Custom Modular Home Buyers Benefit From Home Buyer Tax Credit

TANEYTOWN, MD--(Marketwire - January 25, 2010) - With the recent extension of the home buyer tax credit, qualified buyers are experiencing huge advantages by purchasing a custom modular home from Custom Modular Direct. Their new modular homes not only cost them less in their monthly payments, but they can save on their electric, heating and cooling bills through a plant certified Energy Star program and be eligible to receive a Green mortgage credit through a participating lender.

Most utilities companies now have incentives and rebates available for Energy Star homes and tax credits are available for onsite completion of the Energy Star program. Energy Star qualified homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Building Code. All of these factors add up to substantial savings per month, and by reducing overall operating costs, home buyers have more leeway when working with a Green mortgage lender in their monthly payment qualifications.

"If you want a green home, in most cases you have to build it. Custom Modular Direct, a leading innovator in state-of-the-art custom modular homes and designs, offers custom plans and direct pricing on thousands of their custom modular homes," said Michele Jeffrey, a Custom Modular Direct company spokesperson. "By working with Custom Modular Direct's in-house design team, an owner/builder, whether for a small or estate-sized home, can incorporate all the important lifestyle and Green elements that they need into their one-of-a-kind, custom modular home."

The green benefits of energy efficient modular homes are endless, and the advantages of building a custom modular home, designed for specific lifestyle living are extremely beneficial and personally satisfying. With homes from Custom Modular Direct, buyers are able to change specifications, select options from different on-line suppliers and design a plan that works for them and works for their site.

Buyers seeking to build their custom modular home have until April 30th, 2010 to settle on their construction to permanent loan. By providing their HUD-1 closing statement and Form 5405 with their 2008 or 2009 tax return they will be submitting the necessary criteria to be eligible for the extended tax credit.
