Buy a home and get up to $8,000 in FREE money!
As part of President Obama's economic stimulus package, first time buyers (buyers that have either never bought a home or have not owned a home in the past 3 years) will
have a fantastic opportunity to get a tax credit of up to $8,000 if they buy a home before April 30, 2010.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since you MUST have entered into a fully executed, mutually agreed upon purchase
contract no later than April 30, 2010 you should start looking for a home IMMEDIATELY as some bank owned homes and/or short sales can take several months to even reach a mutual agreement and get fully signed contracts back. And, if your transaction were
to fall apart you would have to start all over so you don't want to wait until the last minute!
This truly IS like getting FREE MONEY so don't miss out. Here are a few more highlights...
This is a GREAT time to buy a home! For first time buyers that meet the requirments of obtaining this first time buyer tax credit...it is the BEST TIME TO BUY A HOME!
- The amount of the homebuyer federal income tax credit is the lesser of 10% of the cost of the home bought or $8,000.
- Eligible Properties: Any single-family residence (including a condo, co-op, or townhouse) may be an eligible property under the homebuyer income tax credit, provided it will be used as the homebuyer’s principal residence.
- Must be under contract by April 30, 2010 AND close no later than June 30, 2010.
- This homebuyer income tax credit reduces income tax liability. The $8,000 tax credit is a clean refundable
credit, unlike the one that was passed last summer, which required a repayment.
If you qualify as a first-time buyer (i.e., haven't been a homeowner in the past 3 years),
then you can claim the $8,000 to reduce your tax burden.
If the $8,000 is greater than the tax you owe, then you will get a refund check for the difference.
Example: you owe $2,000 in taxes on April 15, 2010. But if you bought a home before the stimulus
expiration on April 30, 2010, then you will get a tax refund check for $6,000 from the IRS when you file your income taxes.*
Selecting the BEST agent to help you purchase a home and represent you and your best interests is extremely important! Some people think all
agents are the same when in fact they are absolutely NOT the same. Each agent is an independant contractor and
they all have their own business practices, motivations and more often than not, very little training. Believe it or not,
some agents really have their best interests in mind...not yours!
A home purchase is one of the biggest investments you'll make in your lifetime and you need
professional representation...not a part time agent that is a friend of a friend.

it could cost you dearly. Steve is an ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) and has over 20 years experience as
