Deadline is Approaching to Receive the $8,000 Tax Credit

Do you want to get the $8,000 tax credit? Better Hurry. Time is running out on cashing in on the $8,000 tax credit for buying a home. With short sales averaging 90-120 days to close and normal closings taking 30-45 days that doesn’t leave much time to look at homes, negotiate offers, do inspections, appraisals, loan approvals, and get your home closed. To qualify for the $8,000 tax credit, you must be a 1st time homeowner or have not owned a home in the last three years. The big deadline is you are required to meet is you must  be closed on your home by Dec 1 2009.

While this sounds like a long time away, if you are like most buyers, you don’t want to spend every day looking at houses so this means weekends.  Since there are only a few weekends left to meet the closing process timeline, time is getting short to qualify for the credit.
