Recently this week a $15,000 Tax Credit for any Homebuyer was approved by the Senate. However, the $15,000 Tax Credit that was part of TARP II, a $838 Billion Dollar economic stimulus plan was scaled back to only $8,000 and limited to First Time Homebuyers as part of a compromise between both the Democratic and Republican Parties.
There is also some hope for those Home Owners that are facing Foreclosure. President Barack Obama’s New Treasury Secretary released their plans on a Financial Stability Plan that includes $50 Billion for Foreclosure Prevention Programs. Hopefully I will be able to report more on that later. I have read that this plan may also expand on existing efforts of the Federal Reserve to drive down Mortgage Rates.
What are your thoughts on the new TARP II Economic Stimulus Plan? Do you have a better plan? Let me know I would love to hear your thoughts and the plan you would present to the Senate and House.
