The Indians to the Rescue!! 100% Finanacing; How will the $7500 Tax Credit help first time buyers…

If you add the 7500 tax credit that was part of the massive housing rescue package that President Bush signed in August, and the affordability of our under $250k market here in the Sacramento area; It makes absolutely no sense to rent!
