Homestead Exemptions for Property Taxes

Permanent residents of Citrus county qualify for a homestead exemption of up to $50,000 off the assessed value of the home.  Please click on the link to see how to qualify and eligibility. There are additional benefits for disabled Veterans, first responders, the blind and widows.

Portability for Florida Property Tax

Portability - "Save Our Homes" (SOH)

"With portability you can transfer your SOH savings from your old homestead to your new one. The savings amount is equal to the difference between the old home’s market value and its assessed value, up to a maximum of $500,000. If you are moving to a more-expensive homestead, you will benefit from the entire savings amount. If you are moving to a less-expensive one, you will benefit proportionately.

If you received the homestead exemption in the prior three years on a home that you sold or otherwise abandoned and have purchased a new home by January 1, you are eligible to take some or all of the benefit of “Save Our Homes” to your new home.

In order to receive this benefit, you must file a “Transfer of Homestead Assessment Difference” form, DR-501T by March 1, with the property appraiser in the county where the new homestead is located for the transfer of the “Save Our Home” benefit to your new homestead. Once the form is submitted the property appraiser in the new homestead county will obtain a certificate of transfer from the property appraiser in the count in which the original homestead was located.

If you have already applied for your new Homestead Exemption you must also apply for the “portability” portion."

Safety in Your Home

As a realtor, I know that safety should always come first, especially in our homes. For seniors, safety is a top priority. That's why we've compiled a list of important safety facts and hacks you can use to improve the safety of your home. From installing grab bars to ensuring proper lighting, there are many simple steps you can take to make your home safer for you and your loved ones.

Making Your Home Safe for Seniors

As we age, our homes may become more challenging to navigate safely. However, with a few modifications and precautions, you can create a safer living environment for seniors. This webpage provides valuable tips and facts on how to make your home safe for seniors, preventing accidents and injuries.

Why Home Safety Matters for Seniors

Aging can bring about physical and cognitive changes that increase the risk of accidents and injuries. Falls, in particular, are a major concern for seniors. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Falls are the leading cause of injuries among older adults.

  • One out of four Americans aged 65 and older falls each year.

  • Falls can result in fractures, head injuries, and other severe health complications.

Taking steps to make your home safer is essential to maintain a high quality of life and independence as you age.

Home Safety Tips for Seniors

1. Declutter and Organize

  • Remove tripping hazards like loose rugs, cords, and clutter from walkways.

  • Ensure that furniture is arranged to create clear pathways.

  • Install adequate lighting in hallways, staircases, and key areas.

2. Secure Flooring

  • Consider installing non-slip flooring or using non-slip rugs and mats.

  • Repair any loose or uneven floorboards promptly.

  • Apply non-slip strips to stairs and steps.

3. Bathroom Safety

  • Install grab bars near the toilet and in the shower or bath.

  • Use a shower chair or bench for added stability.

  • Consider a raised toilet seat for easier use.

4. Kitchen Safety

  • Organize kitchen items to keep frequently used items within easy reach.

  • Use non-slip shelf liners to prevent dishes and utensils from sliding.

  • Install lever-style faucets for easier handling.

5. Bedroom Safety

  • Choose a bed height that allows for easy entry and exit.

  • Ensure a clear path from the bed to the bathroom.

  • Use nightlights for better visibility during nighttime trips.

6. Stair Safety

  • Install handrails on both sides of staircases.

  • Consider a stairlift or a ramp if mobility is a significant concern.

  • Keep stairs clear of clutter at all times.

7. Medication Management

  • Organize medications in a pill organizer.

  • Set up a medication reminder system to prevent missed doses.

  • Regularly review medications with a healthcare provider.

8. Emergency Preparedness

  • Keep a list of emergency contacts accessible.

  • Install a medical alert system or wearable device for quick assistance.

  • Create an emergency kit with essential supplies.

9. Regular Home Maintenance

  • Schedule regular inspections for electrical, plumbing, and structural issues.

  • Replace smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors as needed.

  • Check and maintain appliances to prevent hazards.

10. Stay Active and Healthy

  • Engage in regular exercise to improve balance and strength.

  • Eat a balanced diet to maintain overall health.

  • Regular medical check-ups are essential to monitor health conditions.

Facts About Senior Home Safety

  1. Falls Are Preventable: Many falls and injuries can be prevented by making simple modifications to the home environment.

  2. Medication Management is Crucial: Medication-related issues, such as incorrect dosing or drug interactions, can lead to falls or health complications. Proper medication management is vital.

  3. Regular Check-ups Matter: Routine medical check-ups help seniors manage chronic conditions and identify potential health risks.

  4. Home Modifications are Cost-Effective: Investing in home modifications, such as grab bars or non-slip flooring, is often more cost-effective than the medical expenses resulting from falls and injuries.

  5. Family Involvement is Key: Family members can play a significant role in ensuring home safety for seniors by assisting with modifications and offering support.

By implementing these tips and understanding the importance of home safety for seniors, you can create a secure and comfortable living environment that promotes independence and well-being. Remember that seeking professional advice from healthcare providers and home safety experts is always a smart choice to ensure that your home is tailored to your unique needs.
