However, there's not much time left to take advantage of these tax credits.  Agreements must be written up no later than April 30, 2010.  Settlements must take place no later than June 30, 2010. There are maximum income limits on the tax credits, but the limits are fairly high.  Discuss your particular situation with your tax preparer.

A recent TV news report from WGAL in Lancaster, PA gives some good imformation about the tax credits for both first time home buyers and trade-up (or trade-down) home owners.
