Twitter Officially Doubles Its Character Count

Twitter Officially Doubles Its Character Count

Twitter Officially Doubles Its Character Count

Twitter Officially Doubles Its Character Count

Twitter’s approximately 330 million users can now send tweets on that are up to 280 characters in length, Twitter announced Tuesday. That is double its previous limit of 140 characters.

In September, Twitter tested longer tweets on a small group of users. The company says they found those with an expanded character limit spent less time editing their tweets, spent more time on Twitter, and interacted with more users on the social network.

“We saw when people needed to use more than 140 characters, they tweeted more easily and more often,” Aliza Rosen, a company product manager, wrote in a blog. “More space makes it easier for people to fit thoughts in a tweet, so they could say what they want to say, and send tweets faster than before.”

Twitter, which launched in 2006, first adopted the 140-character limit because it was close to the maximum that could fit in mobile text messages. Smartphones now allow for more expanded views.

Investors Eye Parking Spaces for Bigger Profit

Investors Eye Parking Spaces for Bigger Profit

Investors Eye Parking Spaces for Bigger Profit

Investors Eye Parking Spaces for Bigger Profit

Real estate investors are utilizing parking spaces as lucrative investments in some major metros across the country. Buying up individual parking spaces is garnering greater interest among small investors who are looking for a low-maintenance investment with potentially big profits, The New York Times reports. For investors, parking spaces can offer a steady income, nearly zero maintenance, and limited damage to worry about.

“It’s a great investment idea for individuals or small groups, for sure,” Keith Bawolek, chief executive of Vermillion Realty Advisors in Chicago, told The New York Times. The company specializes in acquiring multimillion-dollar garages and parking for institutional investors. “There are opportunities in every market. You just have to be diligent and understand the right entry point for you as an investor.”

Real estate investor Betty Jones, for example, purchased three parking spots in Washington, D.C.’s Dupont Circle for $37,000 each last year. All three combined net her about $700 a month in profits, after paying property taxes and a garage fee.

The investment is “a lot less hassle than an apartment, too,” Jones told The New York Times.

Investors may see the largest parking space profits in several big cities. For instance, top average rates are about $600 a month in New York. The most expensive places in the U.S. to park are New York, Boston, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Seattle, and Chicago.

Investors are finding parking spaces may appreciate more whether the overall real estate market is softening or not—there’s a high demand for parking, they say. Some municipalities don’t offer enough parking in urban areas, leaving some residents willing to pay generously for a limited number of spots.

However, some experts warn the parking spot investment may have a limited future. For instance, if more people start driving electric cars, spaces without charging stations may become less desirable. Ride-hailing apps, like Uber and Lyft, may also limit the need for parking in some urban areas.

Mortgage Rates Mostly Flat This Week

Mortgage Rates Mostly Flat This Week

 

Mortgage Rates Mostly Flat This Week

Mortgage Rates Mostly Flat This Week

Mortgage rates mostly held steady this week after posting a sizable jump last week.

“Following a strong surge last week, rates held relatively flat this week,” says Sean Becketti, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “The 30-year mortgage rate remained unchanged at 3.94 percent, while the 10-year Treasury yield dipped roughly 4 basis points. The markets’ reaction to the upcoming announcement of the next Fed chair may impact the movement of rates in next week’s survey.”

Freddie mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending Nov. 2:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages; averaged 3.94 percent, with an average 0.5 point, the same average as last week. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 3.54 percent.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.27 percent this week, with an average 0.5 point, rising from last week’s 3.25 percent average. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 2.84 percent.
  • 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 3.23 percent, with an average 0.5 point, rising from last week’s 3.21 percent average. A year ago, 5-year ARMs averaged 2.87 percent.

Tax Reform Bill Would Cap MID for New Mortgages

Tax Reform Bill Would Cap MID for New Mortgages

Tax Reform Bill Would Cap MID for New Mortgages

Tax Reform Bill Would Cap MID for New Mortgages

The Republican leadership in the House has released its long-awaited bill to reform the nation’s tax code, and it raises significant concerns for middle-class homeowners because of limits on the mortgage interest deduction and the deductions for property taxes and state and local taxes.

“This legislation closely tracks with the House Republican blueprint for tax reform released this spring, which threatens home values and takes money straight from the pockets of middle income homeowners,” said NAR President William E. Brown. “REALTORS® believe in the promise of lower tax rates, but this bill is nowhere near as good a deal as the one middle-class homeowners get under current law. Tax hikes and falling home prices are a one-two punch that homeowners simply can’t afford.”

Based on a preliminary look at a summary of the bill, the MID cap would not affect current homeowners, but people who would become homeowners later would only be able to claim the MID ot the extent the mortgage on their primary residence is $500,000 or less. The current limit is $1 million.

In another provision, hurdles would be added to the capital gains exclusion most home sellers can take on the sale of their principal residence. Currently, the limit is $500,000 for a married couple filing jointly. The bill would eliminate the deduction for state and local income taxes. And while taxpayers would continue to have the option to deduct their property taxes, the deduction would be capped at $10,000.

Tax brackets consolidated

The bill, called the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” would consolidate today’s seven tax brackets into four: A top rate of 39.6 percent for the highest earners, which is unchanged from the current top rate, and three other brackets with rates of 12, 25, and 35 percent.

In addition, the standard deduction would be almost doubled, to $24,000 for a married couple filing jointly, and half this amount for single filers. However, the personal exemption and exemptions for dependents would be folded into that higher deduction, negating most of its benefits, especially for larger families.

For businesses, the framework calls for lowering the top corporate rate to 20 percent from 35 percent. It would lower the top tax rate for so-called “pass-through entities” to 25 percent. Pass-through entities are taxed through the individual code and include limited liability companies, S corporations, and partnerships such as law firms and investment groups. Rules are included to limit who would get the 25 percent pass-through rate. Other provisions would affect expensing of some depreciable business assets and the deductibility of interest on business loans for corporations.

Changes to the bill could be made before it’s formally taken up in the House Ways and Means Committee, which is expected to happen on Monday. Senate consideration could soon follow.

Seller Negotiation Tactics That Can Backfire

Seller Negotiation Tactics That Can Backfire

Seller Negotiation Tactics That Can Backfire

Seller Negotiation Tactics That Can Backfire

Homeowners should not become overconfident in a seller’s market, or they might end up sabotaging their sale. Realtor.com® recently featured common home seller negotiation tactics that can backfire, including:

Starting a bidding war.

“If mishandled, people may assume the worst, and the best offer may walk away,” Sep Niakan, broker-owner at HB Roswell Realty in Miami, told realtor.com®. For example, bidding war problems can surface when failing to clearly explain up front how you intend to handle multiple offers or when you give an offer deadline that is too many days away (some buyers may just move on).

Arguing over repairs.

Buyers may walk if sellers refuse to make repairs that turn up during a home inspection. The seller needs to carefully consider how good the offer is before refusing to make repairs, says Lucas Machado, president of House Heroes in Miami. “When the buyer’s offer is high, and the seller tries to negotiate away from legitimate repairs, the buyer may feel the seller is taking advantage of them,” he says.

Staying adamant about the closing date. 

Sellers may be trying to make the closing date so it perfectly aligns when they move into their new home. But buyers have scheduling issues of their own, too. “Sellers need to understand that they may have to move twice, since buyer and seller schedules seldom work out perfectly,” says John Powell, chief development officer at Help-U-Sell Real Estate in Tucson, Ariz.

Getting greedy over fixtures.

Fixture feuds are common ones. Sellers and their real estate agents need to carefully review before they list their home on what stays and what goes with the home. The buyer might “get so upset that a fixture they fell in love with is now missing that they won’t buy the home,” says Michael Hottman, associate broker at Keller Williams Richmond West in Richmond, Va. Replace anything valuable to sellers that won’t be staying with the house before showing it, or be willing to negotiate a comparable replacement. Read more: Fixture Feuds

5 Horrors at Home Showings

5 Horrors at Home Showings

 

5 Horrors at Home Showings

5 Horrors at Home Showings

From the artwork to the odor, your listing may be inadvertently giving buyers the creeps. Realtor.com® recently interviewed real estate professionals about the items that have scared off their buyers the most during showings. Here are the top five spooks.

  1. Doors with too many locks. If the doors have more than the standard two locks, your buyer may wonder if something happened on the premises to make the seller feel unsafe, says Glenn Phillips, CEO of Lake Homes Realty in Birmingham, Ala. “Given a choice, most people won’t buy in places they think are unsafe,” he says.
  2. Taxidermy. A single deer head may pass muster in some areas, but taxidermy runs the risk of making some buyers uncomfortable. “One house I helped stage had a stuffed bighorn sheep in the dining room and a stuffed bear in the family room,” says Amy Bly of Great Impressions Home Staging/Interiors in Montville, N.J.
  3. Questionable art choices. Any artwork displayed should be neutral and carry no risk of offending or confusing potential buyers. Jeff Miller, cofounder of AE Home Group in Baltimore, recalls a seller who was obsessed with feet and displayed framed paintings and sculptures of feet—and even keychains with feet on them. “I told the seller to get their feet out of the picture,” Miller says.
  4. Obvious DIY repairs. Amateur repair work that’s left half done can prove to be a big turnoff to buyers. “I once encountered a little house of horrors that actually had caution tape across a very outdated bathroom with a hole in the floor,” Bly told realtor.com®. The home also had “dark rooms with lights that didn’t work, as well as nonfunctioning appliances in the kitchen.”
  5. Odd smells. Pet odors, mold, or musty smells can also give buyers the creeps. “Almost every home has a unique smell, and the owners rarely realize it,” says Jerry Koller, a sales associate with International Home Realty in Irvine, Calif. “Of course, it’s smart to try remedies such as Febreze or candles. But sometimes, you just need to replace carpet before putting your house on the market.”
