I would have rather spent $25K less on the home I purchased, but I'll have to settle for $8K! Had our gov't not instituted this waste of a program, that's what I've estimated I would have saved. Now I'll have to watch the value of my new home decline a bit over the next year or two. Would I support ANOTHER federal first-time home-buyers tax credit? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!! But thanks everyone for the $8K check! I can add it to my moonlighting fund!
