Thank you for your question. The average home buying transaction takes about 60 days. Therefore, to comfortably meet the April 30 deadline to be under contract and close by June 30, buyers should be shopping now. If you have specific questions about this would affect your taxes, check with your tax accountant or attorney.

Basic information for 2010 Homebuyer Tax Credit on our website: http://coldwellbanker.com/servlet/News?action=viewNewsItem&a…

Being pre-approved for a mortgage is the most important step for the success of your home search!
Preapproval is also the foundation for your negotiating position with sellers. You need to find your purchasing power prior to searching properties.

As of now, The tax credit applies to homes purchased on or after January 1, 2009 and April 30,2010. If a binding contract is signed by April 30, 2010 and it settles by June 30 2010 it will qualify.
go to http://www.irs.gov for details and talk to an accountant to see how it applies to you.
There are specific conditions that have to be met.

The 2009 $8,000 tax credit expires December 01, 2009. Which means qualified buyers MUST CLOSE ON OR BEFORE Monday, NOVEMBER 30, 2009. Keep in mind that it can take up to 45-60 days to close - from the effective date of the sales agreement.

Hello Lalla,

The actual date to have purchased your home and able to take advantage of the tax credit is November 30, 2009.

If you haven't already found a home by now, you probably won't be able to take advantage of the tax credit now. You don't want to rush out and pick a home just to take advantage of the tax credit.

There is talk about extending it so stay tuned.

If you are interested in keeping up with what is going on with the tax credit, feel free to read my blog at http://www.reneepporsia.com

If you have any questions about the home buying process, I would be happy to answer them. Feel free to contact me.

Tax Credit:

You need to act quickly to take advantage of the tax credit.

If you do not already have one I highly recommend you contact a Realtor to partner with and create a buying strategy and narrow your search which will save you time and money.

I have some contacts in that area, please let me know if you would like names.

You must close on the property before Dec. 1st which means that last day to actually close is Nov. 30th which is the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend.
