Breaking News - May 14, 2009 - First Time Homebuyer Credit To Be Used For Downpayment

First-time homebuyers will soon be able to access their $8,000 federal tax credit when closing on a home through a short-term bridge loan that will cover their down payment on FHA-backed loans.

The Federal Housing Administration will soon publish a policy that will allow FHA-approved lenders, HUD-approved non-profits, and state and local housing finance agencies to "monetize" the tax credit through short-term bridge loans, Secretary of Housing said Tuesday.

This is a great time to be buying a home!!
