Tax Payment = Down Payment?

April 22, 2009 - Sylvia Heldreth
A number of real estate and lending professionals are trying to turn the $8000 tax credit from the Federal Government into part of a down payment for first time homebuyers. This seems like a way to help first time buyers who may be strapped for cash buy their first home.

Critics believe that buyers who haven't saved for a down payment and don't have much cash pose a higher risk of foreclosure than those who have had the discipline to save. This might only add to the problem of foreclosures.

What do you think?
