Here are some things the IRS suggests you keep in mind when selling a home. As always, for advice on tax planning and compliance, check with your accountant and/or the Internal Revenue Service for guidance before taking any action.
1. Taxpayers who sell a home may qualify to exclude from their income all or part of any gain from the sale. To claim the income tax exclusion, the homeowner must have owned the home for at least two years, and lived in the home as their main home for at least two years, during a five-year period ending on the date of the sale.
Selling your home can be a complex transaction with many twists and turns. One of those twists can be the home inspection. Knowing how to best respond to a negative home inspection can mean the difference between closing the sale or putting your home back on the market. It's best to put your ego aside, and prepare to compromise.
The answer is that housing industry growth is minimal because too few homes are for sale, and rising prices of homes in many markets have made home ownership financially out of reach for many families.
We're pleased to welcome Dennis Schaade to our team of professional REALTORS®!
Dennis became licensed as a real estate Agent in the spring of 2003. He can't believe this coming spring will be 15 years!
He has been around real estate sales since he was a child. His mother is a real estate agent. There are vivid memories of going on some showing appointments with her, which he always looked forward to, and he remembers all the paperwork and files his mom would have on the dining room table.
When faced with a multiple offer situation, expect the unexpected. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to multiple offers in a home sale, and we have seen sellers handle the situation in many different ways. Anything can happen.
A great time was had by all at the Coldwell Banker annual appreciation event for agents and staff at the Shedd Aquarium, where attendees celebrated another year of success with great food, drinks and lively conversation.
Thank you for a great night Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage!
Chicago's Forest Glen neighborhood is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. It also includes the Edgebrook and Sauganash communities. While the Forest Glen communities are only a few miles from downtown Chicago and the fast paced life one would associate with the city, the neighborhood has a suburban feel.
Looking at the latest statistics available from MRED, our local multiple listing service, here is what happened in residential real estate in Forest Glen, comparing February 2018 and its trailing 12 months with the same period in 2017.
