Opportunity Zone Investing Simplified

Opportunity Zone Investing has enormous tax advantages but unfortunately, too few real estate investors are capitalizing on this incredible incentive! Why? It's been around for more than 2 years. What's the hold up? One major reason is so few actually understand how it works or how they can apply it to their personal investment plans. The following will simplify Opportunity Zone Investing for you so that you can begin getting this gigantic tax break for yourself. And I am purposely NOT going to go into every little nuance. If you want complication, just read the IRS Opportunity Zone Publication on the matter. And by the way, I own real estate in Qualified Opportunity Zones, so I practice exactly what I preach. But I do have to give the following lame disclosure before I start... that I am not giving you tax or legal advice in this training because I am not an attorney or a CPA. Before attempting the following, consult your tax advisor.

    Hey Phil, Your book was the first one I bought, now I’ve got 3 rental under my belt! Thanks for the help and advice in your book and also in your vids…

    my question: i took a look at the map and I see that the legend shows not only “opportunity zones” but also “NMTC qualified tracts”. Does that type of designation also qualify for some tax benefits as well? I couldn’t tell from the link i was sent to.

    The last house I have done a BRRR appears to be in one of these NMTC qualified tract areas! Thanks so much for all your great content, your sense of humor, and your energy!

  6. Hello Phil, while I am not new to real estate investment, I learned a valuable lesson during the 08 market crash. I crashed along with it and had to go bankrupt. My question is that I have some funds to invest now and what would be your guidance to obtaining my first property. If there is anything you can recommend what would it be? Like your videos very informative. By the way, my market right now is in Fort Pierce Fl, this is where I want to start
