Will the $8,000 tax credit be extended?

April 9, 2010

According to my sources the $8,000 tax credit will NOT be extended. There simply is not enough money available to extend this first-time home buyer tax credit. So it is now or never folks. If you’d like to benefit from this tax credit you need to be under contract in the next few weeks and closed by June 30, 2010. This means short sales aren’t going to work. Concentrate on traditional sales and bank-owned or you will miss the tax credit. Anyone that tells you that you can go under contract and close on a short sale by June 30, 2010 is either under the influence of something exotic or completely inexperienced with short sales.

Directory of 55+ Housing Communities

April 3, 2010

55+ communities in FloridaI’ve found a really great site for researching which Florida housing communities are for people aged 55 and up. The Florida Commission on Human Relations updates their Directory of 55+ Housing Communities weekly so you can expect their site to be a solid resource.

Search The 55+ Housing Directory by county or city. As an example here are all of the 55+ Communities in Pinellas County. Here are the 55+ Housing Communities in Hillsborough County, and finally here are the 55+ Communities in Pasco County. Of course, you can search all counties in Florida too. I just happen to work almost exclusively in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco.
