The ‘Bonus Room’ Makes a Comeback

The ‘Bonus Room’ Makes a Comeback

 

The ‘Bonus Room’ Makes a Comeback

The ‘Bonus Room’ Makes a Comeback

Home builders and designers say demand is increasing for more flexible living spaces, giving rise once again to “bonus” or “multipurpose” rooms, The Wall Street Journal reports. Such rooms offer extra square footage for owners to create a space that fits their lifestyle. Baby boomers, for example, are showing interest in bonus rooms that could potentially serve as a first-floor master bedroom or suite.

Out of the 20 top-selling floor plans on Houseplans.com, 13 include bonus rooms, according to the site. However, only 14 percent of all plans the site offers contain such rooms. They are usually located off the entry hallway near the main living space and a bathroom. The location makes it easy to transform the space into an extra bedroom, if needed. Bonus rooms also may be located above the garage. Homeowners use these extra spaces for anything from an in-law suite to a home theater.

Some designers say real estate professionals shouldn’t label bonus rooms with a specific purpose when showing a home to their clients. Let buyers imagine for themselves how they’d use the room; this can also make the listing more appealing to them. “When you name it ‘dining room,’ they will always see it as a dining room; they will never get it out of their mind,” says Mark Mathis, co-owner of Hattiesburg, Miss.-based design firm House Plan Gallery. “We have found that labeling this type of area as ‘flex space’ on our floor plans best allows home buyers to decide how a particular space can be used to fit their specific family’s needs.”

Homeowners Face Tax Hike Under ‘Big 6’ Plan

Homeowners Face Tax Hike Under ‘Big 6’ Plan

Homeowners Face Tax Hike Under ‘Big 6’ Plan

Homeowners Face Tax Hike Under ‘Big 6’ Plan

Home ownership would no longer be a priority in the tax code if a reform plan released Wednesday by the Trump administration and congressional Republicans becomes law. The “Tax Reform Unified Framework,” known as the “Big 6” tax reform plan, is being touted as a way to cut taxes for the middle class. But it could hurt residential real estate by eliminating most itemized deductions in return for an increase in the standard deduction.

Although on its face, the change would seem to help many taxpayers by nearly doubling the standard deduction to $12,000 for single taxpayers and $24,000 for married couples, most middle-income homeowners who currently itemize would likely pay higher taxes, according to National Association of REALTORS® estimates. That’s because the repeal of most itemized deductions, including the deduction for state and local taxes, would exceed what people would gain under the higher standard deduction—even if the deductions for mortgage interest and charitable contributions are left in place, which the outline calls for. In addition, the personal and dependency exemptions that taxpayers take today would be folded into the higher standard deduction, eradicating their benefit.

NAR President William E. Brown said in a statement that REALTORS® favor tax reform without hurting home ownership and the transfer of real property, which are the backbone of the economy. “We have always said that tax reform—a worthy endeavor—should first do no harm to homeowners. The tax framework released by the Big 6 missed that goal. It recommends a backdoor elimination of the mortgage interest deduction for all but the top 5 percent, who would still itemize their deductions. When combined with the elimination of the state and local tax deduction, these efforts represent a tax increase on millions of middle-class homeowners.”

The framework calls for lowering the top individual tax rate from 39.6 percent to 35 percent and consolidating all other tax brackets into two, one with a tax rate of 25 percent and the other with a rate of 12 percent. A fourth bracket of above 35 percent could be added for the highest-income households, but the details of that weren’t specified. There are currently seven tax brackets in the code. In changes that would mainly affect wealthier taxpayers, the outline would eliminate the alternative minimum tax and the estate tax.

For corporations, the framework calls for lowering the top rate to 20 percent from 35 percent and lowering 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 would be drawn up to prevent people from classifying personal income as business income to get the 25 percent pass-through rate. Other provisions call for immediate expensing of depreciable business assets except structures, limited to five years, and limiting the deductibility of interest on business loans for corporations.

Among credits that are singled out for preserving—rather than repealing—is the low-income housing tax credit, which gives businesses an incentive to invest equity in housing developments that are affordable to low-income renters. The plan laid out no details on the fate of 1031 like-kind exchanges. However, the document specifies that many, if not most, business deductions will be curtailed or repealed.

The outline is the starting point for drafting legislation that lawmakers will eventually vote on. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), chair of the Senate Finance Committee, said at a hearing last week that he wants the process to be as bipartisan as possible. At that hearing, Iona Harrison, a real estate practitioner in Upper Marlboro, Md., testified that real estate must be protected because it’s essential to communities and economic growth. “We want to be sure the economic engine of home ownership and the transfer of real property in this country remain unfettered,” she said at the hearing.

Buy vs. Rent Index Still Leans Toward Buy

Buy vs. Rent Index Still Leans Toward Buy

Buy vs. Rent Index Still Leans Toward Buy

Buy vs. Rent Index Still Leans Toward Buy

 

Which is better for your clients: accumulating wealth through home equity or renting and investing their savings? That’s the fundamental question that the quarterly Beracha, Hardin & Johnson Buy vs. Rent (BH&J) Index aims to answer.

After examining 23 of the country’s largest metro areas in the second quarter, home buying still tops renting—but only slightly, and that has to do with prices.

The Detroit, New York, and St. Louis metro areas were the only ones where homeownership trended more favorably than renting. Meanwhile, the indices in the other 20 metro areas on the list moved toward renting to varying degrees, with some cities moving just marginally and others moving more dramatically in that direction.

Four cities are tipping into rent territory of the index—Miami, Pittsburgh, Portland and Seattle—namely because home prices have risen too high too quickly. Only two cities, Dallas and Denver, saw record index scores favoring renting. But William G. Hardin, index co-creator and director of the Hollo School of Real Estate at Florida International University, notes that housing development has not kept up with the massive job growth in these markets. That may change when development catches up, he says.

“While the trend is definitely in the direction of renting, many markets, namely in the Midwest, remain comfortably in buy territory,” says Eli Beracha, co-creator of the index and associate professor at FIU. “Prices in these markets should continue to rise without worry of overheating.”

Metro areas are scored between 1 and -1, with 1 strongly favoring renting, and -1 favoring homeownership, based on home price appreciation, rents, mortgage rates, and other investment data. The score for the U.S. as a whole (-.065 in the second quarter) could indicate housing prices continuing to rise, according to Ken Johnson, a real estate economist at FAU’s College of Business who also helped create the index. He adds that the data is comparable to 1999 levels. As the score moves closer to zero, that means there’s less difference between renting and ownership in terms of wealth accumulation. S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-City Home Price Index also recently showed an average annual increase in home prices of 5.7 percent, a level not seen since 2007.

4-Bedroom Houses to Lose Favor

4-Bedroom Houses to Lose Favor

4-Bedroom Houses to Lose Favor

4-Bedroom Houses to Lose Favor

Millennials’ desire for smaller homes may have a big impact on the future demand of some of the most popular homes today.

Young adults are getting married later in life, they’re delaying their first home purchase (often due to student loan debt) by up to seven years in some cases, and they’re also having children later in life.

The U.S. fertility rate has plunged to its lowest level since the Centers for Disease Control began tracking such data more than a 100 years ago. From 2011 to 2015, the number of 30- to 34-year-olds without children at home increased by 4 percent, according to Census data. Among 25- to 29-year-olds, the number increased by more than 5 percent.

What does this mean for housing? For millennials who remain childless, a large house with four or more bedrooms likely will no longer be as in demand. Households without children tend to prefer smaller homes, condos, or townhouses near city amenities rather than an oversized single-family home.

“The fact that we’re having smaller-size families I think naturally means that the demand for smaller-size housing would get greater interest than before,” Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of REALTORS®, told The Washington Post.

As baby boomers enter retirement and their adult children move out, many are expected to choose to downsize too. Economists predict that could add increased pressure to the market for smaller two-bedroom condos and townhouses.

Yet, the new-home market is staying focused on building bigger rather than smaller. Ninety percent of new single-family homes had three or more bedrooms in 2016.

Ways to Make Your Listing Look Bigger

Ways to Make Your Listing Look Bigger

 

Ways to Make Your Listing Look Bigger

Ways to Make Your Listing Look Bigger

Décor choices can have a big impact on how large or small a home appears. Professional home stagers chime in with some tips on how to show off square footage, even when space is tight.

  1. Remove heavy drapes. Leave windows bare or hang sheer linen curtains. The space will feel brighter, and “you’ll extend the view to the outdoors, which will automatically make your space feel larger,” home staging expert Lori Matzke told realtor.com®.
  2. Go monochrome. Painting ever single room in the same color can help lengthen a smaller space. It “prevents your space from feeling choppy and gives it more of a continuous feel,” Matzke says. Furnishings and accessories should also be monochrome. Reduce contrasting colors whenever possible, says Justin M. Riordan, founder of Portland, Ore., and Seattle-based Spade and Archer Design Agency. “If you have a room with taupe walls, walnut floors, a brown sofa, and milk-chocolate pillows—all various names for medium brown—the edges of each item will be less defined and, in turn, be perceived as taking up less space,” Riordan says.
  3. Remove rugs. “The more you break up the flow of your flooring, the smaller your space will feel,” Matzke says. Limit rugs to only one or two main areas, such as under the dining table. Also, small rugs can dwarf a space, so when you do use them, make sure they aren’t too tiny.
  4. Add mirrors to rooms. Mirrors can help make a small room appear larger by reflecting more natural light, Bee Heinemann, marketing director and interior decorating expert at Vänt Wall Panels told realtor.com®. Consider placing a mirror next to or directly across from a window to add more depth to the room.
  5. Raise the bar (in the bathroom). Place shower curtains and window treatments higher up on the wall. “Hang it as high as you can,” Heinemann says. “Doing so gives the illusion of higher ceilings and greater space.”
