News from the Real Estate world

Well the Tax credit window has closed, and we are waiting to see what congress will do today. There is serious talk about a new $6,500 tax credit for NON first time buyers. The only condition that I am aware of is that you need to have been in your current residence for a minimum of five years. We will see if the FTHB credit is extended (rumor is contract by April 30th, Close by June 30th,) What new stimulus may be in store for the rest of us.

Also, I am going to get on my soapbox for a minute about Health Care reform. We are way beyond the curve with the dismal state of our current system. Please I beg you to take a stand and get on YOUR soapbox and DEMAND reform. I am talking about simply a fair equitable health care base to ensure that everyone gets basic care, and the right to a healthy life. A plan that does not allow people to lose their life savings when they get sick. That allows young couples to have care for their pre-born and new born children. A plan that allows for prevention, testing and affordable medicine. Take the power away from big business who is withholding this from us, and put it in the hands of the health care providers so they can administer care NOT BILLING.

We are a rich and intelligent nation. We are entitled to an education in this country, to a fire department to save our home when it is attacked by firre, and a police officer to respond when we are threatened by criminals or speeders who put our life in jeopardy. Why are we not entitled to care when we are attacked by viruses, and debillitated by disease? The American dream is more than owning a home. DEMAND it, speak up and make your legislators heed your call!!
