Protect Your Hard Earned Equity

The most important job you have in selecting a real estate agent is to protect your hard earned equity. Everyone talks about the valuation, some call it a CMA. There is even a company that calls it a Zestimate. What they don’t understand is that a listing without a checklist is a listing without a plan.

This is why my company and I provide a free, no obligation valuation along with an equity protecting checklist to our neighbors.

My advice is that you do nothing until you meet with me to discuss the equity that you have worked so hard for. The secret to the checklist is how it is prioritized. I focus on protecting your equity and this is why I consider myself a real estate adviser not just an agent selling a house.

5 Questions You Should Ask Before You List Your House

  1. Is the market feasible for selling? Your agent can provide you with the data to help you determine if now is a good time to sell. Call your agent and ask for a free, no obligation home valuation. She should give you a value range base on what the market is doing, the condition of your home and other criteria.
  2. Is now a good financial time to sell? Based on the valuation provided by your REALTOR® and what you currently owe on your house including all mortgages does it make sense to sell now? Will you make enough on the sell of your house to pay closing costs and still make money?
  3. Is my house in good repair? Are there home maintenance projects you’ve been putting off? Your agent should do a walk-thru with you and provide a checklist of all the items that need to be addressed. Are there leaks, cracked windows, loose or missing caulk? For a more thorough list you might consider getting a professional home inspection done. Your agent should be able to provide you with a list of home inspectors in your area.
  4. Is my house clean and clutter free? Areas appear more spacious when they are clean and clutter free. Have a garage sale, donate to a charity, or give away items you no longer need. Consider temporarily renting a storage unit to store items you want to keep but could live without for a couple months.
  5. Does my house have good curb appeal? Mow the lawn, trim the hedges and add colorful plants. Does your mail box need updating? What about the front door, could it use a fresh coat of paint and a new welcome mat?

Homestead Exemption Deadline TODAY

“The Florida homestead exemption and Save Our Homes assessment limitation help Florida homeowners save money on their property taxes. Benefits are also available to property owners with disabilities, senior citizens, veterans and active duty military service members, disabled first responders, and properties with specialized uses.

Taxable value of a home is reduced thru homestead exemptions to help the homeowner save money on property taxes. If your home is valued at $150,000 and you receive a $25,000 homestead exemption, your home will be taxed as if it is worth $125,000. In order to take advantage this benefit, you must submit an application by the deadline on March 1, 2019.”

How do I file a homestead exemption?

Visit the link below to locate instructions for your county. Some counties allow online filing while others require you to visit the property appraisers office. Click here to find your county instructions

http://floridarevenue.com/property/Pages/Taxpayers_Exemptions.aspx

Who qualifies for an exemption?

Anyone who owned a home on Jan. 1 and used it as a primary residence on that date is entitled homestead exemption.

Are other exemptions available?

If you qualify for the over-65 or disabled exemption, you are also entitled to a permanent, locked-in “ceiling” on the school property taxes on your home. In case of death, the over-65 or disabled homeowner’s exemption, but not the school tax ceiling, transfers to the surviving spouse, if the spouse is 55 years of age or older at the time of death and lives in and owns the home. The exemptions may be transferred to another property by using the former home’s tax “ceiling” calculation.

Do I have to apply each year?

No. If you had a homestead exemption on your home the previous year, you won’t need to reapply unless your chief appraiser requires it. However, if you have not received an exemption on your present home or if you have moved to a new home, you will need to file for an exemption the current year.

Is there a fee to file for the exemption?

There is no application fee; the service is provided free of charge. Beware of letters you may receive saying they will file for you for a fee.

What is the application deadline?

You are to file the completed application with all required documentation beginning Jan. 1 and no later than April 30 of the year for which you are requesting an exemption but if you. If you qualify for the age 65 or older or disabled persons exemption or the exemption for donated homesteads of partially disabled veterans, you are to apply for the exemption no later than the first anniversary of the date you qualify for the exemption.

In DUVAL county

“The deadline to timely file for a homestead exemption is March 1. Late filing is permitted through early September. (The deadline for late filing is set by Florida law and falls on the 25th day following the mailing of the Notices of Proposed Property Taxes which occurs in mid-August.)”
