Hello Moshesh,

Very rarely would I recommend buying real estate and holding it in a corporation. There are other ways of holding real estate, including limited liability companies, that preserve the tax benefits of holding real estate and provide limited liability protection. If you have a corporation conducting an active trade or business, it's generally better to have the corporation lease the real estate from you or an entity owned by you and your family than for the corporation to own the property.

Good luck!
