Buyers -- Time is running out!

Potential home buyers who delay have a lot to lose.

First-time home buyer and move-up tax credits worth $8,000 and $6,500, respectively, expire April 30. Buyers who qualify get a dollar-for-dollar reduction in taxes, or a cash payment, if they don't pay enough taxes to cover the credit.

Other factors that should spur buyers:

Low mortgage rates. If the Federal Reserve stops buying mortgage-backed securities at the end of March, 30-year rates will almost certainly rise to more than 6%. Freddie Mac documented a decline in mortgage rates during the week ended March 4, with 30-year fixed home loans slipping to 4.97% from 5.05% and 15-year interest averaging 4.33%.
