West Coast homeowners would be affected most
As part of their attempt to overhaul the federal tax system, the GOP and Trump administration are writing legislation that would place new limits on the home mortgage tax deduction—one of the longest standing benefits for homeowners. The move would help offset revenue that would be lost by cutting corporate and personal tax rates.
Tax change could be one-two punch for California homeowners
Such a cut would have the biggest effect on owners in expensive urban centers around the U.S., as well as most of the West Coast, where home prices are among the highest in the country, according to The Los Angeles Times. This proposal is on top of another anticipated change in the tax code that would hurt Californians more than residents in any other state—the ability to deduct state and local taxes from federal taxes.

It was such a pleasure to welcome my clients to homeownership last week! I loved every minute of working with this adorable family to find a more spacious home for their family in an excellent school district. We searched across several cities in the East Bay, and after they decided that they loved Walnut Creek the best, we focused on finding them a good sized condo there in their price range. We also needed to find a home that wasn’t too far from Bart so that the commute into San Francisco would still be convenient. Fortunately, we found a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo in their ideal price range right near the Bart station — a rare combination!
Thanks to my clients for working with me! Continue reading “SOLD – 2704 Oak Road #77, Walnut Creek”

I am thrilled to have closed on this cozy 2-bedroom home in San Leandro on Monday! Thank you to my client for putting your trust and faith in me to help you find a home. It has been a pleasure to help you buy your first home!
After getting beat on a few properties in a competitive market (including a property that received 50 offers!), and after the first position buyer fell out of contract, I was able to get my client into contract and negotiate the price down to save him a few thousand dollars off the purchase price. Proving that even in a hot market, homeownership can be attainable (with some patience and a little help from a skilled realtor). In the end, it was all worth it to get him this well-maintained home on a corner lot in his ideal location. Continue reading “SOLD – 393 Cherrywood Avenue, San Leandro CA”
