sudler-sothebys-logo23 October 2009 ?For buyers who want to take advantage of the First Time Home Buyer Credit that expires November 30th, 2009, this weekend is probably your last chance to get under contract to meet the deadline. The National Association of Realtors® has been lobbying on behalf of their members to extend and expand the tax credit program. Overall, the program had a positive effect on the housing market including those related to trades and professions associated with housing transactions. Some are directly involved in the transaction such as the Realtor®, lender, title company, appraiser, inspector and attorney. Others are at arm?s length like, the handyman, plumber, contractor and home stores that get the benefit of what the new buyer needs to buy for their new home. Unfortunately there are always a few who try and get what they are not entitled to leading to Congress to look at questionable claims.
