Location:

Description:
Instructor: Ricardo Bueno, National Trainer. Every year real estate agents and brokers continue to spend tens of millions of dollars to secure leads from the major real estate portals. But a recent study from the National Association of REALTORS® showed that an agent's best lead is from their own sphere of influence. If you're a real estate professional, then you want to generate quality leads and convert those into sales. The best way to do that is through a strategic combination of online marketing and social media. Registration is required.
 

Tax Issues Faced by Foreign Purchasers and Sellers of Real Estate
Tuesday, February 28, 9:00AM - 10:30AM
Cost: AAR Members: Free*; Non-Members: $15
Location:
AAR Building
Description:
Instructor: Michael W. Brooks, Esq., President, Domestic and International Real Estate Closing Tax Services (DIRECTS). Join us to learn how a little knowledge can help you obtain and retain foreign clients. Up to 8% of California real estate transactions involve non-United States parties. Non-US parties face special tax considerations when they purchase US real estate, when they sell US real estate, and even when they earn rental income from US real estate. When a foreign person sells US real estate, they are subject to up front "withholding taxes" at the time of sale. But these withholding taxes are really more like refundable security deposits, and a good REALTOR can alert their foreign client both as to the existence of the non-US seller withholding taxes, and, more importantly, how their client can obtain a quick refund. Registration is required.
