California expands $10K buyer tax credit

First time home buyers are in luck if you Live in the Golden State! California is Extending the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit!

Check out this article just released yesterday by Inman News:

"

The state of California has re-established and extended a $10,000 homebuyer tax credit.

The new law, AB 183, signed today by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, allocates $200 million to the credit for homes purchased between May 1 and Dec. 31, and between Dec. 31 and August 1, 2011. That's twice the amount allocated to a similar credit passed for purchasers of new homes last year. Those funds were quickly depleted and builders have been asking for the credit's return ever since.

The state has extended the new credit to first-time buyers of existing homes as well as buyers of new homes. The funds will be split evenly between the two groups, and buyers will have to occupy the home for at least two years.

The legislation had the backing of the California Building Industry Association and the California Association of Realtors.

"The tax credit will help push prospective buyers off the fence, clear out inventory, and jump-start the homebuilding industry, which will help create jobs and reinvigorate the state's economy," said Liz Snow, the building association's CEO and president, in a statement.

"AB 183 also will significantly contribute to efforts to stimulate jobs creation within California's housing market by helping to incentivize first-time home buyers to purchase homes that have been abandoned, foreclosed upon, and returned to the lender; or have been sitting on the market for extended periods of time," said Steve Goddard, the real estate association president, in a statement.

"It is these homes that will require substantial rehabilitation by the new owners, which will in turn generate a tremendous increase in jobs and accessory purchases connected to home improvement activities,"
