House votes to extend federal homebuyer tax credit

Yesterday, the House voted to extended the deadline to cash in on the federal homebuyer tax credit.

Today was the deadline to close for homebuyers who signed contracts by April 30. The vote aims to extend those $8,000 tax credits for three more months.

The measure now goes to the Senate where lawmakers are working on a bill to extend the credit.
