* Keynote Speaker – Cherry Chan –Tax structure for Beginner to Veteran Real Estate Investors –

You might have heard it all – personal vs. corporation, family trust vs. holding company, corporation vs limited partnership. As you venture down the road of real estate investing, you have different goals and objectives.  You may start out buying single-family homes and duplexes; maybe dabble into property management and Airbnb.  You may do some flips to supplement your income after quitting your job. You may be worried about how to minimize the amount of taxes coming from your flips and Airbnb and how you can’t get financing without job income.  So you’re forced to venture into the 5+ multifamily investing space instead. Or let’s say you’ve built up your portfolio and want to gift it to your kids. Would your current tax structure allow you to give out your portfolio tax efficiently? Whatever investment strategy you decide to use or stage in your investing journey, the big question one must answer is, “How should you structure your next investment in the most tax-efficient manner?” In this presentation, Cherry will cover various tax structures for beginning investors to veteran investors with different objectives and at different stages of investing.

* Keynote Speaker – Quentin DSouza – Optimal Performance Metrics for Your Real Estate Portfolio

* Wrap-up and Burning Questions

* Networking and Developing Your Power Team
