Super Open House Weekend – March 20 and 21
This event is an opportunity for REALTORS to showcase their MLS-listed properties for sale, so prospective buyers can easily see a wide array of available homes for sale on the same weekend.
So mark your calendars for the Super Open House Weekend Event, March 20 and 21.
Homes will be available for viewing from approx. 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Times will vary for each property. More information will follow, as the Open House homes are identified closer to the March 20-21 dates.
The Open House program March 20-21 and educational sessions the week before (see below) tie in perfectly with home buyers saving tax $$.
A federal tax credit has been extended by Congress for home sales contracted by April 30, 2010, and close by June 30. It has been expanded to include more eligible buyers. It now includes, beyond first-time buyers, current homeowners who have lived in their homes at least five consecutive years during the past eight years, and buy another home to live in. Current homeowners do not have to buy a more expensive home to qualify for the tax credit.
The first-time buyers credit is for 10% of the purchase price, with a maximum tax credit of $8,000. Repeat buyers have the same basic program, but the maximum tax credit is $6,500. Income limits apply, but are robust amounts. For full details, see our blog article that fully explains the Tax Credit in detail.
