Now is a great time to buy....if you are an informed buyer! I know there is a lot of apprehension in the real estate market nationwide. And, for the Atlanta market attitudes are no different. But the savy buyer will recognize this limited window of opportunity and literally....make their move! Particularly if you are a first time home buyer.....what a fabulous chance to become a homeowner AND put $8K in your pocket.
Everyone is talking about the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit. If you purchase a home during 2009 and you have never owned a home; OR, if you have not owned a home in the past three years, this IS your chance to seize the moment and receive a tidy sum of $8K from the Federal Government. Additionally, for Georgians, the House recently passed a $3600 tax credit for ALL home purchasers. However, the way the bill currently reads, the home owner would have to apply for the tax credit within six months of the governor signing the bill. This measure now goes to the Senate.
If being a home owner has been a dream you thought you could never obtain, take the time to view this video and then.....GET MOVING!!!!!! The Atlanta market has much to offer!!!
