There’s Nothing LIke the Love of a Pet

There's Nothing Like the Love of a Pet, Bailey the Boxer

This big guy brings us so much joy. He loves us unconditionally, he makes us laugh, he is a constant companion and when I am sad he won’t leave my side. He loves to be a part of everything going on.  Now, in his time of need, I hope that I can provide the same love, patience and understanding to him, that he has provided to me.

The Deadline is Quickly Approaching, Have you Filed for Homestead Exemption?

The Deadline is Approaching, Have you Filed for Homestead Exemption?

If you purchased a home in 2014 and you will be living in it as your primary residence, then you must file for Homestead Exemption for the first time to receive the exemption.

When you own a home in Florida, and live in it as your primary residence, then Florida law typically allows you a $25,000 tax exemption on the assessed value of the property. If you purchased the property in 2014, then it is time for you to file for homestead, as it doesn’t automatically transfer to a new owner, at the start of the new year. An application must be filed. After that, the exemption automatically renews, if you remain eligible.

Homestead exemption may allow a Florida homeowner a savings of approximately $450 on their yearly tax bill. And, with Amendment 1, many homeowners may be entitled to an additional $25,000 in exemption for a total of $50,000 in exemption on the assessed value of their property.  Thus, allowing approximately an additional $240 savings on their tax bill.

New homeowners may apply for homestead between January 1 and March 1, for the first time. You must have purchased your home prior to December 31, 2014.  If you do not file by March 1 you may lose your rights to homestead for that year. You should complete an application (Form DR-501). It must then be submitted to the property appraiser’s office.  The pdf form can be found on the Brevard County Property Appraisers website.

In order to apply for homestead for the first time, an owner must have moved into the home prior to January 1, 2015 and it must be considered your primary residence.  With the completed homestead application an owner must provide:

1. Florida Driver License or Florida ID card.(with your new address on it)

2. Florida vehicle registration

3. Brevard County Voters Registration card

4. Social security number or social security card

5. If not a US resident, a Resident Alien Card

6. A copy of the trust, if the property is in a trust. The recorded deed to the property.

If you would like additional information on Homestead Exemption check the link on the Brevard County Property Appraisers Website. Be sure to check to see if you are eligible for other exemptions. Once you have filed for Homestead Exemption, it should automatically renew each year. You will receive a card in the mail at the beginning of each year. If you have a question, contact the Brevard County Property Appraiser’s office.

Do You Remember your First Home? I Sure Do!

Remember Your First Home? I Lived at the Railroad Crossing!

So often, in helping buyers find their first home, I can’t help but think back to my first home away from home.  And, oh what a home it was! I was 21 years old.  My first home was a mobile home.  No, let’s just call it what it was, it was a trailer, a rickety old single-wide 12 x 60 foot trailer. It needed a lot of tender loving care. It was downright ugly.  It needed a good thorough scrubbing from top to bottom and a coat of paint. And, that’s what it got. I scrubbed and cleaned and scrapped and painted until my trailer looked like a shiny new penny. It was cute. It had red shag carpeting with red lights in the ceiling. The second bedroom was the size of a bathroom. It fit one single bed and a tiny little dresser. You had to practically climb on the bed to get into the closet.

And, it was sitting right next to the railroad tracks and the road. The master bedroom window was 10 feet from the tracks. On the other side there was a busy street. I lived at the railroad crossing!

Each time a train went by the whole place shook. The dishes clattered in the cupboards and the chandelier danced on the ceiling, threatening to come crashing down.  We had to run across the living room to turn up the volume on the TV. (This was before the days of TV remote controls – I know, I know, back in the stone age).  Between the ding, ding, ding of the railroad crossing gates going down, the traffic stopping, the train whistle, and the train roaring by, I was ready to be put in a rubber room.  I cried the first night that I stayed there. Although, I loved the thought of having a place of my own, after just a short time I still felt a bit unsettled living there.

But, it was mine, all mine. I paid $3,500 for it, with my own money. I owned it free and clear and I paid $95.00 a month in lot rent to have it parked on a “prime” piece of real estate.

I spent a year a half there and never slept through an entire night, because of the train. Needless to say, I had large dark circles under my eyes.

One day I decided it was time to move on. I stuck a For Sale sign in the window and sold the place a couple of weeks later.  The couple that bought it didn’t mind the train. When I was showing it to them a train came roaring by. They said they were used to living by the tracks, as they had for years. It was a match made in heaven.

I took my little profit and my sister and I pooled our money and built a home together off of Stewart Road in Melbourne. Now, that was a real home!

Today, I still have this picture of a train (that was given to me back in the 1980’s when I lived in my trailer), hanging in my laundry room. It reminds me of where I’ve come from. And funny, but for some reason, it reminds me of a much simpler time in my life.

Do you remember your first home?
