you got the tax answer below, but why are you not working with a Buyers Agent, Your personal Realtor, working in your interest and be you one stop resource for all your questions, finding properties and
showing them and going through the entire process with expertise and guidance.
Buyers agents are usually paid out of the proceeds from the Sellers side at the closing table, all that
is required from you is your 100 % commitment and loyalty to one Realtor, your personal buyers agent.
That way no questions to ask here and there, someone constantly on your side, assisting in writing a good and well researched offer, once you find the right home.
If you need a recommendation for the areas you are interested in, let us know and we gladly send
some good recommendations your way.
Good luck to you.
Hope this helps...
