When you sell real estate you've held as an investment, the rate at which you're taxed on the profit from it may vary. Home sales, being a specific type of capital gains, have their own set of rules.
While affordability is key in choosing where you live, these cities also rank high for amenities, education, economy, health care, infrastructure and other lifestyle factors.
Home improvements are an investment, and your return on investment is an important consideration on which project you choose, and how much to spend on it.
TheStreet sits down with one of the U.S.' strongest authorities on the housing market, the chief economist for LendingTree, to discuss what the next round of home buyers will mean for the market.
New home sales in the U.S. totaled 607,000 in January, down from 652,000 in December, the Census Bureau reports. The drop was steeper than projected by economists, who had estimated January sales at 620,000.
Some of the best home improvements you can make to your home when it comes to the value of your money are also some of the least expensive.
