franklin township: UPDATE - FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS' TAX CREDIT FLEXIBILITY - 05/21/09 11:10 AM
Are you sitting down?
Yesterday our mortgage folks said the Feds have pulled the letter allowing the First Time Home Buyers to use the $8,000 tax credit towards downpayment on a purchase or towards closing costs.  Today we were informed that the Feds are saying that they have not pulled the provision but have merely put it on hold while they re-review it.
I am going to take the advice some of you offered who responded to my earlier blog and that is that I will believe it when I see it and until then I am not going to talk about … (3 comments)

franklin township: NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTOR'S NEW GREEN DESIGNATION - 03/28/09 06:19 PM
I just completed the core course requirement for my NAR GREEN certification and it was unbelievably enlightening.  The course encourages the real estate professional to become an advocate for Green principles in the design and use of homes and to become a positive force for creating sustainable communities.  The next step is to take the Elective follow up course in April that specifically targets a field of interest and/or expertise - residential, commercial or property management. 
I am very excited about this initiative and plan to ride this GREEN wave all the way in the residential field for the benefit of future generations.

I like to believe that buyers are anticipating a surge and they don't want to miss out on any opportunities to snap up those lovely bargain-priced homes that have been drastically reduced from original asking. We have a lot … (4 comments)
