It will pay to stay on top of the game this year, every year really, but the IRS is increasing fines for late and non-filers even more this year.  It's time to start thinking about this now and make sure you have the proper TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number) on file.  The TIN is an individual's social security number (SSN) or a business's employer identification number (EIN). At Rentec Direct's blog I highlight why Filing 1099-MISC forms for owners and vendors electronically is simple and cost effective to file them electronically through Rentec's software.  The 1099-MISC form is pretty simple with just a few fields; however, accuracy is key.  One tiny mistake can cost you a lot from the IRS, not to mention inconveniencing your client if they rely on the information (most do).  The IR...

How much would you spend for a tear-down beachfront home in South Maui? There aren't a whole lot of run down beachfront homes in Kihei and Wailea/Makena, so when one comes on the market it's a great opportunity for somebody to build their own oceanfront dream home. Would you spend $11.9M for a fixer upper house and cottage with sand out front?  A recent closed sale on Keawakapu Beach in Kihei is worthy of a blog post, as that was the sale price.  This is prime luxury real estate for those who can afford it.  Hey, maybe it's just a year-end tax write off. 3116 S. Kihei Road closed on December 30, 2013 for $11,900,000. after 329 days on market.  Down from the original price of $13,900,000.  Just a humble 3BD/2BA home and a detached 1BD cottage on .8 of an acre, but it's all about location...

I've been a landlord for around 8 years now (kind of a newbie still) and my husband and I manage all of our properties and our biggest challenges so far (luckily) have been; placing tenants and collecting rent.  The best advice I can give about placing tenants is to absolutely be sure to do tenant screening.  Today however I'm going to focus on collecting rent.I know I'm not the only one out there that gets a nagging feeling when the beginning of the month rolls around.  We pro-rate rents so they are all due on the first, with a 3 day grace period.  There's the select few tenants that pay on the 1st. The remainder tend to push that grace period to the limit and come in on the 3rd or 4th of the month.  The whole time I'm worried if they will be able to pay the rent this month.  If the 5t...
