Jacksonville FL Real Estate Update: July 2009

Time is running out for first time home buyers tax credit

Time is running out for First Time Home Buyers to take advantage of the $8000 Tax Credit.  Remember, also, that "First Time Home Buyer" means anyone who has not owned a principle residence within the preceding 36 months.

You only have until November 30, 2009 to find a home, secure financing and close the transaction
to receive your $8,000 tax credit/downpayment.

While that may seem like plenty of time, the fact is that a large number of homes for sale in our Jacksonville, Florida market are "short sales" and although their name says "short" it actually takes a long time to work through the process and close on these homes.  If you choose a short sale listing today, it could easily take up to the last minute to finalize and close.

The bottom line is that if you are a first time home buyer you need to get very serious about finding the right home NOW.  We can save you a lot of time, energy and money by doing all the footwork for you. 

We will help you locate the home, decide on a price offer and terms and then negotiate the sale all the waay through closing... and our services don't cost you a dime.  The seller will pay our commission at closing.

What are you waiting for?  Call now and let's get started - Don't leave $8000 sitting on the table!
