Realtor Success Seminar: Understanding Property Taxes

Property taxes. . .   seems like a very basic topic for a webinar.  The fact of the matter is home buyers are facing huge potential property tax increases on the homes they are purchasing right now.  This is due to the surge in home values.  Current home owners are protected by state laws that cap the amount a taxable value can increase.  However, home buyers are not allotted that same protection.   When a property sells in Michigan, the assessor will uncap the taxable value the following year.   They may also increase the state equalized value.

What does that all mean in plain English?  To put it bluntly, it means that the borrower could receive a love letter from there mortgage lender jacking the house payment up hundreds of dollars.  As real estate professionals, we need to be able to advise our customers on what might happen the years following their purchase.  During this event you will learn all about property taxes, so that you have the knowledge to help your buyers make informed decisions.

HOT TOPICS WE WILL COVER

Here is a list of some of the things we will dive into during the event:

  • Basic Definitions: TCV, SEV, TV, etc. . .
  • Understanding the BS&A information
  • Hand calculating potential property tax increases using the millage rates for a specific property
  • The dreaded love letter increasing the payment
  • Homestead vs Non-homestead taxes the actual difference
  • Escrow accounts
  • Escrow Shortages
  • Property Tax Appeals

Come learn from one of the best!  Speaker Jeremy Drobeck at Treadstone Mortgage has helped thousands of home buyers navigate their way to home ownership.  He brings a wealth of knowledge on the topic. Jeremy has successfully appealed property taxes on many of his own properties over the years at both board of review and the state tax tribunal.   He’s calculated property taxes on a daily basis for many years on thousands of properties.

By the end of this event you will be able to figure out what the future taxes on a home would be with nothing but a calculator while you are standing in kitchen of a home you are showing.    For more info on property taxes right now click here.  If you need help with anything between now and our next event don’t hesitate to reach out.   Can wait to see you there!

OPTIONS FOR EVERY HOME BUYER

AS A REALTOR, HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY BUYERS FIT INTO ONE PROGRAM VS ANOTHER?

Every home buyers scenario is different.  When first meeting with a buyer we take a deep dive into there personal financial information.  The personal financial information is going to determine our limits for the different loan programs.  However, there is much more to it.  When we meet we also go over their wants, dreams, and future goals.  Here are just a handful of questions that then help to determine the loan program.
