It is no secret that Florida does not have a state income tax, which is fantastic, but unfortunately that’s not the only taxes to consider, especially for retirees. The good news is that a recent study by Kiplinger’s found that Florida was the 8th most tax-friendly state in the country for retirees. Florida has an about average sales tax rate, an average property tax rate (if you’re not on the oceanfront!) and there are additional homestead exemption benefits for homeowners aged 65+. Plus, there is no estate tax or inheritance tax

Interest rates continue to be very low and there is no shortage of lenders willing to assist buyers in our area. But obtaining a mortgage is not always a guarantee, and it is better to have your ducks in a row now, before that dream home slips away due to a failure to qualify. A recent study by the Federal Reserve listed the top three reasons that buyers fail to get a mortgage approval. Let’s take a look:

  1. The number one reason comes down to the basics of whether you can afford the proposed mortgage payment. The debt-to-income ratio is one of the top factors lenders use to grant mortgages as it measures how much your

Worries in the real estate market still continued to hamper the Florida market this past October.  

According to the Florida Association of Realtors, sales of existing single-family homes totaled 9165, a sharp drop off of 29 percent from one year before, October 2006, when 12,846 of these homes were sold.

Our leaders in the Florida House and Senate continue to look for the perfect "band-aid fix" for our property taxes. The Florida Property Tax problem is more like a "deadly cut" and not a minor bruise. It will take much more than a band-aid to fix the current inequities in the Florida Property Tax system. Homeowners in Daytona Beach, Port Orange, and throughout Central Florida are affected.

 The most recent proposal includes:

  • Doubling of homestead exemptions - The lawmakes want to add another $25,000 homestead exemption. Does not apply to school taxes. BIG DEAL!! This doesn't fix the problem!
  • Low-Income Senior Exemption - Are you 65 or older? You may not have to pay taxes if this new plan is voted in. Is this Fair?
