The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has plenty of good news for first time home buyers that buy between January 1 and November 3, 2009. See yesterday's post for more information. One new detail has emerged that I didn't know yesterday. If a buyer takes the tax credit, it doesn't need to be repaid if they stay in the house for three years or more. If they sell before three years, the tax credit will be repaid from proceeds of the sale of the property.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have not owned a house in the past three years and are considering a purchase.
