Senate likely to extend homebuyers' tax credit Information taken in part from CNN’s Oct 28th story by Ted Barrett, Dana Bash and Lisa Desjardins

Senate leaders have reached a tentative deal to extend the first-time homebuyers' tax credit that was originally passed earlier this year as part of the stimulus bill, Republican and Democratic sources told CNN on Wednesday. The agreement would extend and expand the credit to include current homeowners who want to move, according to the sources. The original credit in the stimulus bill is set to expire at the end of November and offers a tax credit of $8,000 to first-time homebuyers. Senate sources told CNN they have tentatively agreed to extend that $8,000 credit for first-time buyers until the end of April. In addition, they are adding a $6,500 credit for some current homeowners who buy a new residence by then. To qualify, current homeowners must have lived in their primary residence for five continuous years. Senators have not agreed on how the tentative deal would come up for a vote, but sources from both parties said they are considering adding the housing credit to a bill that would extend unemployment benefits. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has indicated she also is interested in extending the homeowner credit, but House leaders have yet to endorse any one bill. So what does this mean for you? That all depends! If you are a first time buyer OR someone who has not purchased a home in the past five years you’ll be able to take advantage of thousands of dollars of tax credits to get you in to a new home. WOW! If you’re a seller, this is great news because buyers who have been on the fence or unable to make the previous November 30th deadline can still take advantage of the credit once passed.

The current housing market offers unprecedented opportunities for first-time and move-up buyers alike. Call or email me to talk about your best move. Kimi Aghevli
