The Importance of Categorizing Your Transactions
Real estate investors need to track various income and expense categories to effectively manage their investments. On the income side, they should monitor rental income, which includes base rent, late fees, and any additional income sources like parking fees or laundry facilities. Additionally, investors should track any income from property appreciation or resale. On the expense side, key categories include property management fees, maintenance and repairs, property taxes, insurance premiums, utilities, mortgage or loan payments, legal and accounting fees, and advertising/marketing expenses. Properly categorizing and monitoring these income and expense items is essential for maintaining financial clarity, optimizing profitability, and ensuring the overall success of their real estate investments.
