Let me tell you how to get the $8,000.00 rebate

Bringing the Dream of Homeownership Within Reach

As part of its plan to stimulate the U.S. housing market and address the economic challenges facing our nation, Congress has passed legislation that grants a tax credit of up to $8,000 to first-time home buyers.

Here is some information about how the 2009 First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit can help prospective home buyers become part of the American dream.
Who Qualifies?

First-time home buyers who purchase homes between January 1, 2009 and December 1, 2009.

To qualify as a “first-time home buyer” the purchaser or his/her spouse may not have owned a residence during the three years prior to the purchase.
Which Properties Are Eligible?

The 2009 First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit may be applied to primary residences, including: single-family homes, condos, townhomes, and co-ops.
How Much Will the Credit Be?

The maximum allowable credit for home buyers is $8,000. Each home buyer’s tax credit is determined by two factors:

The price of the home—the credit is equal to 10% of the purchase price of the home, up to $8,000.

The buyer's income—single buyers with incomes up to $75,000 and married couples with incomes up to $150,000—may receive the maximum tax credit.
If the Buyer(s)’ Income Exceeds These Limits, Can He/She Still Get a Credit?

Yes, some buyers may still be eligible for the credit.

The credit decreases for buyers who earn between $75,000 and $95,000 for single buyers and between $150,000 and $170,000 for home buyers filing jointly. The amount of the tax credit decreases as his/her income approaches the maximum limit. Home buyers earning more than the maximum qualifying income—over $95,000 for singles and over $170,000 for couples are not eligible for the credit.
Will the Tax Credit Need to Be Repaid?

No. The buyer does not need to repay the tax credit, if he/she occupies the home for three years or more. However, if the property is sold during the three-year period, the credit will be recouped on the sale.

Diversify,diversify,diversify! Warren Buffet and Bill Gates are buying businesses and stocks. fight inflation, and purchase something tangible! Businesses, real estate, gold,antiques,art,diamonds these are all tangible. Real estate, and art prices are low right now.

The 8,000 dollar tax break on new home purchases is only for this year. Then who knows?

The featured listing today is not a short sale or a REO.

This business has producing Lychee, Longan and Rambutan trees, plus a large warehouse, office, and worker living quarters.
Longan, also known as "Dragon eye" are considered a prime fruit, with huge demand by consumers.(a farmer friend of mine calls Longan trees "money trees") These fruit trees are growing in deep silty clay loam soil, close to the ocean, an ideal site for these crops in beautiful Hakalau.
14.43 acres of thriving, exotic tropical fruit, sounds like a good investment to me!

The "Green" water tank in puna

The water catchment system on my property.

The humble puna water tank was in the news, recently, and got some of the credit it deserved.
Many consider it an inconvenience, but I actually prefer it! It is "green"(mine is really green) it helps the property owner to be independent, it prevents some erosion, and obviously conserves water.
Come to Hawaii, and you can build a home out of recycled materials, grow a garden all year round, plant an orchard, and eat fruit all year round. You can go completely solar, and catch your own water! Go snorkeling in January!
