Wow! I arrived back at the office to receive a flood of news about the Tax Credit Extension.

From Wells Fargo Mortgage:

Tami Luhby, with CNNMoney.com, is reporting that Congress Extends Homebuyer Benefits! Bill Extends Homebuyer Tax Credi Into Next Year. Here’s a snippet below:

“NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — New homebuyers are poised to see the $8,000 tax credit extended into mid-next year.

The legislation extends the $8,000 homebuyer tax credit to contracts signed by April 30 and closed by June 30. The controversial credit, which many say has boosted home sales in recent months, was set to expire after Nov. 30.

The bill also creates a $6,500 credit for those who buy a home after living in their current house at least five years. That measure would apply to contracts signed by April 30 and closed by June 30. The current credit defines a first-time homebuyer as someone who has not owned a residence within the past three years.

The credit would be available only for the purchase of principal residences priced at $800,000 or less.”

 

From Darren James @ Keller Williams Realty:

“Breaking News!!!

As of today-Thursday, November 5th, the bill has passed involving the extension and expansion of the homebuyer tax credit and will be sent to President Obama for his signature. The new program will go into effect when President Obama signs the bill. Click link below for details!!
