Andrew Duncan has Bob Henriquez from Hillsborough County Property Appraiser as a guest to talk about the timeline of Homestead portability on The Duncan Duo Real Estate Show on 970 WFLA - Tampa Bay.

Bob explains that the way the law is written, some people think they have 2 years to port their tax savings or Homestead Cap to the new home. But in reality, you have 2 tax years. As we are coming close to the end of the year, if you were to close on a home between now and Dec 31st, you have until the end of next year and not 2 full years. You will have a year and 2 months.

Tax Year vs Annual Year

Some people forget timing of tax year vs annual year which are not the same thing. This is one of the things to take into consideration when you are thinking of purchasing towards the end of the year.

Consumers get focused purely on the price that they forget about those little terms and timelines that could cost them money. An example of this is when someone wants buy a home and moving up and they also need to sell their home in order to bring their homestead over to their new home. The window shrinks as they move towards the end of the year.

Andrew shares that he has seen this before where some people go back and forth for weeks for a couple of thousand dollars when in fact, in those two weeks, they have missed filing for their Homestead which could have saved them a lot more money.

Tampa Bay Home Values Assessments vs Market Value Hillsoborough County Property Appraiser

You may also call me at (813) 359-8990 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions.

Listen as Andrew Duncan talks about Tampa Bay Home Values Assessments vs Market Value Hillsoborough County Property Appraiser with guests Paul Arrington from Arrico Real Estate and Property Management, John Morgan from FBC Home Loans and Bob Henriquez, the Hillsborough Property Appraiser.

Paul starts off by explaining how some people confuse their assessment with their actual market value. For example, if a home owned for 10 yrs is homestead exempted they are looking at their assessment as oppose to the market value. Over time, by virtue of having homestead exemption, the individual living in the home has realized some tax deferment. The new purchase price will markedly increase their assessment because the new purchaser will not have the benefit of the Homestead exemption of 10 years.

What is a good way to estimate their taxes

It's a function to Save Our Home Assessment cap, Bob explains. In the wake of the Save Our Homes constitutional amendment if you have a homestead property, your taxable value or tax assessment or highly regulated government value vs the market or just value can only go up at any given tax year 3% or inflation whichever is less. You are accruing tax savings over the course of those years. When the home is sold, it will reset the cap. The value of the home starts at the just value again or the purchase price.

It is also depends on the time of the year, and the time the home is sold because the market is fluid and dynamic during the year.

The market value/just value is based on a lot of different factors and not just the sale price. It's a compilation of sale prices of like homes within a similar neighborhood or similar subset of sales.

Appraisal value vs Assessment value

People often get confused when they get their appraisal done and they see the assessment and see those 2 numbers are different. A lot of people believe that the assessed value is the market value or the tax value is the market value. And when they get their appraisal back or a year or two down the line, they see those two numbers differ.

John shares that they see that more often from out of state buyers because a lot of them don't understand the Homestead and how exactly the assessments are done here.

Differences between Residential & Commercial Mortgages

You may also call me at (813) 359-8990 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions.

Andrew Duncan talks to Jorge Gonzales from FBC Home Loans and Gene Snyder from Platinum Bank about the differences between qualifying for commercial loan vs residential loan.

When applying for residential loan, they will take a look at your credit, income and your assets. They want your debt to income ratios to be in line to afford the property. They will also have the appraisal come and make sure it meets Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac guidelines or for whatever program they need. Andrew adds the importance of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac because the mortgages are being backed by them so they have to fit their box as oppose to the commercial side where there is no box to fit into.

In Commercial loans, there are a lot less boxes to check on the commercial side. In commercial lending bank, it is based more on the relationship with the borrower and not specific to any projects or any boxes to check.

Andrew talks about his first hand experience when Platinum bank financed his new office building*. He raves at how they did an awesome job for him with great competitive rates, etc.

It's a full credit underwriting that they do and not just a bunch of boxes to check. It has to do with all the financials, their history and experience. He shares that he writes 20 pages to get an approval where they tell the whole story which will get them through committee.

Andrew explains that the committee is basically a group of advisers or the board from Platinum Bank that sit down and discuss whether to approve the loan or not as oppose to the residential world where it's more of a computer or sometimes an underwriter looking at the application. Gene agrees and says that these are local decision makers who may know the business, the applicant and would be able to weigh the pro's and cons of approving the application.

Realtor and Home Seller Safety and why Tampa Bay Agents want to Meet at the office or neutral location



There are many Tampa Bay area homes for sale. Click here to perform a full home search, or if you're thinking of selling your home, click here to learn about our “Your Home Sold Guaranteed in 29 Days” program or for a free property valuation so you know what your home can sell for in today’s market. You may also call me at (813) 359-8990 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions.

Andrew Duncan talks about Realtor home seller and home buyer safety on The Duncan Duo Real Estate Show on 970 WFLA. This was triggered by a story that went viral recently where a Realtor from Arkansas was believed to be abducted from a a vacant bank owned property she was showing in a suburban area of Little Rock around 5:30 pm CST on September 29.

He talks to Robert Johnson from his Listing team about scenarios that they encounter with some consumers. He explains the importance of meeting potential clients in a neutral location like the office. Aside from doing a check of the person's identity and if they are prequalified, etc, there is also a safety element to it.  This is the process they follow in order to protect the safety of not only the realtor but also that of the buyer or seller's. He says that there have been incidents where bad things have happened to realtors in this type of situations. No sale is really worth that risk.

Getting a push back from a consumer usually raises a red flag. As Robert highlights, based on experience people who are serious buyers understand that there is a process that they need to go through in order to see a home. One could almost tell that the buyer is not serious when they give  a lot of push back from it. Not only does it give protection to the realtor and buyer but it also gives protection to the seller. They want to make sure that these are legitimate people they are letting into their house.

This incident has become a wake up call to the real estate industry to review their company policies, how they can improve things and ensure the safety of everyone. There are measures like having a buddy in the office, they need to screen people and have them come to their office.

Andrew shares that in their new office, they have put in advanced security cameras to double their efforts in protecting their people as well as their clients.

Sean Yesner from Yesner Law shares an experience where he was at a friend's house who had a for sale sign on the yard. They had people come up to the door saying they want to come in and take a look around as they are potential buyers. He advised for them to wait for their realtor to take care of it. If the people are really serious about buying the house, have the buyers sign up with their agent and go through the proper channels to take them through the house.

Andrew says that it's difficult because some people see a for sale sign on the yard and thinks it's a guaranteed right to entry and that they could just go right up and knock on the door. They don't even consider that the seller would be inconvenienced until the sun comes down just because of that sign on the yard. He says that they advice all their seller clients that they have a process they follow before the buyers are let into the property. They need to screen them. They need to go through the electronic lock box if they work with an agent. But there are still a lot of incidents that happen despite this policy.

He says that Real Estate is one of the few industries where expectations are high and meetings are usually done on the properties instead of a neutral location like the office.

There are some clients who opt not to have a sign on the yard because of the risks involved. Andrew says that they honor their request, eliminating some of the advertising. There are some give and take between the advertising and marketing and of course the client's safety. If you are a consumer and you call their agent wanting to meet up at the property and they are hesitant, the buyers should understand they are only concerned about their safety. They don't know who you are. They haven't had the chance to meet you. They know nothing about you. You can't just expect them to have this amazing level of trust after one phone call.

His response to people who complain about their process "I'm sorry but your business is not more than someone else's life."

Andrew discusses with John from FBC Home Loans that although they essentially deal with the same people, the Real Estate industry has this stigma that it is acceptable to do business or meet ups at the properties. He asks John if they encounter such safety risks with their loan officers. John says they do encounter some scenarios and he counsels, especially their female loan officers, to make sure that somebody is around at the office when they meet up with clients even outside office hours. Andrew agrees and also mentions that some of his agents have decided to go as a group to get their concealed weapons permit and self defense classes as an extra step for their protection.

He concludes the discussion by saying that people should understand that it's not that they don't want to help them or they don't want to show them the home but they just need to go through a few steps to ensure his people's safety. No home sale is worth that kind of risk.

Student Loan Debt is reducing home sales, more buyers getting down payment help, legal pitfalls in Tampa Bay

You may also call me at (813) 359-8990 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions.

Andrew Duncan talks to John Morgan from FBC Home Loans and Shawn Yesner from Yesner Law about how student loan debt is reducing home sales.  They also discuss how student loan debt is requiring many first time home buyers to get down payment help from the bank of mom and dad.  Yesner goes into some pitfalls of family joint ownership and parents loaning money or giving money to kids for down payment.

Andrew starts off by saying student debt could reduce home sales by 8% this year. He asks about the impact this may have and why more and more buyers are going to the bank with Mom and Dad.

John says that 30% of the time, student loans are causing buyers  to get lower what they can be approved for or not get prequalified at all. These buyers are out of school, just starting their career, and certainly not at their peak income which eats away from their buying ability.

Sean There have been a lot of legal discussions over Student loan debts which talks about all the possible things that could happen with student loan debt that people feel like is impacting the market. One of the things being discussed by the Federal Congress has been debating to make student loan debt dischargeable

under certain conditions in the bankruptcy court. For years, student loans have not been dischargeable. Bankruptcy won't get rid of the obligation to pay though. Recently, the code was changed to take even private student loans are now dischargeable. There have been discussions and bills being introduced where bankruptcy may now be one avenue to get rid of student loan debt.

Andrew shares a statistic he saw in an article - borrower's purchasing power declines by 44,000 with every 250 per month of student debt. Because of how advantageous the student loan payback is, borrowers usually owe a high amount. Sean agrees and adds that because of the repayment terms, it goes on for a long time.

Andrew asks if the student loan debt the reason why more and more first time home buyers go to their mom and dad for loans and down payment help. Sean says that there were a couple of parts to it. One is that the parents could help with non occupant co borrower which is available on the FHA program as well as conventional. They are also seeing a lot more gift funds for the down payment.

They both warn people need to be cautious of the difficulties in mixing family and money. Sean sites that they've had many situations where they could avoid gift issues by making the children sign a promissory note and record a second mortgage in favor of mom and dad. That way, it's not a gift. Mom and Dad's money is protected, it's secured by the house. It might wait until after the closing to have these documents recorded but they can make it legal, a proper document, and secure it with the house.

Tampa Bay Top Realtor gives advice to help Tampa Bay First Time Home Sellers Sell quick top dollar



There are many Tampa Bay area homes for sale. Click here to perform a full home search, or if you're thinking of selling your home, click here to learn about our “Your Home Sold Guaranteed in 29 Days” program or for a free property valuation so you know what your home can sell for in today’s market.

Andrew Duncan has Robert Johnson, Director of his listing team, as guest on The Duncan Duo Real Estate Show on 970 WFLA. Listen as they give advice on how to help first time home sellers sell quick for top dollar.

The main thing sellers are not thinking about when they consider the equity they might have on their home is the actual closing costs in selling a home which does not only include the realtor costs. It's not that they don't really think about it, sellers usually get surprised when it's brought up.

Andrew adds that there are a lot of websites that provide home value but they don't usually do justice to it because they don't have all the data about the home which factors in the condition, they can't factor in borders for schools, etc.

Robert discusses that though Zillow has many good things about it, the Zestimate is one of the things that isn't that great. He uses South Tampa as an example. Zillow doesn't really differentiate between North of Kennedy and South of Kennedy. The comps provided in Zestimate includes those from South of Cambria which makes the value inaccurate. He also mentions other areas like Westchase and Carrollwood. These sites don't understand what the boundaries of these neighborhoods are and what affects the value of the property.

Andrew highlights that these sites are great for exposure. He says that they pay hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to get more eyes on their listings but doesn't agree that they are correct in estimating the value of your home on the computer which is why this profession exists.

This is why it is important to have a professional go look at the property, as Robert says, to assess and get the correct value.

Andrew mentions some of the services they provide like a stager crew they work with, and how they constantly give advice to their clients on what to improve, the changes they can make to maximize the value of their home without necessarily spending money. Just little things that could help sell the property.

Making sure the home is priced correctly is something very important. Andrew goes on to say that someone who's been paying attention to the market would have a better understanding of the correct values as compared to someone doing it for the first time.

Another thing that first time home sellers need to understand is the process and how it works. They need to be open to educating themselves about the process. He explains further that when working with a great real estate team, they will be providing the seller steps and guidance on what to do. He mentions that they make sure that all their clients' listings have great photos on a good weather day, as  just one of the steps to setting up their clients for success.

Robert closes the discussion by agreeing with Andrew and adding "Trust the process. Trust that we are working for your best interest."

We can't tell you how often we see luxury homes listed at over a million dollars with photos that look like they were taken with a cell phone. Sometimes it's obvious a Realtor hasn't even left their car to take the picture; we've even seen photos that look like the car was moving at the time they were taken! These unedited photos taken with inferior technology aren't going to help get your home exposure. In fact, they may even result in getting it less exposure.

The Duncan Duo is passionate about real estate photography. We know how important it is to make a good first impression on internet search sites. We employ advanced technology, like drones, in order to get great images of your home. We use Nikon and Canon cameras and wide-angle lenses to capture high-definition photos of your property. We're also one of the few agencies that shoots video. While less than 1% of agents use video to market their listings, we shoot video of every single home we list to give viewers a walk through experience.

Because we use innovative techniques to capture the essence of your home, we will get it both national and international exposure - something other agents can't promise. We understand that photography is an art that can't be done by anyone; that's why we hire professionals to get the job done right. If the first picture an online viewer sees doesn't pop, they are going to click 'next.' We use this technology to ensure every viewer can't resist clicking on our listing.

Many agents today don't understand the importance of first impressions - they think photos don't matter because buyers are going to come look at the property anyway. Consumers don't think that way. Today, consumers want all the information at their fingertips before looking at a home. If your listing doesn't have photographs that attract the eye because they aren't edited or taken at the right angle, it will hurt your ability to get your home exposed to the largest pool of buyers possible.

If you need to see it to believe it, go take a look at the homes we have listed online. You'll see how we go above and beyond to get your home sold. If you're interested in getting your home sold quickly and for top dollar, give us a call or shoot us an email. We'd love to help you make the most of your real estate experience!

She is now endorsing a select few of the best real estate minds in the country, The Duncan Duo included.  Andrew and Angela Duncan will appear in a commercial to air during this season’s episodes of Shark Tank as well several programs on CNBC and local affiliate television stations.

The Duncans’ company, RE/MAX Dynamic, is a dominant leader in the real estate industry, providing phenomenal service and expertise to a wide base of clientele in the Tampa and surrounding area. The  No. 1 RE/MAX agents in Florida in 2013, The Duncan Duo was also named Top 10 in the U.S. out of more than 80,000 RE/MAX agents. They were recently awarded the prestigious Inc. 5000 Award as one of America’s fastest growing privately held companies, placing just outside the top 1,000 at No. 1,052 and ranked #8 in Tampa.

The team’s sales have nearly doubled every year since 2009. It should be no surprise, then, that the growing real estate team will have its own move in mid-October, as RE/MAX Dynamic will relocate to an 8,000 square-foot office building on Dale Mabry Highway, just a block from Macdill Air Force Base.
