Hi James,

It sounds like you bought your home in 2008 - the credit in 2009 and 2010 wasn't exactly $7,500. If that's the case, you'll likely have to repay the $7,500 upon sale of the house. There are a few exceptions to that rule, however.

I'd be happy to discuss with you further if you'd like. Feel free to contact me any time.
