News! If you plan on filing for your $8,000 or $6500 tax credit, you will be unable to e-file your return. You will have to do it the traditional way...snail mail! Also, be prepared for long delays..some as long as four months. Why the delay? For once it is not the IRS...instead it is folks who are scamming the system who are slowing down the process for all and weeding them out! Unbelievable!    If you plan on filing for your credit you must submit the 5405 Form ( can be found below) proof of residency, a signed mortgage statement & a copy of your drivers licence. You can still use the electronic forms, but is must be printed out and mailed with the items mentioned above. This all can take longer, but at least this will weed out the folks who will scam..and eventually the process will...

                        Was getting anxious and wanted to look into some stats for Enfield, Ct Sales for the last month..and this is what has been cooking   Total Homes Sold- 18 Median Sale Price- $192.250 Total Homes for Sale- 142 Average Days on Market for Sold Homes- 84  Sales at asking price- 2 Sales over asking price-2 Sales under asking price- 14 (Not too low below surprisingly! See chart) Homes to come on the market this month- 28   Simply broken down..that is what is going on. In the next week I will do a more accurate break down of the month. What I have seen is increased short sales and foreclosure activity in Enfield. I think that this is the reason for some homes getting above asking price. What I have also seen is normal homes that are not foreclosures come on the market th...
