The Market Needs Your Listing

by Ashlie DuCros

Thinking About Selling?

If you are debating putting your home on the market, NOW is the time.

The inventory of homes for sale is well below norms and historically, inventory increases dramatically as we approach summer. 

Selling NOW while demand is high and supply is low may garner you a quick sale for a really good price.

The number of buyers ready and willing to make a purchase is at the highest level in years so sellers hold a major negotiating advantage.

If you thought about selling your house this year, now is the time to do it!

What’s the highest price that your home could sell for?

Price Appreciation = Good News For Homeowners

Home Equity: You May Have More Than You Think

A recent study by Fannie Mae suggests that many homeowners are unaware that their equity position has changed…in some cases dramatically. 

The study revealed that only 37% of Americans believe that they have “significant equity” (greater than 20%), when in actuality, 74% do!

This means that 37% of Americans with a mortgage fail to realize the opportune situation they are in. With a sizeable equity position, many homeowners could easily move into a housing situation that better meets their current needs (moving to a larger home or downsizing).

If you are one of the many homeowners who is unsure of how much equity you have in your home and are curious about your ability to move, contact me today so I can help evaluate your situation and assist you along the way!

Tax Break for Seniors

by Ashlie DuCros

Are you:

  • 55+ years old?
  • Looking to “move down” to a smaller residence?
  • Hesitant to move because of increasing property taxes?

 Then Proposition 60 Can Offer You Relief!

 

  • If you live in California and are over the age of 55, you can effectively reduce your property taxes when buying a new home. 
     
  • Proposition 60 allows you to transfer your current property’s assessed value into a new replacement property. In other words, you would be able to buy a new property, yet still pay the same property taxes you pay on your current property.
     
  • You can even transfer your base tax value from one county to another (Prop 90).
     
  • You only have a limited time for transferring your low tax base to your next home.
