NC Home Buyer Tax Credit *UPDATE*

In April I wrote about a bill introduced in the North Carolina General Assembly HB/485 that I dubbed Cash For Contractors. The sole purpose of the bill was to reward home buyers of a newly constructed home in North Carolina with a $10,000 state tax credit.


It appears that there is mature and wise leadership in the North Carolina General Assembly….at least today.

HB 485/SB 476 (New Home Purchase Stimulus)—creates a $10,000 state tax credit for new home purchase effective prospectively.

No longer under consideration.

Since relocating from Northern Michigan in 2007 I have lived in Garner (27529) with my wife Melanie and our four children. With personal production of 8MM in real estate sales across Southern Wake County I am considered to be a local market expert in the following communities: Garner (27529), Fuquay-Varina (27526), Holly-Springs (27540), Apex (27502), and Raleigh (27603, 27604, 27606, 27609, 27610)) which spans from downtown Raleigh to Willow Spring including Lake Wheeler.

  1. Ricardo, what is your source that this is no longer happening? I was looking forward to the potential $10000 on my new home.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I have it on good authority.

      First it wasn’t in the budget that was approved by vetor override last week and Second it came form the North Carolina Home Builders Associations Legislative update.

      I’m sure you will do far better than the $10,000 tax credit over 5 years because builders are so desperate to build homes. I have seen some pretty crazy prices on spec homes lately.

  2. It is about time they exercised some common sense. Who would this bill have benefited? The contractors and new home builders. Last time I checked, resales were taking a beating. It would have been disastrous had this bill grown legs.
