Jumping Into the NEW YEAR with NEW OPEN HOUSES!

it's nice to get out into the community. A lot of times as a Realtor, I'm busy out in the field at specific properties with clients. Last year I even had a few homes being renovated so spent a lot more time working in those capacities - that was a lot of work! However, there is something to be said in helping and meeting new people at the homes they think they might have interest and talking about a family's vision and dreams.  Once that great home is found, there's nothing better than settling back into your passions - having friends over, a great vacation, an amazing book or even a great poker game! Here's two open houses this weekend to visit. See you there!

Exploring Selling? Feeling Overwhelmed? What if You Could Be Laser Focused to Get Top Dollar?

The 80/20 rule applies to most things in life and its really not an exception when prepping your home for sale. As we are in the midst of the holiday season, we still made sure we got top dollar for our home Seller and followed the most important 20 percent keys to maintain laser focus.

In fact, this home ended up as the highest dollar per square foot sale in all of the sales in 2017 in an area of approx. 2,500 homes for similar sized properties. We ended up with 5 substantial and competitive offers to choose from. There's approximately about a month and a half of inventory (a definite Seller's Market) but it's not just the market, it's how your prep your home. There are plenty of properties during the holidays still sitting for sale within these same 2,500 homes. It's doing the most important 20 percent key things to extract that additional value from your home that makes all the difference and helps you sell your home quickly!

Want to Know What Tax Reform Looks Like for CA Homeowners? (Before the Senate Bill and Prior to Committee)

Here it is folks. . . straight from the President of the CA Association of Realtors:

(YOU DECIDE HOW THE NEW POTENTIAL RULES AFFECT FAMILY & QUALITY OF LIFE)

20151230_113249.jpg

No doubt you know that yesterday Congress introduced a tax reform bill in the House.

Among the many provisions in the Tax Cut and Job Act that will impact real estate:

  • Lowers the mortgage interest deduction cap from $1 million to $500,000 - A SMALLER NOR CAL FAMILY HOME IS AROUND 400K FOR A 3 BED 2 BATH HOME IN A QUALITY NEIGHBORHOOD. MORE SPACE NEEDS WILL DICTATE THE NEED FOR A LARGER HOME FOR PEOPLE WITH MORE KIDS OR MULTI-GENERATIONAL HOUSING REQUIREMENTS - SEE NEXT BLOG POST FOR A 430K EXAMPLE!
  • Eliminates the mortgage interest deduction on second homes
  • Homeowners would no longer be able to deduct the interest on home equity loans - HOME EQUITY LOANS ARE MANY TIMES USED TO MAKE LARGE REPAIRS AND DOING HOME IMPROVEMENTS LIKE A NEW ROOF OR DUAL PANE WINDOWS.
  • Eliminates state and local income tax deductions - CA HOMEOWNERS PAY HIGH STATE TAXES ALREADY. THE INCOME LEVELS TO HAVE A DECENT QUALITY OF LIFE AND SUPPORT FAMILIES IS MUCH HIGHER HERE THAN OTHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY.
  • Caps property tax deductions at $10,000
  • Extends the qualification period for exclusion of capital gains tax on the sale of a primary home from two out of the last five years to five out of the last eight years - THIS IS NOT GETTING MENTIONED MUCH, BUT THE FLEXIBILITY TO MOVE OUT OF A PARTICULAR AREA WITHOUT BEING TAXED AS IF ITS AN INVESTMENT PROPERTY IS IMPORTANT.  MANY OF MY FIRST TIME BUYERS WANT TO UPGRADE TO BETTER, SAFER NEIGHBORHOODS BEFORE 5 YEARS. THIS REASONING  ASSUMES MOST WANT TO STAY IN THEIR HOME FOR 5 YEARS BUT DISPROPORTIONATELY WILL AFFECT PEOPLE WITH LESS OPTIONS FINANCIALLY OR HAVE TO MOVE FOR FAMILY REASONS.

As you can imagine, these changes would remove the incentive for homeownership and unfairly hurt California homebuyers. California’s homeownership rate is already among the lowest in the nation, and we can’t afford for it to go lower.

Capping the mortgage interest deduction essentially nullifies the incentive for homeownership, thereby removing the incentive for people to buy homes. We all know that homeownership has and continues to be the best way for families to build wealth and move up the socioeconomic ladder. Congress has incentivized homeownership through the tax code for more than 100 years, and they should not change things now.

That’s why I’m asking you to get involved in C.A.R.’s and NAR’s Call for Action. Tell Congress to oppose this and any tax reform proposal that dramatically weakens the incentive for homeownership.

Share this Call to Action and use these hashtags on your social media accounts #SaveHomeOwnership and #TaxReform.

Take action here.

Sincerely,


Geoff McIntosh
2017 President
CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®

What Can We Borrow from Celebrity Homes?

Celebrities typically use some of the best designers, have plenty of money and can find or create a home with amazing architecture. There's absolutely no reason one wouldn't piggy back off this and borrow some of cool ideas from these homes. After all, these homes are unique for a reason. To be clear, I mean the ideas on space usage, the feeling of lightness and the color choices.

Jay Z and Beyonce:

They scored the most expensive home listed in Bel Air and it's 30,000 sq ft of HOME, I mean HOTEL, I mean HOME :))
