How to Avoid Capital Gains on your South Nashua home for sale

No one likes taxes, unless you are getting a tax return of course. Capital gains are a tax that you have to pay when you sell something for more than  you paid for it. In this case we will use your South Nashua home as the example. Say you buy your South Nashua home for $250,000, and then you sell your South Nashua home for sale a year later for $275,000. That is considered a capital gain, and you have to include them when you file your taxes.

Here are a few simple ways to avoid capital gains!

Wait Before You Sell

If you want to purchase a South Nashua home for sale as a primary residence, and later you decide it isn’t the right fit for you and your family and you want to sell it, you should wait at least two years before you do so. As long as it has been your primary residence for two of the last five years, will remove any gain you may make under $250,000. For a married couple it is even more, up to $500,000 at $250,000 per person.

A one year wait will also mark the value of other sales as a long-term capital gain, and you may even save 10%-20% depending on your tax rate. However, we always suggest asking your accountant, it doesn’t hurt to check with your local CPA to make sure the rules have not changed and that you are still making a sound decision.

Sell When Your Income Is Low

Your income level will impact the amount of long-term capital gains tax you will pay. The lower your income percentage is, the less money you will pay when tax time rolls around. The higher your income tax bracket, or the more you make yearly, the more you will be required to pay come the end of the year. People in the 25-35% income bracket pay around 15% on capital gains, while taxpayers in the 39.6% bracket pay 20%, and  in the 10%-15% bracket you may not be required to pay any long-term capital gains at all.

You are best off to sell your property when your household income is the lowest so you can avoid paying capital gains tax at all. However, that is not always possible so always discuss it further with your CPA to make sure you are selling at the right time.

Keep Your Home Improvement Receipts

Keep all your records! Make sure to keep receipts for any home improvements or additions you’ve made to your South Nashua home for sale over the years that you have lived there, or while you owned your South Nashua home. In addition to increasing your home’s value, any improvements that you make to your home increase your basis in the home and that will reduce your capital gains tax.

This tax-savings strategy can be particularly valuable! If you have a gain on your South Nashua home for sale and the house doesn’t qualify for the primary residence exclusion, or you’ve exceeded your exclusion amount it may come in handy.

An improvement is anything that betters your home. It could also restore your South Nashua home to a previous condition or adapt the condition it is in. Adding rooms, a deck, a pool, or even landscaping the property all count as improvements to your South Nashua home for sale. Upgrading windows and doors, plumbing, insulation, heating, cooling, wiring, irrigation or an indoor sprinkler system also qualify. Restoring damaged parts of your home, remodels including new kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, and built-in appliances are also improvements that are deductible. Retain copies of receipts and records and keep a log of all the purchases you’ve made.

Move Often

Although this can be time consuming, selling your South Nashua home for sale will help you use the capital gain to its fullest potential. You need to have lived in your house for at least two years to claim the exclusion. The IRS will allow taxpayers to use the exclusion multiple times, but no more than once every two years. This means you could sell multiple homes at a large gain and never pay a dime in taxes!

The capital gain exclusion is large enough that many taxpayers will never have to pay taxes on the sale of their Sale Nashua homes or for that matter wherever you live. AS stated previously, a married couple can exclude up to $500,000 or $250,000 each. However, if you’ve held your property for a long time, bought in desirable area, or you are single then the exclusion may not completely cover your gains.

What to Expect from a Hudson NH Seller’s Agent

A seller’s agent is a real estate agent that exclusively represents the seller of a house for sale in a real estate transaction. There is a contract between the property owner (otherwise known as the seller) and a real estate agent (also known as the seller’s agent) agreeing to sell your South Hudson home for sale. The contract requires the real estate agent to perform exclusive confidential duties for the seller such as researching recent selling prices for comparable properties in South Hudson NH, showing the property, marketing the property, and advising the seller on the best offers received for the listing. A Hudson seller’s agent must hold an active license in the State of New Hampshire under the New Hampshire Real Estate Commission. They may also be referred to as a listing agent. 

A real estate agent is expected to make the home selling or buying process easier for you. Here are some things you should expect from a seller’s agent.

Price Your Hudson Home Right

Pricing your South Hudson NH home for sale properly is very important when you are a seller’s agent. An exceptional agent will price a home using their knowledge, training, and understanding of the market and comparable sales in the surrounding area. Knowing how to price a home for sale is one of the many valuable skills a REALTOR® can give you as the seller. If you are a smart seller, you will find an agent that will price your home based on the selling price of other similar homes that have recently sold in South Hudson.

If you have updated your home, then it will most likely be priced for more than you bought it for but it all depends on the current market. Currently, we are in a seller’s market and prices are rising yearly. As a seller, you should be aware that pricing your South Hudson home for sale to high can cause problems with the sale. If your Hudson home for sale is priced too high, buyers will most likely look elsewhere.

Communication is Key

A well-trained Hudson sellers agent must communicate properly with the seller. You need to know what’s going on with the sale of your South Hudson NH home. There are too many real estate agents that will only check in when they receive an offer, and that is not proper etiquette as an real estate agent. Real estate agents should always keep in touch with their sellers, especially after a showing so they can give any feedback, or discuss any concerns with you about your South Hudson home for sale.

Even if there aren’t any offers on your home, it is still comforting for your agent to keep in touch so you know you are getting what you’re paying good money for!

Verify Buyer Qualifications

Anyone can say that they are interested in purchasing a Hudson home for sale, but not everyone can get a pre-approval for a home loan. A good sellers agent will be sure that anyone making an offer on your home is qualified, and pre-approved for a home loan, and if not they will kindly decline their offer until they provide proof.

There is a very big difference between a mortgage pre-qualification and a pre-approval. A pre-qualification means that they are qualified, but that doesn’t mean that they will be approved for the loan. A pre-approval means that the lender checked the buyers credit report, as well as their employment, and their income, which are key factors in getting a loan commitment. Loan commitment is the step just before closing, it means that the bank is agreeing to lend the buyer the money for their South Hudson home purchase.

Negotiate for You

Your seller’s agent should always negotiate and work their hardest for the best terms and conditions of the seller. When you hire an agent who isn't worried about when their next sale takes place, you will get much better advice, and a much better outcome. REALTORS® who advocate for their clients are always striving for the best possible terms for the transaction and their client.

Everything in a real estate contract is negotiable, and a good Hudson seller's agent won't hesitate to take an offer for your South Hudson home for sale that will make you happy. If you want the sale of your South Hudson home to be closed at a certain time, they have the negotiation skills to make that happen. It’s best to negotiate this all at the onset to make sure everyone will be on the same page for closing. A good agent will understand the importance of getting things done on time and in an orderly fashion for you, their seller.

Attend the Home Inspection

A seller's agent should attend the home inspection to be sure that they can properly represent you properly. This is why you are paying a REALTOR®, to make things easier for you when selling your South Hudson home for sale. Although you may not expect them to attend the home inspection, they should do it regardless. Your agent can keep track of everything that the inspector states about the home, as well as see anything they may find wrong.

This will also help your sellers agent to protect you from any unreasonable requests, and help them to hear everything first hand. Some buyers may try to exaggerate about everything in hopes that you will make any repairs needed, or that they will be able to purchase your South Hudson home cheaper than the listed price. Home inspections often become the second time where more negotiations are made on your South Hudson home for sale.

Finalize Loose Ends

Selling a Hudson home for sale involves a lot of work. Your REALTOR® must be on top of everything. There are many small details that must be taken care of which is a big selling point for their services. As you get closer and closer to closing your Hudson home for sale, your real estate agent needs to relieve your stress and take care of all the loose ends for you. The less work you have to do, the more appealing your REALTOR® will be. Then you will be more likely to recommend their services to others seeking a real estate agent to help them sell or buy a South Hudson home.

If you are looking to buy or sell a home in South Hudson or in the surrounding area give us a call. The agents at Harmony Real Estate will keep your best interests in mind.

If you are looking for a Hudson seller’s agent we would love to be your first choice.

Find a South Hudson NH Short Sale REALTOR®

A short sale is a sale of Real Estate in which the net proceeds from selling your Hudson home for sale will fall short of the debts you owe to your lender for your mortgage. In this case, if all lien holders agree to accept less than the amount owed on the debt, a sale of your South Hudson NH home for sale can be made.

When you sell your South Hudson home as a short sale, it’s similar to other sales you just have to involve the bank’s decision as well. You should contact a REALTOR®, specifically one who specializes in short sales. You will need to list your Hudson home for sale being sure to mention that it's a “short sale,” then wait for an offer to come in. Once you accept an offer, things can get tricky. You will need to gather all of your financial documents to send to your mortgage company and see if they will consider the short sale. Since lenders lose money with short sales, they're usually not very eager to agree with it but that’s where your REALTOR and a short sale negotiator come into play working in your best interest. Some banks may prefer to foreclose on your Hudson home but many times they will consider the short sale if there is good reason.

There are many Pro’s and Con’s to a short sale, but again a real estate agent can help you decide whether you should short sale, or what your other options are. If you do short sale your home, make sure your loan will be considered paid in full. A short sale will have a much smaller effect on your credit than a foreclosure. This will help you in the long run if you ever try to take out another loan or mortgage. Avoiding foreclosure, means you may be able to buy another home sooner than you would be able to if your home was foreclosed on.

However, there are also some disadvantages to a short sale. You will have to take full responsibility for the sale of you home, which can be very stressful and time consuming. Also, if someone purchases your home faster than you expected, you may have to move sooner than you had originally planned. This means that you will now need to find yourself somewhere else to move to as quickly as possible. This may be very difficult for you considering there will be no proceeds from the short sale of your South Hudson home.

If you are having a hard time making the decision of whether or not a short sale is your best option, talk to a Real Estate Attorney, or a REALTOR® to figure out the best plan of action. They can help guide you in the right direction. Be sure you don’t forget to talk to you lender as well. Your lender likely has specialized loan officers who are capable of reviewing and guiding customers who are at risk of foreclosure.

Call Harmony Real Estate at (603) 883-8840 and speak to the top REALTORS® in Southern New Hampshire if you need advice on whether or not to short sale your South Hudson home! We will work in your best interest and help you on this stressful journey in your life.

How to deal with Mold in your South Nashua home

Mold, that’s definitely a word that no one ever wants to hear. The word can put terror into the eyes of any homeowner. After all, it can make you and your family sick, as well as weaken your walls, floors, and ceilings.


Here is what you should do if you have mold in your South Nashua home.

The first step is to test for mold

This is something that no homeowner wants to hear, but if you suspect you have mold in your home, you need to test it to be sure of what kind of mold it is. Mold testing can be very expensive, but if you are deeply suspicious of what's in your walls, it is worth it. You could also buy a kit to test for mold yourself but they have a reputation for being unreliable, so getting an expert to take a look at your South Nashua home for sale is in your best interest.

What to do if you find mold

If mold is found in your South Nashua home, don’t panic just yet. Every home has mold in it, but some homes are worse than others. If it is a small area less than 10 square feet, you could try to remove it yourself. Although, this isn’t the best idea, it is possible. Be sure to wear gloves, and a face mask, and goggles in a well ventilated room if you are going to try to tackle the removal yourself with chemicals. If it is to big of an area for you to clean yourself, or you just don’t have the time, make sure to call a professional. You are always better safe than sorry! 

Stay Vigilant

Even if you aren’t aware of any toxic mold in your home, always keep an eye out for it. Keeping mold away from your South Nashua homes comes down to simple maintenance. If you have any dampness in your South Nashua home, it is possible that there will be mold. Be sure to look in any dark, damp places.

These are some simple ways to keep mold away from your South Nashua home for sale:

  1. Caulk around water fixtures
    Sinks and bathtubs all have signs of mold. Be sure you caulk around the faucets in your sink, and your shower in your kitchen, bathroom, or any other rooms. Make sure to clean out any discolored caulking to make sure it doesn’t turn into another problem.

  1. Clean your gutters
    You were planning to do this anyhow, right? Well, here is your chance to get it accomplished! Water pooling in your gutters due to a clog can leak into your walls causing mold to grow in them. Make sure to clean out any gutters that can cause this problem before it starts.

  2. Check your windows
    Make sure there are no leaks from your windows. You can caulk around the outside of your windows to prevent water coming in after a lot of rain, or snow. The spring is usually the best time to do this when the weather starts to get warmer, and the snow starts melting.

  3. Take care of your roof
    Is your roof leaking? If your roof is leaking, you would notice that of course! However, you might not go in the attic often. Make sure to  check the attic periodically, especially after it rains heavily to see if you have any leaks in your South Nashua roof. If you do be sure to get it taken care of right away to prevent mold from growing. This is the typical place where mold will start and home owners are not aware so make sure to take a peak in your South Nashua attic from time to time.

  4. Check the crawl space
    Do you have a crawl space under your home? Just like the attic, the crawl space is not a common place you go. Be sure to get under the house from time to time to check and see if there is any water collecting there. If there is, you need to be sure to drain it, as water pooling under your house won't only lead to mold, but structural problems as well. And neither are a good problem to have in your South Nashua home for sale.

With all that you have learned from this article, you will know exactly what to do if you find or suspect mold in your home! For more information on addressing other problems in your home give us a call or view our other articles at www.Harmony-RE.com.

How to Get Rid of Squirrels in Your South Hudson Home

Are you looking for a way to get rid of squirrels in your attic? You may not know where to start when you figure out that the thumping sounds in your attic are coming from squirrels. If you are looking to sell your South Hudson home and you have pests in your attic the buyers will definitely want them gone fast. 


Although an exterminator is trained to get rid of pests such as squirrels, bats, mice, ants or even more it can also be very expensive. If you are worried that you are doing it properly you should always contact a professional but may not always be required.


Here are some great tips on how you can get rid of squirrels from your South Hudson home for sale on your own, without having to break your bank!


Block Their Entrance

Find out where the squirrels are entering into your South Hudson home’s attic and cover any holes so no more squirrels can get in, except for one so they can use it to exit your home. Cover your chimney with wire mesh if you have one so no more squirrels can get in. Also be sure to secure any openings from your attic to the rest of your South Hudson home so any panic stricken squirrels don’t try to flee into the rest of your home.


You want to make sure every possible entry point is blocked so they don’t regain entry once you have them out!


Create An Exit

Create a funnel out of metal or wire mesh and be sure the funnel is about 1 foot long, an about a foot wide. Attach the wide end of the funnel to the hole on the outside of your South Hudson’s home. Usually if the animal can leave out of the small hole, they will be able to re-enter as well, so just be careful. Try placing some food such as apple slices or peanuts at the hole of the opening to draw the squirrels out, or just wait for them to leave on their own to gather food.


Once they are out make sure to board up the hole or put mesh on it so that can’t regain entry.


Trapping Squirrels

You can usually find a trap at your local hardware store. When purchasing a trap for a squirrel please keep in mind that in a larger cage the squirrel may begin to panic and harm themselves. Usually a cage that is 6 inches, by 6 inches, by 18 inches will be perfect for a small animal like a squirrel. Read the directions that come with the trap and be sure you know how to set it properly!


Put some food in the cage that appeals to a squirrel such as peanut butter, apple slices, peanuts, soda crackers, or pieces of bread crust otherwise the squirrels may not even go near the trap. Make sure the food is placed far enough inside the cage so the animal can’t grab it through the sides.


Set it up, and wait for the trap to work its magic.


Catch, then Release

Once you have trapped the squirrel, you will need to release it. But first, be sure to check your South Hudson attic for baby squirrels. The babies will be helpless without their mother, and you will need to relocate them with her so they don’t die. The best thing for you to do is relocate them far away from your South Hudson’s home for sale in a wooded area where they can hopefully find their new home in a tree, rather than inside your attic.


Make sure you wear thick heavy gloves when you are releasing the squirrel from the trap. If the squirrel is angry, you wouldn’t want to get bit, or attacked. You can also use a string or rope to open the cage from a distance.



Make sure they don't come back

Be sure to keep the trap filled with food in your South Hudson attic for a few weeks longer to be sure all the squirrels have left your home. Patch up the holes in your home as well so they can’t try to re-enter. Try leaving your attic light on, or purchase some squirrel repellent from the store, rags soaked in household ammonia work too. Also, leaving a radio on in your attic, or purchasing an ultrasonic repellent may work for you as well.



If you are looking for more tips on how to get rid of pests or other animals in your South Hudson home for sale give us a call or check out our other articles on getting rid of pests in your home.

Don’t Let the Home Inspection Kill the Deal for Your South Nashua home for sale

Hiring a home inspector is a very important part of your home buying process. When you are choosing an inspector to check out your South Nashua home for you, be sure to ask them how much experience they have. You don’t want to hire someone with a poor inspection background because they may miss something very important!


Typically, an inspection report is 20 or more pages long. Most inspectors, and Real Estate agents think the buyer should use the inspection to generate a list of repairs that should be accomplished. If the seller is aware of these issues beforehand they should work on any major repairs before they sell their South Nashua home to make it more valuable. If the buyer doesn't like the results of an inspection report, they have the right to ask the owner to fix the items, keep it as is or exit the contract and look for a new home. Typically the buyer and the seller will come to an agreement on what repairs will be remedied and move toward a closing on their South Nashua home for sale.

What a buyer usually doesn’t always realize is that once they find a new home, they will have to pay for that home to be inspected as well. Inspections range from about $300-$500 and they are non-refundable. If there are problems with the home you want to purchase, you should decide how much those repairs will cost before you leave the contract. If yo can't come to a reasonable agreement with the seller it may be better to find a new South Nashua home for sale and pay for another inspection. However, you never know if the next home you find will have more issues than the previous one, or not.

When purchasing a home that is being sold to you by the owner, you need to remember that it is not a brand new home. Used homes that have been lived in will have some wear and tear on the home. If you are looking for something perfect, definitely consider looking into a brand new home. Instead of breaking a deal over repairs, it would make more sense to buy a home warranty in the event that something breaks. There are home warranties available for under $500! Some sellers may even be willing to pay for a home warranty instead of repairs.

Unfortunately, some home inspectors lack people skills, and fail to explain their findings properly. There have been some complaints about home inspectors who use verbiage in their reports such as “may in the future,” or “could potentially.” The words “may” and “potentially” mean that there is a possibility of something happening, not a guarantee. When people are getting houses inspected, they want to know exactly what is wrong, and what to do to fix it. What inspectors don’t seem to understand is that buyers take these statements as “ you’re house is falling apart” or “don’t buy this!”

To be sure a home inspector won’t kill your South Nashua deal, it's important that buyers and sellers use an experienced agent. Also, make sure you ask questions about the inspection. If they use words like “may” or “potentially” ask the inspector why they said that. Have them explain to you why they think something could go wrong with whatever object they stated, in the future. Be sure your agent shows up at the inspection to help you ask those needed questions.

The purpose of a home inspection is not to have the seller fix every single item in the contained report, that would be unreasonable, but more so to help the buyer see any huge issues that make the cost of the house go down. Buyers have the right to ask the sellers to fix something, but sellers also have the right to say no. There are always going to be a list of repairs that need to be fixed in your South Nashua home but the sellers are not going to be willing to fix every leaky faucet or toilet flange but more likely to fix a leaking roof or failed septic. It is more reasonable to understand this information about your South Nashua home for sale at the onset.

Don’t let the home inspector break your deal! Be sure that the home inspector and the buyers agent are present for you as a buyer to ask questions. They can help you understand things you don't understand about the home. It could be as simple as where a light switch may be, or how to turn on the lights to the pool or more complicated like finding the shut valves or changing the settings on your water heater. That way you don't worry about items that may not even be broken.
