Hi Cathy,

If you are buying a buying a house with cash, you can still get the $8,000 credit if it is your first home within 3 years. My website gives you access to bank owned poperties at the following link. You will find great properties usually at a significant discount.:


There are many other great features for buyers on the site.

A cash deal has the potential to close much quicker than an ordinary deal. Call me and together we will find you a great deal and get it closed as quickly.

Simply for buying cash, you can offer a discount if you can close in 10 days. Sometimes the discount is substantial - I offer all-cash, no contingencies, close in 10 days - for that, depending on condition of the property, I can obtain 30 to 50% discount (amounting in the tens of thousands of $$) on the comp value of the property.

Good morning! You are absolutely entitled to an $8000 tax credit as long as you have not owned a home in the past 3 years. I believe you have to close in November or before to be entitled to the credit. Let me know how I can help you.

The other Realtors are correct in that all of the same stimulus packages are the same whether you finance or purchase w/ cash. If you are an investor it might be wise to leverage your cash with mortgages (since the rates are below 5% right now and the interest is tax deductible - speak with an accountant for exact details)

There is nothing wrong with purchasing w/ cash especially for your primary residence however many folks are taking advantage of the low interest rates which could be considered a stimulus. If you purchase with cash then you would miss out on the low interest rate "stimulus."

Call me if you would like to talk numbers

As long as you have not owned a home in the past 3 years you will qualify for the $8000 tax credit. There is not a requirement that you use a mortgage to purchase.

If you are looking for a home now is a great time. Prices are starting to climb on the lower end but there are still some great values. If you would like to see some available homes please contact me and I will be happy to email you homes that meet your needs. I look forward to speaking to you..
