It is April 30th, the last day you can purchase a home and get the $8,000 tax credit. I am frantically (actually kind of calmly) trying to purchase a home by midnight tonight. I just started looking two days ago. I just got prequalified yesterday. My real estate agent is busy today and cannot help me until 4:30 this afternoon. I will be loyal. I have a mobile home I have to sell so there will be a contingency on the sale. Is this nuts? Probably but I always miss these kinds of special deals. Also intesest rates are so low right now. I have to try. I will post about the outcome.
