Update on First Time Homebuyers Tax Credit

Senators agreed Wednesday to extend the current tax credit for first time home buyers while offering a reduced credit for repeat buyers who have owned their home for at least five years.

Although this bill has not been finalized yet, here are the details of what is expected to pass:

  • First time home buyers can receive a tax credit of up to $8,000 if they have not owned a home in the last three years.
  • Repeat buyers can receive a tax credit of up to $6,500 if they are purchasing another primary residence and have owned their current home for at least five years.
  • In both cases, the sales agreement must be executed by April 30, 2010 and the transaction must close by June 30,2010.

This is NOT yet law.

As more details become available, we will be sure to post them here.

Looking for a realtor ® to sell your property in Trinity, Florida?

By , October 11, 2009

For sellers

Currently more than 84% of home searches start on the internet, according to the National Association of Realtors ®. Visibility is the key when selling your home. How will your home stand out? Selling your home in today’s housing market requires more than listing it in the local Multiple Listing Service. It is a buyer’s market and the homes for sale are at record levels. You need a realtor ® who will help make your property stand out from the others.

As your realtor ®, we will assist you in all stages of the home selling process from determining a fair market value using a Comparative Market Analysis to the marketing of your home and purchase offer through closing. We will help coordinate advertising; locate serious, qualified buyers through a wide range of sources; open houses; professional home inspections by a licensed home inspector; generate bi-monthly progress reports; and contract negotiations. We will also handle showings, monitor the escrow process,  and follow through with closing and recording.

Let’s begin with an overview of the home selling process:

Step 1: Initial Consultation at Either Your Home or at One of Our Offices in Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, or Clearwater Beach

At our first meeting, we will work collaberatively with you to determine the objectives you want to achieve in the sale of your home. We’ll analyze the fair market value of your property using a Comparative Market Analysis. We will also identify similar properties that have sold recently and are currently on the market.

Step 2: Preparing Your Home for Showings

Together we discuss the best possible ways to attract potential buyers. This can be achieved by keeping the property uncluttered and presentable during showings. Some helpful suggestions for showings may include trimming overgrown bushes, cleaning up clutter, sweeping near the front entrance,, replacing peeling paint, cleaning the pool, cleaning  marks on  interior walls. and pressure washing the walkway.

Step 3: Creating and Implementing a Marketing Plan

The next step is creating and implementing a marketing plan so ythat your home sells for the highest value in the shortest amount of time.

We are full-service marketing consultants. Our goal is to get from “For Sale” to “Sold!” and we aim to get your home noticed.

The implementation of your marketing plan may include taking photos, listing your home in the local Multiple Listing Service , www.Realtor.com, www.FloridaMoves.com, www.ColdwellBanker.com, www.Zillow.com, www.Trulia.com, creating flyers for your property, advertising in the Sunday newspaper, and/or Sunday open houses (if appropriate.)

Step 4: Reviewing Offer and Negotiating with Buyer’s Agent on Your Behalf
We will review all offers with you, negotiate the agreement until the transaction is complete, and walk with you every step of the way.

Step 5: Following Through With the Closing Process

After we negotiate on your behalf to your satisfaction and once the sale goes into escrow we will give you regular updates and inform you of any documents or inspections you may need to provide. With personal service, we will also contact you when the final paperwork needs to be signed to complete the escrow process.

Step 6: After-Sale Follow Up


Lastly, in order to help take the stress out of the selling process we will contact you to make sure all settlement transactions have been fulfilled.

We walk with you every step of the way.
