Lida and I are back at it today with 5 more first homebuyers coming in for classes today, to learn about the $8000 tax credit and other things. We took the morning to attend a Seminar put on by Wells Fargo Bank. Free donuts and juice!! There were so many great ideas discussed. Here is one that sticks in our mind... Rich Casto who is an Internationally famous real estate negotiator consultant, said that it should be ILLEGAL for any qualified person, who is renting, to fail to buy a home by Dec 1, this year, and get the $8000 stimulus refund. (Tongue in cheek, I think) And furthermore he said any Realtor who knows eligible tax payers, who are renting and does not encourage them to purchase a home before the $8000 offer expires this fall, should lose their license. I don't think he was kidding about that. We can lose our license for a lot less trivial things than $8000.
