5 Things Your Accountant Wishes You Knew About Owning a Home

What’s not to love about tax season? The chill you get when you realize you owe the IRS thousands, the fear that you may be getting a bit too aggressive on your deductions, the fleeting hope you’re due for a big return … that’s dashed when you end up with $2…

OK, so maybe only accountants love tax season. And here’s another thing they love: wielding their vast knowledge of the tax code to help their clients save cash! Lots of it! If you own a home, there’s plenty they can do to ease the burden of what you owe.

Of course, if you haven’t hired an accountant to do your taxes already, you may not be able to talk to one until sometime after April 15, when they dig out from under their mountain of returns. Still, we know a few people, so we went ahead and nagged them for their prime pearls of wisdom. Check them out!

1. Having a home office does not automatically trigger an audit

Few things scare the pants off taxpayers (or accountants, for that matter) like the threat of an audit. Can you imagine pulling together all those receipts? As a result, many people avoid making claims on their taxes that they think will attract unwanted attention from the IRS. Among the most notorious of these supposed red flags is the home office deduction. Why tempt fate?

Yet accountants insist that having a home office does not automatically make you audit material. They also contend that avoiding this deduction, if you deserve it, is a huge mistake—particularly since it allows you to also deduct portions of your utilities, maintenance, and other expenses, dramatically lowering your tax burden. In short, you could save big.

“What drives me crazy is when people don’t take a home office deduction when it’s so easy to do and when they are entitled to it,” says Tom Wheelwright, a CPA and founder ofProVision Wealth Strategists.

To avoid missing out, know the rules. To determine if a home office is deductible, make sure it is an area of the home you exclusively use for business, and that it is your principal place of business (that means you don’t have a second office supplied by your company). Note: In the eyes of the IRS, everything in a home office area needs to be justified as serving a business need. Ditch the PS2 and the lava lamps.

2. Moving is an overlooked money saver

Another easy tax break that homeowners often toss out the window is the cost of a job-related move.

“People never save the receipt,” complains Craig McCullough, a Realtor® and accountant in Washington, DC. And that’s a missed opportunity, since moving fees can be hefty and are usually deductible.

A few caveats: You qualify only if you’ve moved more than 50 miles for your job (or to a new job) and work full-time for at least 39 weeks of the subsequent year. Plus, if your job pays for moving expenses, the reimbursed costs are not tax-deductible.

3. Selling a home too quickly comes at a price

Selling a house comes with its own set of pitfalls—especially if you’re doing so less than two years after purchase.

“You have to be really careful, because if you live in a house for less than two years that’s appreciated in value, the profit of the sale is subject to capital gains taxes,” McCullough says.

So, say you purchase a home in downtown Denver that appreciates nearly 20% over almost two years (totally possible, according to current home pricing trends). If you buy at $200,000 and sell at $240,000, you’ll be subject to capital gains taxes on that $40,000.

“It’s one of the biggest things sellers don’t know about,” he says. “Sellers end up calling their brokerage really mad when they get their capital gains bill.”

4. Deducting your mortgage interest is really worth it

Odds are you’ve heard that you can deduct the interest you pay on your mortgage from your taxes. And maybe you’ve thought, “Why bother? My interest is only 4%, which is a measly amount to deduct.” But here’s what you’re missing: For fixed-rate mortgages, the amount of money you pay per month may stay the same, but the proportion paid to interest changes a lot. In fact, in the early years of a mortgage, “the bulk of that check goes toward interest,” says Elmwood, WI, accountant Martha Hartung.

To find out how much of your mortgage payment is going toward interest, check your monthly statement for a breakdown. But whatever you do, don’t assume it’s too small to be worth mentioning on your taxes. And it’s not just mortgage interest that can help you out come April: If you refinanced your home or received a home equity loan or line of credit, you can deduct interest on up to $100,000 of that debt.

5. Home improvements can lower your tax bill, too

If you’ve made any significant renovations to your home in the past year—or plan to begin a new construction project—make sure to keep an eye on any energy-efficient upgrades you make. You can get a tax credit for improvements such as energy-efficient windows, reflective roofs, and extra insulation, so be sure to talk to your tax accountant about them. While there is a $500 cap on the credit, keep in mind a tax credit directly reduces the amount you owe, compared with a deduction, which simply reduces your taxable income. So this is not something you want to pass up. Trust us.

Selling Your Home? Better Make Sure It’s Clean Before Moving Out

Angela Colley of Realtor.com reminds sellers that it is important to leave your home clean and empty for your new buyers. My favorite piece of advice is “Take everything with you.”


 

Selling Your Home? Better Make Sure It’s Clean Before Moving Out

By

Let’s face it: Now that you’ve found a buyer and scheduled the closing, you’re ready to be done with your old home. A clean break! The last thing you want to do is spend the weekend deep cleaning the place for someone else to enjoy. Besides, would it even matter?

Actually, yes, it does matter.

We feel for you—the temptation to skip out on those last few cleaning chores is strong. But don’t give in. How dirty you leave your home isn’t just about etiquette—it could also cause problems with the sale of your home.

While buyers may forgive you if you forget to sweep under the stove, more serious offenses can have serious consequences. Check your contract: Some sellers may stipulate that the place be spotless by the time they move in. If you agree to this (verbally or in writing) and don’t live up to your end of the bargain, you could be at risk for a lawsuit.

So if you leave a pile of filth, the new owner could delay closing—or even bail on the sale altogether.

“In a rare case I had someone walk away from the sale because of the condition of the home at the final walk-through,” says Darbi McGlone, a Realtor® in Baton Rouge, LA.

Odds are your buyer will be incredibly stressed out by closing day, and you don’t want to make matters any worse.

“It could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back,” McGlone says.

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s bust out the yellow rubber gloves and get to work.

Work from the top down

When it comes to cleaning, starting early is easiest.

“I recommend doing a good scrubbing and decluttering before putting the house on the market—it can be very stressful to do at the last minute,” says Wendy Wrzos, certified interior redesign specialist and founder of The Blue Giraffe, a home staging and redesign company in New Jersey.

But if you didn’t start early, don’t panic. If you attack the job with a plan, it’ll get done faster. Try to clean room by room, working from the top down.

Dust the ceiling fans, wipe down the walls, and then sweep, vacuum, or mop. Clean the refrigerator (if it’s staying behind), and give a once-over to the oven and stove—including the drip pans. Check the air vents for filth or mold—and if you spot any, call in a professional. This won’t be a standard broom cleaning.

Once you’re done with one space, move on to the next. And don’t forget the details.

“Light fixtures are rarely cleaned,” McGlone says. “Wiping down cabinets and drawers inside and out would be nice also—not many sellers ever do it.​”

Take a deep breath

Cleanliness isn’t the only thing you have to worry about before the final walk-through.

“The first thing buyers always notice when they walk inside is if your home has any less-than-appealing smells, whether it is cat litter, a wet dog, garbage, or the fish you cooked two nights ago for dinner,” Wrzos says.

Reality check: Any strange odors—even if temporary—will make the buyers think the home is dirty. (And they may be right.)

Even if you’ve already moved out, go back into the home for a quick sniff before the walk-through. Bring a friend who might not be as nose-blind to your old home as you are, and ask for an honest opinion.

Air fresheners can minimize lingering odors, of course, but you can also try theseinnovative tips and tricks. When all else fails, call in a deodorization pro. Yes, they exist.

Take everything with you

Many sellers leave behind personal items, because either they think the new owner may get use out of them or they just don’t want to deal with them. But here’s the thing: “No one wants your old shower curtain and matching trash can,” McGlone says.

Unless the buyer specifically asked for something, take everything with you. Double-check attics, basements, storage closets, and the garage for anything you might have missed.

New Construction in Summit County

New Construction in Summit County

Summit Sky Ranch Site Plan

A lot of people are interested in buying new construction in Summit County, however, there are only a few projects that are currently available.  Silverthorne has the most new developments at the moment including Angler Mountain Ranch, Summit Sky Ranch and Rivers Edge.

Each builder is different so it’s important to understand what is included in the building and what is an upgrade.  Many of these builders offer great standard packages, but when you are building your own home, you tend to want to make everything perfect so you can expect to come across things you will want to upgrade.

Many builders will not negotiate on price, however, sometimes you can negotiate upgrades into the purchase price. This is where having an experienced Realtor can help in setting up the contract.

In Keystone, the new construction developments include the Townhomes At The Alders and Dercum’s Dash.  In Breckenridge, you have The Shores, Water House on Main and Corkscew Flats.  All of these new construction developments will command a premium price, but the work will be done for you and you will have your dream retreat in the Mountains!

For information or showings of any of the above new construction please contact me!

So You Wanna Buy a House? Step 8: Ace the Inspection

Inspections can be a big hurdle in buying or selling a home. Jamie Wiebe from Realtor.com explains how to “Ace the Inspection.” Here in Summit County I can recommend great inspectors and handymen for anything that may arise from the inspection. You can contact me here.


So You Wanna Buy a House? Step 8: Ace the Inspection

By

A home inspection can be a terrifying process to newbie buyers: What if the house you adore has major problems hiding beneath that shiny new coat of paint? If you lie awake haunted by visions of mold or “foundation issues,” it’s time to take a deep breath. This installment of our weekly 2016 Home-Buying Guide illuminates everything you need to know about home inspections, and how (as scary as they might seem) they exist to protect you from a very bad deal.

Here are some insights into how to make the most of this all-important step. OK, exhale.

Hire a top-notch inspector

While it may be tempting to hire any run-of-the-mill home inspector to get the job done—particularly if the price is right—the inspection is no time to cut corners. After all, buying a home is an enormous investment. “Everyone does themselves a disservice when they shop by price alone,” says Alan Singer of Sterling Home Inspections in Armonk, NY. “Plenty of inspectors don’t know what they’re doing and set up shop because it’s easy to do.”

So, first, check your local requirements: Many states require an inspector to have a license or insurance, and not having either is a big, waving red flag. Even if insurance is not mandated, you’re better off choosing an inspector who is insured, which protects both of you against errors and omissions. Membership in a professional trade organization, such as the National Association of Home Inspectors, indicate the inspector is up-to-date on the latest developments in the field—another giant plus.

Attend the inspection

Even though you will receive a written report after the inspection, you should attend the inspection while it’s being done. It provides a valuable opportunity to learn all about the inner workings of your would-be new home. “I much prefer it when buyers are there so we can discuss the home in person,” Singer says. “It’s much easier to explain the ramifications of an issue when we’re standing in front of it.” Plus, it sure beats deciphering a 10-page report about HVAC or plumbing problems.

So, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Really stick your nose into the inspection. You and your inspector will be looking at all sorts of things you might have skipped during your showings, like the attic and crawl space, and under the sinks. Don’t be scared to delve into the details. Even the best home will receive a laundry list of to-do’s and potential problems, and fixing them will be much easier with a hands-on understanding of the issues involved. Consider it free (and invaluable) fix-it advice.

Don’t panic (until it’s time to panic)

The vast majority of issues raised during an inspection are reparable—after all, as Singer describes it, you’re buying a “used home.” Just like a used car or an old computer or second-hand clothing, there are bound to be problems. Some of them may be small and easily fixed, like leaky pipes and rattling doorknobs. But if an inspector discovers a majorproblem—with, say, the foundation or water intrusion—even that may not be a deal killer. In fact, it could be a bargaining chip you can discuss with the sellers before closing the deal.

Work with your real estate attorney and agent to determine the best approach. If your offer was contingent on a successful inspection (and most are), you have a good basis to request that the current owners make repairs before closing. You’ll want to get this in writing, along with provisions if the sellers fail to fix the problems.

But there’s no obligation for sellers to address the inspector’s discoveries. If they aren’t willing to shoulder the burden, you need to assess whether the cost of a new roof—or mold abatement, or fixing the foundation, or whatever the problem is—is worth the reward. With no solution beyond paying $30,000 from your own pocket, you might need to move on to a more habitable home. “People get very invested in the home they want to buy, and it all becomes a very overwhelmingly emotional experience,” Singer says. “But they need to listen to the advice of the inspector, take a look at the financial ramifications, and make a clear-headed decision.”

Hopefully, all will go well and your inspector will say it’s fine to move in. At that point, most homeowners move on to an even more intimidating step: Locking in the terms of their home loan. Stayed tuned for that installment of our Home-Buying Guide next week.

Hey, Homeowners! These Little-Known Tax Deductions Can Save You Thousands

Be sure to get the most back on your taxes this year. Renee Morad from Realtor.com outlines some important tax information for homeowners. 


 

Hey, Homeowners! These Little-Known Tax Deductions Can Save You Thousands

By

You probably already know that owning a home comes with some sweet tax benefits, like the mortgage-interest and property-tax deductions. But did you know there’s a whole list of other homeowner-related tax breaks that you might be leaving on the table?

We’re not talking chump change, either. Homeowners already save an average of $3,000 a year in taxes from mortgage-interest and property-tax deductions, according to the National Association of Realtors. When you add in some of the lesser-known homeowner tax breaks, you could really be amping up the savings—and beating the IRS at its own game.

Back in December, Congress passed the Protecting Americans From Tax Hikes Act of 2015, which extended many exemptions that were about to expire and made others permanent. But to reap the benefits, you first have to know about them.

So, here we go! Check out these common—and not-so-common—homeowner deductions that you should take advantage of this year:

1. Mortgage interest deduction

If you’ve taken out a loan to buy a house, you can deduct the interest you pay on a mortgage, with a balance of up to $1 million. To access this deduction, you will have to itemize rather than take the standard deduction. The savings here can add up in a big way. For example, if you’re in the 25% tax bracket and deduct $10,000 of mortgage interest, you can save $2,500.

Of course, there are some limitations. For example, if you’re helping a family member pay his or her mortgage, you can’t deduct that interest on your tax return.

2. Private mortgage insurance

Qualified homeowners can deduct payments for private mortgage insurance, or PMI, for a primary home. Sometimes you can take the deduction for a second property as well, as long as it isn’t a rental unit. Here’s the catch: This only applies if you got your loan in 2007 or later.

Another restriction: This deduction only applies if your adjusted gross income is no more than $109,000 if married filing jointly or $54,500 if married filing separately.

3. Property taxes

You can include state and local property taxes as itemized deductions. An interesting note: The amount of the deduction depends on when you pay the tax, not when the tax is due. As a result, paying property taxes earlier could have a positive impact on your return.

4. Capital gains on a home sale

The dreaded capital gains tax can be avoided when the gain from selling your personal residence is less than $250,000 if you are a single taxpayer or $500,000 if you are a joint filer. To qualify, you must have owned and used the home as a primary residence for at least two years out of the five years leading up to the sale.

5. Medical improvements

If you’ve made improvements to your home to help meet medical needs, such as installing a ramp or a lift, you could deduct the expenses—but only the amount by which the cost of the improvements exceed the increase in your home’s value. (In other words, you can’t deduct the entire cost of the equipment or improvements.)

“A lot of this comes down to fact and circumstance,” says Gil Charney, director of The Tax Institute at H&R Block. “For example, if you’ve recently installed a heated therapy spa or hot tub in your home, you may be able to deduct the expense if there’s also evidence that, say, a physical therapist visits your home three times a week and you’re over a certain age.”

6. Home office

If you have a dedicated space in your home for work and it’s not used for anything else, you could deduct it as a home office expense.

“It doesn’t have to be an entire room,” Charney says. “It can just be a dedicated space.”

7. Renting out your home on occasion

If you rented out your home for, say, a major sports event like the Super Bowl or the World Series, or a cultural event such as Mardi Gras, the income on the rental could be totally tax free—as long as it was for only 14 days or fewer throughout the course of a year.

8. Discount points

Discount points, which are paid to lower the interest rate on a loan, can be deducted in full for the year in which they were paid. In addition, if you’re buying a home and the seller pays the points as an incentive to get you to buy the house, you can deduct those points, Charney explains.

9. Energy-efficiency tax credit

You can take advantage of an energy-efficiency tax credit of 10% of the amount paid (up to $500) for any green improvements, such as storm doors, energy-efficient windows, and air-conditioning and heating systems.

10. Loan forgiveness deduction

If you’re the owner of a foreclosed or short-sale home, you can take advantage of mortgage-debt forgiveness. For example, if you make a short sale of your primary home at $250,000 but owe $300,000 on your mortgage, the lender will forgive the extra $50,000 owed—and you don’t have to pay taxes on that amount.

For more tax tips, check out IRS Publication 530 for a list of what homeowners can (and cannot) deduct.

 

 

Owners Have More Equity Than They Realize

The National Association of Realtors explains how Owners aren’t realizing the true equity they have in their home since the market has rebounded. For an appraisal, please feel free to contact me.


 

Owners Have More Equity Than They Realize

DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2016
Home owners are increasingly optimistic about gaining equity in their homes this year, but they’re still conservative on how much they’ve truly gained.

Forty-six percent of home owners with a mortgage say they believe they’ll see their equity increase in 2016, and the majority expect to see a gain by as much as 10 percent, according to a new study of 1,000 home owners conducted by the lender loanDepot.

Indeed, about a quarter of home owners surveyed say they expect their equity to increase between 6 and 10 percent this year while 58 percent say they expected equity to increase 1 to 5 percent. Economists have largely predicted equity gains to be between 2.3 and 4.7 percent this year.

Despite the equity optimism, 80 percent of home owners underestimate the amount of value their home has gained since the housing recovery, according to the loanDepot survey.

“Home owners who bought during the housing boom are regaining equity many thought was lost forever, yet too many are not aware of the equity they have gained or they are unclear about how to determine changes in their equity,” says Bryan Sullivan, chief financial officer of loanDepot, LLC. “People who bought after the housing boom when prices were low are realizing home ownership can be a great investment and an asset that they can now leverage through equity to realize many dreams. Whether they choose to leverage their home equity now or reserve it for future needs, millions of home owners have choices today not available just a few years ago.”

Home owners who purchased their home prior to the housing boom or during it – and who then watched their equity fade during the 2007 to 2009 bust – have different views on the equity picture than home owners who purchased post-2009. For example, the study found that more buyers who purchased after 2009 believe:

  • 64% believe their home has gained value since 2013 compared to 58 percent of pre-2009 owners.
  • 50% expect to gain more equity this year compared to 43 percent of pre-2009 buyers.
  • 65% believe they have adequate equity now to take out a home equity loan compared to slightly over half (52%) of post-2009 buyers.
