I have attached a a link about a tax credit for first time homebuyers. It may not apply to you, but it is useful information for anyone you know whom it does. I had heard about it previously, but had not seen the details. Specifically I did not know there was a recapture clause, and that theoretically the government should recoup a majority of this money over time. Now there is an attempt to cancel the recapture clause facing Congress, so keep an eye on this if you think it could help you.
