Record Improvements Now

There is a significant difference in how the money you spend on your home is treated for income tax purposes.  Repairs to maintain your home’s condition are not deductible unlike rental property owners who can deduct repairs as an operating expense.

On the other hand, capital improvements to a home will increase the basis and affect the gain when you sell which may save taxes.

Additions to a home or other improvements that have a useful life of more than one year may be considered an increase to basis or cost of the home.  Other increases to basis may include special assessments for local improvements like sidewalks or streets and amounts spent after a casualty loss to restore damage that was not covered by insurance.

Unlike repairs, improvements add to the value of a home, prolong its useful life or adapt it to new uses.

You can read more about improvements and see examples beginning on the bottom of page 8 of IRS Publication 523.  For a form to keep track of money you spend, print this Improvement Register.

Starting a business in real estate, as a Realtor, is fairly simple, quick, and inexpensive compared to the costs of starting other types of businesses. Truth is, real estate is probably one of the lowest cost start up there is. Obtaining your license and paying the initial fees for the first year will run you about $1500. Maintaining your license afterwards with all the mandated fees will costs you around $1500 per year. What other kind of business can you start and run for this kind of money? And when it comes to income, the sky is the limit; you can build it as small or as large as you envision it. Really.

Keller Williams is looking to hire and train a select group of motivated Realtors. If you are looking to build a career in real estate, or looking to take your existing career to the next level, there is no better place to do so than the #1 Real Estate Brokerage in North America. At Keller Williams, our mission is to build careers worth having, businesses worth owning, and lives worth living. We can teach you the ins and outs of building a successful real estate business, and we offer the tools of the trade that will get you there. No experience necessary; We will train you!

2013: A Record Year for Keller Williams Realty!

2013 was a record year for Keller Williams and 2014 promises to be just as extraordinary. Training Magazine recently named Keller Williams #2 on its worldwide Training 125. The highest ranking real estate franchise on the list! In addition, Keller Williams Realty will share over $2.6 million in profits with KW associates for January 2014. That is the best profit sharing January in the history of KW by over 20%! In 2013, the company shared over $78,000,000 with its associates as we became the #1 company in the US and then in North America by agent count. In Lafayette alone, Keller Williams shared over $260,000 of profits with us last year. All of this as KW turned 30!
