This post is about the wisdom of purchasing a “new build” short term rental, which is a building that was expressly built for the purpose of serving as a short term rental.

This week, I wrote up what I consider to be one of the best introductions on the internet about the short term rental regulations in Palm Springs. It’s not meant to be comprehensive, because the regulations are very numerous, but it’ll give you an excellent picture of what it would take to own a vacation rental in the city.

I should have written this prior to opening up Lux Life Palm Springs, because it would honestly have saved me a ton of grief. I was just a little busy at the time, though, juggling the operations of the short term rental business with our move to Memphis. Hindsight is 20/20, as they say.

In this post, Jordan Frey, MD, dissects a common reason why physicians and other high income professionals like to invest in real estate: it’s a great tax shelter. Although it’s far from the tax haven that it was in the 1980s, tax deductions and tax efficiency are some of the reasons why I decided to become a real estate investor.

But are tax benefits by themselves enough reason to justify becoming a real estate investor? I would argue the answer is NO, and I have a feeling that Dr. Frey agrees with me.
