$8,000 Home Buyer Tax Credit

The clock is ticking fast toward the deadline to qualify to use this fantastic opportunity!

The home buying process takes a certain amount of time to get from Point A to Point B.

Your first step is to get with a mortgage company and determine exactly how much home you qualify to purchase based on your income and debt ratios.  Then your Realtor can do a search in the MLS to see what homes are available in your price range that meet the criteria that applies to your particular lifestyle.

The process of elimination iss to narrow those homes down via the Internet to your favorites and then set up appointments to view the homes in person.

Once you have found the perfect home for you, you and your Realtor will negotiate an acceptable agreement between you and the seller of the home.  You take that agreement to the Mortgage Company and they begin to the process of preparing your mortgage.  In the meantime you will take care of getting an inspection of the property to have a clear understanding about the property’s conditiion and start packing for your move.  The mortgage process typically takes approximately 30 to 45 days.
