Bedford NH Market Report - 1/1/09-3/31/2009 First quarter market reports do not typically reflect overall market conditions as weather, the holiday season and the inability to showcase curb appeal and landscaping deter all but the most motivated from listing their properties. The Bedford, New Hampshire real estate market improved in the number of units sold as compared to 2008.  Averaage selling prices fell sharply as did most markets throughout the state.  Real estate is local, so selling prices and activity will fluctuate by community from statewide averages. Visit Hillsborough County Market Reports for first quarter statistics.

The Stimulus Plan was signed into law by President Obama yesterday. It contains a new tax credit for first-time homebuyers. Essentially, first-time homebuyers within certain income limits who purchase a home in 2009 before December 1, 2009 will receive a tax credit of up to $8,000. The program is similar to the $7,500 tax credit which applied to home purchases made in 2008 after April 9.   While the Stimulus Plan was still being debated, the Senate version originally included a $15,000 tax credit for all homebuyers. To lower the cost of the Stimulus Plan, the final version of the Plan contained this smaller tax credit, and this tax credit is applicable only to first-time homebuyers.   To qualify as a first-time home buyer as defined in the programs, the purchaser (and the purchaser's sp...
