first time home buyer tax credit: 4 Great Reasons To Sell Your Home In Westchester County Now - 02/08/10 06:30 AM
Selling a property in this tough market can seem like a challenge. Here are four factors that actually make this a good time to post a For-Sale sign.

2) Down-payment help is widely available. While nothing-down loans have disappeared, it is easy to find down-payment … (0 comments)

first time home buyer tax credit: The First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit May Expand And Extend Into 2010. - 06/22/09 05:17 AM
The First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit has really jump started what has been a rather sluggish real estate market.  As the Dec 1, 2009 expiration date quickly approaches many wonder what will come next.   Now both legislators and the business community are hoping to build on the incentive's success by expanding it.

first time home buyer tax credit: FHA Lenders Get The Green Light To Use First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit For Closing Costs - 05/29/09 05:46 AM

first time home buyer tax credit: Changes To The First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit - 05/22/09 12:00 AM
There was a news post put out by HUD (The Dept Of Housing And Urban Development) last week stating that the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) is going to allow first time home buyers to "monetize" the tax credit and use it as a sort of bridge loan to make a down payment on a home.  This would allow the purchaser to use the money up front rather then use it later.  This plan was still in the works and then rumors began that the plan wasn't going to be implemented and that the credit shouldn't be considered debt or a loan but … (0 comments)
