Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga, has proposed raising the tax credit from $8,000 to $15,000. In addition he proposes extending the credit to anyone on the purchase of any home. If approved, the income caps of $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 for couples would be eliminated.
It is no secret that the first time homebuyer tax credit of $8,000 has been credited with spurring on home sales in the entry levels. It is set to expire November 30th and we are seeing first time homebuyers scrambling to get a house under contract so as to make the deadline. I had one such prospective first time buyer call me today. It's hard to find good, affordable homes, and in the lower price ranges there is little inventory and it is definitely a buyer's market.
The question on every real estate agent's mind is what will happen once the tax credit expires. There is no question that the current tax credit has been spurring the uptick in sales and has helped to bolster the economy. I think Senator Isakson's proposed legislation, if passed, would be a huge boon and speed recovery. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out in the next few months.
