    Corporation for Rental Property

    branjo_70 Wayfarer

      I'm starting to buy rental property and want to form a C Corporation to hold the real estate and pay the associated expenses.  I'm not interested in flow through entities, as my intent is to accumulate profits in the corporation and use the funds to invest in additional properties with the ultimate goal of building retirement income.  I'm at least 15 years from retirement, so I think this strategy is best for me.  Anyway, I'm wondering if I should create a subsidiary entity for each property in order to protect each investment property individually.  Is this a good idea, or am I being overly cautious?  Since this will be supplemental retirement income, I would really like to have the best protection possible for my investments.  If I do create subsidiaries within the C Corp, would LLC's be a wiser choice?
