The Capital Structure – optimal amount of debt vs. equity AND how to structure both.

Most courses out there teach The Money or The Asset side, but very few (if any) teach The Capital Structure side, or “how to structure the deal”.

Worse yet, most investors THINK they know how to structure deals correctly, but very few actually do. This is where most investors lose money!

At the end of the day, knowing how to structure capital correctly is the foundation of success (or failure) for every investor, and here’s a simple example to prove it. If you buy real estate with all cash (no debt) and the market tanks, are you at risk of losing the property? No, of course not! Why? It’s because of the Capital Structure.

So, the question is what is the optimal way to structure capital for your deals?  For example:

  • How much debt vs. equity should you have?
  • Should you use a HELOC (Home Equity Line of Credit) for your down payment, or not? Why or why not?
  • Should you structure the private money you raise as debt or equity?
  • What if your money source is Aunt Mary, should that be different than if it’s Uncle James?
  • Should you put your own money in the deal? Why or why not?
  • How much money should you have in reserves?
  • How can you QUANTIFY and MEASURE risk? (i.e. give risk an actual number – a measurement).
  • How much return should you aim for? (HINT: the higher the better is the worst mistake)
  • How can you have the CONFIDENCE that this is indeed a great deal? (Good return and low risk, backed by real data instead of a “gut feeling”)

The Passive Income Course teaches you all of that and A LOT more. You’ll walk away being able to structure deals like the best investors out there for ANY income producing asset including real estate, businesses, paper (notes), etc.

More importantly you will have the confidence to do deals in the real world as a result of the highly experiential training method, where you’ll learn from doing the whole time.

With this knowledge you’ll be able to quickly identify the right deals, and more importantly the wrong ones. You’ll also be able to raise more capital than you know what to do with once you learn how to cover your downside (aka minimize risk) and maximize the upside of your deals (aka create infinite returns!).

Take the advice of one previous attendee who said “Don’t try to do a deal without this knowledge!”
