This prestigious award recognizes outstanding Broker/Owners who demonstrate extraordinary commitment and loyalty to their RE/MAX Associates, employees and clients. “Elaine Johnson is a valued and trusted member of the RE/MAX Network and truly exemplifies what a Broker/Owner should be,” said Saba Swamy, Franchise Development Consultant for the RE/MAX Southwest Region. "Her commitment and dedication to her Associates is unparalleled. She genuinely cares about her team and all of their success. I am so pleased to have Elaine as a member of the Southwest Region and I look forward to the continued success of RE/MAX Classic Realty under her leadership."

Getting financing when real estate prices drop About.com

Loans change constantly. The only variable that remains the same is financing, but rates, terms and conditions fluctuate. What was vogue years ago, might not hold true in a slowing marketplace. • Make Sellers Pay Down Your Interest Rate It's true, on top of price, you can ask a seller to pay down the interest rate on your mortgage. • FHA Loans are Popular Once Again Yes, FHA loans have made a recent comeback in falling real estate markets. Plus, the requirements are more lenient, so sellers won't shrink away from your offer.

• Mortgage Lender Choices Sellers don't have the right in buyer's markets to insist that you choose their lender. Here's how to find your own financing at the most competitive rates available. • Best Time to Lock a Loan Often the Fed decreases rates that affect mortgage rates when the market stalls. Should you wait before locking a loan rate? How long? • How to Avoid Shady Lenders Predatory lenders lurk in the shadows and prey on innocent victims. Don't be bamboozled by them. When the market swings back toward a seller's market, and it will, your strategies will change. But until appreciation begins to spread its wings and soar, these tips should keep you moving in the right direction.

The tax credit for making energy efficient homes improvements is not 30% of the cost of the improvements up to a maximum of $1,500. This means that if the improvements cost you $4,500, you owuld recieve a tax refund of $,15000 when you file your tax returns. Eligible improvements include energy efficient exterior doors and windows, insulation, heat pumps, furnaces, central air conditioners and water heaters. Generally, your home improvement contractor and/or the manufacturer selling the improvements issues a certification that clarifies whether the improvements meet the necessary standards for energy efficiency. Most modern windows, furnaces, and air conditioners meet these requirements. If you’ve been holding off on making some of these improvements, now is a great time to get a move on it - especially with all the great deals that are being offered. BENEFIT #2

The tax credit available to first time home buyers was increased from $7,500 to $8,000 for homes purchased between January 1,

2009 and December 1, 2009. Also, the credit no longer needs to be paid back as long as you live in the home without selling it for at least 3 years. The previous version of the credit expired July 1, 2009 and required home buyers to pay the funds back over a 15 year time frame. The income limitations remain the same ($75,000 for single tax payers claiming the cull crdit and $150,000 for married tax payers), as do most other qualification requirements. Also, the credit remains refundable. This means that first-time home buyers who owe less than $8,000 in taxes for the yera are still eligible for the full $8,000 credit when they file their tax returns. In that case, the IRS will write you a check for the difference between $8,000 and your actual tax bill. In fact, the credit can be claimed on your 2008 tax returns that you file by April 15, 2009 , even if you buy the home in 2009. There is one catch, however, if you bought the home in 2008, the credit remains $7,500, and it still needs to be paid back over a 15 year timeframe beginning in 2011 when you file your 2010 returns. Benefits 3 & 4 will be printed the in the next issue of LasCrucesMoves.com

Stimulus plan faces confidence test By Ilyce Glink Inman News Service

It's been a busy session for Congress: After debating a $15,000 tax credit for all homeowners, the House and Senate finally agreed on an $8,000 tax credit for first-time homebuyers who qualify under income guidelines. That's better than the $7,500 tax credit that was passed last fall. And the way the new stimulus package is written, you won't have to pay the tax credit back in $500 increments over 15 years. In fact, the homebuyer would get the $8,000 credit with no payback requirement. The world of stimulus, investment, Wall Street and the credit markets is moving so fast, it's tough for a weekly columnist to keep up. But in its final form, the $787 billion stimulus package aims to give taxpayers some additional help by providing a payroll tax credit of $400 for low- and middleincome workers ($800 for couples), expansion of the child tax credit, expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit, further relief of the marriage penalty, incentives for buying new cars (including light trucks and SUVs),

and relief of the alternative minimum tax (AMT) that would have snared as many as 26 million taxpayers in 2009. Will it work? That depends on what the problem is that you're trying to fix. I've long felt that there is both a serious financial component and an emotional component to the current crisis. Fixing the financial failings of Wall Street and Main Street won't necessarily cure the crisis of confidence and trust that lingers. It isn't just that Americans don't trust the high-paid bankers on Wall Street. It's that they no longer trust themselves to make smart, long-term decisions for their family's future. They are second-guessing the most basic financial moves they've made. Consider three letters that recently arrived in my inbox: Letter 1: A single mom in California used a 40-year loan to stretch her finances and buy a house for $500,000 that's now worth $350,000. She's paying her bills but wonders whether she's possibly made the dumbest move of her life. Letter 2: A divorced woman wonders if she made her own dumbest move by asking for the house based on its valuation when

she divorced in 2005 -- rather than getting half of her ex-husband's pension. The house is worth 30 percent less -- if she can even sell it. Letter 3: A husband/father wonders whether he'll ever climb out of the hole his family has fallen into, now that he has lost his job and is on the verge of losing his house to foreclosure. He is contemplating a life of not even qualifying to rent a house in his neighborhood of choice, not because he can't afford it, but because he doesn't know who would want to rent a home to someone with his credit score These three individuals, the families they're connected to and the thousands of other Americans who write to me each week are all wondering what money moves they should be making right now. Should they stay in their homes or sell? Should they buy or rent? Should they keep contributing to their 401(k) plans at work, or contribute to a Roth IRA, or keep it in their mattress at home? (I'm not a big fan of stuffing your mattress with money, due to the risk of fire and flood. Safe deposit boxes are better -you'll be safe even if the bank goes under.) It's becoming clearer that the mantra on

www.lascrucesmoves.com • 05

Regaining trust in system will take work

Capitol Hill to "Do something, anything" is the call of people desperate to help, but who are unsure whether the help will actually solve the problem.

A few things are clear: If people have jobs, they'll pay their mortgage, taxes and other bills. If they don't, they'll choose food and fuel over a mortgage payment or credit card bill every day of the week. If they can't afford to pay for COBRA after being laid off, they won't carry health insurance. And if they get sick, they'll head for the emergency room -- and perhaps after that bankruptcy court. But with our self-esteem tied up so closely with our net worth, you almost want to see Oprah lead a class on how to reprogram financial trust back into our lives. Because if you don't have faith that the next 10 years in this country will be better than the last, it's a big leap from there to buying a house and sinking roots into a community.
