Another way to get the home buyer credit...
Let's see, taxes were due yesterday and the home buyer tax credit is another 15 days away before expiring. You have until April 30th to be under contract and close by June 30th to receive the consumer bail out.
Don't feel bad if not going to be able to take advantage of the credit. You shouldn't buy a home just to get the refund. Only buy a home if you're ready and life's circumstances dictates it. You will probably be able to take the tax credit off the price of the home and avoid all the messy paperwork anyway. That way your loan will be less. And you might be able to get closing costs thrown in as well. So, just be glad it's still a buyer's market and more fabulous buys are out there.
