Filing for Florida Homestead in 2019… 

The TIMELY Filing Deadline is Approaching! 
The timely filing period for Homestead Exemption for 
2019 is March 2, 2018 through March 1, 2019. The absolute deadline to 
LATE FILE 

 for any 2019 exemption — if you miss the March 1 timely filing deadline — is September 18, 2019. State law (Sec. 196.011(8), Fla. Stat.) does not allow late filing for exemptions after this date, regardless of any good cause reason for missing the late filing deadline.
All legal Florida residents are eligible for a Homestead Exemption on their homes, condominiums, co-op apartments, and certain mobile home lots if they qualify. The Florida Constitution provides this tax-saving exemption on the first and third $25,000 of the assessed value of an owner/occupied residence. While a complicated formula is used to explain this — as the additional $25,000 only applies to the non-schools portion of your tax bill. Read More
   
The basic homestead exemption saved a Broward homeowner in 2018 anywhere from $658.60 to $1,035.30 (depending upon your city’s millage rate) in annual tax savings for all homes with a value of $75,000 or higher.
  
Homeowners are entitled to a Homestead Exemption if, as of January 1st, they have made the property their permanent home.   By law, January 1 of each year is the date on which permanent residence is determined
  
Homeowners may file for Homestead ONLINEby going to bcpa.net in Broward County, and clicking the large yellow button in the navigation menu on the top left side of the page.  Homeowners  may also file by visiting the Property Appraiser’s office at 115 South Andrews Ave, Room 111, Ft. Lauderdale or at one of the County’s community outreach events, (visit BCPA.net website for calendar dates and locations).
  
What You Need When Filing for Homestead
When filing an application you must bring the following items listed below. To claim 100% coverage, all owners occupying the property as Tenants in Common (i.e., proportional share co-owners) must file in person on jointly held property. In the case of a husband/wife (“Tenants by the Entirety”) or Joint Tenants with Right of Survivorship (“JTRS”), any one owner may qualify for 100% coverage — although it is always highly advisable to have all eligible owner-occupants to file.
  1. Proof of Ownership:
  In general, the recorded Deed or Co-op Proprietary Lease must be held in the name(s) of the individuals applying for Homestead. You do not need to bring a copy of the deed or co-op lease if the document has already been recorded in the Official Records of Broward County. If the PROPERTY IS HELD IN A TRUST, WE ALSO NEED EITHER A NOTARIZED CERTIFICATE OF TRUST ORA COMPLETE COPY OF THE TRUST AGREEMENT. Note: Most taxpayers prefer to use the simple Certificate of Trust form, instead of submitting the entire trust for our review, as it better protects the privacy of your estate planning and other financial matters.
 
  1.   Proof of Permanent Florida Residence — preferably dated prior to January 1 of the tax year for which you are filing — is established in the form of:
    1. FOR ALL APPLICANTS: Florida’s Driver’s License (or — for non-drivers only — a Florida I.D. Card) is REQUIRED. Note: You must surrender to DMV any out-of-state regular driver’s license. You MUST also have either of the following:
      1. Florida Voter’s Registration; or
      2. Recorded Declaration of Domicile.
    2. FOR NON-US CITIZENS, you MUST have the items listed above AND proof of permanent residency, asylum/parolee status (or other “PRUCOL” status); OR proof you are the parent of a US-born (US Citizen) minor child who resides with you.
  1.   If you or your married spouse have a Homestead Exemption in any other county, state or country
(or an equivalent permanent residency-based exemption or tax credit, such as New York’s “S.T.A.R.” exemption) on another property you also currently own, you will NOT be eligible for a homestead in Broward until after you surrender the exemption in that other jurisdiction. 
If you maintain an exemption on another property elsewhere it is FRAUD!
The State-approved application form requests certain information for all owners living on the premises and filing:
  •  Current employers of all owners
  •  Addresses listed on last I.R.S. income tax returns.
  •  Date of each owner’s permanent Florida residence.
  •  Date of occupancy for each property owner.
  •  Social Security numbers of all owners filing.
  • Social Security number of any married spouse of the applicant, even if the spouse is not named in the deed and is not filing).
Note: The amount of the homestead exemption protection granted to an owner residing on a particular property is to be applied against the amount of that person’s interest in the property. This provision is limited in that the proportional amount of the homestead exemption allowed any person shall not exceed the proportionate assessed valuation based on the interest owned by the person. For example, assuming a property valued at $40,000, with the residing owner’s interest in the property being $20,000, then $20,000 of the homestead exemption is all that can be applied to that property. If there are multiple owners, all as joint tenants with rights of survivorship, the owner living at property filing receives the full exemption.

Importance of Pricing your home correctly from the Start
When a home first come on the market, is when agents and buyers are most enthusiastic to find out what the home has to offer. Therefore, it is very important to price the home correctly. A home that is priced at market value or below will receive multiple showings and hopefully several offers. In a buyer’s market, a home that is over-priced will sit until a price reduction takes place. (Buyers’ market is more than six months of inventory based on closed sales. Sellers’ market is less than three months of inventory based on closed sales.) In a seller’s market, when inventory is low, properties may be priced over market and sold at a higher value, However, other condition and factors may apply.)

A home that has been sitting on the market for an extended period of time raises a red flag. What is an extended period of time? Let’s say that the average days on market in a particular subdivision is 30 days. If the home that is for sale has been on the market for 90 days, that raises the red flag “Why has it been sitting on the market so long?” “What is the problem?” When the home has been on the market longer than the average days on market, buyers see this as an opportunity to make a lower offer.
There real estate market has a rhythm all its own and it is very important that Sellers know the nuances of the local market. Real Estate pricing is very local. It’s also important  that the Seller realizes that negotiating is not just about price, it is also about terms.
Usually as a home lingers on the market more properties enter the market and now there are many properties for buyers to choose from, all wanting a good deal. This is where the old adage “Your first offer is your best offer” comes into play. There is a strong argument for the basic principal of: Take the first goodoffer and work with it!
Janice Zaltman

A Tip in Achieving the Best Price for the Sale of Your Home
All homeowners want to make sure they realize the Best Price when selling their
home. But how do you guarantee that you obtain maximum value for your house? Here is
a tip to insure you get the highest price possible:
Price it a LITTLE LOW
This may seem counter intuitive. However, just look at this concept for a moment. Many
homeowners think that pricing their home a little OVER market value will leave them room for negotiation. In actuality, this just dramatically lessens the demand for the house.

Instead of the seller trying to ‘win’ the negotiation with one buyer, they should price it so
demand for the home is maximized. Hence, the seller will not be fighting with a buyer
over the price but instead will have multiple buyers fighting with each other over the house.
realtor.com, has given this advice: “Aim to price your property at or just slightly below the going rate. Today’s buyers are highly informed, so if they sense they’re getting a deal, they’re likely to bid up a property that’s slightly underpriced, especially in areas with low inventory.”
