Extended Homebuyer Tax Credit Information

Extended Homebuyer Tax Credit Information.

So maybe you haven’t heard but Congress recently extended the homebuyers tax credit.  That is great news for first time homebuyers and move up buyers alike!  That is right the new tax credit also includes move up buyers who have lived in their current home for at least 5 of the last 8 years.  There is other criteria that needs to be met that I will review below.

Great homes like this one are eligible for homebuyers tax credit.

Great homes like this one are eligible for homebuyers tax credit.

Overall this is great news for homebuyers, sellers and the entire real estate market.  With low interest rates, great affordable home values and now the extension of the tax credit, it truly is a great time to buy!

The Extended Homebuyer Tax Credit

• Extends the First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit of up to $8,000 to first-time home buyers until April 30, 2010.

• Expands the credit to grant up to $6,500 credit to current home owners purchasing a new or existing home between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010.

Who Qualifies for the Extended Credit?

• First-time home buyers who purchase homes between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010.

• Current home owners purchasing a home between November 7, 2009 and April 30, 2010, who have used the home being sold or vacated as a principal residence for five consecutive years within the last eight. To qualify as a “first-time home buyer” the purchaser or his/herspouse may not have owned a residence during the three yearsprior to the purchase.

Which Properties Are Eligible?

The Extended Home Buyer Tax Credit may be applied to primary residences, including: single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and co-ops.

How Much Is Available?

The maximum allowable credit for first-time home buyers is $8,000.  The maximum allowable credit for current homeowners is $6,500.

How is a Buyer’s Credit Amount Determined?

Each home buyer’s tax credit is determined by two additional factors:

1. The price of the home.

2. The buyer’s income.

Price

Under the Extended Home Buyer Tax Credit, credit may only be awarded on homes purchased for $800,000 or less.

Buyer Income

Under the Extended Home Buyer Tax Credit, which is effective on November 7, 2009,  single buyers with incomes up to $125,000 and married couples with incomes up to $225,000—may receive the maximum tax credit.

These income limits have changed from the 2009 First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit limits. If you or your client purchased a home between January 1, 2009 and November 6, 2009, please see 2009 First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit.

If the Buyer(s)’ Income Exceeds These Limits, Can He/She Still Get a Credit?

Yes, some buyers may still be eligible for the credit.

The credit decreases for buyers who earn between $125,000 and $145,000 for single buyers and between $225,000 and $245,000 for home buyers filing jointly. The amount of the tax credit decreases as his/her income approaches the maximum limit. Home buyers earning more than the maximum qualifying income—over $145,000 for singles and over $245,000 for couples are not eligible for the credit.

Can a Buyer Still Qualify If He/She Closes After April 30, 2010?

Under the Extended Home Buyer Tax Credit, as long as a written binding contract to purchase is in effect on April 30, 2010, the purchaser will have until July 1, 2010 to close.

Will the Tax Credit Need to Be Repaid?

No. The buyer does not need to repay the tax credit, if he/she occupies the home for three years or more. However, if the property is sold during this three-year period, the full amount credit will be recouped on the sale.

Information courtesy of the National Association Of Realtors.

I hope that you find this information helpful.  If you have any questions, need more information about the tax credit or want to buy or sell your home please visit my website 24/7 or  contact me.  I am here to help

Our Own Little Rockefeller Plaza Right Here In Raleigh – First Annual Winterfest!

Our Own Little Rockefeller Plaza Right Here In Raleigh

I will never forget when my husband took me to New York City one holiday season and we went to Rockefeller Plaza and watched the skaters skate around under the world famous Christmas tree. It was such a fun and memorable scene that I will never forget. Well when I read the below story I was so excited that I had to share it!

Our Own Little Rockefeller Plaza Right Here In Raleigh

Our Own Little Rockefeller Plaza Right Here In Raleigh

What Raleigh has done with Downtown and Fayetteville Street is very exciting. They have done a great job making a fun destination for the entire family and that will definitly be the case this holiday season. Below is information from the article that gives more details about the Raleigh Winterfest and of course the most exciting part – the outdoor ice rink! Our own little piece of New York City right here in Raleigh. I can’t wait to take the family down there. I probably won’t be skating but I sure will take it all in and enjoy the atmosphere. I hope to see you down there. Feel free to contact me with any more needed information about this event or Downtown Raleigh or visit the Winterfest website for more details.

MAYOR ANNOUNCES THE FIRST ANNUAL AT&T RALEIGH WINTERFEST

The start of a new holiday tradition in Raleigh

The kickoff for the First Annual AT&T Raleigh Winterfest, a two-month long holiday event, will be combined with Mayor Meeker’s Tree Lighting on the evening of Friday, December 4, 2009 in City Plaza located in the 400 block of Fayetteville Street. Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker announces, Winterfest is sure to be a treasured Raleigh tradition.  Opening night will run from 5 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Friday, December 4 and will feature an outdoor ice rink, performances by local choirs and bands, talented figure skaters and a multitude of other entertainers, a visit by Santa Claus, a reading by Ira David Wood III (star of Theatre in the Park’s A Christmas Carol), delicious food and drinks, a dazzling holiday tree lighting and a country music headliner that will soon be announced. This FREE community-wide kickoff event will be followed by two months of additional programming at the AT&T Raleigh Winterfest Ice Rink.

President and CEO of the Downtown Raleigh Alliance, David Diaz, says, “We are thrilled to be producing the AT&T Raleigh Winterfest. This will be an event like no other in our region because of the variety of entertainment, the scenic location of the ice rink that uses natural ice, and the duration of the event. For the kickoff event on Friday, December 4 we are bringing a national headliner and an impressive and diverse collection of local and regional talent.”  The location City Plaza is situated in the center of downtown Raleigh. Though the City Plaza was not modeled after Rockefeller Plaza, the AT&T Raleigh Winterfest will bear a strong resemblance to it not only because of the outdoor ice rink but also because it is located in the heart of our central business district.

Fuquay Varina has no shortage of fun events this Halloween weekend.  Thanks to the downtown Fuquay Varina website for all the below information.

How did we look for homes before the Internet?

The Power of the Internet in Real Estate

The answer to that question is the good old fashion way meaning a lot of driving around and looking.  Not that it is a bad thing, but in today’s world it’s nice to have that search narrowed down to say 3 homes before you get to the driving around and looking part.  Today’s stats say that the Internet is the first stop computerfor homebuyers.  “According to a study from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) 84 percent of all buyers identified the internet as a source in their home search including 87 percent of first-time buyers, 82 percent of repeat buyers, 79 percent of new home buyers and 85 percent of buyers of previously owned homes.” Wow those are some staggering stats! Read a lot more great information from an Economist’s Danielle Hale’s article from the NAR site. When you read stats like that you truly do wonder what we did in the real estate world before the Internet.

Raleigh and The Triangle’s Real Estate Internet Resource

When I decided to leave new homes sales for general brokerage it was information and stats like the above that made me realize I wanted to offer my clients all the tools they needed to utilize the power of the Internet in their home search!  I am confident that my Live In Raleigh website has done just that!  Let me walk you through some of the many resources on my Live In Raleigh website that will make your home search an easy one.

I Love the Parade Of Homes

Parade of Homes Logo

I have always loved the Parade of Homes time of year.  Along with all the great houses to see and real estate opportunities it means that Fall has arrived.  Fall not only means Parade of Homes but it means football is in full swing, cool crisp fresh air fills the day and nights and pumpkins and apple cider are everywhere!  I love my summer and the beach but not sure if anything beats the fall.

Parade of Homes features many beautiful homes to see!

Parade of Homes features many beautiful homes to see!

Parade of Homes is a great opportunity to spend some time touring the Triangle, checking out new homes and neighborhoods.  Triangle builders like to show off what is new and popular with home building especially trends with floor plans, landscaping, interior features and Energy Star & Green Building benefits.  It is also a fun time to get new decorating ideas.  It is fun to see what paint colors are popular and get ideas on finishing items like window treatments.  The other great part about Parade of Homes is all the different styles of houses and price points you can see.  Maybe you only want to see ranch style homes or you want to focus on homes that are perfect for a growing family.  I always love to spend at least one afternoon walking into the Million Dollar homes to see all the beautiful touches that make these homes breath taking.    Now if you are in the market for a new home then Parade of Homes is the ultimate time to buy because builders are offering parade only specials that can turn out to be very lucrative.  Whether it be builders offering a significant upgrade allowance or help with closing costs, Parade of Homes makes it a great time to buy.  To check out all the 2009 Parade Homes and to search by style, builder, price or neighborhood please check here.

Are You Ready For Some College Football Here In The Triangle?

My husband is beside himself.  This week for him is like the week leading up to Christmas day for kids.  Saturday is his Christmas Day because it means the start of College Football.  Lucky for him I love college football season as well!  The Triangle is a great place to spend Falls because of the great weather and three ACC College Football teams competing right here in our backyards – well not literally in your backyard but if that does happen for any reason let me know and I can recommend a good landscaper to re sod your back yard :)!

There is nothing like going out to a football game on a clear, clean, crisp Fall Saturday to join family and friends tailgating before the game.  The smell of grills cooking yummy foods, football’s sailing through the air, flags flying high and your favorite drinks flowing make College Football tailgates the place to be on any Saturday in the Triangle.

We are very lucky in the Triangle to have 3 Division 1 teams playing some great football in the ACC.  Regardless of who you root for there is bound to be some great college football action in the Triangle this Fall!

Kenan Stadium is a beautiful place to watch college football.

Kenan Stadium is a beautiful place to watch college football.

The Tarheels are on the rise and projected to be in the hunt for the ACC crown this year.  If you have not been to Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill then plan a Saturday to go because it is one of the most beautiful stadiums in all of college football.

The Wolfpack are also a top contender this year with their quarterback Russell Wilson one of the top QB’s in all of the ACC.  NC State fans can tailgate with the best of them in college football.  They open this Thursday night against South Carolina on national TV so safe to say it will be a wild Thursday evening out at Carter Finley Stadium.

The Wolfpack and their fans will be fired up and ready to go Thursday night!

The Wolfpack and their fans will be fired up and ready to go Thursday night!

Last but not least here in the Triangle are the Duke Blue Devils.  It is a fact that Duke football has struggled for attention but head coach David Cutcliffe has definitely fired up the team and the fan base out in Durham.

Now I can’t leave out my alma mata Elon University, even though they are technically not in the Triangle, they are still only about 1 hour away and they will be one of the best teams in the tough Southern Conference this year.  Hopefully this will be the year they beat Southern Conference power and rival Appalachian State.  If you want to see a great high powered offense then be sure to watch an Elon game this fall!

Finally I have to mention my husband’s (he did help me write a lot of this blog!) favorite team the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.  The Notre Dame fight song usually starts playing about 8:00am in our house and does not stop until well after the game is over!  He is confident that this will be a great year for the Irish and trust me we will be watching every play.  Regardless of what you think of Notre Dame I can say first hand after going to a game in South Bend that if you like tradition then you will love Notre Dame football!

I have said it over and over again but the TRIANGLE is a great place to live.  The list why continues to grow and College Football in the Triangle is another great item to put at the top of the list.  When I am not showing houses on Saturday then I know I will be watching college football live or on TV.  And if we need to work your home search around your favorite teams schedule on a Saturday then no problem because I know how it is!

I am here to help your home buying or selling process now or in the future so please let me know how I can help.  Good luck to all of the Triangle’s College
Football teams this Fall!
