Kay Baker Wilmington NC Real Estate | Wilmington New Homes Search | Covering Wilmington, Brunswick County and Pender County | Tax Credit for Military.

Last year the tax credit got extended for certain military, foreign service and intelligence community until April 31, 2011 with the closing of the home to be by June 30, 2011. 

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 residence 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.   There is still time if you would like to look at homes in the Wilmington NC area.  Start looking on www.cbbaker.com and call or email us to get started.

Tips for selling your home in Wilmington, NC

Tips for selling your home in Wilmington, NC.

If you haven’t received any offers on your home you’re probably facing the question of what to do.  And if your house stays on the market too long without selling it can begin to appear “stale” and can actually damage your future chances of a sale.

How long is too long?  In a dry market, a sales period of six months to one year isn’t unusual. Look at recent sales reports of similar homes in Wilmington, NC nearby to determine a reasonable selling interval. In a hot seller’s market, a house that hasn’t sold within one month indicates a problem. In either case, there are several steps you can take before putting up the white flag.             

  • Videotape your house, inside and out, and watch the tape as if you were a prospective buyer. Is the lawn weedy or the garden bare? Is your home uncluttered and spotlessly scrubbed? Sparkling-clean houses sell faster than those that look too lived-in or show an abundance of the owner’s personality.   Read More Here
