What is an Opportunity Zone?

According to the IRS.gov website, “An Opportunity Zone is an economically-distressed community where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment….”  Examples of local Opportunity Zones include certain sections of Delray Beach just south of Atlantic Avenue, west of Federal Highway, sections of the west Atlantic Avenue corridor east of Interstate 95 west of Swinton Avenue.  Click here for more about these areas.

Determining whether you should buy a new home or fix up your current one isn’t easy. In fact, the decision can be steeped in so much drama, they make reality TV shows about it!

1. Will a renovation truly fix what you don’t like about your property?

If you’re tired of a small kitchen, for example, given the layout of your house, it might not be possible to make it any bigger. On the other hand, if you’re craving a spacious rec room with a cosy fireplace, then a renovation could make that happen.

Lang Realty Vs. Zillow, Trulia, & Realtor.com

Three Reasons Why Local is Always Better

The First Reason: We ALWAYS have better Data

Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, and all of the other national real estate websites pull data from hundreds of different MLS sources, along with multiple for sale by owner websites and other real estate listing services. They do not pull data from all of these services daily and the amount of data that they process is huge!

In a market where homes are selling in a day or two, this information delay could cause a homebuyer who is

What?

You’re Still Renting?

If you’re still renting property on an annual or seasonal basis, it’s time to rethink your strategy. There are dozens of reasons why it makes far more sense to buy property. Listed below are the top 10 reasons why you should make the commitment to buy as soon as possible.

  • 1. Appreciation – Real estate is expected to appreciate at double-digit rates over the next few years. If you own real estate, you will reap the profits from a future sale.
  • 2. The Perfect Retirement Plan – You can buy your dream home for far less money now, rather than paying too much because you waited until you retired to buy.
  • 3. Interest Rates – If you’re planning on getting a mortgage, interest rates could skyrocket. It makes more sense
