Online PR News – 11-December-2009 – – A newly expanded Federal tax credit program, extended for a limited time, combined with historically low interest rates and the upcoming debut of The 2010 New Home Collection, makes now a great time to buy a new home within the Villages of Irvine®. Excited homeshoppers are anxiously awaiting the grand opening, and already thousands of excited homeshoppers have visited www.VillagesofIrvine.com to learn more about the extraordinary collection of new homes.
The existing Federal tax credit program of up to $8,000 for first-time buyers has been extended beyond its current expiration date of December 1, 2009, but only for a few months. In addition, the same program has been expanded beyond first-time homebuyers to include up to $6,500 in tax credits to existing homeowners who have owned their homes at least five years.
In order to qualify for the Federal tax credits, buyers must sign home purchase agreements by April 30, 2010, and take possession of the homes by June 30, 2010. Additionally, the income eligibility limits to claim the full credit amounts for both groups of homebuyers have been raised to $125,000 for individuals and $225,000 for married couples.
“The newly expanded Federal tax credit program provides a larger group of homebuyers with the opportunity to make a new home purchase,” said Tom Veal, vice president of Residential Marketing and Product Planning for Irvine Company Community Development. “Plus, now that The New Home Collection is preparing to premier soon, homebuyers can enjoy the benefits of the tax credits, making this a great time to buy a new home and enjoy all the advantages of living within the Villages of Irvine®.”
