Portfolio Level Expenses

Portfolio Level Expenses

Some expenses or transactions do not apply to just one property, but to your entire portfolio.  Sometimes called overhead, these transactions are referred to as Portfolio level expenses in REI Hub.  Any transaction can be booked to the Portfolio level, but it is generally most applicable for expenses.  Examples include your REI Hub subscription, real estate investor education expenses, and paying your real estate related CPA or tax preparation costs.
