Colleen Lane, Realtor®, Broker, Tri Cities WashingtonThe First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit With the first time homebuyer deadline drawing to a close I am starting to see a certain "˜frenzy' of first home buyers wanting to get in on the action.

On the contrary, making the wrong choice in a house can potentially cost you more than $8,000.   I suppose if someone is planning on purchasing anyway the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit is a nice side benefit, but I am seeing an inordinate number of buyers wanting to buy just for the tax credit. Actually, I think the flurry of activity going on in the market right will drive prices up…
