It’s a GREAT time to buy a new home!

Okay- stop – just listen – then you make the decision.   

1.  First Time Home Buyer Tax Credits have been extended…that’s $8000 for first time buyer to make house payments with, furnish their new home, replace the carpet or other updates, etc.

2. Existing homeowner receive a $6500 Tax Credit when purchasing a new home if they have resided 5 consecutive years within the last 8 years in that property as their primary residence.  That’s $6500 to put back into the mortgage to reduce the principle. 

3.  If you receive a Tax Credit, file an amended tax return for the immediate Tax Credit money.  You do not have to wait until 2011 for the money.

4.  Prices on homes are lower than they have been in years, you get more house for your money.  More could be something newer, smaller, different location, or just bigger.

5.  There is an large inventory pool to choose your new home from.  Choose from resales, new construction, foreclosures, or short sales.

6.  Interest rates are around 5%.  If you presently have a 7% rate a higher price home could be the same payment.  You may reduce your house payment.

7.  The Tax Credit for existing homeowners is for any purchase including downsizing.  Here is you chance to make the move you have been putting off.

8.  Money is available for mortgages, new guidelines coming will make if harder for some people in the future to qualify for loans. 

9.  Tax Credits have a time limit…you must have a written binding contract to purchase in effect by April 30, 2010 and until July 1, 2010 to close the sale.   

So does getting the type of home  you want – moving up, change in area, downsizing; at a lower interest rate; plus possibly receiving a tax credit…make you understand why we think it’s a great time to buy a new home?

Another Happy New Homeowner – Ranch Condo

Just closed on the sale of another Woodstock home.  The buyer is thrilled with her new home and can not wait to move in.  The home is located in a wonderful ranch condo community off Highway 92.  The seller was terrific to work with – they left all the window treatments and a very clean home. 

One of the reason the purchaser choose this area to relocate to was the tax exemption for Senior citizens.  Additionally, the neighborhood was convenient to shopping, friends, and work.  Purchaser and loan officer stayed in constant communication during the loan process so when interest rates went below 5%  the purchaser quickly elected to lock in the 4.85% rate.  So convenient location, great interest rates, and larger home make this another satisfied homebuyer.

If you are looking for a ranch condo you may want to consider The Willows.  Presently there are several homes for sale in the neighborhood.  We are proud to have sold several homes here.

$6500 Tax Credit for Existing Homeowners Purchasing A Home

With the signing of the Extended Home Buyer Tax Credit existing homeowners may now qualify for a $6500 Tax Credit.  This new legislation is time sensitive and unfortunately does not apply to all existing homeowners.  Here are the importanta points to know…

  • Who qualifies – current home owners purchasing a home between November 7, 2009, and April 30, 2010, who used the home being sold or vacated as a principle residence for five consecutive years within the last eight qualify.
  • Time Limits – as long as a written binding contract to purchase is in effect on April 30, 2010, the purchaser will have until July 1, 2010 to close.
  • Income Limits – single buyers with incomes up to $125,000 and married couples with incomes up to $225,000 may receive the maximum tax credit.  The credit decreases for buyers who earn between $125,000 and $145,000 for single buyers and betweeen $225,000 and $245,000 for home buyers filing jointly.  The amount of the tax credit decreases as his/her income approaches the maximum limits.  Homebuyers earning more than the maximum qualifying income – over $145,000 for singles and $245,000 for couples are not eligible for the credit.
  • Price Limits – credit may only be awarded on homes purchased for $800,000 or less.
  • Repayment of  Tax Credit – there is no repayment of the tax credit if the purchased property is occupied for three years or more.  However, if the property is sold during this three-year period, the full amount of the credit wil be recouped on the sale.

Now you know the facts.  What does it mean….

  • You receive the Tax Credit by purchasing a home.  You are not required to sell your current home – just make the new home your principle residence for 3 years.
  • You can purchase a property for a higher value or lower value than your present home.
  • You must act now…April 30 is the deadline for having a house under contract
  • Upon closing the new home purchase you can file an amended tax return for an immediate $6500 Tax Credit.

So remember…

  • The present low prices and mortgage rates will not last forever!
  • Here is the opportunity to “move” to your dream home!
