INCORPORATE YOUR LLC TO INVEST IN REAL ESTATE IN THE U.S.

What is an LLC?

An LLC (Limited Liability Company) is a legal entity that combines the characteristics of a corporation and a partnership. Like a corporation, an LLC offers limited liability protection to its members, meaning that the members are not personally liable for the debts and obligations of the company. At the same time, an LLC offers the flexibility of a partnership, which means that the income and losses of the business are passed through to the members and taxed on their personal tax returns.
