What Do Realtors® Need to Know about the Homestead Laws?
It’s much more than just filing for Homestead and getting the Standard $50,000 exemption! Failing to identify these issues could cost your clients up to $10,000 a year in additional property taxes
The 30+ Exemptions
Sure there’s the $50,000 Standard Exemption. But there are DOZENS more. Do you know them all? Did you know that moving parents or grandparents into a Granny Flat can save up to 20% of the property tax bill? Did you know that all senior citizens with income under about $30k get another $50,000 exemption? Did you know that some senior citizens are COMPLETELY EXEMPT from having to pay property taxes?
What Do Realtors® Need To Do About All This!?
As a Realtor®, YOU ARE THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE. You get involved the earliest in the sale/purchase process and have the best chance to save them from losing their savings. Your client is hiring you to guide them through the mysterious and unfamiliar process of a real estate closing. They expect that you will tell them about anything important that they need to know- especially something that would cost them thousands of dollars a year! So what should you do to protect them?
