Real Estate Experts

As a designee of the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) and Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS network, Seidl & Associates has been nationally recognized as an expert in investment real estate.

Comprehensive analysis of the components of investment real estate is a standard procedure at the company. Factoring present value with periodic income or payments, financing, length of ownership and future value yield valuable data for investors to make intelligent decisions.

Our advanced software is capable of producing multiple scenarios for each investment. The "spin" features of the program allows for a best to worst analysis of any property under examination. In addition to the "popular" cash flow feature, the program considers pre and after tax returns and final disposition (sale) of the property.

This "overall" look at an investment produces the internal rate of return (IRR). The critical number by which most investments should be measured.


Real Estate is a unique investment in several ways. One of the more lucrative benefits is the ability to sell for a profit without immediately paying tax on the gain

Savvy investors have known for years the compounding power of reinvesting the "taxed" amount into new properties. These reinvestments are allowed through a provision in the Internal Revenue Code sec 1031.

While there exists several creative ways to exchange properties through 1031's the objective is always the same - to defer paying taxes.

The basics of an exchange involve the surrender of a property into another of equal or greater value. A qualified property is one that is held for investment. Upon sale of that property the owner, in lieu of paying tax, may defer by replacing it with a like kind property.

Like kind means property that will be held for investment. The physical nature, location and general type are not factors as long as they qualify as replacement property. (example: A four-family in Green Bay can be exchanged for vacant land in Florida) The replacement property MUST be held for investment or the exchange will be disqualified.

Group Inve$tment

As quality local investments become increasingly difficult to locate, identify and "institutional" real estate is rarely local nor affordable, new strategies have evolved to accommodate the average real estate investor.

Group investment, or partnering, is not a new concept but in the past was mainly done by development type groups for the completion of projects.

Because of the large capital requirements of current investments and a switch in paradigm to over capitalize (vs over leverage) investments have opened the way for non-developer investors to take substantial interest in real property while maintaining a passive role.

Seidl & Associates has formed several of these investment groups over the years and constantly seeks new opportunities for investors. (This is not a solicitation) email me if you would like to discuss this issue.

TIC Investments

The once popular TIC(Tenant in Common) investment vehicle of the mid 2000s has faded from view. Billions of $ were raised by organizers to purchase institutional grade real estate. Unfortunately, the aggressiveness of the organizers and collapse in collateral values created tremendous losses to "passive" investors. Becuase the TIC form of investment was similar to a limited partnership ownership was real and not in the form of securities like a REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust). TIC properties also qualified for tax deferred exchanges but lost most of their value in many deals.

TICs are still around and the number of organizers has diminished significantly. Many a lesson was learned by the industry the past 6-7 years and today investment in TIC is probably safer than ever.

Another form of "limited partner" investment is the DST. Delaware State Trusts are structured very similarly to TIC and are growing as a popular investment vehicle at the expense of TICs. Virtually the same type investment grade property is purchased and paid for with incremental interests who establish their LLC in the tax favorable state of Delaware.

Management is always provided both for the property and the investment group leaving litte for individuals to "manage". Liability is also limited to the amount of the money invested by each member of the LLC.
