I agree! Unfortunately I rarely ran into a prosprective buyer who was aware of the $7500 tax credit. I hope many buyers don't miss out on this excellent opportunity too!

Here is a summary of this BIGGER and BETTER tax credit for home-buyers taken from http://www.federalhousingtaxcredit.com:

Enhanced Tax Credit Provides Outstanding Opportunity for Home Buyers

In its efforts to stimulate the economy and revive the housing market, Congress has enacted legislation providing a tax credit of up to $8,000 for first-time home buyers(buyers who haven't owned a home in the last 3 years).

But time is of the essence for buyers who want to take advantage of this opportunity. Only homes purchased on or after January 1, 2009 and before December 1, 2009 are eligible.

Buyers didn't seem terribly aware of the old $7,500 tax credit, so we'll see about this one. This one is clearly better in a number of ways, mainly that it's a true credit and not a 15 year no interest loan.
