October 27, 2008 // Franchising.com // Morris Plains, N.J. – The Housing and Economic Recovery Act's $7,500 tax credit for first-time homebuyers presents one of the best times in recent history to make the dream of homeownership a reality. To help prospective first-time buyers understand the advantages of this limited-time tax credit and capitalize on the financial incentive before it is no longer available, Weichert, Realtors will offer a nation-wide tax credit seminar on Saturday, November 15.
Weichert, Realtors, along with its affiliate companies, Weichert Financial Services and Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc., will host the tax credit seminar for first-time homebuyers in each of its more than 500 company owned and franchised offices. The seminar is designed to educate first-time homebuyers on the specifics of the tax credit created by Congress and the other benefits of buying a home in the current market.
This free, no-obligation, special seminar, beginning at 11:00 a.m., will include a brief presentation followed by a question and answer session. An experienced tax professional will be on hand at each seminar to provide an overview of the $7,500 tax credit and to explain the tax benefits of owning a home. Weichert managers and sales associates will also review the current market and illustrate why now is an excellent time to buy. To reserve your seat at the tax credit seminar, call your local Weichert office.
"Our seminar will explain the details of the new tax credit for first-time homebuyers," said James M. Weichert, president and founder of Weichert, Realtors. "The current market already presents a tremendous opportunity for first-time buyers as interest rates remain historically low, home prices continue to be more affordable than in recent years and there are numerous homes to choose from. With the added incentive of a sizeable tax credit, it would be hard for me to resist if I was a first-time buyer."
