First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit may be extended and made available to all home purchasers.

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

There are several proposals in the works to extend or build on the current $8000 tax credit for buyers that are first time homebuyers. The current credit ends in November, but the new proposals would extend the credit and possibly allow for all buyers to take advantage of the credit through 2010. First time homebuyers currently make up to 40% of the buyers that are buying. Certainly extending the credit and allowing all buyers to participate in the program would have a positive effect on the current housing market difficulties. We have seen many Salem Oregon buyers that are first time home buyers decide to purchase a home to take advantage of the credit and also the historically low interest rates that we have seen the past few months. This has helped to boost sales activity in the local Salem Oregon Real Estate Market.

I will be updating this blog as more information comes available.

It's that time again-HBA 2009 Tour of Homes

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Hard to believe that it is already time for the Tour of Homes again. This year has really flown by! I’m always excited for the Tour of Homes to roll around. You don’t have to be looking to buy a home to benefit from visiting the tour homes. The homes are great resources if you are considering some remodel work to your home, or even just repainting the interior or exterior. Visiting the tour homes is a great way to see which new popular colors are being used for interior and exterior painting.

Be sure to visit the New Product House to see all of the newest products available for homeowners. This years New Product House is located at 4942 Periwinkle Dr. SE in Salem.

You can access all of the tour information online including a map of the tour homes. Hours of the tour are 12 pm to 6 pm on the weekends, and 6 pm to 9 pm on weeknights.
