Cost Segregation San Francisco Bay Area, CA
Cost Segregation Studies
Cost Segregation is a viable cash flow enhancing tool regardless of location, but can be particularly valuable in the San Francisco Bay area.
The San Francisco Bay Area of California is the cultural, commercial and financial center of Northern California. It is the most densely populated major city in California, and second only to New York City in the entire U.S. It has a diversified service economy, focused primarily around financial services, tourism and high technology.
The density of the population creates greater demand for space (both working and living) which significantly increases rental revenue leading to potentially increased profits. Potential savings on federal taxes through depreciation identified by cost segregation becomes increasingly important in this scenario. Additional cash flow from the resulting savings will tend to offset the comparatively higher cost of materials and labor in the California market.
