Hello Kathy,


The Tax Credit was expanded for the First -timers and the repeat buyer s like my other colleagues mentioned this doesn't apply to any investment properties.

Hi Kathy. A couple of the answers you've already received are on point as the Fed tax credit does not extend to investment property. Having said that, the major problem is you'll be hard pressed to find any abundance of Condominium properties in your price range and specific location. A bit of flexibility for location can produce options.

I am aware of property that fit your price criteria but we would need to talk at length. I am always happy to work with serious, pre-approved customers. Feel free to contact me anytime. Regards.

The tax credit unfortunately does not include investment properties; with that said if you are unsure as to where to buy, now is the time to explore-- visit a few areas--check out transportation, shopping, dine at local eateries and check anything else of importance to you, then take it from there. The ultimate decision is yours and yours alone.

Please keep in mind that the first time homebuyer credit is not for investment properties.
If you would like to buy something, one place to start is on the website for MLS Long Island, that covers Queens as well. Go to http://www.mlsli.com. You can get an idea of what is around in your price range. I am sure you will also get answers from realtors, and that is another good thing to do. Speak to a few different realtors, and find the one that you click with.
If you would like advice on financing this purchase, please feel free to give me a call.
