Good Monday Morning!

Last week Hamilton County saw 83 go under contract while Marion County saw 264! These are the numbers we are looking for!

The $8,000 tax credit for first time home buyers has given rise to a vastly increased number of sales for this buyer group.  This credit offer ends soon, but there is talk of an extension.  Currently developing is an abundance of pressure on legislators to enact a $15,000 tax credit for all home buyers. This was proposed as a part of the initial economic stimulus package but was cut. The thoughts here are that every single home transaction puts about $63,000 directly into the local economy. Economic recoveries have always begun with housing.  It would make sense for lawmakers to direct stimulus money right into and onto main street. If you agree, talk to your representatives, they do listen.
