Okay we've got 2 weeks to find a home and get into contract to be in a position to take advantage of the First Time Home Buyer's Tax credit. Get into contract by April 30th and then close before July 1st can it be done? Is it possible to be Merrick NY Real Estate for Sale $400,000 to $800,000 dollars in that amount of time?
Anything is possible but is it practical? If you've been out in the market and have seen most of the current inventory you could get lucky with a home that is listed in the next few days. Why because you've seen what is out there and you are in a better position to strike, you're now educated and can make a decision on Merrick NY Real Estate for Sale $400,000 to $800,000 dollars.
But what if you're just starting thinking about Merrick NY Real Estate for Sale $400,000 to $800,000 dollars, can you find a home in less than 2 weeks? Again anything is possible but you will need to dedicate the next few weekends to seeing as many homes as you can. Sounds easy but there is a lot that needs to be considered, the shear logistics of this can be a nightmare. My advice here is don't go it alone call a Realtor and leverage them.
My suggestion to all my buyers has been this, it would be great to be in a position to take advantage of the tax credit but it shouldn't be the reason that you purchase a home.
Trust me I know that $8,000 dollars is not a small amount of money and that it can go a long way helping with closing costs and other associated expenses with the purchase of a home. My point is don't settle; find your home one that you will be happy with for several years don't let the money interfere with a solid decision.
