Testimonial For Sam Cachola

by Phil

Sam Cachola,

I want to start off by saying, thank you for the hospitality and the exceptional service, you and your team of real estate professionals have shown over the last four years of our relationship. The last place I felt I really felt this much trust and confidence was when I was in the Marine Corps.

I know through many of my own personal experiences that people in business, especially in real estate, are about self 99.9999% of the time. Who is to blame them though, times are tough and money can be hard to come by; however, that does not apply to your business strategy, personality or love for your fellow service member/hero(Policeman/Fireman/Nurse/Teacher). I say "love" because that is your driving factor. You love our nation heroes! You do not just throw on a mask and where it temporarily throughout your day, and put on a good skit when the time comes...you truly care! I commend you for that. Your positive mindset, drive and technical expertise topped with free home inspections and the 25% of your commission is absolutely phenomenal!! I want to personally thank you once again for taking care of me, my family , the Davis's, the Rigsbey's and Anthony Roberts over the past four years. I must also tell you my family and I are extremely excited to break the hatch on our new home.

You have not only become a life-long friend but also a hero’s hero!

Semper Fi,

Phi

Military Tax Credit

by Sam Cachola
Home Buyer Tax Credit Extended for Military Personnel 

The popular Home Buyer's Tax Credit has expired for all Americans, except for three very deserving groups: the brave men and women of the uniformed services of the U.S military, members of the Foreign Service of the U.S., or employees of the intelligence community who are actively serving outside of the U.S. on "official extended duty." 

Official extended duty is defined as any period of extended duty outside of the United States for at least 90 days during the period beginning December 31, 2008 and ending before May 1, 2010. 

That's right. Thanks to the Worker, Home Ownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009, which was signed into law by the President on November 6, 2009, qualified military service members have one extra year to take advantage of The Homebuyer's Tax Credit of up to $8,000 for first-time buyers and up to $6,500 for certain repeat buyers. This means qualified military members must be under contract on a purchase by April 30, 2011 and close on the deal by June 30, 2011. 

Qualified military buyers can also utilize this tax credit along with other available benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), making this dollar-for-dollar tax credit extremely financially attractive with today's lower home prices and lower interest rates. That's because the VA allows qualified military borrowers to purchase certain homes in certain areas with no money down and no private mortgage insurance.

To be a qualified first-time home buyer and receive a tax credit of up to $8,000, the buyer and his or her spouse cannot have owned a home in the last three years. Unlike the Home Buyer Tax Credit for civilians, however, the maximum purchase price of a home is $800,000 under this program – anything over that and the tax credit is invalid. The credit phases out for individual taxpayers with modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) between $125,000 and $145,000 or between $225,000 and $245,000 for joint filers. 

To be a qualified "repeat buyer" or non first-time buyer and receive a tax credit for up to $6,500, a buyer must have lived in his or her current residence for five out of the last eight years. The rest of the requirements are generally the same as the $8,000 tax credit. 

You served your country, let us serve you. If you or someone you know is looking to purchase a new home and may qualify for this incredible opportunity, please don't hesitate to give us a call right away.

Extension Of Tax Credit for Military!

by National Association of Home Builders

The Home Buyer Tax Credits Have Expired

The $8,000 tax credit for first-time home buyers and the $6,500 tax credit for repeat home buyers have expired. (However, service members who were on official extended duty outside of the United States for at least 90 days between Jan.1, 2009 and May 1, 2010, may qualify for a one-year extension.)

For home purchases where a binding sales contract was signed by April 30, 2010, otherwise qualified buyers have until June 30, 2010 to complete the purchase.

Although the home buyer tax credits have expired, the National Association of Home Builders will continue to maintain this website as a public service.
