Today is it folks if you want to take advantage of the Home Buyers Tax Credit. April 30th is the last day to get a signed sales contract and it must close by June 30, 2010 to qualify. FNMA will still have a special offering through a few lenders in various regions for up to a 3.5% credit against closing costs paid, but the up to $8,000 ends today. Check the FNMA.com site for details.
If you are lucky enough to get the contract today, you can apply for a loan later. Just keep in mind the loan must close no later June 30th.
