How Much Does Uncle Sam Take When You Sell Your Home? - 01/26/12 10:07 PM
Many seniors worry about the tax consequences of selling their home and moving to a condo, adult living community or even into a mother-in-law suite in the home of one of their children. There are a few rules that can help you. Every 2 years, the law allows you to sell a home for up to $250,000 and take a tax exclusion. This applies to anyone, whether they're living on social security and retirement savings or still working for a salary. To be eligible, the home you sell must have been your primary residence for 2 out of the last (6 comments)

Worst of Times - Best of Times - 01/11/12 01:54 AM
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) reports that the real estate market is improving in 76 markets across the country. They base part of that onthe number of building permits pulled and increased prices in home sales over the last 6 months. Full article here. Both Joplin and Columbia Missouri made the list. People are always asking me how the market is doing and when I think it's going to recover. You're probably asked the same question in your area. How do you answer that? It's the worst of times; it's the best of times. ♫ It depends. (9 comments)

2011 Kansas City Real Estate Market Report - 64114 - Waldo - 01/09/12 05:31 AM
There were 334 single family homes sold in zip code 64114 during 2011. The Waldo area has been a popular dancing and dining venue for Kansas Citians for a very long time. I know a few 80 and 90 year olds who remember taking the Trolley over to Waldo for a night out on the town way back when. The music and the establishments have changed but the atmosphere is still lively. The homes, overall, are more modest than the majority of homes found in Brookside so it's a great option for home buyers who are watching their pennies. (2 comments)
Top 5 Reasons To Sell Your House in Winter Time - 01/06/12 11:58 AM
Driving through the neighborhoods of Kansas City these past few weeks, I've noticed a marked decrease in the number of For Sale By Owner yard signs. Many of these homeowners still want to sell their house but believe that they will be better off taking the home off the market over the winter and then bringing it back on in the Spring. While it's true that more homes are sold in the Spring, it's not necessarily to your advantage to list your home for sale in the Spring. Why is that so? 1. Everybody thinks that Spring time is the best (2 comments)
