I have talked with several of my clients who were not aware the home buying tax credit had been extended. The credit for first time home buyers is 10% of the purchase price of the home, up to $8,000. A benefit with the new tax program is to those who own a house and want to move. The credit for them is $6,500. This is free money for buying a house. Click here for a brochure explaining the details. Besides the tax credit, interest rates are truly incredibly low, close to 5%. With this combination of incentives, a lot of people who currently own a house could sell it and buy something bigger and have a lower house payment for a newer, larger home. This should be something to really consider if there is a move planned anytime in the near future. I am sure you can think of someone who is ready to take advantage of this. Please have them call me.
