If you are wanting to get the $8000 tax credit don't write a contract with a closing date past November 20, 2009 or you may not be able to complete the funding part of the process completed on time. Do you thinks that a lot of first time home buyers think that they can close on November 30, 2009 and still get there new home funding before the end of that day? Maybe it will happen, but do not take the chance. Title company employees are just like everyone else; they want to be somewhere else during the Holidays and I would say many will be.
If a flood of contracts go into Escrow at the same time will your be the one that gets closed and funded before the November 30, 2009 dead line? Do not wait, get out there and make you client understand time is not on there side
