It's Tax Credit Day and Ghost Day on this week's show. Andy highlights homes that qualify for historic tax credits that can save you real cash off the purchase price if buy one. Plus you can freeze your property tax for 5 years. Before you buy a house, or sell the one you're in, would you like to know if anybody died in it?

On this show Andy chats with Roy Condrey, founder and operator of DiedInHouse.com, the cadaver-Carfax of real estate. Plus some exclusive pre-list properties.
