Is Now The Right Time To Sell Your Home?

Now may be the right time to consider making the move. Some homeowners have been waiting for years for a better housing market and a good time to sell. Is it better to wait a few more years gambling on if the market will move higher vs continuing to ride the market down. For many sellers finding the right home and lifestyle today outweights playing the odds while living in a home that not right for their current situation. We are frequently asked this time of year by sellers if they should wait for the Spring to list their home.  Based on our experience and MLS sales data, now is the best time to sell and Jonathan J. Miller, the president of the appraisal firm Miller Samuel agrees. In a survey done by Miller Samules the results indicated that the best time to list a home is ?at the tail end of winter, just before the spring sales rush.? On Long Island listings introduced in March sell the fastest, and sell for 1.4 percent closer to their original listing price. 20 percent fewer listings are added in winter than spring. As a result, if you have a really pretty house, it gets snapped up right away. They buy it faster; they pay more money.? Todays historically low interest rates give buyers more buying power today then any time in the last several decades. Buyers are out looking for clean homes that are priced at market value, and the low interest rates are making homes more affordable for them. We see sellers who are sitting on the fence waiting for the market to come back to 2008 numbers. That?s highly unlikely and the reality is prices are still declining and the taxes and carrying costs of owning a home keep rising. This is eating away at peoples nest egg, and keeping them in a home that is no longer right for their current needs. Long Island home owners who were considering selling this time last year and didn?t, lost on average over $22,000 of equity in their home based on the latest sales figures. Long Island like the rest of the country grappled with unemployment, tight credit and distressed real estate putting downward pressure on home prices. This trend could continue for several more years to come. If you decide to move we will help you with the emotions of selling, and allow you to maintain control of your schedule without pressure during the transition. Let us give you a no obligation evaluation of your current homes value and your new lifestyle options. Contact Melanie Mazzeo or Gary Baumann at: 631-858-2439 or email: melanie.mazzeo@elliman.com.

Long Islands North Shore

The North Shore of Long Island is the area along Long Island’s northern coast, bordering Long Island Sound. The region has long been the most affluent on Long Island, as well as the most affluent in the New York metropolitan area, which has earned it the nickname “the Gold Coast.” Though some consider the North Shore to include parts of Queens, particularly the quasi-suburban northeastern neighborhoods such as Douglaston, the term is generally used to refer to the Long Island coastline in the towns of North Hempstead, Oyster Bay, and Huntington, in Nassau and Suffolk County.

Being a terminal moraine of the Wisconsin glaciation, the North Shore is hilly, and its beaches are more rocky than those on the flat, sandy outwash plain of the south shore.

Long Island 55+ Community Guide And Brochure

Click Here For A Free 55+ Community Brochure & Guide.

Discovering the nest egg is shrinking, some intrepid retirees have concluded the best path is bail from the nest.

Even if home prices aren’t encouraging, many Long Islanders are finding the time is right to trade the big house with its maintenance, high tax and utility bills for a more manageable, affordable home that fits their lifestyle – on or off Long Island.

Median home sale prices dropped from $490,000 in Nassau County in July 2006 to $423,000 in July 2011, and from $410,000 to $321,000 in Suffolk County over that span, it’s not a bad time for retirees or those approaching retirement to sell.

“Capital gains taxes are at historic lows,” said Harvey Susnick, a partner in the Jericho office of the accounting firm Berdon. Currently, there’s a $500,000 exclusion for a married couple and a $250,000 exclusion for individuals, and after the exclusion, the federal capital gains tax is just 15 percent.

The high exclusion and low taxes are particularly important for homeowners who have had their home for decades. “There are people who bought their house 30 years ago for $70,000 and now it’s worth $800,000,” Susnick said.

For capital gains tax purposes, homeowners can deduct what they paid for capital improvements. “If you have been in a house for 30 years, chances are you have made improvements like finishing the basement, redoing the kitchen or adding rooms,” said Susnick, who noted the real estate commission from the sale is deducted from the capital gain, as well.

We have so many beautiful 55+ Communities all across Long Island.  New Construction In St. James starting at $299,000 with very low maintenance fees and taxes.  The Greens In Melville Offers A Luxury Lifestyle With Low Taxes on the Nassau/Suffolk border.  The amount of money you will be saving by moving into one of the communities will make up for the decline in the market.  We have watched taxes increase while property values decrease over the past few years.  Now is the time to make the decision!
