And, remember, Congress is extending the $8,000 stimulus package to first time home buyers and buyers who have not purchased a personal residence within the last 3 years. Also an extra bonus to home buyers is a $6,500 stimulus to homeowners who have owned their home for 5 years and would like to purchase a personal residence. Both stimulus plans require that the buyer be under contract by April 30. 2010 and close by June 30, 2010. If you have been thinking about purchasing your first home or a move up home, NOW is the time to do it. Call us and we can get you information on the latest listings, foreclosures and short sales.
