My thoughts for today in Southern MA Real Estate- Taunton Area-Massachusetts

So are you tired of hearing about whether the tax credit will be extended?  It is always a great time to buy good real estate. Now is just a bit different. I have never seen home prices and interest rates in line with one another. .and the government giving away so much money. Usually it's one or the other, home prices higher, interest rates lower and vice versa.

My first question is who is going to pay for this. Don't get me wrong, the first time home buyer tax credit has helped many buyers and sellers get real estate up an running again..question is.. can we sustain the market without the credit? Should the credit be extended and even include others? Frankly, I have mixed emotions.

On one hand, it scares me.. bet you never thought I would say this.. "Lori the optimist". One cannot help but wonder.. if the credit is extended, that means millions of people are cashing in their credit instead of paying taxes. So who pays for it.?? I believe that would be us?  Our country has so much debt now.

On the other hand, if the tax credit isn't extended, will the economy not recover? Will home buyers not be able to buy? After the expiration on Novemeber 30, will the real estate market tank?

Lots to think about. ..
