2 Ways to Score Before the New Year!

1. Your Homestead Exemption Could be Worth $50k!

When purchasing a home before the new year the tax savings you could be eligible for in 2019 could make a major difference. Applying for a Homestead exemption could reduce the taxable value of your Homestead property by up to $50,000, resulting in a tax savings of approximately $750 annually!

2. Slow Season = Big Savings

Homes historically stay on the market longer in December because less people are out buying a home. This means the possibility of bigger savings for home buyers! Your realtor should have more negotiating power on your behalf if the seller is motivated to sell before the new year.  If December is not an option consider looking before the spring.  Home buying season will pick back up in March.
