Could Be the Opportunity of a Lifetime for First-Time Buyers!!!

For first-time buyers who are debating whether or not now is a good time to buy, recently enacted Federal legislation may now offer the needed incentive, providing up to a $7,500.00 tax credit for first-time home buyers, for homes purchased on or after April 9, 2008 and before July 1, 2009. Note that for purposes of the credit, "purchased" means that the actual CLOSING must occur by July 1st. Assuming a typical 45-day escrow, it is in any first-time home buyers best interest to act as quickly as possible, in order to have an ACCEPTED OFFER and be ready to go into escrow by mid-May at the latest, so as not to possibly lose out on this INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!!

Currently it is established as a zero-interest loan, which must be repaid to the government over a 15-year period, but I understand that there are provisions in the current economic stimulus package to make this credit PERMANENT, and one that NEVER HAS TO BE PAID BACK! Now that's what I call a TRUE tax credit!!! We will follow this stimulus bill very closely.

Please see this site for more information regarding the credit: **
