Speak to your tax consultant--Legislation extends the First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit of up to $8,000 to first-time home buyers until April 30, 2010; contracts must be executed before May 1, 2010 and must close before the end of June 2010. Annual income limits raised from $75,000 to $125,000 for singles and from $150,000 to $225,000 for married couples; must be for a primary residence—check IRS Code for qualifying conditions.

Yes you must have an offer accepted by April 30th and close no later
than June 30th. At this point you can almost certainly rule out short
sales from the equation (if that was a consideration). You should still
have time for conventional and foreclosed purchases if you hurry. Good

Yes, it is. But, a Buyer has to have a purchase agreement in place no later than April 30, 2010 AND the purchase has to be complete no later than June 30, 2010 (meaning the Buyer must own the home by June 30, 2010). Josh, start looking for a home now to make sure you start "shopping" now, as you need to find a home you like soon, so you have plenty of time to make the April 30, 2010 deadline. You need a Buyer's Agent to assist you. The Buyer's Agent assists you in your home search & will look out for your best interests, but the commision is paid by the Seller. So, the assistance of a Buyer's Agent is at no charge to you.
