Now is the time!

  There are some great incentives out there for buyers at present time that shouldn't be ignored.  The $8,000 tax credit for first time homebuyers is still in play until April 30th, 2010.  The $6,500 tax credit for "move up" buyers was put in play last Nov. and is also available until April 30, 2010.  Those incentives coupled with historically low interest rates means that buyers should make their move sooner rather than later.  Indications are that interest rates may go up in the near future and FHA may enact some more conservative guidelines as well.
