That’s the question we’re asking as we launch the Coldwell Banker Buyer Bonus Sales Event on May 1. Immediately following the expiration of the home buyer tax credit, home sellers participating in the Coldwell Banker Buyer Bonus Sales Event will offer a credit of 3 percent (up to $8,000), when part of an accepted offer,  of their home’s purchase price to buyers who sign a contract before July 31, 2010.  There is no deadline for a closing date.

It’s a simple and fun way to materialize what this $8,000 credit can be.
