Stimulus Package Contains Substantial Home Buyer Tax Credit

No Comments

On Feb 17, 2009 President Obama signed the much anticipated Economic Stimulus Package dubbed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law. This Stimulus Package has a very substantial tax credit available for first time home buyers. Here the details on the credit:

  • The tax credit is equal to 10 percent of the home’s purchase price up to a maximum of $8,000
  • Available to First Time Home Buyers. A First Time Buyer is defined as someone who has not owned a principal residence in the previous three years.
  • Any type of home that is a principal residence qualifies. This includes single-family detached homes, attached homes like townhouses and condominiums, and mobile homes.
  • Applies to purchases made between January 1, 2009 and before December 1, 2009.
  • The full tax credit is available for Single taxpayers with a modified adjustable gross income up to $75,000 and $150,000 for married taxpayers that file joint returns. A partial tax credit is available for taxpayers with greater earnings.

Now is a very advantageous time to buy a home. Home prices have steadily declined in value in most areas of the country since autumn of 2007. This has resulted in a slew of affordably priced homes available for sale. The $8000 tax credit included in the Economic Stimulus Package gives people another great reason to buy a home this year. Contact Chosad and we can get you pre-approved so you can begin shopping for a new home, or if you are already in need of financing we can help you with that. Give us a call at 604-916-2321.

Mortgage Rates Fall Slightly This Week

No Comments

Mortgage Rates fell slightly this week to 5.16% on average for a 30-yr fixed mortgage according to the latest rate survey released by Freddie Mac. Rates for 15-yr fixed mortgages as well as 5/1 ARM also dropped slightly. This continues a see-sawing of rates in recent weeks since bottoming out below 5% during the second week of January. These are still very solid near record low rates. Click here to see the rate the data thus far for 2009.
