Lennar Advises Prospective First-Time Homebuyers That Time is Running Out to Take Advantage of the $8,000 Tax Credit

Homebuilder has homes available for immediate closing in Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Columbia, MD, September 23, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Lennar, one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, is urging prospective homebuyers to not miss the opportunity to take advantage of the government first-time homebuyers tax credit that is expiring at the end of November.

Currently, the Maryland division of Lennar is offering a select number of move-in ready homes available for immediate closing at several of its communities located throughout Maryland and Pennsylvania.

“Prospective first-time homebuyers need to act now and stop waiting on the sidelines before it really is too late to take advantage of this incredible opportunity,” said Jonathan Tepper, Director of Sales and Marketing of Lennar’s Maryland division. “What prospective first-time homebuyers need to realize is that in order to be eligible to receive this government tax credit they must close on the home in November.”

Any prospective buyer that has not owned a home in the last three years may qualify to receive this government tax credit of up to $8,000. It is not a loan and there is no re-payment. Lennar is also assisting eligible buyers if the home does not qualify for the tax credit by offering to take $8,000 off the sales price of the home in select communities.

Right now in the Washington metro area, Lennar has homes available that qualify for the tax credit opportunity in Gateway Commons. The community located in Clarksburg offers townhome-style condominiums and townhomes priced from the $100s.

In Southern Maryland there are single-family homes and townhomes available in Fairway Village in Waldorf that are priced from the $200s, homes available in the Heritage at St. Charles active adult community in White Plains that are priced from the $200s and homes available in the Summerwood single-family home community in Accokeek that are priced from the $300s.

Lakelands at Easton on the Eastern Shore has townhomes with garages available for the tax credit that are priced from the $190s.

In the Baltimore metro area, Lennar has two communities with homes available for the tax credit. The Snowden Overlook II active adult community located in Columbia has luxury villas available that are priced from the $400s and Tanyard Springs in Glen Burnie has townhomes with garages available from the $190s.

In Pennsylvania the Iron Bridge Landing community in York has townhomes with 2-car garages available that are priced from the $150s and the Salem Run community in Dover has townhomes with garages and decks available from the $130s.

All Lennar homes come with an array of features and upgrades included as standard in the home purchase price.
