Rental property is typically depreciated using a straight line over 27.5 years.
It's better to separate property assets by class life and segment the deductions - this will accelerate depreciation deductions - and for most investors, money now is more valueable than money later.
Do investors typically do this?
If they don't, why do you think that is?
Is it a hassle? Does it cost too much? Do they simply not know? Are they afraid?
I'm curious to hear what people have to say....
