Effortless Cash Flow: the ABC’s of TICs (Tenant in Common properties) by Kathy Heshelow has just been published by iUniverse, Inc., one of the largest publishers in the United States. This is the first and only book published on the subject of Tenant in Common properties. The TIC industry is young and dynamic, and Heshelow is an active professional in the industry.
Effortless Cash Flow: the ABC’s of TICs is a ‘must have’ text for anyone considering real estate investments today. The TIC industry is not widely known yet billions of dollars of equity are being invested into these class A properties. Effortless Cash Flow: the ABC’s of TICs discusses why investors chose TICs, what is inherently good and bad about them, and what investors should know. TICs are, in fact, a complex weaving together of commercial real estate, securities, law and finance that form a streamlined and simplified investment of effortless cash flow. These properties are no-management, no-hassle, passive income properties of institutional grade that are pre-packaged and ready for investors.
Investors in a TIC will have a deed and percentage interest of a large institutional-grade property with all benefits of real estate ownership. Instead of owning a $50M dollar office building alone, they will be one of several owners, with the professional manager and tenants in place. TICs are not limited or general partnerships, and while there is no daily management or responsibility, investors will have rights and a say in important decisions. Effortless Cash Flow: the ABC’ s of TICs (Tenant in Common properties) will explain all aspects of the investments, good and bad, and will arm investors with knowledge to make an informed decision.
Author Kathy Heshelow is a seasoned commercial real estate broker, President of her own firm in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, and a securities licensed representative with CapWest Securities, Inc. (member NASD, SIPC, MSRB). Heshelow handles TICs on a daily basis and has advised and placed many investors. (She is also personally invested in Tenant in Common properties).
“I wrote this book because there isn’t much information or educational material to be found on TICs, yet there are so many people discovering them and wanting to invest,” says Heshelow. “TICs are not for everyone, but for the right investor, they can solve many problems and be a great choice. There is cash flow from any number of tenants in your building, but you have no management responsibility and you collect your income each month – that can be very liberating.” Heshelow also adds that “there is risk in all investments, including TICs, and Effortless Cash Flow will discuss those risks and caveats, too.” Helping an investor to become educated before jumping into a TIC investment is a priority for Heshelow.
