It takes time to find the right Pensacola home for sale that suits your needs. Finding and getting real estate under contract rarely happens quickly. There are currently over 4500 Pensacola homes and condos for sale. If you want to take advantage of the tax credit, you need to move quickly. There are only 54 days left (from March 6, 2010) to get a home under contract by April 30, 2010. Next, the home must be closed by June 30. This is not a lot of time.
If you decide to purchase a Short Sale property, the chances of getting it under contract before the deadline are very slim. (See article Short Sales – Are They Worth It). However, there are many affordable conventional sales available, and quite a few bank owned properties on the market.
