Maybe you missed out on Cash for Clunkers, but the $8,000 credit for first time home buyers is still available. This is one of the easiest programs to take advantage of and one that many will regret passing up when it expires. Those who are eligible simply claim the credit on their income taxes for a refund. The money can be used for anything. It doesn’t even have to be for the house. Together with low interest rates and historically low home prices, this represents the best opportunity we’re likely to see in our lifetimes. The deadline for closing on a home is November 30th. This means you need to get busy and find your property. Most closings are taking at least 45 days to complete from the time of an accepted sales agreement.

“Cheap” fun may be the best kind. Friday night a host of Reinhart people collaborated to organize a fabulous evening of dinner, dancing and great music. In keeping with leadership’s pledge to run a tight ship, there was very little money spent to throw a terrific party. Kurt and Grace Greaves donated the use of their eye-popping country estate in Saline for a Reinhart employee party. Music was provided by Audio High, a local up and coming band, which features Reinhart IT Director Chris Kolano on lead guitar. A keg of beer was donated by Wolverine Brewing Company and was quite delicious, I must say. Attendees contributed pot luck, mostly home-made food, and a good time was had by all. It ‘s estimated approximately 150 attended. The weather was perfect. It couldn’t have been a nicer evening.
Special thanks to the Greaves, Julie Picknell, ET Crowe, Louise Lutton and Chris Kolano. Chris, don’t even think about quitting your day job, although you probably could. Your band is first-rate!
