          Now and again I run across something so fun or funny I just want to share it. Here's one I found on Twitter.Seems Justin is living with his 73-year-old dad and tweets things his dad says. Warning on the language but, fun all the same.
          I've enjoyed what he has to say so far and look forward to hearing what's said next.
          Enjoy
        • First-Time Buyer Tax Credit Expires Nov 30th, For Now….

          No featured image
            For the most part I think buyers should keep in mind the extension has NOT passed.
            If you are looking to take advantage of the tax credit, just plan on closing before November 30th.

            First-Time Buyer Tax Credit Extension Possible Bills to extend the maximum $8,000 tax credit for first-time home buyers, which expires Nov. 30, are pending in both the U.S. House and the Senate.
            Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, a Connecticut Democrat and chairman of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, is co-sponsor of a bill with Georgia Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson that would raise the credit amount to a maximum of $15,000.
            Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid of Nevada favors an extension of the current credit.
            He was quoted by the Las Vegas Sun saying, "It's something we can get done."
            Odds are that the credit will be extended and broadened to cover all buyers next year, but the chances of the amount increasing aren’t as good, observers say.
