Home Buying in California>Question Details

Maureen, Home Buyer in Valley Village, CA

If first-time homebuyers purchase before December 1, 2009 they will receive an $8,000 tax credit, but what

Asked by Maureen, Valley Village, CA Tue Mar 3, 2009

happens if they purchase after this date? Is there any kind of incentive for 2010?

Help the community by answering this question:


At this time there is nothing that I have seen that would extend into 2010. But I would assume that depending on what is happening with the nation's economy, there will be proposals for programs that may assist Buyers.
You may also want to find out if there are any local incentive programs, or assistance programs for 1st time home buyers. I know here in Milwaukee County they have downpayment assistance programs for buyers that are within certain income levels.

All the Best to You!

Hi Maureen, nothing yet past 2009, but I guessing we won't be out of the woods come the end of 09 and perhaps it might be extended.

This chart provides an "old vs. new" FTHB tax credit summary:

One additional incentive is CA based, which runs from 3/09 to 3/1. Hhere are some informative links detailing the plan that applies to new, never-occupied houses and condos bought between March 1, 2009, and March 1, 2010:
