Real Estate Info!

We closed on our latest flip property on Friday morning. I'm glad that house is gone, over, done with, and we have the money in the bank. My hubby and I are already realizing though how bored we get without projects to do. I've been staying busy with my real estate business. The market is starting to pick up for Spring and I have a few closing lined up for March already.

A few tidbits of Real Estate info for my readers:
If you are a 1st time home buyer (or haven't owned in the last 3 years) you can be eligible for the $8000 tax credit that Congress has passed. Here are some guidelines for it.
  • The tax credit is for first-time home buyers only.
  • The tax credit does not have to be repaid. (must be primary residence for 3 yrs)
  • The tax credit is equal to 10 percent of the home’s purchase price up to a maximum of $8,000.
  • The credit is available for homes purchased on or after January 1, 2009 and before December 1, 2009.
  • Single taxpayers with incomes up to $75,000 and married couples with incomes up to $150,000 qualify for the full tax credit.
Pass along to your friends that need to get out of an apartment and buy their first home. Now is a great time.

Also, for a limited time and on a case by case basis, I will be offering some discounted listings. What does this mean?
  • Desperate to sell your house but can't afford the typical 6% agent commission costs? I'll discount my commission to list your house depending on what the need is.
  • This way you can either lower your asking price OR keep more money in your pocket so we can go find you a fabulous new house.
