Please read his question. His post (see title) is asking about the $8000 ***Federal*** tax credit for FIRST TIME home buyers, not the $10,000 ***California*** tax credit for NEW HOME buyers, so your answer is irrelevant. Please read my blog if you don't know about the separate $8000 Federal tax credit.
In regards to the $10,000 tax credit, Yes.....that is available to you. However the tax credit is available for new homes only (a home that has never been lived in before). Hope that helps. In regards to the last answer, it is always a great idea to check with your accountant!.
Since you have answers here that contradict one another, I would suggest that you call your CPA or the person that prepares your tax returns. They should be able to give you a more qualified answer based on your personal circumstances. I hope you qualify, but could not guarantee it.
