Asset Protection

Protecting your wealth is a critical step in transferring generational wealth. Taxes, probate and family disputes are all considerations to plan for.

Taxes are one of The Greatest Obstacle to Building Generational Wealth!

When you sell real estate, the sale may be subject to taxes based on the gain in value of the property. The gain in value is classified as a capital gain and the potential tax associated with that gain is referred to as a capital gains tax. Capital Gains taxes can be one of the largest obstacles to building generational wealth.

The Capital Gains taxes you incur when selling real estate in many cases can be reduced, deferred or eliminated all together by leveraging the right strategies.

Capital Gains Taxes Reduce Wealth

It is important to understand that each dollar of tax paid reduces your wealth. Therefore It is crucial that you seek guidance of a trusted tax advisor and our team when selling your primary residence or investment properties.

You Must Understand Cost Basis

Understanding Cost Basis is a critical component of minimizing or eliminating capital gains taxes, since it is one component used in calculating the tax associated with a Capital Gain. Through a real estate plan we look to employ strategies to minimize or even eliminate capitals gains taxes, enabling families to pass more wealth to future generations.

Step Basis Vs. Carry Over Basis

Cost Basis may be stepped up, as in the case of death of the property owner, or carried over. In partnership with your trusted Tax Advisor, and with proper planning, we can employ strategies to minimize the impacts of Capital Gains Taxes and meet the objectives of the family.

Estate and Inheritance Taxes

When an estate is transferred to heirs, the value of the estate may be subject to Estate Taxes and the heirs may be subject to inheritance tax. This is an important to speak with a trusted tax advisor to understand the impacts, if any, of these taxes when creating generational wealth. *

Probate is the legal process used to settle an estate, pay off debts, and assign assets to heirs or beneficiaries. The process of selling real estate through probate is a court-regulated series of steps that must be carefully monitored and managed. Deadlines are unforgiving, documentation is specialized, and the court’s oversight must be honored throughout the marketing, offers, negotiations and sale of the property. As such, you may expect delays and expenses incurred as a result of the probate process.

I Have a Will

A Will is a a document, prepared and executed by a person with the formality required by the laws of the state of his domicile at the time, which is intended to govern and direct the disposition of his estate and settlement of his legal affairs at the time of his death and which has no legal effect until his death. Typically having a will will not avoid probate, rather the probate process will be used to interpret the will. It is important that you consult with a trusted legal advisor for guidance. *

I Have a Trust

Holding assets in a trust may avoid the probate process although challenges may still arise when family members cannot agree of what to do with the assets received at the time of death. In this instance family disputes may occur that can be mitigated with proper planning.

Why Trust The Rantis Group?

Do you already know a Real Estate Agent? The answer for most people is Yes. Often there is a family member or close friend who has a real estate license, or even someone you have used in the past.

What we often see is people focusing on the current need to buy or sell their home, and missing out on how the purchase or sale fits into their long-term real estate goals and reacting later in life.

As a Keller Williams (KW) Real Estate planner, our approach to real estate is a bit different. While a Real Estate Agent will focus on the finishing the current transaction a Real Estate Planner helps ensure your current purchase or sale and future decisions you make throughout your lifetime help to achieve your long-term real estate goals.

You will be amazed how a conversation with a KW Certified Real Estate Planner can effect your ability to Build, Protect and Transfer Wealth through real estate.
