Madison Real Estate Management Company Uses Social Media to Launch Public Awareness Campaign on $8,000 Federal First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit

Company Provides Additional Incentives to First Time Homebuyers at Stonebridge and Harbor House Condominiums Who Take Advantage of Tax Credit

MADISON, WI--(Marketwire - September 1, 2009) - Recently, Bruner Realty, Inc., a Madison-based real estate development firm, launched an educational campaign targeting should-be first-time homebuyers. The social media campaign is intended to raise awareness about the $8,000 federal tax credit available to first-time homebuyers.

Jay Bruner, president of Bruner Realty, said that he has never seen a more opportune time for young people to invest in their future. "I've been developing quality affordable housing in Madison for 22 years, and I've never seen a more compelling environment for first-time homebuyers then what exists today. In addition to historically low prices and interest rates, the federal government is providing $8,000 of free money," said Bruner. "The frustrating part has been that many young people who should be taking advantage of this opportunity are sitting on the sidelines. The goal of this campaign is to make people realize that this is their last chance to take advantage of the program."

Bruner Realty is currently marketing two condominium developments in Madison -- Stonebridge Condominiums, located near East Towne Mall, and Harbor House Condominiums, located on the West side, near downtown. According to Bruner, both offer a full range of community amenities and allow buyers to customize their interiors.

"I encourage every potential first-time homebuyer to take advantage of the tax credit -- but there are two good reasons why someone should purchase their first home in our communities. First, at our price points, the tax credit is equal to nearly 10 percent of the purchase price which means buyers can, if they desire, build instant equity in their new homes. Second, not only can you take advantage of the tax credit, but our current incentives reduce closing costs and monthly payments," said Bruner.

Bruner Realty has become a market leader in social media marketing and has received national attention for its investment and commitment. Social media outlets allow Bruner Realty to communicate most effectively with its target market: young professionals who are currently renting. According to the company, both Stonebridge and Harbor House Condominiums offer pricing low enough that the mortgage, maintenance fees and tax allotments combined are equal to the rent one would pay on a comparable apartment.
