Brian, sorry to disagree with you but I am opposed to the first time credit.  It is just another attempted short term fix that will only worsen the long term economic health of the country.  It's nothing but a temporary bandaid.  It will increase the country's debt and serve as another government narcotic to encourage dependence on the government.  Home ownership should be earned, it's not a right, a gift, nor is it the American Dream.

I can appreciate that George. however, I disagree with the fact that home ownership is not a right, nor the American dream. I think it is the American dream to be in a place to purchase property to build a family and equity for thefuture. it is our job to make that dream happen. All of these first time home buyers still need to qualify for the homes on their own. it is not like the cash for clunkers system where people were basically handed cash for a down payment on a car they won't be able to make payments on. Whether we agree or disagree with it this is a great benefit for our buyers and we should educate them about this tax credit so that maybe our qualified buyers get off the fence. Thanks for the response George.
