Home Sale Prices Vs. Appraised Value: Why That Matters to You

So the home sales prices in #realestate  for #GrandRapidsMI  are going up. Obviously. But what about appraised property values? Are they going up, too? Perhaps, but they certainly won't be catching up with the skyrocketing prices, and that's a major turn-off for home flippers.

GR has been seeing multiple offers on listings these days — major competition for the everyday home flipper when you think about it. After all, if the sales price ends up being way more than the actual appraised value, there's not much chance of that home flipper increasing the value that much more to sell for a profitable price, minus the time and investment.

So here's some advice — don't flip houses in GR. This is one real estate economy going to the home buyers and sellers of a community. No home FLIPPERS here.

How a Dynasty Trust Can Save on Your Son's #Taxes Later On

Building wealth: that's what business is all about, and all of that effort will transfer over to a new CEO, a relative, our dog, and, yes, even our children. Enter: the dynasty trust, something that the #CBB values quite well in terms of continuing to make the wealth last long beyond your life.

What is a dynasty trust? It's an irrevocable trust, creating that generational wealth and allowing your descendants to benefit from these tax exemptions: estate, gifting, and generation skipping. And it lasts for the ENTIRE LIFE of the trust itself.

The trust can be funded in two different ways — while you're actually alive and kicking, or dead and long gone. Either way, in terms of business finances — if you have stocks, bonds, and even life insurance, or maybe you own some real estate — these are all items that can go into a dynasty trust and literally sit there, growing exponentially to the point that they have no cap. We're talking millions here.

Of course, your assets would be subject to income and capital gains tax unless you live in Texas, Nevada, or Florida — say HELLO to tax savings in that case!

That's where a dynasty trust could make a way for a pretty nice tax shelter — not just for you, but for those carrying on your legacy. Of course, you'd do well to consult with an attorney and sign up with Cloud Based Bookkeeping for more information. Get those taxes figured out and see if it's worth it (it's definitely worth it if you're in one of those three states).

And, of course, check out this link for even more tax shelters to maximize your refund.
