Did You Acquire Property in 2022?

You may be eligible for Tax Reduction Benefits!

Homestead Exemption:

You may qualify for substantial tax savings with the homestead exemption if you are a permanent Florida resident. This exemption is not automatically applied to your new home. As the new owner, you must apply for the exemption with the Property Appraiser’s office.

Homestead exemption could save you $500 - $1,000 each year. You can't rely on current taxes as an estimate following a change in ownership as these represented the seller’s taxes. The Assessed Value of your home resets to full Market Value in the year after you acquire the property, which could result in much higher taxes. Make sure to connect with a trusted real estate professional…

A new survey conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs found a majority of Americans want to buy a home and think now is a good time to do it. In fact, a full 65 percent of respondents said they feel homeownership would be a dream come true or an accomplishment to be proud of and 72 percent said now is a good time to buy. The survey also found very few current renters who said they’d prefer to continue renting. In fact, just one in ten said they prefer renting to owning. But despite their desire to own their own home, many Americans have misconceptions about what is required to achieve that goal. For example, the survey found two-thirds of participants believed they’d need very good credit in order to qualify for a home loan and nearly half thought a good credit…

When an offer on a home has been accepted, that home's sale is considered pending. It isn't final until closing, which typically takes place a few weeks later. But, because most accepted offers result in completed sales, the National Association of Realtors tracks contract signings as an indicator of what sales should look like in the near future. In September, the NAR's Pending Home Sales Index showed a slight increase from the month before, though it's still below where it was at the same time last year. Lawrence Yun, NAR's chief economist, says the month-over-month increase is a good sign. “This shows that buyers are out there on the sidelines, waiting to jump in once more inventory becomes available and the price is right,” Yun said. In other words,…

No one wants to make big decisions hastily. It's a great way to make mistakes and end up with regrets. Which is why, in an ideal situation, home buyers would have time to consider the pros and cons of multiple houses and choose the one that best fits their needs and wishlist. Unfortunately, in a competitive market, that's not always possible. And so, buyers have to be prepared and ready to make an offer when they see a house they like. The good news is, now that inventory is beginning to rise and houses are staying on the market longer, home buyers have more time to weigh their decision. In fact, according to a recent survey, the number of buyers who made an offer on a house without seeing it first has fallen 15 percent since late last year. This is a…
