Just a reminder to the Military and their families of Wilmington NC and other towns that  the Stimulus tax credit is still available for members of the Military and other Federal employees that have served outside of the US for 90 days or more anytime from December 2008 to May 2010.   Per the IRS: Members of the military and certain other federal employees serving outside the U.S. have an extra year to buy a principal residence in the U.S. and qualify for the credit. Thus, an eligible taxpayer must buy, or enter into a binding contract to buy, a principal Wilmington NC real estate residence or in any US city on or before April 30, 2011. If a binding contract is entered into by that date, the taxpayer has until June 30, 2011, to close on the purchase. Read rest of story here…

wilmington nc real estate school graduation

Time to celebrate and put money back into our NC schools.  Secretary of Education announced yesterday that NC ws one of the winners for the “Race To The Top” , which is a share of 3.4 Million dollars in Federal financing by being one of the states that outlined the boldest plan for shaking up the school system.  NC school system is going to get $400 million to help reshape North Carolina’s schools. Grants were written and points were given if the state raised their standards for tests and scores.  Gov. Bev Perdue  says that the money will go to recruiting and retaining teachers and staff, turning around low performing schools and technology.  This is great news for Wilmington NC.  The budget has been stretched and this will be a ray of sunshine for our school systems.  The Wilmington NC real estate market focuses on neighborhoods around our schools.  If you would like to look at real estate, please surf www.cbbaker.com 24/7.
