Many of us are very busy daily with work, family, friends, church, serving, activities and events that we forget to review our investment status. There are many laws and regulations that can benefit homeowners, but majority of people are not aware of them. Different market, economy, geographical location, lifestyle changes, career environment, financial status all play a part of factors to determine when to do what in order to best leverage out your financial gain.
Did you know that each person has up to $250,000 owner occupied equity gain tax free? For example, if you have purchased a home at $300,000 and today is worth $700,000 and you have occupied the property for your own usage within the last 2 years out of 5, you may be eligible for a $250,000 per person tax free when you sell for a profit! That means the average people would have to work at least 5 years to have a net of $250,000!
If you are married, you have up to $500,000 tax free gain for the same criteria. If you have exceeded that maximum allowable equity gain, you will be subjected to tax. For example, if you have purchased the property at $200,000 and today is worth $900,000. As an owner-occupied single person given $250,000 tax free gain, you will need to pay tax on the remaining $450,000 gain, which is very hefty. However, if we had planned this out a few years before on all of your properties, we can sell right above your maximum allowable tax free equity gain, purchase another home for you to live in and start accumulating the equity again to leverage out your tax free equity.
There are many more benefits that may benefit each person or family based on lifestyle, needs and goal. Most successful people in the U.S. invest into real estate because they can work years less by knowing how to leverage real estate laws. Real Estate is my passion and I enjoy helping people plan for the long term in order to best leverage and utilize their wealth by working smarter and understanding the tax laws.
Real estate is not just a career that I enjoy, but also my passion and investment. I have used my real estate knowledge to help many others already; contact me so I can also help you! Please feel free to visit my Testimony page and see how many people I have already helped and continue to help!
