It is not a cookie cutter one price fits all process. The return on investment typically falls between 10:1 and 20:1. Before you decide to start the cost segregation study, you will be provided with a return-on- investment estimate. A company such as Cost Segregation Services, LLC (CSSI) can provide you with a complimentary analysis, a Net Present Value Schedule, and other materials to help you determine your value in doing a study. It has to be right for you!

Isn’t it better to get to use the full value now? QUESTIONS TO ILLUSTRATE THE TIME VALUE OF MONEY:
