Why make a rental investment?

Investing in rental property offers many advantages, while receiving additional income:

  • This investment guarantees you an annual rental income that allows you to supplement your retirement

  • Obtaining real estate
  • Finance a loan through the rents collected to make other real estate investments in the rental
  • The tax reduction

Often, rental management is attractive over the long term; whether it is a furnished rental or not, for small or large surfaces.

The real estate market has the tax benefit of tax reduction; in particular thanks to the conditions of the Pinel Law replacing the Duflot law, the most widely used tax-exempt investment.

How to choose your rental investment?

As said before, rental investment targets real estate that is intended to be rented out to third parties. The interest is to improve its land income, by benefiting from tax reductions, among these devices, there are:

The pinel law

The Pinel system gives buyers the opportunity to obtain a tax reduction:

  • A 12% tax reduction on the amount of the investment over 6 years
  • A tax reduction of 18% on the amount of the investment over 9 years
  • A 21% tax reduction on the amount of the investment over 12 years

This system also allows you to acquire a maximum of two real estate assets per year up to the limit of 300,000 us dollars.

The Censi-Bouvard device

This device allows tax reduction if the investment is made in a student residence, EPHAD, etc.

This device can be combined with the LMNP status if the acquirer so wishes.

LMNP / LMP statutes

Purchasers who benefit from the Leaseeurs en Meublé Non Professionnel / Rented Furnished Professionally (LMNP / LMP) status will benefit from tax advantages on rental income. All of these land charges are deducted with this status on your taxes. Your next heirs can also obtain these rights.

What are the costs of a rental investment?

A rental investment is certainly profitable over time if it is managed correctly, but be careful to take into account the financial constraints associated with it. These charges can come from:

  • Maintenance of the property
  • Work to be done in the accommodation
  • The different management fees
  • Taxes

When all these costs are taken into account, the profitability of a rental investment is reduced.

The owner of a rental property has a property deficit when the charges he bears (repair costs, maintenance costs, property tax, etc.) are greater than the remuneration he receives.

What precautions should be taken before making a rental investment?

Carry out a careful study of your future rental acquisition

The precautions that must be taken before making a rental investment are its location (town center, public transport, shops, etc.) and the quality of the property (new, old with or without work).
