Vincent has a team of 7 professionals that make selling your home as simple as possible. They handle the marketing of your property from start to finish, sometimes spending upwards of $50,000 to make sure the property receives the attention it deserves.

Tax Consequences

Many long term homeowners in Silicon Valley have millions of dollars of unrecognized gains through years of ownership. This can make selling a complex decision.  We encourage all of our clients to consult a neutral third party CPA (of their choice). This service is paid for by us on all listing agreements.

We want to make sure you know exactly where you stand as to your situation.

Currently, Capital Gains Law allows for $500,000 capital gains for a married couple and $250,000 for a single seller. We want you to decide what works best for you as the tax laws are always subject to change especially now that its 2018.

Currently, when a spouse dies in California, the surviving spouse gets a step-up in basis on the entire value of owned property as community property with rights of survivorship.  This is the most common form of ownership for well-advised clients.

Elderly Clients

Long term owners who haven't sold in many years will get valuable information from our team at all times.  The CPA will help you make the right choice, using your unique circumstances and the latest tax laws.

You the seller have worked hard to get to where you are.  Having impartial professional consultation arms you with current information so that you can make the correct decision for yourself, and not be influenced by others.  Always talk to your lawyer or CPA. If selling isn't the right move for you, we will help you with your needs.
