I'm not sure, but this is what I know:
You are not eligible for the credit if... (Coldwell Banker Article)
• If your income exceeds the phase-out range. This means joint filers with Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) of $170,000 and above and other taxpayers with MAGI of $95,000 and above.
• You may not buy your home from a close relative. This includes your spouse, parent, grandparent, child or grandchild.
• Vacation homes and rental properties are not eligible
• If you stop using your home as your main home.
• If you sell your home before the end of three years.
• If you are a nonresident alien you are not eligible
Let me know if this helps.
