First-Time San Jose Homebuyers Alert: Only 40 Days Left to Qualify for FREE Tax Credit
by Michelle C. Carr-Crowe
First-Time San Jose Homebuyers Alert: Urgent! There's only 40 days left to qualify for the U.S. Government's free tax credit of up to $8,000.
I’ll make it brief and to the point: there are financially sound reasons to carefully consider buying in spring 2010.
For example, 2010 is a good year to buy in San Jose, Campbell, Los Gatos, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Saratoga or Cupertino IF you meet both of the following criteria:
1) You plan to buy a property for less than $800,000
2) You have not owned a home in the last 3 years
There are additional qualification requirements; to find out more details, send an email to email@example.com.
FYI, there are additional specific benefits for people who are 55 or older, blind or disabled, as well as those who and plan to sell in Santa Clara County and buy a home for the same price or less in Santa Clara County or one of six other participating counties in the Proposition 60 & 90 program.
Currently, the limited-time tax credit available to first-time homebuyers buying a property in 2010 has an important caveat: the home MUST be in contract by April 30, 2010, and it absolutely must close by June 30, 2010 to qualify.
This window is only open for a mere 40 days. Is NOW Your Time to Buy a Home in San Jose? Just Call (408) 252-8900 for a free, no-obligation consultation. We'll give you our honest opinion on whether buying a home during this special time will benefit you.
