It all boils down to taking care of business. The words save money seemed to be lost in another time. If we have learned anything from this economy and Real estate market maybe...just maybe....SAVE MONEY

will become a household saying again.......

First time home buyers are coming into the real estate market like we have never seen before. One mortgage company that I work with estimates that 65% of his business is FHA loans. So, we must turn with the market. We must focus on first time home buyers when marketing to the public. So, I have developed the TOP 10 WAYS TO SPEND $8,000 HOUSE TAX CREDIT

  1. Closing costs
  2. Furniture
  3. Appliances
  4. Landscaping
  5. Pay off back taxes
  6. Upgrade computer
  7. Obtain a real estate license
  8. Clothing
  9. Pay down debt
  10. Save money

I like #10 myself. Are there any other tips that you can add to this list? Input please ......

Yeah, I think #10 to be ready for all the expenses of a new home you did even think about.  My house was built in 1940 and I really love it, but it is a money pit.  You never know what is going to come up.  Thanks for the suggestions.

I think they should put the money in a money market account in case someone lost their job so they could make the house payments.
