CXRE Keeps You Informed

As the Central Texas commercial real estate experts, CXRE knows the ins and outs of the industry. In general, we work in the heart of Houston commercial real estate investment. Because of this, we are always up-to-date on commercial real estate issues. When you work with us, we pass on our knowledge to help you make the best investment decisions. As a result, we can advise you on these and other issues:

Commercial Real Estate Legal Updates

The Texas commercial real estate industry is overseen and regulated by The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC). In order to stay in good standing, firms must stay aware of legal updates. For example CXRE Group (registered as CXRE LLC, License #9004453) is a TREC Corporate Broker .

Pro-tip: Check your broker’s license at the TREC website.

TREC makes and enforces regulations on Professional Ethics and Conduct, Practice and Procedure, General Administration, and General Provisions. These regulations cover things like broker integrity and competency, adjudicative proceedings, certain contract disputes, issues relating to licensure requirements, and other things. We keep you updated on TREC regulations and other legal issues affecting your assets. 

Tax Code Changes That Affect Your Investments

As commercial real estate investment brokers, we stay on top of tax code changes. We do this to keep clients like you informed. At the same time, if you own a Houston commercial real estate investment, you should also be aware of tax laws and code changes.

Pro-tip: The 199A gives certain earners a 20% income tax reduction.

After the tax code changes in 2017 (known as The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act or TCJA), the rules have changed. For example, some of the Act’s changes include modifications to AMT (alternative minimum tax), carried interest, depreciation, and the corporate tax rate. Since these tax code changes may directly impact your investments, we will keep you informed about changes affecting your assets.

Accounting Best Practices For Real Estate Investors

As a real estate investor, you should know the status of your investments, your cash flow, your liabilities, and your expenses. On top of that, real estate investors need good accounting team selection practices. By following accounting best practices, investors can increase efficiency and streamline operations. We encourage you to contact your CPA more specifics. 

In comparison, poor accounting practices could make your operations more difficult and time-consuming. Not only that, but failing to track your real estate investment finances could cost you more money. In brief, we offer advice on accounting best practices for commercial real estate investment in Houston TX and other areas.  

Market Information And Trends to Guide You

Texas is our region of expertise. Because we know Houston, Dallas-Ft Worth, San Antonio, and the surrounding suburban markets, we can advise you on market trends. For instance, we can tell you where the most affordable Class A office space is in Houston. Or we can tell you where the best areas are for purchasing land in Dallas. Not only that, but we can tell you where the real growth is happening. On top of that, we can tell you which areas are hot, which areas are in decline, and where you can get the most for your investment dollars.
