Taxes and Real Estate
posted on November 13, 2017 at 3:52 pm
Part of becoming a REALTOR® is learning about the many facets of real estate. Real Estate tax law is one of the areas in which a REALTOR® must be knowledgeable. At Zephyr, we equip our agents to be familiar with the intricacies of tax laws, which allows them to skillfully and confidently guide their clients through the many twists and turns of selling or buying a home. While it is always best that agents direct their clients to seek professional guidance in tax related matters, the agent is the client’s most trusted ally. We want to empower our agents to confidently guide their clients through the choices they face.
To prepare agents for the complex (and, dare we say, even occasionally boring) inner workings of Real Estate tax law, we provide training for new agents as well as resources for experienced agents. In new agent training, Zephyr experts lay out Real Estate tax law in bite-sized and comprehensible topics, including:
- Property Taxes
- Primary Residence vs. Investment Property Taxes
- Tax Advantages and Disadvantages of Ownership
- Transfer Taxes
Backed by 35+ years of local knowledge, experience and resources, Zephyr Real Estate creates a community of expertise that we extend to our agents. Learn more about joining the #1 real estate brand in the Bay Area: Zephyr Real Estate.
