Playa Vista Market Report: Results of the New Tax Bill on Home-Ownership

Welcome to December 1st, the beginning of the most festive month of the year! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

As expected, there was very little activity in the marketplace over the past week. Coupled with only three active listings in the Playa Vista condo resale market and four brand new single-family homes listed on the MLS, the extremely low inventory is one of the main causes of this level of sedentariness.

Moving parallel, there appears to be a similar indecisive sentiment as the country is waiting to see if the President’s new tax plan will pass. One of the key elements affecting home-ownership is the proposed cut in the amount of the home mortgage interest deduction from $1.1 million to $500,000 that taxpayers can deduct, effectively reducing their taxable income. This popular homeownership incentive will definitely affect people living in high-cost housing markets, such as Los Angeles Metropolitan. The bill, if passed, will apply to new home purchases and make it so that homeowners can only deduct interest payments on up to $500,000 worth of home loans. The bill would also eliminate deductions for mortgages on second homes. Those changes would only apply to future homeowners, not existing ones. For some, the tax bill, if passed, will be a welcome decision, while those looking to make purchase with much higher mortgages will lose out.

For more information about any of the new homes or other properties featured in this newsletter or this week’s open house schedule, please feel free to contact me. I am happy to offer you additional information about the community, Playa Vista Elementary School and the dynamic marketplace.

Have an extraordinary weekend!
