LAHAINA – Reasons to own your office space at Keawe Business Center:

2) Build your equity, and not your landlord’s. Your principal payment is your equity. Let your business build your equity, and not your landlord’s.

3) Savings from depreciation deduction is yours (not your landlord’s). This represents a significant CASH savings to you.

4) No longer pay general excise tax on your rent. You don’t pay GET on your mortgage payment. This is another 4.166 percent of CASH savings to you.

5) No longer pay for future rent increases. If you’ve been a tenant for very long, you know how this adds up. Starting in year two, this is another significant CASH savings to you.

6) Your net cost after cash savings is less than rent. Your mortgage payment less the cash savings from depreciation, general excise tax and future rent increases is less than rent. No matter how you slice it, you are better off owning than renting.
