Realtor Marketing Faux Pas

Thought you missed the $8,000 tax credit available to new Buyers?

Not according to the Realtor ad I saw (several times) playing on the preview loop at the Hopkins movie theatre tonight.

Besides extolling her 20 years experience selling local real estate, the agent’s ad trumpeted that “there was still time to take advantage of the $8,000 Buyer tax credit.”

That would be the $8,000 tax credit that expired April 30.


Glad it was a Burnet agent, not an Edina one.
