I’m sure you have some additional questions about the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit and Existing Homeowner Tax Credit that I would like to share with you in this FAQ outline from the National Association of Realtors.

The April 30, 2010 deadline may look to you far away now, but with stricter lending guidelines and short sales flooding our Lakeland Real Estate market you don’t want to wait for this deadline to approach. There are still plenty of Lakeland homes for sale and the prices have been decreasing in recent years.  Homes that are priced right will not stay on the market for a long time.
