Charleston SC Real Estate Blog :  How the 2013 Fiscal Cliff Deal Affects Real Estate


Most everyone in the United States is aware that the US congress passed a bill to avoid the so called Fiscal Cliff.  Below are the highlights of the bill’s impact on Real Estate:

1.  Mortgage Cancellation Relief is extended for one year to January, 2014

2.  Mortgage Interest Deduction remains unchanged

3. Deduction for Mortgage Insurance Premiums for filers making below    $110,000 is extended through 2013 and made retroactive to cover 2012

4. Leasehold Improvements: The 15 year straight-line cost recovery for   qualified leasehold on commercial properties extended through 2013 and made retroactive to cover 2012

4. Energy Efficiency Tax Credit: The 10% tax credit (up to $500) for homeowners for energy efficiency improvements to existing homes is extended through 2013 and made retroactive to cover 2012

5.  Return of the Pease Limitations
The Pease Limitations are permanently repealed for most tax payers.   The limitations will only apply to individuals earning more than $250,000 and joint filers earning more than $300,000. The thresholds are indexed for inflation and will rise over time.

6. Capital Gains rate stays at 15% for those individual filers earning       $400,000 or joint filers earning $450,000. After that any gains above those amounts will be taxed at 20%. The 250/500k exclusion for sale of principle residence remains in place.

7. Estate Tax: The first $5 million in individual estates and $10 million for family estates are now exempted from the estate tax. After that, the rate will be 40%, up from 35%. The exemption amounts are indexed for inflation.

Charleston SC Homes For Sale : December 2012 National Housing Trends

Charleston SC Homes For Sale : December 2012 National Housing Trends

Improving Housing Market Likely to Continue into 2013

This year’s gains in the housing market are likely to continue into 2013, according to the latest Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance HousingPulse Tracking
Survey results.

A combination of factors, including declining time-on-market, a drop in distressed properties and rising average home prices, are all pointing to a
strengthening housing market in the months ahead.

Separately, real estate agents are expressing mixed opinions on the impact of a possible reduction or elimination of the mortgage interest deduction in 2013.
Most warn that a change would “devastate” the housing market, while others predict only a modest impact on home sales.

The November HousingPulse findings show homes are selling at a relatively brisk pace. Time-on-market for non-distressed homes averaged 12.2 weeks last
month, down from 14.5 weeks a year earlier.

One big factor having a positive impact on the housing market, particularly home prices, is a continuing decline in distressed properties.

The HousingPulse Distressed Property Index dropped to its lowest level in three years in November. Just 33.7% of the home purchase transactions tracked last month
involved distressed properties.

This was down from 41.4% a year earlier and from a record-high of 45.6% in March 2011.  Learn more about the December 2012 National Housing Trends here.
