How Should You Price Your Home in 2019?

When we go to look at a home and give a seller a price, we take our time to do our due diligence and look at all the recent comparable sales. This ensures we’re comparing apples to apples and the homes we’re using are as identical to yours as possible.



We look back at the numbers within the last three to six months, specifically the closed sales figures. This is what the appraiser will see, so you want to make sure you’re pricing the home for what it's worth.



Next, we’ll look at pending sales because that’s a key indicator of where the market is headed. For example, if all the homes are selling for $400,000 but there are a bunch of pending sales at $415,000, that could be an indicator that the market is trending slightly upward.



Then we’re going to look at the active sales in your neighborhood, aka the competition that’s on the market right now. When buyers are coming into your house, there’s a very good chance t ...

How Homestead Portability Helps You Save

Homestead portability will save you a lot in property taxes. Here’s what you need to know.
 


Homestead portability is part of Florida’s 1992 Save Our Homes amendment. This portability lets you carry over the lower tax base of your current homesteaded property to the next one. Here’s an example.


I have a client who bought a home in Coral Springs in 1991 for $120,000. It’s on the market today for $380,000, and their current tax is around $3,000 a year. When they sell, they’re going to move to a cheaper property that costs around $250,000. They’ll be able to use the tax break from the homestead exemption on their new property; the taxes will go down to $1,600 a year.


If they didn’t have portability, they would’ve had higher taxes for the last 20 years they owned the property. In addition, the taxes on the new property would be $3,600 per year. It’s a substantial tax savings that accumulates over the years. ...
