As we move into 2015, tax reform will impact how we do business and how we buy, or sell, real estate. that would affect real estate has been the talk of the industry recently, and we can expect the conversation to gain steam as we move toward 2015. Like it or not, these discussions are going to impact how we do business.

The main area of concern is the fate of the mortgage-interest deduction. Property-tax deduction and capital-gains taxes on property sales are also relevant to the discussion.  Despite some changes in these policies, it is possible that the majority of homeowners and property investors won’t feel a significant impact.
