Did the end of the $8,000 mean the end of the world if you are selling your home?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

If think the answer is “yes” or your agent told you that it is going to be harder now that the $8,000 tax credit is gone, then you need to think again. It is business as usual if you have a home that is show ready and priced right.


I can tell you that there are just as many buyers out there today as there were last month all looking for homes. They didn’t stop looking because the $8,000 tax credit was over. The fact is many buyers didn’t even start looking until the tax credit was already over.

There will always be buyers and there will always be sellers. So if you are a seller, don’t worry about the tax credit being over. Give your home curb appeal, price it right and in no time at all, you will be moving to your new home yourself.

If you are in the market to sell your home, contact me today and I can give you a free market analysis of what your home is worth. Click here for a free CMA on your home.

People are still looking to buy here...of course the $8000 tax credit was a nice incentive while it lasted. I like the curb appeal of that home in the photo Todd!

Hi Todd-

There are always buyers and Sellers as well as those who never knew about the tax credit, were not eligible for the tax credit, or were not relocating in time for the tax credit!  Those people may still be purchasing.

I have to agree, the tax credit also didn't fix the problem, time will.  May have also kept prices inflated a little more than they should have been.
