Did FHA Just Throw First Time Buyers in Front of the Bus for a PR Gain?

 Welcome Back Readers! 

I apologize in advance for the negative tone of this post, but it is information that people who plan on buying this year need to have.  Let me start with this:  There are many solutions available to FHA’s problems, and there are other programs that allow cash poor buyers to still purchase homes.  It is not the end of the world, FHA is still a fine program, but I have an issue with their changes not offering a solution to their problem. 

Call me if you want to find out how low money down programs can still benefit you, in the meantime please be aware of the following info.

FHA has announced policy changes today that will potentially have a negative impact on the housing market.  Read on after the jump to see excerpts from a release by NAR:

Extending the Home Buyer Tax Credit – So Close, Yet So Far Away

Here is the headline from the AP Story that ran yesterday “Senators agree to extend homebuyer tax credit”.  Look spretty good, doesn’t it?  Reading that, you would think we were in the clear, tax credits for everyone!   Well, I hate to close up moonrain on everyone’s parade, but we still have a long way to go.
