As the song goes " Time keeps on ticking, ticking in to the future"

The first time home buyer tax credit allows a buyer to enter an agreement with a seller by April 30, 2010 and close on the house by June 30, 2010. First time home buyers are defined as anyone who has not owned a home for the past 3 years. First time home buyers will get up to $8,000 tax credit. Other home buyers, who have owned their current home for at least five years, are eligible for a $6,500 tax credit.

Income limitations $125,000 for single filers and $225,000 for joint filers. The purchase price of the home must be less than $800,000.

There it is, the clock is nearly striking midnight on this fantastic offer for first time home buyers. It is still possible but you must get an accepted offer on the home you want within 10 days.

Let go of your attachment to the home

Ready, Set , Sell

Every seller wants their home to sell quickly and bring top dollar. While there are some factors you can't control, like neighborhood popularity and market fluctuations, you can help your house put on its best face for showings and open houses. Before any physical preparations, you first need to prepare yourself emotionally. Begin to dissociate yourself, and decide to let go of your attachments to the home. From now on, this is a house you really want to sell, not your own beloved home.
