Thank You Congress For Extending The Tax Credit Closing Date

Collier Swecker video blogs a thank you message to the United States Congress for finally passing a bill extending the time for closing until September 30, 2010 for homebuyers who have met all of the qualifications for the First Time and Repeat Homebuyers Tax Credit. As I have mentioned in prior posts, Congress created this tax credit and then failed to ensure that the lenders could actually close the hundreds of thousands of loans that were created by the tax credit. The National Association of Realtors and closing attorneys have been shouting for months that the lenders were so disorganized that there was no way that the lenders could close even a simple loan that only less than a year ago could be closed in 2 weeks! So in summary, I want to congratulate Congress for setting aside their political parties and inflated egos to pass a bill that was necessary for them to keep their promise to hundreds of thousands of their constituents. If you have any comments or questions about the extension of the homebuyers tax credit closing date, email me at or visit my website at
