As I write this at 4:45 PDT, our local news station, along with several lenders and title companies are reporting that the Homebuyer’s Tax Credit has passed and will be extended to April 2010.
While that’s GREAT news, it’s not quite right yet, from what I can see.
Looks like the Senate has agreed to pass a resolution that would extend the $8,000 tax credit to First Time Homebuyers, a $6,500 tax credit for repeat homebuyers, both with qualifying issues.
However, a vote hasn’t actually taken place that passes the resolution as a stand-alone bill. At the moment, it’s hung up on the premise that it’ll be tagged onto legislation to extend unemployment benefits, although it appears that it’ll pass the Senate even as a stand-alone bill.
I’m holding off the celebration until it’s signed around! And I’ll be the first to let you know — that way we can ALL celebrate!
