Will the $8,000 tax credit be extended?

On Oct. 5th, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stated that “there has been quite a bit of success” with the $8,000 tax credit, and added that President Obama "is considering extending it to help strengthen the economy and create jobs". So far though no official word on if or when that would happen. The tax credit is due to end December 1, 2009. Why wait to see if it is extended. Interest rates are creeping up, house prices are on the rise. Now is the time to move. Ever heard the poem "The Reluctant Real Estate Investors Lament" if you haven't, now would be a good time to read it.
