Following the Senate’s approval this week, the House overwhelmingly voted to extend the First Time Home Buyer’s credit program from November 30th 2009 until April 30, 2010, and include benefits for current homeowners as well.
From the FOX 5 WTTG news station, courtesy of Melanie Alnwick (FOX 5 Money Reporter), “There is now a $6,500 credit for existing homeowners. They must have lived in the home for five years of the last eight years, and purchases must be less than $800,000. Income limits were also increased. Now couples making up to $225,000 and individuals making up to $125,000 can qualify. The National Association of Realtors reported that pending home sales rose in September for a record eight straight months. Vice President of Research Paul Bishop says 1.8 million people have taken advantage of the stimulus already, and it would like to see the momentum continue.”
Ingrid Myers, Realtor in Loudoun, Prince William, Fairfax and other Northern Virginia and Maryland locations, says “it’s a huge deal”, and many people waiting in the pipeline to buy homes will likely be motivated to buy now.

According to this FOX 5 Northern Virginia Real Estate News report, “There’s a glimmer of hope for the housing market mess that’s hit millions of Americans. Sales of existing homes did better than expected in the month of July, and experts say that’s fueled in part by a hot foreclosure market” – reports Melanie Alnwick, anchor and special news reporter on Fox 5 News.
