  • Question: Hi Tim, My husband recently passed away this year, I heard that I need to get an appraisal for our house so that later on when I decided to sell it has something to do with the capital gain. All I know is that for married couple, we can claim 500K free of tax. But in my case, I am a widower. How does that work? And should I get an appraisal now? if so, whom would you recommend. Thanks in advance.

    Answer: Good morning Qlin; Yes, you need to get an appraisal now. The reason is that the base price will reset to the current value and not the value of the home that you paid for it. If your husband was alive then you could use the base price of when you purchased the home, add in the upgrades you have done and then another 500k. However now you get to totally reset the base to the value that home was when he passed plus $250,000 for yourself. Please make sure that the appraiser uses the value that it was when your husband passed and not todays value. Home prices have been coming down all year. Please call me if this is not totally clear. Please call or text and I will give you the number of a good appraiser.

  • Question: Hello Timothy,I am thinking of becoming a Realtor. What kind of hours do you work? It seems to me that most Realtors work about 4 or 5 hours a day. Is this true?
