homesales: The Real cut off day for the $8000 credit is Nov 25, NOT Nov 30! - 09/29/09 02:01 AM
We're heading into the home stretch for first time buyers to be eligible for the $8000 tax credit. If the proeprty isn't under contract within the next 10 days, then chances are real good that it won't close on time.
One date that everybody has been looking at for months is Nov 30, , a Monday as the drop off date. Well take a look at the calender and see where that falls.

That assessment came from leading forecasters in a survey by the National Association for Business Economics to be released Wednesday.
