Importing a Car and Household Items To the USA as a Foreigner

 

Importing a Car and Household Items To the USA as a Foreigner

Real Estate Tips for North Texas and the World

Have you decided to relocate to the U.S. from another country abroad, but aren’t sure where to start? This is a common situation, as moving your household goods through customs can be an intimidating proposition. The good news is, with the right knowledge under your belt (and the help of a qualified international mover), you can position yourself for the smoothest transition possible. To help you get a better sense of what this process entails, here’s an overview of what you’ll need to know.

Taxes and Duties: Your Household Items

Exempt Items

Moving to the U.S. long-term doesn’t mean you’ll be hit with outrageous fees for the privilege – as you can currently import most of your household items without paying any taxes or duties. This is a tremendous benefit, as some other nations around the globe aren’t as lenient.

In order to be exempt from the regular import taxes and duties, there are a few regulations which you’ll need to fulfill. First, you must show that the goods you’re bringing in, were used by you in your previous residence abroad for a minimum of one year (1). Items that are brand new or you’ve purchased within the last year, are not eligible for tax and duty exemption.

Second, you can only receive the exemption if you have the appropriate visa. See here for more information on the type you will need. Finally, items you plan to use commercially typically won’t be exempt – though professional equipment you purchased and used in a foreign country is often eligible for exemption (2). To learn more, it is recommended that you contact U.S. customs before packing up your shipment.

Dutiable Items

Like nearly every other country on the planet, the U.S. will charge you import duties on specific items. These include alcohol and tobacco above the duty-free limit, which is currently set at 1 liter of alcohol, 200 cigarettes and 100 cigars. These limits are subject to change, so it is highly recommended that you check first with customs before proceeding with your move.

Also, there are additional regulations governing these kinds of specific items, which may pertain to your situation. Examples include Cuban cigars being illegal to import and the requirement that you be over 21 years old to bring in liquor (3).

Forms and Documents: Your Household Items

Customs Forms

Moving your belongings across a border usually comes with a slew of paperwork for you to complete. U.S. customs is no exception, and you’ll need to present officials with Customs and Border Protection Form 6059B at your point of entry. Keep in mind this form is only used if you’re accompanying your goods in person, and it is filled out once you arrive.

However, you may not be planning to travel with your shipment of household goods. In this case, you’ll need to submit CBP Form 3299, which is titled the “Declaration for Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles” (4). A full inventory must also be completed, and you’ll have to produce it upon request.

Also, be aware that customs will view this inventory as your packing list, and general descriptions regarding your shipment are insufficient. Instead, this inventory should be detailed and complete to avoid problems (5). Finally, you may also need CBP form 7501, which is the customs Entry Summary (6).

Other Documents Required

In addition to the customs forms mentioned above, you’ll need your passport and a copy of your visa or permanent residence card. You may also need your I-94 stamp or card, and a copy of either your

Air Waybill or Original Bill of Lading. Other required documents may include a completed food questionnaire and even an Importers Security Filing if applicable to your situation (7).

Taxes and Duties: Your Vehicle

Exemption

If you import your personal vehicle within one year of moving to the U.S., you’ll be exempt from the typical duties that are imposed. That’s assuming you have the appropriate visa and meet the regulations required to bring in your other household goods duty-free.

For a vehicle that was brought in exempt from taxes and duties, it must meet U.S. safety and emission standards. Otherwise, it can only stay in the country for one year, after which time you must export it. Also, if your vehicle doesn’t pass U.S. safety and emission standards – you’re not permitted to sell it in the country. Finally, if it doesn’t comply with these standards, you may be required to ship it using an independent commercial importer (if you can’t obtain an exemption).

Non-Exempt Duty Rates

If for some reason you don’t meet the requirements for duty-free importation – then you should expect to pay the regular rate. Currently this stands at 2.5% for automobiles. This figure is significantly higher for trucks, set at 25% duty for importation of this vehicle class. Finally, if you’re planning to bring in your motorcycle, then the duty can range from nothing up to 2.4%.

Keep in mind, these duty rates apply to both brand new and used vehicles. It also doesn’t matter if you’re importing the vehicle to use for yourself or to resell (8).

Forms and Documents: Your Vehicle

Required Paperwork

Your vehicle won’t be allowed into the country without the correct documentation. Required paperwork includes the Bill of Sale for your vehicle, foreign registration and the original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. Additional paperwork that pertains to your vehicle should also be presented to customs.

The specific customs forms that you’ll need include DOT form HS-7 and EPA form 3520-1. These certify that your vehicle meets the safety and emissions standards required by U.S. law.

If your vehicle doesn’t fulfill these requirements, it may be allowed in for the space of one year – after which time it will have to be exported.

Standard Compliance

Otherwise, if you’re planning to keep your vehicle in the country for longer than this timeframe – it will need to comply with the emission and safety regulations. If it does not, you can pay an independent commercial importer to modify it, but this process is typically cost-prohibitive (9).

Additional Requirements

These are not the only regulations that govern vehicle importation, and customs has additional requirements which you must follow. These include having your vehicle free of personal goods – meaning you can’t use your vehicle to transport your household items inside it. The undercarriage of your vehicle is also required to be spray or steam cleaned, in order to remove any dirt.

Also, if your vehicle is less than 40 years old (built after September 1st, 1978), it’s required to comply

with the bumper standard. Vehicles 31 years old and newer are required to comply with DOT’s theft-prevention regulations (10). Again, this list of additional standards may not be exhaustive, so you should always contact U.S. customs before proceeding with the importation of your shipment.

How to prepare your backyard for an open house

 

How to prepare your backyard for an open house

Real Estate Tips for North Texas

Preparing your backyard for an open house is an important step to enhance the presentation of your property, as well as to make any environment more appealing and inviting to possible buyers. Find out more about two very simple tips to help you make it more appealing for the benefit of the whole property!

Keep it clean.

A filthy and unkempt backyard can reflect very poorly on the rest of the property. Make sure to take all the necessary steps to make it look wonderful and clean. Make sure you mow the lawn if needed, keep dead leaves and other debris out of the way, and make sure you don’t leave any trash around.

Make it lively!

Some realtors make one terrible mistake: They undersell backyards! When presenting a property to a potential buyer, it is essential to add the right value to every component of the home, including the backyard space. Instead of simply passing through the backyard and run through it with the customer, make that space an engaging part of the visit. For example, you could offer some refreshments if the weather is on your side. This is a simple way to show people how they could take advantage of the backyard and make the most out of that space

What are the best features of your home?

 

What are the best features of your home?

Real Estate Tips for North Texas

Identifying the best features of a home could be a very personal process. After all, determining the “best” features is down to the individual preferences and needs of the homeowner. We can all agree that there are some characteristics that you should seek in any home. Read on to learn more!

Windows:

Aesthetically speaking, windows can make a room look a lot larger, and bring a lot of brightness to any space. In addition to that, they can also save homeowners a lot of money by welcoming natural light into the home interiors, thus reducing the costs of electric lighting and sometimes, even heating or cooling.

Kitchen:

The kitchen is, for many people, the real heart of the household. This is where families meet, share their meals and spend a lot of time cooking and prepping. It’s important to look for a kitchen environment that’s flexible, and comfortable, whether you are looking for a smaller kitchen or a bigger one.

Insulation:

Proper insulation might not be the kind of thing that people immediately think of when they look for a new place. However, inquiring about insulation will save you a lot of trouble and potentially, save you a lot of money. Adequately insulated homes will retain heat during winter and stay cool during summer, with minimal energy expenses.

Should I Buy a Pre-Owned Home or Build a New One?

 

Should I Buy a Pre-Owned Home or Build a New One?

Real Estate Tips for North Texas

Many real estate investors or even families looking seeking for a new home might find a lot of challenges when it comes to finding the right solution. One of the most pressing questions is: Should I buy a pre-owned home or build a new one?

There are pros and cons with both options. Read on to learn more!

The benefits of buying a pre-owned home

Building a new home could require a large budget. Sometimes, a pre-owned home could be the most cost-effective alternative. There is an ample choice on the market, so you might easily be able to find a pre-owned home that suits your needs, budget, and preferences, without the need to build something from scratch.

The benefits of building a new home

By building a new home, you will be able to get what you want, from scratch. You don’t have to seek for a home with the features you need since you can tailor the new home specifically to your needs. By building a new home, you can have a say on many things, from materials and aesthetics to layout and functionality.

When you buy a pre-owned home, you might run into some bad surprises,such as undisclosed issues or things you haven’t thought of initially. By building a house from scratch, there is no risk of investing in a pre-owned property that could turn out into your worst nightmare!

Real Estate Tips for New Parents

Safety!

One of the most fundamental concerns for parents is, of course, safety. Make sure you child-proof your home and create a secure environment. Start by making sure no sharp corners are standing out, perhaps by installing protective pads on the edges of chairs and tables, as well as by arranging the placement of furniture in such a safe-conscious way.

Hygiene and cleanliness.

s you can imagine, babies are particularly vulnerable to allergens, and they can quickly get sick. For this reason, it is essential to fight off dust and clean your home as often as you can.

Create some space for your baby’s needs.

Taking care of a baby requires some accessories, and accessories need space. Make sure to plan, so you won’t be overwhelmed when the time comes! Carve some space for a nice diaper changing station, find a spot to stow away your stroller, and make room in your fridge for anything your baby might need at hand. You can also save some time by purchasing some essential accessories ahead, such as baby monitors, toys, and other supplies.

Read up!

Pick up some parental books and read up: you might find some valuable ideas and advice that will help you further transform your home for the benefit of your child!

Top tips for buying the right couch for your new home

 

Top tips for buying the right couch for your new home

What to consider when purchasing a couch for your new space

The best part of having a new home is getting a chance to decorate and refurbish! One of the most important pieces you need is a couch. You need to make sure it’s comfortable and appropriate for your lifestyle, but it should also be stylish and aesthetically in tune with your home decor and design!

Read on for some exciting tips, which will help you choose the best couch for your new home!

Measure your space

Nothing is worse than getting a brand new couch, and then having to send it back because you got the measurements wrong. Make it a point to take accurate measurements of where you want the new couch to go, and purchase a couch that will fit snugly in that space.
Even if your couch fits, you don’t want to choose something that dominates your living room or feels too constrictive. This is your home, not a game of Tetris!

Research

You can narrow down your search for a couch if you know what material, texture, and pattern you want. Consider your situation and needs: If you have pets or children, for example, search for information on couches that are durable, scratch-resistant and easy to clean up. If you take time to gather as much information as possible, you’ll be happy in the long run.

Design

If you already have other furniture, accessories, and painted walls, you need to be careful when selecting the color, style, and patterns of your couch. Without considering the existing aesthetics in your space, you could get stuck with a horrible clash of tones that don’t blend well together!

How do you know when you need a new roof?

 

How do you know when you need a new roof?

North Texas Real Estate Tips

Every home deserves a solid roof to keep your family safe and protected. Having a damaged roof can lead to a wide variety of issues, including loss of heat throughout your home, water leakage, moldy walls and even health hazards for you and your loved ones. When it comes to roofing issues, it is much better to stay on the lookout and check for marks of wear and tear frequently: don’t allow small problems to become huge issues!

Read on to learn more about some of the tell-tale signs you need a new roof and don’t let it catch you off-guard!

Curled or missing shingles.

If you noticed that your shingles are curling, this means that your roof is showing signs of weathering, and it might become prone to leaking. You should consider inspecting your roof as soon as possible and assess the situation. In some instances, you may notice that you are missing shingles here and there. While it might be a pain aesthetically, replacing shingles is not hard or too expensive. The main problem here is a visual one, as newer shingles will look different from the old one…they didn’t have all those years of weathering to dull them down!

Holes and Cracks.

One thing is for sure: if you can see sunlight filtering down from your roof and water dripping down on a rainy day…you know it’s not a good thing! If you experience a similar situation, you should seek help immediately: water damage, in particular, could generate costly damages, if not tackled very early on!

Structural issues.

After several years, some roofs might suffer from structural issues and might feel as if they were sagging. This situation could morph into something potentially dangerous, so make sure you get a professional to inspect it as soon as you notice something wrong…better safe than sorry!

Have questions about where to get roofing work done?

Ask your local RE/MAX Heritage Realtor or office for their roofing recomendation.

Finding the Worst Home in the Best Neighborhood

 

Finding the Worst Home in the Best Neighborhood

Guest Post by Dakota

Every neighborhood has one home that stands out like a sore thumb. Even the nicest residential developments contain at least one house that has been neglected or otherwise has a lower value than the homes around it. Having a knack for finding this type of house is one of the most prized skills in real estate and can pay off big if you’re able to find a home that’s valuable but has fallen into disrepair. For those that aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty by doing some repairs, buying the worst home in the best neighborhood can be one of the top ways to make out like a bandit with a low-cost real estate investment.

What Are Your Plans for the Home?

No matter your age – the first day of school is always a bit scary. Reassure your kids that their feelings are normal. To show them that you’ve been there comfort your kids with stories about how you survived your own first days of school (or tell them about a scary situation that you made it through just fine)!If you’re planning on moving in immediately, buying a bad home in a good neighborhood might be a bad idea. It’s incredibly uncomfortable to work on renovations in the place that you’re currently living, especially if the entire house has problems. If the bathroom works and one of the bedrooms is fine for sleeping in, then moving into a broken-down house right away might work for some people.

But if the kitchen is inoperable, the ceiling is caved in, and there are holes in the walls, you might want to post up elsewhere until the repairs are complete. If you’re not planning on living in the house at all, you can buy it as an investment and let it sit for as long as you like until you’re ready to take the plunge and get underway with the repairs.

When looking around for the perfect fixer-upper, it’s also important to determine your long-term plans for the home right away. If you’re buying a home to remodel as an investment, you’ll want to fix up the house in a way that any potential buyer will enjoy. If you’re planning on living in the house yourself, however, you have more freedom in the aesthetic and functional decisions that you make when renovating the home.

What Makes a Neighborhood the Best for You?

While it may be tempting to think of the best neighborhood as being the most prestigious area in the richest city, the qualities that make a neighborhood the best vary from person to person. The best neighborhood for you is the place that you want to live. When taking a look at different neighborhoods, imagine yourself living in that area every day, living with your family or raising children, walking those sidewalks, going to the parks in the area. Truly immerse yourself in the environment in order to learn if the neighborhood is right for you.

To find out which type of neighborhood is perfect for your individual preferences, it can be helpful to write out a list of all the features that you desire in your ideal neighborhood. In your perfect neighborhood, how far are the houses spaced from each other? Do you want to live in a suburban or rural area? What age are the houses in your ideal development? Come up with your own questions to ask yourself in order to determine which type of neighborhood is right for you.

Why Is the House Considered the Worst in the Neighborhood?

It’s worth mentioning flat-out that some houses are utterly beyond repair. Even if the house isn’t built on top of an Indian burial ground, certain conditions may make a house unlivable no matter how much love you pour into it. Structural issues in the foundation, for instance, can make it simply impossible to turn a beat-up dwelling into the house of your dreams. Take the surroundings of the house into account as well; if a home is squished between a 7/11 and a waste processing plant and hasn’t been renovated since 1895, it be best to simply move on.

But if the house is set in pleasant surroundings and simply needs some love and attention, this can be the perfect project as long as you have the will, time, and resources to get it done. Just because a house is old doesn’t mean it’s beyond repair, and seemingly unfixable issues like a caved in roof can be surprisingly easy to mend. And while to one potential owner a house may be beyond hope, to another, it’s just another challenge to overcome. No matter what the situation, it pays to accurately take stock of both the surroundings and condition of the house before making a decision.

What Is the True Cost of the Home?

While a truly beat-up house may come with an appealingly low price tag, that’s not what you’ll actually be paying for the house no matter how good you are at haggling. Before picking up a fixer-upper, you’ll need to factor in all the costs of repairs. There’s

nothing worse than getting halfway through renovating the house of your dreams and suddenly realizing that you don’t have the funding to pull it off. And no matter how much of a whiz you are at estimations, there will always be something in need of repair that you overlooked. Veteran house flippers always allow for an extra 15% over the estimated repair costs just to be safe, so keep in mind, those additional expenses typically can’t just be put on the credit card.

The Importance of Bidding Low

Owners of broken-down homes are often anxious to get the property off their hands. While they might put up a good front, the allure of no longer having to deal with their unwanted property can be a huge draw for deed-holders that are simply fed up with having to deal with a home that appears to be useless. Even if you have huge dreams for the house, don’t let your eagerness get ahead of you and make sure to start off the negotiations by bidding low on the property. Chances are, the owner will accept your first bid just for the pleasure of washing their hands of the situation.

Why It Pays to Take Your Time

When selecting the right fixer-upper, make sure not to rush into things. Take accurate stock of all the factors listed above and make sure to thoroughly inspect the home to ensure that you have an accurate idea of all the repairs that are entailed. When the time is right to make an offer, you’ll know.

Above all, make sure that you enjoy the process of searching for the home of your dreams. Over the course of your quest, you’ll meet some interesting people and go places that you would never normally venture. Make the best out of your journey and make sure to have some fun while searching for the worst home in the best neighborhood.
