Whether you're a first time buyer, or a current homeowner thinking about moving up, moving down, or moving sideways to easier living, this is a great time to do it! Interest rates are still low, the $8,000 first time buyer credit has been extended; and, there is a $6,500 credit for many existing home owners. The deadline for a binding offer agreement is April 30 and the property must close June 30, so time is running out.
