Bookkeeping is an important part of owning and managing a real estate business. Keeping accurate records can help you stay organized, make informed decisions about your property, and avoid legal problems down the road.
There are a few key things to keep in mind when bookkeeping for your rental property:
- Keep track of all income and expenses . This includes rent payments, utility bills, repair and maintenance costs, and any other money that comes in or goes out related to your property.
- Organize your records. This can be as simple as creating a folder for each year of ownership, and keeping all receipts and invoices in that folder.
- Stay up to date. Don’t let your records fall behind – this will make it much harder to catch up later on.
- Know the law. There are a number of laws and regulations that apply to rental properties, so it’s important to familiarize yourself with these before getting started.
- Hire a professional — Bookkeeping can be time-consuming and confusing, so don’t hesitate to reach out for assistance if you need it.
