Ummm. Hey RJ@M&M.com. Do your homework before saying rush rush rush.
I am not an agent and do not have any ties to agents, brokers, etc. I do live in the Roaring Fork Valley.
BUT: The 1st time HBC is good 1/1/09 - 11/30/09. It is 10% of purchase price or $8000 (cap). Single buyers need a modified adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less to qualify for the full credit, that's $150,000 for married couples. Those earning more than these thresholds may be eligible for reduced credits. The tax credit is "refundable," qualified buyers can take advantage of it even if they don't have that much tax liability. (you can possibly use it as a down payment) Buyers have to own the home for at least three years in order to capitalize on the credit. If they sell the home before then, they will have to return the credit to the government.
Claimer: Someone that makes a claim that they have been there and done that, can do anything you can do better than you. I hate "claimers"
