The REALTORS Association of Lincoln is reporting the month of September 2009 had a record number of single-family residential listings under contract – 404 is the highest reported for a September. In speaking with a few residential REALTORS, they attribute a large percentage of these to the Home Buyer Tax Credit available for first-time homebuyers.
To further stimulate the housing market, Congress has recently passed legislation extending the home buyer tax credit through April 30, 2010 and expanding the credit up to $6,500 for current home owners purchasing a new or existing home between November 7, 2009-April 30, 2010. Visit with a REALTOR for more details on if you qualify for the credit.
In remarks to the Economic Club of Chicago, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said commercial real estate woes won’t set off a new banking crisis. “That’s a problem the economy can manage through even though it’s going to be still exceptionally difficult.” The global economy has accelerated since the worst of the recession and banking crisis last year, and Commerce Dept. reports show the economy expanded 3.5 percent in the third quarter. “You can say now with confidence that the financial system is stable, the economy is stabilized,” Geithner said. “You can see the first signs of growth here and around the world.” (Source: Bloomberg.com)
