REAL ESTATE STIMULUS: The program designed to boost home buying by offering thousands of dollars in tax credits for homebuyers is drawing to a close.
DEADLINE APPROACHES: Contracts must be signed by May 1 and the deal must close by July 1 to get the credit.
HOW MUCH CAN YOU GET: Up to $8,000 credit for first-time buyers who haven’t owned a home for at least three years or up to $6,500 for those who have lived in their own home for at least five consecutive years but want to move.
