The $8000 tax credit (or 10% tax credit whichever applies) for new home buyers has been approved and will not have to be paid back. As a new home buyer, "There has never been a better time to Buy".

In its efforts to stimulate the economy and revive the housing market, Congress has enacted legislation providing a tax credit of up to $8,000 for first-time home buyers. First-time home buyers (anyone who hasn't owned a home in the last three years) can claim a credit worth up to $8,000 (or 10% of the home's value, whichever is less) on their 2009 taxes for a primary residence purchased January 1st, 2009 and December 1, 2009. Unlike the $7,500 credit from the previous stimulus bill, this is a true tax credit, in that it doesn't have to be repaid, as long as the buyers remain in the home for at least 3 years. Single taxpayers with incomes up to $75,000 and married couples with incomes up to $150,000 qualify for the full tax credit.

Homes are selling in Atlanta, Cobb, Cherokee County area.

I am a real estate agent with RE/MAX Town & Country and we are getting busy selling homes.
The homes that are selling are mainly foreclosures. Listen up, if you are a first time buyer "please" let us find you a home now. I can remember three to five years ago when we could not find a home with a list price of less than $150,000. Even at the $150,000, those homes were
very distressed properties. To find a home nice average home a first time buyer would have to spend at least $180,000 and above.

Not today! I had a first time buyer out yesterday and we found a great foreclosure priced at $117,900 in an area that was not in a declining market but one in a stable market. Even though this home is a foreclosure, it has new carpet, new paint throughout the interior, was on a great
lot and was close to the East/West Connector between Austell and Powder Springs Rd. What a deal for this home!

Call me today to find you this perfect home. You can reach me at 404-663-1669. My buyer's
of this perfect house above are getting a loan with BBandT Mortgage through Dee Estrada.
Their rate will be under 5% and monthly payments of around $800 a month with taxes and insurance.

I am waiting to hear from you.
