Tax Benefits of Home Ownership                                         U.S. taxpayers have enjoyed specific tax benefits for home ownership since personal income tax was introduced by the 16th amendment in 1913. While these benefits may not be the primary reason that motivates a person to buy a home, they are still tangible and not available to tenants.The exclusion of capital gains tax on the profit made from a home is unique from other investments and provides homeowners significant savings. Single taxpayers can exclude up to $250,000 gain and married taxpayers up to $500,000 gain. During the five-year period ending on the date of sale, a taxpayer must have: owned the home for at least two years; lived in the home as their main home for at least two years; and, ownership and use do n...

2016 Fan District Real Estate Report Well, 2016 is officially behind us!  And as we push forward into 2017, it's always a great time to take a sneak peak in our rear view mirrors to see how things shook out in 2016.  Admittiedly, I'm a data junkie so this stuff gets me pretty excited. I keep a pretty close eye the sales each week but it was especially impactful for me to lay the data next to 2015 (which was a great year as well). Another set of data point to remind us how strong the market is now. So without further ado {insert drum room} ....Here is snap shot of 2016 Sales in the Fan District (for single family homes), as well as how 2016 stacked up to 2015:*only includes sales from CVRMLS  HIGHLIGHTS of 2016 FAN DISTRICT REAL ESTATE:- Average Sales Price INCREASED $46,000 / 8+%, in 20...
