Time is running out on your Tax Credit!

By
Residential Home Builder with Marnella Homes, LLC

For our potential first time home buyers out there, the $8000 Federal Housing Tax Credit that you are eligible for is coming to a close.  By the 1st of December 2009, only 3 months way, this tax credit will be no more.  However, due to the time necessary to close a home taking about 30 - 45 days, what this really means is that you will need to have your sales agreement accepted and in escrow by the 15th of October just to be safe.  Since you have only about a month and a half of shopping time left, don't delay.  Take advantage of all that is available in the market place right now; historically low interest rates, home values that have reset in many markets to 2003/2004 prices and an $8000 government give-a-way.

 Don't be one of those who feels that the housing market has a long way to fall.  There is too much positive news coming out all over the country to counter that theory.  Remember, it only takes interest rates to move up a half of a percent to wipe out the benefit of a 10% drop in sales price.  With many markets identifying their bottoms already, waiting for deeper price cuts is a mistake that you will surely regret when the tax credit is gone and rates go up.  Which, they will.

 Don't miss out on what will be looked back upon as an opportunity of a lifetime for those willing to take advantage of it.

Did you see that there is legislation to extend the credit and it would be for all buyers not just first time home buyers?

I have, yes.  I have also read that the credit may be increased to as much as $15k.  However, not having much faith in our fearless leaders, I am not sure what will actually happen.  I honestly, don't know how we can afford more stimulous so, I am torn on whether to support an extention or increase in the credit or not.

Additional Information

I bought my first home when I was 21 years old. Besides some bedroom furniture, I owned basically nothing. I remember being overwhelmed by the process and the weight of the responsibility. When I closed on the house and picked up the keys, I celebrated by enjoying a pizza and a beer sitting on the floor in the middle of my very own living room. I was so proud and excited to own a home of my own; something that was all mine. It was an experience I will never forget and one that influences what I do today. My background in Real Estate spans over 24 years and includes sales, restoration of historic homes, and construction and development. Over the years I have always tried to bring the same sense of pride and excitement to my customers that I felt as a first-time home buyer myself. And now as a builder, I strive to create beautiful homes and a home buying experience that is fun and easy. I am a lifelong resident of the northwest and understand the importance of a good name. From start to finish, my reputation is represented through our quality of craftsmanship, honorable dealings and attention to detail. And that is why I am involved in every aspect of Marnella Homes. My vision of the Marnella companies and the experience that I expect for our homeowners is what motivates me and every one of my team members.
