Here are some bullet points and explanation on how the stimulus package (The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) will affect home buyers. President  Obama is expected to sign this bill into law today  in Denver, CO.  An important area of the bill that was reduced was the proposed $15,000 home buyer tax credit.  The credit was cut down from $15,000 to $8,000, but is an improvement over last year’s $7,500 tax credit.  If  you are looking for a house or would like to contact me about the “Stimulus Package” please feel free to give me a call or e-mail me your question.

 Here are some bullet points of the HOME BUYER TAX CREDIT:

  •         Lesser of 10 percent of purchase price of home or $8,000
  •       Applies to purchases after 1/1/09 and before 12/1/09
  •       Primary Residences
  •       Available to individuals making up to $75,000 or $150,000 for joint returns
  •       First Time Home buyer (may not have owned a primary residence in the past 3 years)
  •       No repayment required, unless home is sold within 3 years
  •       Can utilize credit if using state/local bond financing 

Randy Huartson, Helen Sosso (Prudential Palms Broker) and I have recently returned from 2009 Real Estate Connect In New York City. The  7th annual event was actually our first time for the Jim Soda Group. This conference is where the leaders in finance and technology come to discuss change and innovation within the real estate industry. Timely topic-driven panels and practical workshops provided our team with some new tools and techniques we need to take The Jim Soda Group and Prudential Palms Realty to the next level. I concentrated on internet marketing while Randy spent time in the blogger workshops. Helen kept herself busy meeting her many influential contacts within the industry and staying abreast of the changing real estate landscape. Below is the “How to” we covered in NYC:

How to better Market Listings Online

How to get ahead of the competition

How to Build an Effective Website

How to Integrate New Technology into our Business

How to Leverage a Great Database to Build our Business
