When the tax code was originally being overhauled by the House and the Senate, there were three major proposals being considered that would have substantially impacted the residential real estate market:

  1. Changing the requirements for the exclusion of gain on the sale of a principal residence

  2. The reduction on the limit of the Mortgage Interest Deduction (MID)

  3. The elimination of the State and Local Tax deduction (SALT) which includes property taxes

This Tax Reform & Housing Reference Guide can help you make sense of how the new tax code may affect your home sale or purchase or your mortgage activity in 2017.
