But Bookkeepers Are Too Expensive

Bookkeepers are valuable team members

I've heard this line many times. In fact, I used to say this every year as I spent hours digging around in shoeboxes for misplaced receipts. I hated tax time. It was stressful. I hated getting all my spreadsheets in order, hunting down missed expenses, and trying to understand the difference between a capital expense and a repair.

And then, I put value on my time and realized that if I spent all that time in the spring hunting down an opportunity or actually growing my business, in one deal I could probably pay for ten years of bookkeeping. Here are five more reasons why you should consider doing the same:

  1. Expertise in Real Estate Accounting: Real estate investment involves unique financial intricacies, such as property valuation, depreciation, and capital gains tax. An industry bookkeeper is well-versed in these specific financial principles, ensuring your investments are accurately tracked and optimized for maximum returns.

  2. Time and Stress Savings: Managing your own books can be a monumental task. An industry bookkeeper takes this burden off your shoulders, allowing you to focus on sourcing deals, networking, and growing your portfolio. You'll have peace of mind knowing that your financial records are in capable hands.

  3. Risk Mitigation: Real estate investments come with various financial risks. A skilled bookkeeper helps identify potential pitfalls and suggests strategies to minimize them. They keep you compliant with tax regulations and help you avoid costly penalties.

  4. Enhanced Decision-Making: With timely and accurate financial reports, you gain invaluable insights into your investments' performance. This data empowers you to make informed decisions, adjust your strategy as needed, and seize new opportunities swiftly.

  5. Increased Profitability: Ultimately, an industry bookkeeper isn't just an expense; they're an investment that can boost your bottom line. By optimizing your financial operations, they help you maximize profits and achieve long-term financial success in the competitive world of real estate.
