"Honestly, I was dreading the whole process of the sale of my home. I particularly needed a filter and advocate for the listing, showing, negotiating and closing. My business keeps me on a tight schedule as well as I work from home. Tom accommodated all without interruption, intrusion or inconvenience. He gave me options each step of the way and offered advice where I was uncertain. Tom's understanding of the local market and significant price changes very recent to my listed resulted in the sale of my home to the very first showing. Best yet was Tom's recommendations for sale prices all exceeded what I thought I could sell and it was a full price offer on the highest price-point Tom suggested. Watching the comparables in my neighborhood, they all jumped in price after my home was listed. Selling your home is always a challenge and I had my stress points. But Tom and his administrative assistant Chelce kept me on track, on time and positive focus throughout the process. Excellent job Tom!" Mike Wisgarda
Tom and his team were wonderful! We had started with a different realtor and the experience was not good. The other realtor was unresponsive and not able to sell our home in a really sought after subdivision. Then we were referred to Tom and he sold our house in a month! He was available, thorough, and made us more money! He was there every step of the way and made the process as stress free as possible when buying and selling homes. I highly recommend Tom and his team! Rob & Anna Moses

Senate tax plan has good and bad news for homeowners

WASHINGTON – Nov. 10, 2017 – It was the Senate's turn Thursday to unveil their plan to redo the U.S. tax code, and that led to more confusion and questions for Main Street savers and investors trying to figure out what all the proposed changes could mean.

For Americans too busy to keep their own tax-proposal scorecard, here's a CliffsNotes version of how the Senate's "Tax Cuts & Jobs Act" plan compares with the GOP House plan – and what it might mean for your stock investments, real estate holdings and other money matters.

Impact on real estate. There's good news and bad news when it comes to real estate.

The good news for homeowners and potential home buyers is the Senate plan not only protects the current $1 million interest deduction on home mortgages, but also maintains that cap for loans taken out on new home purchases. The House plan had cut the maximum amount of interest a homeowner could deduct to $500,000 on new purchases.

The Senate plan means someone who wants to buy an expensive home or lives in a part of the country, such as the East and West coasts where real estate is pricier, can reap a decent size deduction at tax time.

For example, a $1 million home bought with a 20 percent downpayment would result in a mortgage of $800,000. Under the Senate plan, the homeowner could deduct all of the $35,736 in interest via itemized deductions on their federal taxes, while they could only deduct $22,335 under the House plan. The $13,401 bigger tax deduction under the Senate plan adds up to a tax savings of roughly $3,350, assuming a 25 percent tax bracket.

The bad news is the Senate plan eliminates deductions for state and local taxes. In contrast, the House plan allows up to $10,000 in deductions. Under the Senate plan, a homeowner would pay roughly $2,500 more in taxes than under the House plan.

Impact on stock holdings. 401(k) investors have reason to smile. Under both the Senate and House bills, the current Internal Revenue Service rules that allow investors to deduct as much as $18,500 from their paychecks before taxes are calculated in 2018 will remain the same. Workers 50 or older will be able to stash away an additional $6,000 in pretax dollars.

But the Senate bill delays what Wall Street has been hoping for most: an immediate cut in the corporate tax rate to 20 percent, down from 35 percent. The Senate bill puts this permanent tax cut on hold for an extra year, or until 2019.

Wall Street gave that delay a chilly reception Thursday, as the news sent the Dow Jones industrial average tumbling more than 100 points, although the blue-chip average was down as much as 250 when the news first leaked out.

"I sense some fatigue out there as investors tire of playing this waiting game on seeing some actual results from the Trump administration," says Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at MUFG, a global financial firm.

Impact on child and elder care. The Senate preserved the $5,000 dependent care tax credit to help working families offset the costs of care for their children and older dependents. This is a good way for parents to pay for day care, summer camps and other child care services. The House had initially done away with this benefit but later restored it via an amendment to the initial bill.

Impact on other financial matters. When it comes to tax brackets, the Senate plan maintains the lowest 10 percent bracket and sets the top bracket at 38.5 percent for wealthier Americans.

The House plan's lowest bracket was 12 percent and its highest 39.6 percent. The Senate plan's brackets, which are lower at both the low end of the income scale and the upper end of the wage scale, mean taxpayers will pay less on that line item.

The Senate plan also preserves charitable deductions and allows for the deduction of medical expenses, which the House plan did not.

The Senate bill, like the House bill, repeals the alternative minimum tax, or AMT.

Florida Homes built to stricter standards fared better during Irma

muscle house As homeowners in Florida begin to take stock of the damage from Hurricane Irma, industry observers note that homes built to the state's stricter building codes seem to have fared better. The feedback we're hearing is positive," says Rusty Payton, chief executive of the Florida Home Builders Association. "We're all interested and there will be a deep dive. It appears that it did its job." Bill Wheat, executive vice president and chief financial officer at home builder D.R. Horton Inc., says his company's early assessments "indicate that the more recent building standards post-Andrew over the last 20 years have held up relatively well." The evidence so far is preliminary, however. Insurance companies, home builders, city and county officials and local resiliency experts say they are still conducting assessments of how homes and commercial buildings built to different standards held up during Irma. Florida has one of the strongest building codes in the country. Passed statewide in 2002 after Miami-Dade County beefed up regulations in the wake of Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the new rules required newly built homes to have stronger fasteners that prevent their roofs from blowing off, nails instead of staples, and impact-resistant windows in certain areas. Florida passed a bill this spring that gives the Florida Building Commission flexibility to evaluate whether or not to make code changes to keep up with technological advancement and removed a requirement that it adopt International Code Council standards every three years.
