Rightfully so, future homeowners have lots of questions about how the new tax laws affect presumed advantages to owning a home. It’s true that some significant changes took effect January 1, 2018 such as the allowable interest deduction on mortgage loans and the deduction of state and local taxes which also includes the payment of property taxes.

Everyone knows that size matters, right? Home buyers are perhaps looking for a larger home, a big yard for the kids, a 3-car garage while sellers are looking for the possibility of an escalated purchase price, giving them the largest “profit” or equity return on what is often their single largest investment. Of course, these common objectives are completely valid but unique to every individual or family.

The frenetic pace of our current real estate market opens the door for homebuyers to use creative tactics when searching for their dream home. It’s important to weigh the pros and cons of such methods as well as the additional time it takes to initiate unconventional search campaigns.
