RISMEDIA, October 9, 2009-The best available tool for sustaining the still-fragile housing market is the $8,000 home buyer tax credit, and it is essential that Congress extend the credit into 2010, the National Association of Realtors® testified at a hearing of the U.S. House Small Business Committee recently.
