Did you take advantage of the first-time home buyer tax credit in 2008? If so, you have to pay it back. I wish I was lying, but like George Washington, I can’t tell a lie. Also like George Washington, I have wooden teeth. But all the wooden teeth in the world can’t get me out of paying back this interest-free loan. If you’re in the same boat, read up on the details of this credit and the repayment requirements.
Each Monday in March, we encouraged you to watch HGTV’s Love It or List It for a chance to win $50,000 in HGTV’s Mortgage Madness Watch & Win Sweepstakes presented by Quicken Loans.
We also promised to let you know the winners of the weekly cash prize – and we don’t want to keep you waiting another minute!
These four lucky winners will be using their newfound $50,000 to pay off their mortgage, make home improvements or find a new place to call home:
- Brian M. from Arizona
- Connie D. from Maine
- Maria P. from New York
- Roberta M. from California
Congratulations to the winners and a big thanks to everyone who participated in Mortgage Madness, we hope you enjoyed playing along!
