Jennifer Parker, Broker, recently joined host Gerry Lantaigne on Hunter’s Bay Radio’s “The State of Real Estate” segment to discuss your home, your investment. For most people their home is their primary investment.  It’s not just the price you originally paid for your home, or your mortgage payments, but also the accrued growth in the real estate market in your area.  This can represent a healthy portion of your investment portfolio.  It is important to distinguish between your primary residence (the home you live in full time) and a secondary residence in this discussion, as there are different tax implications for both.  In our discussion we refer to your primary residence.
