Home buyer credits and rebates that never expire…
Today, April 30th, marks the last day to buy a home and get the federal tax credit. Homes for Heroes discounts and credits never expire! In fact, through the Friends of Heroes program, the discounts continue far after the closing.
Minneapolis – April 30th, 2010 – Homes for Heroes® offers large savings to local heroes when buying or selling a home. With the Spring housing market here, Homes for Heroes is gearing up to serve as many heroes as possible. Homes for Heroes aims to help close the gap between the cost of housing and buyers in the following groups: military personnel, police officers, firefighters, teachers, first responders and others who serve our community and nation.
Homes for Heroes is celebrating its ninth year of bringing big savings to everyday heroes. Inspired by the hometown heroes who serve and protect their communities and our country, a partnership of Realtors, mortgage lenders, title companies and appraisers created Homes for Heroes, Incorporated. The sole purpose of this collaboration of real estate professionals is to offer savings when buying or selling a home. With the May launch of sister program, Friends of Heroes, community vendors outside of the real estate related profession can offer discounts to heroes for savings beyond the closing. This offers local businesses the opportunity to show its community that they are proud of your local and national Heroes and set their company apart from the competition.
Police Officer, soldier, and Homes for Heroes spokesperson Katie Blackwell returned from serving alongside her husband, Steve, in Iraq with the National Guard. Through her efforts in distributing information about the program to fellow soldiers, Homes for Heroes has been able to assist soldiers returning home, matching them to enthusiastic real estate affiliates eager to support our troops by way of great benefits offered by the program. We are ramping up quickly to align with the debriefing and reintegration initiatives at several military bases in anticipation of the large amount of returning troops.
Ruth Johnson is one of the founding members who started Homes For Heroes, Inc. in 2001. “We all share an admiration for the people who serve our community and our nation selflessly and we wanted to recognize and show our appreciation in a meaningful way, “said Johnson.
While the program’s genesis and primary concentration originally was intended to serve the Minnesota real estate market, word of the Homes For Heroes benefits spread throughout the country. With the far-reaching power of the Internet, this originally local-only effort spiraled into a growing nationwide program. Homes for Heroes is now in 25 states and hopes to be in all 50 by the end of the year.
