If you are thinking of selling your home in the near future...

In North Texas, there are less homes on the market (less competition) than at anytime this year. Supply and demand is in your favor. The inventory of available homes peaked in June and has been going down ever since.

Houses are about to get at least $6500 cheaper!

The U.S. Senate & the House of Representatives have extended the existing $8000 tax credit for 1st time homebuyers until May 1,2010. A new $6500 tax credit will be available for repeat buyers who purchase between Dec. 1, 2009 and May 1, 2010. To qualify, buyers must have used their home as their principal residence consecutively for 5 of the previous 8 years.

Income limits are $125,000 on a single return and $225,000 on a joint return.
