First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit

First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit

Photo - A family surrounded by moving boxes

Through Canada’s Economic Action Plan, the federal government introduced the First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit (HBTC) to help with the purchase of a first home.

About the Initiative

The HBTC assists first-time home buyers with the costs associated with the purchase of a home, such as legal fees, disbursements and land transfer taxes, which are a particular burden for first-time home buyers, who must also save for a down payment. The $5,000 non-refundable HBTC amount applies to qualifying homes acquired after January 27, 2009, and provides up to $750 in federal tax relief. An individual is considered a first-time home buyer if neither the individual nor the individual’s spouse or common-law partner owned and lived in another home in the year of the home purchase or in any of the four preceding calendar years. Special rules apply for the purchase of homes that are more accessible or better suited to the personal needs and care of an individual who is eligible for the Disability Tax Credit. In these situations, the HBTC can be claimed, even if the first-time home buyer requirement is not met. A qualifying home is generally considered to be a housing unit located in Canada that the individual or individual’s spouse or common-law partner intends to occupy as their principal place of residence no later than one year after its acquisition. Any unused portion of an individual’s HBTC may be claimed by the individual’s spouse or common-law partner. When two or more eligible individuals jointly purchase a home, the credit may be shared but the total credit amount claimed cannot exceed $5,000. Claimants should ensure that documentation supporting the purchase transaction is available if requested by the Canada Revenue Agency. Claimants are also responsible for making sure that all applicable eligibility conditions are met.

Who Will Benefit

First-time home buyers purchasing a home may claim the HBTC on their income tax returns, starting with the 2009 taxation year.

Initiative Update HBTC received Royal Assent on December 15, 2009. Canadians purchasing their first home after January 27, 2009 can claim the HBTC on their income tax return for the year in which they make their purchase.

5 Tips for Selling Your Home Quickly

July 27th, 2013 by Noor Shihab

5 Tips for Selling Your Home Quickly

There are several reasons why you may want to sell your home   quickly. For example, a job change may require a speedy relocation to another city, or you may have purchased another property and don’t want to be stuck too long with two mortgages.

Here are some tips that can help get the sold sign on your front lawn sooner.

  • Be realistic with price. If you set the listing price higher than the current market value of your home, then you’re not going to get many, if any, viewers. You want the list price to be attractive, which means listing at the current market value.
  • Get things fixed. You probably don’t have time for a major renovation. So just make sure everything in your home is in good working order. Deal with any obvious maintenance issues, such as a leaking faucet or a gate hanging precariously on one hinge.
  • Ensure your home shows well, inside and outside. Eliminate clutter. Trim hedges. Make sure every room has adequate lighting, especially the basement. Imagine that a special guest is visiting your home, then clean up and prepare accordingly.
  • Be flexible with viewing times. You want as many potential buyers as possible to see your home. So don’t restrict viewing times to just Saturdays. Make sure your home is as “available” as possible for showings. This may cause you and your family some inconvenience, but the reward will be selling your property sooner.
  • Work with a good REALTOR®. Find an agent who understands the area and the local market well. He or she will be able to recommend a variety of strategies that will help sell your home faster, and for a good price.•

    Of course, there’s no way to guarantee that you’ll sell your home within the time frame you want. But these tips will certainly increase the chances that you will.

    Looking for a good REALTOR® who knows the area well? Call today.

When is the best time to sell your home?

July 21st, 2013 by Noor Shihab

When is the best time to sell your home?

Whether you are looking to downsize, upgrade, relocate or simply want a lifestyle change, the process of selling your home can be a positive one. As a professional Real Estate agent, my goal is to help you sell your home with little hassle, as quickly as possible and for top dollar.

 

Before taking the step forward in terms of placing that “Just Listed” sign on your property, I recommend taking time to assess the reasons why you want to move.

Perhaps:

 

– The kids have moved out and you are ready to downgrade?
– Maybe you are wanting to start a family and need more room?
– Have you changed employment and want to move closer to the office?
– Perhaps, you simply want to change your lifestyle whether to embrace a more urban atmosphere or a suburb.
– or a factor of various other reasons…

 

By discovering your motives for selling, I will be able to assist you better when it comes to searching for a new home and figuring out what you ultimately require in the outcome of selling your existing home.

When is the best time to sell your home?

While more houses typically go on the market in the spring, this does not necessarily indicate that this is the only good time to list your home. Ultimately, there are always buyers and sellers so it really comes down to your situation and what works best for you. While the winter months are typically assumed to be the worst time to sell, there are many occasions that indicate otherwise. For example if a person sells their home in the fall, they will need a new home anywhere from the next month to 3 months away. This means that this person may have less inventory to choose from and therefore your property may stand out more, resulting in an increased demand and higher selling price. Alternatively, in the spring there may be more inventory and also more buyers. If the balance of buyers versus inventory in both spring and winter is on par, the pricing will remain the same or similar.

Keep in mind, your time is the right time. In most cases, the best time to sell is likely when your existing home no longer meets your needs.

Economic factors are an important factor

When selling, you may want to also take into consideration economic factors. Are interest rates low or high and how do these interest rates compare to your current mortgage? If rates are higher, your monthly payment amounts may be higher than your existing ones upon the purchase of another home. If rates are lower, it could be a great time to trade up to a more expensive home without enduring a significant increase in your monthly financial obligations.

Market trends may also play a part depending on whether it is a buyers or sellers market. Typically, in a buyers’ market, there are more homes for sale then there are actual buyers. In a buyers market, homes will tend to stay on the market longer and prices may stabilize or decrease. Just because it is a buyers market though, does not mean that your home will not sell, take longer to sell and or be sold at significantly decreased prices. By making sure that your home is priced at a fair value and is show ready, your home should still sell in a decent amount of time and at a great price.

In comparison, a sellers market tends to have more buyers then houses available to be purchased. A sellers market typically translates into quicker sales and higher selling prices with buyers having to make decisions at a quicker pace and being prepared for potential multiple offer scenarios. Other than a buyers and sellers market, many times there is what is considered a balanced market. A balanced market occurs when the number of homes of the market is approximately equal to the quantity of buyers looking for new homes.

Regardless of the market, I am able to provide you with the most knowledge and offer resources in order to make the most of your move. Through comprehensive training in the real estate market, I can take advantage of all the factors discussed above to help assess your situation and determine the right buying or selling time that would work best for you personally.
