Good news for home buyers who haven't owned a home in the last 3 years and for current home owners who have lived in their home at least 5 years and want to buy a new principal residence. The $8,000 tax credit has been extended for FTHB (first time home buyers) and a new tax credit of $6,500 will be given to buyers who buy a new principal residence and have lived in their current property for at least the past 5 years.

I wanted to write today about a more sober topic we have all witnessed recently. There is no question that there are a lot of foreclosures and distressed owners in Chico. As of September 1st, my associates and I started a foreclosure prevention division in Chico. We are the first division of this type in Chico. We focus on providing options and advice to those in default.

The short answer is no! Many lenders, thus realtors, interpreted the new FHA guideline to allow borrowers to monetize their future $8,000 first time home buyer tax credit for their 3.5% minimum down payment. THIS IS NOT THE CASE! The new guideline allows them to use their $8,000 tax credit for FURTHER down payment (on top of the 3.5% down payment) or for closing costs. Thus making the new guideline worthless in my opinion. Why worthless?

A condo seller who discloses a defect in the property may nevertheless be required to also disclose previous lawsuits regarding that defect. That was the decision recently rendered on February 17, 2009 in the California appellate court case of Calemine v. Samuelson (2009 WL 368648).
