It is a great time to buy, especially for first time home buyers, (defined as anyone who has not owned a home in the last 3 years) and repeat buyers who have lived in their most recent home for 5 consecutive years out of the last 8 years. Call me about the federal tax credit of up to $8000 for first time buyers and $6500 for repeat buyers. If you qualify, I can help you take advantage of it before it is too late.
