Well in Solano County the homes are still at a reasonable price. First time home buyerscan afford a home in Solano. There is still time to receive the the tax credit for buying a home. They also included current homeowners in the tax credit. They do not get as much as first time buyers but they can get up to $6500.00 Wow that would cover your mortgage payment for a couple of months, as long as you did not buy a real high priced home. You can rent out your current home and either move up to a bigger home or down size to a smaller home. I know that sounds good to me, down sizing. My husband and I are actively looking for a smaller home.
The tax credit is available until April 30, 2010, you must be in contract by that time and you must close by June 30, 2010. So you still have 4 months to find that home you really want.
Remember it is important that you are pre-approved for a mortgagebefore you start looking at homes. Since most sellers are banks and mortgage companies they do not want to take homes off the market unless you are pre-approved.
