The Senate has adopted Senator Harry Reid's (D-NV) amendment to the pending jobs and extenders legislation (HR 4213) that would extend the closing date for the homebuyer tax credit from June 30, 2010 to September 30, 2010. The amendment would apply only to purchasers who have satisfied the April 30 binding contract rule for the $8000 and $6500 tax credits. The amendment creates no new eligibility for the credit. Once through the Senate, the bill must go back to the House for their approval before obtaining the President's signature. While the timing remains uncertain, completion is expected sometime next week. Congress will be in session during the weeks of June 21 and June 28, so votes on the legislation are still possible before the June 30 deadline.

Set the example for others and recommit when you slip. Care for yourself and create a positive hab

Top 10 Myths About Buying a Foreclosure and RealtyTrac recently surveyed US adults to get some insight into what people *think* is involved with buying a foreclosure. Here are the Top 10 Myths that came up, and the facts to set the record straight: 1. Foreclosures need a huge amount of work. 92 percent of consumers expressed that if they bought a foreclosure, they would be willing to make home improvements after they closed the deal, with 65 percent being willing to invest 20 percent or less of the purchase price. Although stories of foreclosures missing plumbing and every electrical fixture are very memorable, many foreclosed homes need only the (relatively inexpensive) cosmetics that many new homeowners want to customize no matter what kind of home they?re buying: paint, carpet, etc. 2.
