My mother passed away in November of 2008. She left me her house, and I recently had the title transferred into my name so I could put it on the market. I am also the executor of her will, and have not lived in the house since it has been mine.. my intention was always to sell the house. I don't think I could live there because of all the memories, and it's frankly too much house for me.
Meanwhile, I have been on a hunt of my own for a home, I am awaiting an acceptance on a short sale now. I was counting on the first time home buyer's credit (I'm 29 and this will be my first home) to help with growing pains, but then it occured to me - does the fact that my mother left me her home after death dis-qualify me from being a first time home buyer? Thanks a lot
