The Tax Credit Alternatives

It has now been over 4 months since the Federal Government Home Buyer Tax Credit has expired.  There are still real estate professionals and home buyers mourning the loss of the $8,000 incentive.  The opportunity, however, is not gone just because the Government no longer offers it.

With a little creativity with the sellers and your lender, we can up with your own 'tax incentive plan' and save well over $8,000!

  • Buy down your interest rate.  An rate buy-down can save you tens of thousands of dollars over the life of the loan.
  • Ask the Seller pay for your closing costs and/or concessions.
  • Negotiate for a lower price.  We at Signature Realty have been successful in negotiating as much as 6% below the seller's asking price for buyers in this market.
  • Get in on the historically lower interest rates!  Today's interest rates are the lowest in 40 years.
The money you make and save using a combination of any or all of these opportunities will make a measly $8,000 look like chump change.
