The advantages of starting an LLC company

When you are starting a new company it can be a daunting prospect to face so many different choices. It can be an overwhelming feeling to be faced with several business structure options. It is important that you conduct adequate research before making any big decisions in relation to your business. Here are some reasons why starting an LLC company could be a great choice for you.

Multiple owners

Estate planning for companies: Do you have a buy-sell agreement?

The owners of successful businesses in Florida need to set up a plan for their businesses that will go into effect when they die. A buy-sell agreement will be an important part of this plan.

The buy-sell agreement creates a way to redistribute the interests of an owner if he or she becomes incapacitated or dies. An agreement like this will also work in the event that the business owner gets divorced or declares bankruptcy.

An essential estate planning checklist

Planning your estate can be an overwhelming process. There are many aspects to ensuring that you have everything in order, and you will want to feel confident that there will be no complications in passing on your wealth over to your heirs. In planning your estate effectively, you should also prepare for any imaginable scenario, including becoming incapacitated during your lifetime due to ill health.

The following is a list of the most important elements that you should include in your estate plan.

Solving tenant and landlord disputes easily

When you are renting a property from a landlord, or when you are leasing your property to a tenant, it is important to have a professional relationship.

On paper, this sounds quite simple: Signing a contract together should create black and white guidelines for you both to follow. However, there can be times when you disagree on things in the contract or about issues that have not been specified in the contract. In these times, it's important to act carefully. The following are some of the most frequently asked questions about landlord and tenant disputes.

Critical considerations when going through a merger

If you or your company is interested in buying another company with the intention to merge both entities, there are many considerations that need to be taken into account. The most common reason for a merger is because it creates the opportunity to increase revenue while at the same time making the overhead costs more efficient.

Mergers can lead to substantially increased profits for a company, however this increase can take years. In the short-term, a merger is likely to disrupt office culture and create a great deal of chaos while the changes are being made. When it comes to buying in relation to a merger, there are even more considerations for the buyer.

Getting the most out of real estate agents

The real estate hustle can be a daunting prospect for any buyer. Although you might be an expert in the inner workings of your own industry or profession, the problem is that the real estate industry is most likely an entirely different ballgame. There is a certain unwritten code of conduct that must be obeyed when dealing with real estate agents and brokers that should be learned.

Agents almost always work for commission

What are the types of construction defects?

For many people, a home is more than just a structure: It is a place to relax, have fun and make memories. But for those who own homes that have construction defects, home can be much more of a headache.

A construction defect is generally a deficiency in the design, planning, or construction of a home or building. If the home was constructed in a way that fails to perform in the manner intended by the buyer, or if the home was not built in a workmanlike manner, the result could be a serious construction defect.

Florida real estate slows due to Hurricane Irma

The Florida housing market is still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Irma. It seems that the hurricane caused more than just physical destruction: It also wreaked havoc on real estate transactions.

The market was affected particularly negatively in South Florida, where according to the findings of local Realtor boards the closings for existing single-family homes dropped by 31 percent. The combined closings for Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade counties fell from 3,964 deals in September 2016 to 2,735 deals this year. The number of closing sales on townhouses and condos in the tri-county area also significantly declined.

Avoid these mistakes in your new business

Every year, thousands of new businesses are created, but not all of them will survive. The Small Business Administration estimates that only 50 percent of new businesses will succeed past their first five years. This statistic might seem daunting, but savvy business owners should not be discouraged.

If you are starting a new business, you have probably already encountered some of its many challenges. Fortunately, there are several measures that new business owners can take in order to increase their chances of success.
