I have a quiz on my website that you can use to see if you qualify, however, it is still wise to check irs.gov if after taking the quiz on my site you qualify.
Your contract must be accepted (signed by both sides) on or before April 30th 2010 and you must close no later than June 30th 2010.
If you were active military this year, you have a 1 year extension on these dates so that would be the same dates only on 2011.
Hope this helps and best of luck,
You have 2 weeks to get into contract on a house and you must close by June 30.
Call or email me immediately so that I can put together a list of homes in Cambria Heights or other locations you are interested in.You have no time to waste. You should also be pre-approved by a mortgage professional. This will save time and help in negotiating a fair price. If you need help with that I can put you in touch with the mortgage pro on my team.
