Pedro, in order to take advantage of the $8,000 tax credit you have to be under contract by April 30th, and must close by June 30th.

You could also take advantage of a credit for those who have lived in their homes for 5 years, and are purchasing a new home... they qualify for $6,500 credit under the same time constraints. ... more

Dear Karen,

I do not have much experience with the Lynbrook area. But a few of my clients have purchased homes on Long Island with pools. When we contacted the local assesors office, my buyers were told that if they remove the inground pool it will reduce the property taxes. The amount that it reduces the taxes is obviously different from one area/town to the next. If you are working with an agent, I would suggest you ask them their professional opinion on this area or even call the local township to find out approximately how much you annual taxes would be reduced by.

If you decided to remove it, it may become very costly, if you have a property you are interested and you have an inspection done, you may also ask the home inspector their professional opinion to have this removed. There are different types of pool. In the two transactions with my clients, they ended up purchasing the homes and fell in love with the pools.

Good luck. If you have any questions, please do not hesistate to ask. I would be happy to assist you.

To my knowledge--and if I understand your question correctly--there is no "limit" on the age when a person may own or buy a home. Hollywood child stars, for example, buy homes all the time. However, the individual buying a home needs to have the legal "capacity" to purchase a home--in other words, be capable, legally, to buy the home and execute contracts to purchase or create a loan on the home. In order to do that, many states do require that a person be of legal age in order to execute a contract, so depending on your state, the age of consent may be 18 or another age.

Emanicipated minors, individuals who are recognized as adults although under the age of consent, may execute contracts as if an adult. Minors woud probably need a cosignor on the loan and deed to the home. However, for the most accurate information and best advice for your state, talk with a qualified legal professional to ensure that you can purchase a home in New York.

Good luck and happy house hunting!
