  POSTED BY THE WALL STREET JOURNAL TODAY 10/29/2009 Wall Street Journal 10/29/09   WASHINGTON -- Senate negotiators reached a tentative deal to extend a tax credit for first-time home buyers, but its passage remains uncertain. The agreement would extend the existing credit for first-time home buyers, worth up to $8,000, while offering a new credit of up to $6,500 for some existing homeowners, Senate aides said. The reduced credit would be available to all home buyers who have been in their current residence for a consecutive five-year period in the past eight years. The new provisions are aimed at broadening availability of the credit beyond first-time buyers and giving the weakened real-estate market a bigger boost while preventing real-estate investors from benefiting. Many property ...

On November 30 the $8,000. Federal Tax Credit for first time homebuyers will expire.  This stimulus has helped the real estate and building industries the last several months, as it has allowed markets to reduce some of their inventories, and brought action to buy from many who were sitting on the fence to see what happens with interest rates and prices.  The problem was the limited scope of the program.  I've written previously that this stimulus should have been offered to any buyers regardless of of their status, and the price range of the home purchase (as long as it primary residence, or home used by a family member, such as inlaw or dependent in college).  This would have relieved much more inventory and at fairer prices to the sellers, allowed people who wish, or need, to relocat...
