Adel Residential Tax Abatement Update

I wanted to provide an update on the residential tax abatement program in Adel. For years 2011, 2012 and 2013 the city has offered a program that abates 100% property tax for a period of 7 years. The Adel city council just extended the program another three years for 2014,2015,2016. The program has been very successful at adding additional rooftops to the city and as a result the three existing residential subdivisions – Evans View, Parkview Heights and Baileys Grove have totally sold out of lots. Since the abatement has been extended, plans are underway to develop additional homesites. In the meantime, we do have lots available that have been purchased by Well Built Homes and Barnett Construction.

This is an example of a single-family home that we have available in the Parkview Heights neighborhood:

We also have some very nice townhomes available in the Evans View neighborhood that also offer the 7 year abatement and no association dues:

Please contact me if you would like information on the above homes, available upcoming lots or want more information on the 7-year tax abatement.

New Tax Credit For Iowa First-Time Home Buyers

Iowa Finance Authority announced a great new program this week to put money back in the hands of homebuyers. The Take Credit! Mortgage Credit Certificate provides for an up to $2000 per year tax credit for the life of the mortgage. So essentially you would receive $2000 towards your tax liability. If you liability is zero, you should receive a refund. The money that you receive back effectively reduces your mortgage payment by the amount you receive which in this case ($2000/12) is $166 per month.

As always there are restrictions and limitations. The program is targeted towards first-time homebuyers, veterans and those living intargeted areas. From the IFA website:

  • Applicants must meet Iowa Finance Authority¬†income limits, which vary by county.
  • The purchase price of the home may not exceed $305,000 if located in a Targeted Area or $250,000 if located in a Non-Targeted Area.
  • The home must be located in Iowa.
  • The home buyer must meet one of the following: be a first-time home buyer, purchase a home in a Targeted Area, or be a military veteran who has not previously used a mortgage revenue bond program.

In Polk county, the income limits are $75,000 income for a 1-2 person household and $86,825 for 3+ people living in a household.

This is a great program that makes housing more affordable for many people.

Please contact me if I can provide you with more information or connect you with an approved lender.
