Time is running short for people who want to take advantage of the homebuyer tax credits.  There are two homebuyer federal income tax credits: the first-time homebuyer tax credit of up to $8,000, and the move-up homebuyer tax credit of up to $6,500. Both come with deadlines.

To collect either tax credit, buyers have to have homes under contract by April 30. That means that both buyer and seller must have signed the purchase contract by that date. After that, there’s another deadline: The transaction has to close by June 30.  If you want to collect the tax credit, don’t wait until the last half of April to begin looking for a house. Yes, it’s possible that you could do it all in a couple of weeks: find a house that you like, negotiate a price and secure mortgage financing. Possible, but not probable.

“Don’t wait till the last minute, and be prepared to stay on top of things from the very outset,” says Neil Garfinkel, a lawyer with the law firm of Abrams Garfinkel Margolis Bergson LLP, on New York’s Long Island.  Read the rest of this entry »

“I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you and the rest of the staff at LGI Homes.  Thank you for giving up that Friday night to answer all of my questions and assure me that I was doing the right thing.  You took your time and you were even willing to take me back out to the property one more time to look.  You explained the process of buying the home and what we could expect around every corner and to date you were right on.  During this short journey every time I called you about a concern I had it was handled and I would just like to thank you for that.  I know that I seem to be a little critical but a home is a big investment and you want it to be right so that you can enjoy it for a long time.  It has been a pleasure working with all of you and I hope everyone has the same great experience we had.”
