Fillmore Offers Tax Tips For Homebuyers

From Daily Eagle:

With less than two months left to take advantage of the federal tax credit, potential Brooklyn homebuyers may want to attend the Tax Credit Seminar sponsored by Fillmore Real Estate on Wednesday, March 24, at its office in Sheepshead Bay.
The event, designed to educate and inform potential homebuyers on how the tax credit may impact their housing decisions, will feature corporate trainer Les Newlands, who will also conduct a Q&A session.
The federal tax credit gives qualified first-time buyers up to 10 percent of the purchase price, or up to $8,000, in credits, and qualified long-time homeowners looking to “step-up” to a more expensive home up to a $6,500 credit if under contract by April 30 and closed by June 30 of this year, according to John Reinhardt, president and CEO.
“This is the most advantageous time to buy a home in many years, thanks to attractive pricing, a great selection of homes to choose from,and very low interest rates,” he said. “The federal tax credit appeals to people who may not have been able to afford to purchase a condominium or co-op, but thanks to this extra boost, now can.”
The seminar, which is open to the public, will be held from 7 to 9 p.m.
Fillmore’s corporate headquarters is at 2990 Avenue U, near Nostrand Avenue.
