While today’s blog is primarily directed to new Real Estate Agents, it may be helpful to experienced ones as well.  We’re going to give a few quick tax tips to New Realtors. Taxation for New Real Estate Agents can be very confusing.  Many new agents come from an environment where they received a Form W-2, had their taxes auto  withholdings automatically, had very few expenses that they could deduct on their tax return (if any), and didn’t need to worry about tracking those expenses.   The tax responsibilities and opportunities in their new positions can be overwhelming.  However, I also meet experienced agents, who are excellent and successful at what they do, but have neither the time nor the interest in exploring these tax issues.  Below we’ll cover a few of these. What Can You Deduct...

Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using Plano Texas FHA 203k Renovation Loans.Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA (a department within HUD). A buyer or existing home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their existing home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program.However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Although, you can repaint, replace flooring and appliances, add a room to an existing structure (which can add to value tremendously as you increase the square feet of your home) as well as remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms.This loa...

Being a Plano Texas First Time Homebuyer makes you have to consider your options before you buy. The first thing you will need to consider is what your long-term goals are with being a home owner and how your goals fit in with that plan. One goal could be to stop paying rent that just increases after every lease you renew.Buying your own home first is one of the happiest times of your life! However, a lot of paperwork and time goes into it and finding a lender with great reviews will ease much of the stress. But, the satisfaction you get from your first home closing is something you will never forget! The benefits of being a Plano Texas First Time Homebuyer greatly outweighs renting for the following reasons:          Greater privacy.          Homes typically increase in value the older...
