On Monday morning I listed a 2-year old Varenna Plan 2 single family residence in The Groves @ Orchard Hills on MLS as a Coming Soon listing and it went Active this morning on Saturday. The home was built in 2020 and features 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, optional conservatory room downstairs, and an upstairs loft along with 2,719sf of living space. The home is listed for sale at $2,000,000 and expected to sell fast.

PM or email me if you are interested in seeing the home. Showings will start on tomorrow on Sunday (March 6th) at 11am. I'll be hosting open houses next weekend (Saturday & Sunday March 12th and 13th) from 1-4pm.

Nice house. I personally always liked these Varenna plans with the downstairs guest BR in the back of the house rather than the front.

After a few counters, the seller accepted an offer and we opened escrow today.  I'll change the status as soon as the deposit hits escrow.

Got word from escrow this morning that the transaction closed today.  The sales price is $2,030,000 and the seller also got a free 5 month rent back.  Congrats to both the buyer and seller.

Hopefully the buyer used all cash or didn’t claim primary residence. Otherwise it will be mortgage fraud…

Well the price was initially $2.06m with a $6k per month rent back but since the seller would pay capital gains tax above a $2m sales price it only made sense to reduce the price by $30k in exchange for a free rent back.  Seller pays less in long term capital gain taxes and buyer pays less in property taxes, a true win-win situation.

That's between the buyer and their lender, I was just focused on getting an extended rent back for my client.  ;)

Curious, what changes with capital gains tax above the $2M sales price?

I assume it’s not the 2mil but rather the 500k triggering cap gains since these varennas were about 1.5 new

Correct, based upon the cost basis of the home (purchase price + closing cost + post-close upgrades) the seller would have crossed the $500k gain exemption amount with a sales price of slight under $2m (with net proceeds in the low $1.9s) at which point anything above the $500k gain amount becomes taxable.  Reducing the sales price by $30k in exchange for the free rent saved the seller approx. $10k in long term capital gains tax. It's situations like these where it comes in handy when a realtor is also a CPA.  ;)
