The Government created a tax credit of $7500 for first time Buyers. This Tax credit expires in 6/30/09 unless extended. The fabulous rationale for said credit is that first time buyers will be more motivated to become eligible for this to buy a home. And there couldn’t be a better time. IN the next 9 months, I fully expect our market to begin the stabilization period. We do not know what interest rates will do in the future but right now, today, they’re hovering around 5% for buyers with credit scores that are the best.

Their down payment requirements for FHA is approximately 3.5%. Check this link out regarding the tax credits:$FILE/chart_homebuyer_tax_credit_.pdf
