Real Estate TIC’s

Where are the Real Estate TICs?

A TIC has become increasingly common in 1031 tax-deferred exchanges since the IRS clarified in 2002 that fee-simple, fractional interests are eligible for use. TICs are technically real estate; however, during their peak in 2003-2007, they were predominantly sold as securities. The fact remains, however, that many TIC sponsors sold their TIC properties as real estate during that period. Investors who purchase fractional interests in an entire property receive their warranty deed in this format of tenant-in-common ownership. The average person can enjoy the right of an institutional-grade property with a minimum investment through TICs. It is possible to own multiple TIC Properties with a minimum investment of $50,000, offering maximum diversification. Investment real estate ownership is made more accessible for passive investors with TIC properties. The advantage of real estate TICs is that non-accredited investors can invest in them.

Income from passive sources

Passive investing in real estate has its downsides. Investors become less willing to deal with hassles, moving parts, and market fluctuations as they approach retirement. Instead of them working for real estate, they want it to work for them. To reap the benefits of passive income from these properties, a person must give up some control. It can be challenging for some people. When considering your objectives, you might ask yourself, “Am I the owner of the property, or is the property the owner of me?”
In most cases, investors are willing to give up control when considering their lifestyle. Receiving passive income can be as easy as giving up day-to-day management headaches, ongoing decision-making, and unexpected expenses. TIC Property owners receive their prorated rent directly in their bank accounts. When you receive passive income, you can be anything but passive – you can spend your time doing what matters!
