From My September Newsletter



What Sells a House In Today's Markets
In today's market many sellers want to know the secret to selling their homes quickly. They want to know ways to hold on to the equity they've build over the past decade.
Unfortunately, there is no golden equation that equals the perfect sale. Yet, while there is no "sure thing" in the housing market these days, there are certain factors that affect how quickly and for how much your home sells.
Here are the top ten. Consider how these apply to your own home, how that affects marketing, as well as what aspects of your home you should "play up" to elicit a better response from buyers.

1. Price: It's a common misconception that location is the leading factor of whether or not a home sells. It is, instead, price. Think about this scenario. You have a home located in a prestigious and sought-after neighborhood, yet the list price is tens of thousands of dollars over the comps for the area. No one will be interested. This same property priced just below the competition will fly off the market.

2. Location: Okay, location is still important. A home that sits next to a refinery, crime-ridden neighborhood, or busy street is less desirable than one that backs up to green space. If your home has a boastable location, then by all means boast about it in your marketing.

3. Liveability: This is fast becoming a hot button word in real estate. Buyers today are looking for neighborhoods that deliver amenities such as golf parks, restaurants, theaters. They want good schools, walkable neighborhoods, and plenty of things to keep them entertained.

4. Condition: There is a certain segment of the market that is made up of renovators, flippers, and investors. You won't find as many people these days eager to buy your run-down property that is in a good location. They simply can't sell the property fast enough before monthly mortgage payments begin eating up their profit. Homes that are well-maintained or in move-in ready condition appeal to a broader range of buyers. Even simple fixes, such as new paint, cleaned carpets, or power-washed decks, can have an effect.

5. Competitive Advantage: Don't make the mistake of assuming that you're in this race alone. Past area sales, as well as current listings and foreclosures, are your direct competition. You must take these into consideration when settling on a list price for your home. What amenities and upgrades do these homes have? Do the homes in your neighborhood all have updated baths, kitchens, or landscaped yards? In order to price in line with them you must be able to boast these same things.

6. Curb Appeal: Curb appeal is the first impression of the home world. You must keep the yard orderly and maintained when your home is on the market.

7. Staging: Once inside your home, a buyer must be wowed. Intoxicate their senses. They want to see up-to-date furnishings, smell a clean home, touch cabinets that are in good repair, hear peace and quiet, and of course "taste the good life."

8. Kitchens: A kitchen sells a house. It is where families gather and connect. Minor kitchen remodels rank high among the list of top remodeling projects, with owners updating cabinets, counters, and floors. Nobody wants an outdated kitchen. What fixes are in your budget? If your kitchen is already spectacular, be sure you play this up in any marketing.

9. Agents: An accomplished, knowledgeable agent can be your biggest ally during the selling process. They know the latest market trends and have built a network of agents and contacts to whom to market your home. With an arsenal of marketing tools available to agents today, from video tours and webcasts to brochures, websites, and mls listings, they are part of your selling team

10. Marketing: Marketing has gone global. With the power of the Internet, you can showcase your home to millions of potential buyers. Sit down with your agent and develop a solid marketing plan. This is why you are paying them a commission. Make them earn it!
The market is not what it once was. You must be realistic about what selling in today's market means. You value your home, but it may not be "worth" as much today as it was yesterday, last month, or last year. Consider these top ten ways a home sells and help your home put it's best face forward.

12 Tax Season Tips For Home Owners

  12 Tax Season Tips for Home Owners

March 10, 2011

Owning your own home opens the door to many tax opportunities. CCH, a Wolters Kluwer tax information company, suggests these 12 ways to save on your tax return:

If you bought a home last year, you may benefit from a refundable first-time home buyers’ credit of 10% of the purchase price of a new home—up to $8,000. The credit is available for homes purchased before October 1, 2010 and you must have entered into a binding agreement to buy the home before May 1, 2010. You can’t have had an ownership interest in a principal residence during the three years before the purchase.

A refundable repeat home buyers’ credit is available is you entered a contract to buy a home by April 30, 2010 and closed on the sale of the home before October 1, 2010. The credit is 10% of the purchase price with a limit of $6,500. To claim the credit, you have to have owned and used the same home as a principal residence for five straight years within a time period that may go back a maximum of eight years. You also must be at least 18 years old and your home purchase price must be under $800,000.

You can exclude up to $250,000 of gain on the sale of your home (up to $500,000 for joint filers) if you have owned and lived in the home as your principal residence for two out of the five years prior to the sale, although a partial exclusion may be available for sales due to a change of employment, health, or unforeseen circumstances. The periods of ownership and occupancy do not have to be identical.

You can take the interest on your mortgage indebtedness of up to $1 million as an itemized deduction. The interest can be on your principal residence and one additional residence.


For ordinary income purposes, up to $100,000 in home-equity loan interest can also be deducted. In regards to the alternative minimum tax, interest on home-equity loans is deductible only if the loan is used to acquire, build, or substantially improve a home.

The points you paid on a mortgage loan you used to buy or improve your principal residence are deductible in the year you paid them, as long as the points represent a customary practice in your area. Points paid on a refinancing loan must be deducted over the term of the loan.

Through 2010, you can deduct mortgage insurance premiums as mortgage interest. However, the mortgage insurance had to be originally acquired on or after January 1, 2007.

You can take the state and local property taxes you pay as an itemized deduction. An option to take up to $500 ($1,000 for joint filers) as an additional standard deduction for real estate taxes expired at the end of 2009 and is not available for 2010.

If you rented your home for fewer than 15 days during the year, you don’t have to include that rental income in your gross income, but you can’t deduct any expenses related to the rental either.

If your lender forgave your mortgage debt of up to $2 million on your principal residence, as in a write-down or foreclosure, the transaction won’t be treated as “cancellation of debt income.” This special relief is temporary and is available for six years, retroactively for taxpayers filing amended returns, from January 1, 2007 through the end of 2011.


If you own a home and installed qualifying energy-efficient fixtures or systems by December 31, 2010, you may claim a 30% tax credit—up to a maximum of $1,500 for both the 2009 and 2010 tax years. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 created energy tax credits for installing insulation, energy-efficient exterior windows or doors, heat pumps, furnaces, central air conditioners, or water pumps.

A separate 30% credit is available to home owners who installed alternative energy equipment such as fuel cells, solar water heaters, solar electric equipment, small wind energy projects, or geothermal heat pumps. Although the tax credit is more likely to apply for businesses, it’s also available for home owners.

A new-hires tax credit can give employers a break on their payroll tax if they hired new workers into new job slots between Feb. 3, and Dec. 31, 2010. These workers can’t have replaced people who left. They have to add to your headcount. And they have to have been unemployed for 60 or more days prior to you hiring them.

If your business qualified for this deduction, which amounts to 6.2% of your payroll tax, you should have taken from your quarterly payroll tax estimates during 2010. But if you missed it, it’s worth going back and amending those quarterly payments to account for the credit, says Jeff Anderson, a partner who works with entrepreneurs at Padgett Stratemann, an accounting firm based in Austin, Texas.


What's more, an additional $1,000 general business tax credit may be available in 2011 if you keep these new employees for 52 weeks or longer. So if you qualified for the first credit, make sure you qualify for the second one as well, says Stan Ginsberg, a partner in New York with the accounting firm Metis Group.

Internal Revenue Service refers to as “listed property,” such as laptops or cars that might be purchased for work or provided by an employer but that lend themselves to personal use. Users had to keep track of their business and personal use for these items and write off the former proportionally.


2. Cell-phone users

Mobile phones used to be counted among items the Internal Revenue SThe IRS has removed cell phones from this onerous list, which means that if you provide employees with cell phones or use one for business yourself, “Your business can write it off directly,” says Anderson.


3. Large sport-utility vehicle buyers

This is a great break for entrepreneurs who need an SUV that’s heavier than 6,000 pounds for their business, such as a Chevy Tahoe or Ford Explorer. If you bought or plan to buy a new one between Sept. 8, 2010, and Dec., 31, 2011, you may be able write off the full value in a single tax year, rather than having to depreciate it over a few years, as has been the case previously.


This is a loophole for a lot of taxpayers,” says Anderson.


If you really do need this kind of horsepower, this credit could go a long way toward defraying the cost of owning one of these gas guzzlers.


4. New-equipment buyers

In a bid to get business owners to open the till and spend a little, the IRS is offering “bonus depreciation,” which is the temporary ability to write off more equipment in a bigger way.


If a business bought or buys new equipment between Sept. 8, 2010, and Dec. 31, 2011, it may be able to write off 100% of the cost all at once. We’re talking big items like computers, office furniture and manufacturing equipment. “This was enacted to help manufacturers and help to spark the economy,” Anderson says. For this reason, the items have to be purchased new, not used, and put into use during that same period.
etter still, the write-off has no limits on how much you spend and isn’t capped by your taxable income, as is the case with the write-off rule this one temporarily supersedes, says Anderson.

To qualify, a business must have fewer than the equivalent of 25 full-time workers. So, for example, you could have 50 part-time workers. The average annual salary across your employees can’t top $50,000, and you must be covering more than half of your workers' health-care costs.


The credit will rise to 50% in 2014, but it will also phase out for employers who pay an average annual employee wage between $25,000 and $50,000. “It’s meant to give a tax credit to business owners who provide health insurance to lower-wage workers,” says Ginsburg, “But it’s too onerous to qualify for it. It isn't going to get a lot of play [in places where wages are high].”


Even so, with the number of new tax breaks this year, many entrepreneurs are likely to find at least one that could come in handy this spring.

Have you been wondering if now is the time to purchase your first home? Your first vacation home at the shore? Wondering if the shore market has hit bottom?



Have you been wondering if now is the time to purchase your first home? Your first vacation home at the shore? Wondering if the shore market has hit bottom?


The Wall Street Journal last week stated:


“With home sales starting to improve, and with prices now possibly forming a bottom, real estate could well be the asset class that represents the best low-risk buying opportunity out there today.”


Donald Trump was just quoted saying:
“I’m pretty sure this is a great time to go out and buy a house. And if you do, in 10 years you’re going to look back and say, ‘You know, I‘m glad I listened to Donald Trump’.”



John Paulson, a multibillionaire hedge fund operator and the investment genius who made a killing betting against housing a few years ago, is now bullish on residential real estate market. He recently said: “If you don’t own a home, buy one. If you own one home, buy another one. If you own two homes, buy a third. And, lend your relatives the money to buy a home.”

A recent Gallup Poll showed that 67% of American’s think that now is a ‘good time’ to buy a home. The Gallup Organization went on to say:“Overall, there is good reason for most Americans to think now is a good time to buy a house. Interest rates remain near historic lows. Home prices are down sharply, providing many incredible buys.”


The iconic financial paper in this country, this country’s most famous real estate investor, and the most successful prognosticator of the housing market and 2/3 of all Americans say now is the time to buy a home.
